Twenty years ago, the body of an article on sexy television scenes would have been painfully short. In 2016, the new golden age of television and the slow disintegration of social barriers has brought with it some outrageously sexy television scenes.
Here are the top ten moments that made us desperate for a cold shower – be warned, this list might be best enjoyed alone (and definitely away from the office):
10. Buffy and Spike bring the house down
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (season 6, episode 9)
Buffy and Spike’s love affair in season 6 ultimately never came to much, but did reward us with some deliciously sexy scenes – including this one where their physical sparring became extremely heated (much to the detriment of the building they were copulating in).
9. Megan teases Don by cleaning the apartment in very little.
Mad Men (season 5, episode 1)
The first episode of season 5 promised that Megan and Don’s relationship hadn’t dampened in the wait between seasons, as Megan took to performing her household duties in the most enticing of outfits. Naturally, this moment got saucy pretty quickly.
8. Fitz and Olivia get electric.
Scandal (season 2, episode 14)
Sex scenes in Shondaland are always something special, but the illicit sex scenes between Olivia and the President, Fitz, really steal the show with their electricity. In this scene, literal sparks flew as the two got passionate in an electrical cupboard.
7. Claire and Jamie consummate their marriage.
Outlander (season 1, episode 7)
Outlander dedicated an entire episode to the wedding night of Jamie and Claire, much to the delight of women everywhere. Claire finally gave into passion after marrying the hunky highlander, and the resulting scenes are something best watched alone and in comfort.
6. Marnie gets a treat.
Girls (season 4, episode 1)
Girls has had some pretty out there scenes (just don’t try searching for them on google), but Allison’s affair with musical partner Desi led to some hot and unusual-for-television scenes. Here, they engaged in some very daring foreplay.
5. Brian and Justin hook up for the first time.
Queer as Folk US (season 1, episode 1)
When the inexperienced teenage Justin meets the older, promiscuous Brian in season one of Queer as Folk, both their lives changed forever. Life changing moments have never been this sexy.
4. Alice and Dana finally get it on.
The L Word (season 2, episode 5)
The L Word has countless scenes appropriate for a list like this, but Alice and Dana finally getting it on in season two has to be one of the best.
3. Introducing Oberyn and Ellaria.
Game of Thrones (season 4, episode 3)
Oberyn Martell made his mark on racy fantasy series Game of Thrones by arriving right in the middle of political hotspot King’s Landing and arranging several orgies. The action between Oberyn and lover Ellaria was always electric to watch, but neither discriminated when it came to taking other partners.
2. Everybody has sex at the same time in a montage.
Sons of Anarchy (season 7, episode 10)
You know the saying that more is better? In Sons of Anarchy‘s final season, we got a three minute sex montage including all the couples having sex. What a send off.
1. Alex and Piper get it on in the shower.
Orange is the New Black (season 1, episode 1)
The now infamous Netflix scene was surprisingly short, but ridiculously sexual, as Piper flashed back to an earlier point in her relationship with criminal companion Alex Vause. The two would later reunite in prison for more R-rated action.
