What does Netflix and Chill mean?

What comes to your mind when you hear the term Netflix & Chill? Are you thinking of a cozy movie night on the couch with a blanket and pizza? Or do you think of a hot date with your crush, which potentially could lead to sexual activities? Both are legitimate. Although, most of you will probably think of the latter statement.

We wonder since when the term Netflix & Chill has become a synonym for sexual activities. Everyone knows what it means. However, do you actually know how you know it? We do not. That’s why we’re going back in time to better understand the magical world of Netflix and Chill.

“I’m about to log onto Netflix and chill for the rest of the night.”

Originally, the term had no sexual meaning, but simply referred to a cozy movie night.

In mid-2014, the term Netflix and Chill became more and more common in the African-American black twitter community. “Chill” was written in italics to make the sexual meaning clear (see Wikipedia).

50 First Dates is a comedy movie from 2004 starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. The movie is about Lucy (Drew Barrymore), who suffers from amnesia due to an accident.

The film tells a heartwarming and humorous story that creates a romantic atmosphere.

Find out if ‘Disney + and Thrust’ is your thing

If you and your date like the following films and genres, then “Disney+ and Thrust” is the right choice for you.

Marvel Movies

A Disney+ subscription definitely pays off for all Marvel fans. Except for the Spiderman films, all movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are available on Disney+.

8 of the 12 films from the X-Men film series are available:

  • X-Men (2000)
  • X-Men 2 (2003)

  • X-Men: Future is Past (2014)
  • Deadpool (2016)
  • X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

Star Wars Movies - May the “Thrust” be with you…

The range of Star Wars movies and TV-shows is unbeatable. For Star Wars fans, we recommend the TV-Show “The Mandalorian”, which was broadcast on Disney Plus for the first time on November 12, 2019.

In addition to the Star Wars movies, there are also sequels such as “Solo: A Star Wars Story” (2018) and other Star Wars series.

Disney Classics

There is no better way to get to know each other than to indulge in childhood memories together. Check out your favorite Disney classic and start cuddling.

If you are interested in remakes of Disney classics, we recommend the following:

  • Susi and Strolch (2019)
  • The Lion King (2019)
  • Dumbo (2019)
  • Beauty and the Beast (2017)


Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Wall-E, Monster Inc. and many more are films that you can watch again and again. Fortunately, you are never too old for Pixar films.

National Geographic

Animal and nature documentaries are ideal for a Disney+ and Thrust date. Not too exciting, but still nice to watch. We recommend the documentation “Planet of the Birds”, which explains, among other things, the mating behavior of different bird species. Maybe you can learn something from the birds for your foreplay. They are definitely more creative than people when it comes to sex.
