Back in the days of yore, it was a rarity to even see a post-sex "we're under the covers" scene on television. But TV has gotten more progressive and open-minded about intercourse yay! In other words, sex is normal, and there's no reason to shy away from it on television.
Want to watch something seductive that stays spicy over plus hours of streaming? We're not simply talking nuditylike on Game of Thronesor sleazier series like Californication and Entourage ; nor shows about people who pay for it, like Hung or The Girlfriend Experience ; and definitely not anything under the "HBO After Dark" banner. No, sexy is a little bit different.
It was a scene that made many cringe, but it signaled a transformation in the television landscape. Some of this is a result of technological changes. New streaming services, not bound by industry rules and norms, are taking bigger risks, such as the Amazon show Transparent about a middle-aged father coming out as transgender.

In the late 90s, it wasn't uncommon to see bare breasts or butts in sex scenes.
Sometimes it's very premeditated and other times it is all-together a bit of a mess. So, when a TV show comes along that reflects what sex can really be like, it's something that should be celebrated. Here are five UK TV shows with the most realistic sex scenes.

Americans might have a reputation for being prudes compared to us liberal Brits… but that's complete and utter nonsense. We've already examined the sexiest shows to make it on to British TVbut to be honest, they have nothing on the complete and utter filth that's been produced over in the States…. But it's not just the pure volume of sex scenes but the content within them: Marnie being rimmed by Desi is a gif that's going to haunt us for a long, long time.
The TV shows on Netflix are a main reason to love the streaming site.
