It’s always difficult to capture every good sex scene with the plethora of sexy TV on nowadays, but we dove in deep in the name of entertainment!
So as you get ready to ring in 2016, let’s take a look at the 10 most TV sex scenes of the past year.
Get ready to be hot and bothered.
1. The Duke of Burgundy
It would be difficult to pick a standout sex scene in Peter Strickland’s remarkable The Duke Of Burgundy, because the whole movie functions as an extended sex scene.
2. Cosima and Shay, Orphan Black
Honestly, seeing Cosima move on from Delphine was a tough pill to swallow. But a spoonful of Shay really helped the medicine go down.
3. Annalise and Eve, How to Get Away with Murder
The whole season could just be these two kissing and we’d still show up every week.
Watch, watch, and watch again
4. Big Boo & Rachel, Orange Is the New Black
Orange Is the New Black has always delivered great lesbian sex scenes, but the show upped it in Season 3, Episode 4 when fans got insight into Big Boo’s past. Big Boo had a sex scene in a flashback where she used a strap-on dildo with her girlfriend at the time.
5. Nomi and Amanita, Sense8
Netflix pulled a lesbian hat trick this year, with this infamous scene that puts the pan in pansexual. While it’s not strictly limited to our favorite couple, it definitely turns up the heat.
6. Syd and Ali, Transparent
In a show riddled with narcissism and snark, it’s refreshing to see some sweet authentic kissing between long time friends-cum-lovers Syd and Ali.
7. Dianna Agron and Paz de La Huerta, Bare
Dianna Agron naked with another woman, need we say more.
8. Piper and Alex, Orange Is the New Black
Again we turn to OITNB, and if you’re going to have prison sex, why not library prison sex, hey? And when that heated romp is between, Piper and Alex its guaranteed to make our year.
9. The Countess, Donovan, & Their Victims, American Horror Story: Hotel
In the first episode of American Horror Story: Hotel, Lady Gaga’s character, the Countess, was introduced with a bang. The blood-drinking woman hit the town with her boy toy of the decade, Matt Bomer’s Donovan, and seduced an attractive couple at an outdoor movie.
10. Jeryn and Pam, Jessica Jones
Melissa Rosenberg’s outstanding Netflix series Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) as the titular superheroine, not only features the creepiest baddie in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also boasts the MCU’s most dynamic, complex female character; a badass woman brimming with agency who enjoys sex just as much as she does administering justice.
But our pick isn’t JJ, but a scene between Jeryn and Pam. Okay, to be clear, this is an evil manipulative sex scene, but it manipulates an evil character, so it we feel okay with how damn hot it is.
The first hour of Todd Haynes’s expertly crafted Carol traces the burgeoning love affair between the titular Jersey housewife (Cate Blanchett) and a reticent Big Apple shopgirl, (Rooney Mara). It’s all furtive glances and sumptuous gazes—that is, until the two hit the road, putting constricting 1950s society in their rearview. It all builds to a sequence in a motel room, a paroxysm of unbridled pleasure that feels nothing short of monumental.
