Let’s face it: a global pandemic can really have a negative impact on a person’s sex life. The fact that social distancing has become the norm (and there’s few dingy clubs or bars to really set the mood for meeting people), the lack of opportunities to get it on is kind of disheartening.

Cue Netflix – one of the few things that have really had our back during this very weird and scary time. The streaming platform is no stranger to including some seriously steamy scenes within its content, to the point where most of us have to furiously check content warnings before watching with family in order to avoid a really awkward situation. As the rest of the world tries to fill a certain void, it’s no surprise that Netflix’s latest Polish thriller, 365 Days (Polish: 365 Dni), became the most-watched movie on the platform just two days after its June 7 debut.

Based on an erotic novel by Blanka Lipinska, the film centers on a Sicilian mafia boss, Massimo (Michele Morrone), who is obsessed with a Polish sales agent named Laura (Anna-Maria Sieklucka). During Laura’s birthday trip to Sicily, Massimo kidnaps her and gives her 365 days to fall in love with him. Obviously, romantic drama ensues paired with an abundance of sexy scenes. Admittedly, the plotline is quite problematic and the acting is certainly not Oscar-worthy, as confirmed by its zero percent rating on the popular review site Rotten Tomatoes. But if you’re into, say, an early 2010’s Wattpad fanfiction vibe, maybe give it a shot.

No matter how real those now-infamous softcore sex scenes look, the cinematographer of the film, Bartek Cierlica, told Variety that it’s all just a product of great camera angles and movie magic. After speaking with directors Barbara Białowąs and Tomasz Mandes on how the film should be done, Cierlica said, “We didn’t want to create porn, but at the same time, we wanted to do justice to the book that is pretty full of very intimate and passionate sex descriptions.”

Needless to say, social media users aren’t totally convinced. In honor of this welcomed skepticism, we’ve compiled a few of the best 365 Days GIFs that encompass just how sexy the movie can get.

1. A steamy shower scene where a bit of teasing gets hot and heavy. Also one of the tamer scenes compared to the rest of the movie, which says a lot. (GIF by real4eign on Tumblr)

2. THE boat scene. The iconic five-minute-long rollercoaster of emotions was by far one of the most memorable things about this film. (GIF by lovemedown on Tumblr)

3. A bit of BDSM that makes Fifty Shades of Grey look innocent. (GIF by taraknowless on Tumblr)

4. Laura Biel, the queen of provoking Massimo to the point of losing his sh*t. (GIF by sethkate on Tumblr)

5. The fact that there are other people just a couple of feet away from them in this scene is absolutely wild. (GIF by solicitys on Tumblr)

6. Honestly, the lingerie set in this scene is incredible and deserved much more screen time. (GIF by 365dnisource on Tumblr)

7. Proof that intimacy and romance can really thrive on a luxurious bathroom counter. (GIF by solicitys on Tumblr)
