People love a little bit of raunchy content. The sheer popularity of titles like Bridgerton and Sex/Life proves that. Some of you may be watching for the romantic(ish) storylines, maybe. (And if you are, may I suggest this list of romantic titles on Netflix?) But, if you’re after some saucy content with sex scenes aplenty, this list of sexy shows and movies will be more your speed.
Read on if you’re after a list of series that’ll get your heart racing with its sex scenes.
Shows stacked with spicy sex scenes
This show about a female erotic magazine is full of spicy scenes that are sure to satisfy.
Check out the series synopsis below:
MINX is set in 1970s Los Angeles and centers around Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), an earnest young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher (Jake Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women.
Of course, Bridgerton is first on the list. The period drama is as horny as they come. Forget spicy sex scenes; Bridgerton Season 1 had an entire sex montage that had fans sweating. If you’re after a list of the best scenes in the show you can find that here.
For those new to the series, the show’s synopsis reads as follows:
During the Regency era in England, eight close-knit siblings of the powerful Bridgerton family attempt to find love.
This show didn’t get a great response and only lasted for one season, but it does offer some spicy scenes.
Here’s the synopsis for you:
Therapist Jean Holloway develops dangerous and intimate relationships with the people in her patients’ lives in this simmering psychological thriller.
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story
Continuing on with the period drama trend, Bridgerton spin-off Queen Charlotte has certainly managed to deliver in the sex scene space once again. Not only in the spicy scenes between Queen Charlotte and King George but between Brimsley and Reynolds, also. While the show has not been without criticism for some scenes, there is plenty of spicy content worth tuning in for.
Another obvious one, but when thinking of memorable sex scenes, who can go past the seductive Outlander? Claire and Jamie’s relationship has caught and held the attention of fans for 6-going-on-7 seasons now.
You can’t deny there’s an irresistible quality there.
Outlander’s synopsis reads as follows:
Claire Beauchamp Randall, a nurse in World War II, mysteriously goes back in time to Scotland in 1743. There, she meets a dashing Highland warrior and gets drawn into an epic rebellion.
The L Word: Generation Q
The modern sequel to the original series The L Word, The L Word: Generation Q quickly became a (sexy) fan favourite after hitting screens in 2019.
The series synopsis reads as follows:
Ten years after the previous events, the original group of friends is joined by new faces as they continue their journey through the trials of life and love in Los Angeles.
Vida, which came to television screens in 2018 and stars Melissa Barrera, Mishel Prada and Karen Ser Anzoategui, is another series that is broadly recognised for its sex scenes. It’s credited as being a passionate show with powerful representation of LGBTQ+ folks within the Latinx community.
The synopsis reads as follows:
Vida is a drama series about two Mexican-American siblings from East Los Angeles. Party girl Lyn lives a carefree life in the Bay Area. She couldn’t be more different than, or distanced from, her sister Emma, with whom she has no relationship. A death in their family forces them to return to their old stomping grounds, where they confront long-repressed feelings and learn the surprising truth about their mother’s identity.
Yes, this show may have beautiful friendships at its core but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t also have some sexy AF content to offer. Issa Rae’s creation is filled with spicy scenes featuring everything from awkward sex, to touching intimate moments.
Insecure’s synopsis reads as follows:
Best friends Issa and Molly belong to the same social background and face similar experiences. They always strive to find solutions to their problems by facing them together
Watch the show on Binge in Australia.
A frustrating but sexy series about a couple of people with wild chemistry but no communication skills, Normal People captured the attention of the masses when it first dropped.
The show’s synopsis reads as follows:
Following Marianne and Connell, from different backgrounds but the same small town in Ireland, as they weave in and out of each other’s romantic lives and start to grow up.
I didn’t say this list was full of good sexy shows, did I? While there are loads of problems with it, there’s no denying Sex/Life and its many hot and heavy sex scenes captured the interest of audiences all over.
The show’s synopsis reads as follows:
A suburban wife and mother takes a fantasy-charged trip down memory lane that sets her present on a collision course with her wild-child past.
