7 TV Shows That Have Seriously Sexy Sex

By: Marla Pachter / June 1, 2013

With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.

But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers.

7. “Mad Men.” This scene of Betty Draper deep in the throes of her fantasies while doing laundry is one of the sexiest things we’ve ever seen. Sure, the men on this show are largely jerks, but they sure know to give it to the ladies.
