Mindhunter

Holden (Jonathan Groff) and his girlfriend Debbie’s (Hannah Gross) sex scenes are steamy and sprinkled throughout the Netflix series. And they’re not afraid to try new things, if you know what I mean.

The Handmaid’s Tale

Offred (Elisabeth Moss) and Nick’s (Max Minghella) affair started out as a fertility arrangement when Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) thinks her husband is sterile. Then Offred returns again of her own volition for a consensual experience and enjoys the intimacy.

The Bold Type
Freeform

The Bold Type

Kat (Aisha Dee) and Adena (Nikohl Boosheri) meet while working on a business project, and we immediately feel the chemistry. Their first sexual experience together is romantic and vulnerable.

Outlander
Starz

Outlander

Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) were separated for 20 years before reuniting in 18th-century Scotland. The showrunners gave fans an extra-long reunion episode, and it was most certainly needed. Besides the physical aspect, these two needed to get to know each other again—from talking about their daughter, Brianna, to Jamie revealing he has another child.

Riverdale
The CW

Riverdale

Archie’s (KJ Apa) dad may have just been shot, but that didn’t stop the teen from engaging in some shower action with girlfriend Veronica (Camila Mendes).

Game of Thrones
HBO

Game of Thrones

Yes, these two are related. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) aunt, but they don’t know it. The attraction was immediate between these two, and it was only a matter of time before they landed between the sheets.

The Sinner
USA

The Sinner

This USA summer show was a LOT to handle. From an incestuous sister moment to oral sex, this show was no-nonsense and extremely explicit. In the final episode, Cora (Jessica Biel) has a drug-fueled sexual encounter with two men and her sister.

SMILF

SMILF

Bridgette (Frankie Shaw) is trying to do her best, kind of. The single mom is barely keeping it together and is sexually frustrated. In one episode, she lets go of all her cares and has sex with a college student whom she used to tutor only a couple of years back … in his parents’ bedroom.
