The Best TV Show Sex Scenes

When it comes to TV shows, it feels like we’ve all had our fair share of vanilla sex scenes. These days we barely bat an eye at the fully clothed heavy petting — you don’t even have time to grab your vibrator before it’s over and done.

There’s something really hot about coming across a particularly spicy sex scene that stops you in your tracks. It’s so passionate that you have to rewind and watch it again because you were too busy getting yourself off instead of paying attention to the plot.

Here’s our list of the best TV show sex scenes for women that made our fannies flutter. Sometimes twice.

Outlander sex scene

Outlander features some of the most real and passionate TV show sex scenes on air today as it heavily caters to the female gaze.

Claire and Jamie’s chemistry is something that needs to be studied but for now, we’re getting off to it. This is one show where we refuse to pick the hottest scene so help yourself. Season one episode seven, season one episode 11, season three episode four…the list goes on but they’re all so. Damn. Hot.

The L Word may be more than a decade old, but it will forever wear the badge of honor as the first TV series to feature an ensemble cast of lesbian and bisexual females. The series had plenty of hot sex scenes with one of our favorites being Alice and Dana’s hours-long sex marathon. It’s fun, it’s kinky, and it gives us lots of ideas.

Bridgerton sex scene on stairs

Bridgerton is a top contender for having some of the hottest TV show sex scenes currently on Netflix. There are many orgasm-worthy moments this show has to offer, but the staircase scene takes the cake. We subtracted half a bean because the staircase, although sexy in its own architectural right, should have had Daphne’s back spasming in pain. Still, the extended shots of Simon aggressively eating her pussy out make it all worth it. Catch us watching Bridgerton sex over porn any day of the week.

The Diplomat

The Diplomat sex scene

The sex scene between Kate and Hal in The Diplomat lacks some fiery passion, but hear us out. There is something so real and primal about Kate taking control. She climbs on top of Hal, lifts her dress (isn’t wearing any underwear), and puts him inside her. Sex isn’t always lacy lingerie and banging it out like porn stars. Going back to basics is hot too.

Sex/Life sex scene in kitchen

Sex/Life is so fun to watch because it’s constantly treating you to gasps, moans, and thrusts that have you wet in a second. Still, there’s something extra sensual and real about Billie and Majid turning their flirtatious and naked cooking into oral sex that you can’t pull your eyes away from.

Grey's Anatomy sex scene

For a show full of hookups, we’re often left to use our imaginations for the actual sex scenes. So, when Meredith and Derek have sex in the exam room, we’re treated to one of the show’s hottest moments. From Derek pulling down Mer’s panties to watching them thrust into each other, we have no choice but to appreciate this gift from Shonda Rhimes (and get ourselves off to it every time we re-watch the show, which is often.)

Queen Charlotte sex scene

What is it about historical dramas having some of the best TV show sex scenes? This episode is packed full of Queen Charlotte and King Geroge having sex on even days of the week, in an attempt to get pregnant. We can’t decide which scene is hottest: the sound of the buttons flying off of George’s shirt because he can’t go down on Charlotte fast enough, Charlotte being bent over the dining table in front of their entire staff, or Charlotte taking it upon herself to ride George in the steaming hot bath — fully clothed.

Sense 8 orgy sex scene

Sense8 wasn’t known for shying away from sex scenes, or orgies for that matter. Still, the final orgy in the series finale was hot as hell. You can’t help but feel like you were there with that dripping wet rainbow dildo. If you know, you know.

Game of Thrones Missandei Grey Worm sex scene

It took Game of Thrones seven long seasons to get their sex scenes right. After years of build-up, it was Missandei and Grey Worm’s fireside missionary sex that finally had us reaching our climax. Between the vulnerability, the slow undressing, and the oral sex on a woman (amen), this scene alone is so real, and the only reason to re-watch the series.

Orange is the New Black sex scene

Let’s end it with a bang. What TV show has the most sex scenes? Orange Is the New Black comes pretty close. At the bare minimum, it secures the spot for the most lesbian sex scenes in a women’s prison.
 

While there’s no shortage of sexy content in this show, we have to give the hottest scene to Piper and Alex for their animalistic library sex. The anger, the hair pulling, and the oral sex in a garbage bag are things most people will never experience, but closing your eyes and pretending Alex Vause is eating you out will do.
