People Are Freaking Out Over The "Bridgerton" Library Scene

They were doing some pretty heavy hand-holding in there.

Hey there. If you haven't watched Bridgerton yet, watch out, because there are major SPOILERS ahead!

There are countless reasons why fans are obsessed with Bridgerton. The costumes, the music, the romantic speeches...

But there's one element that really has people talking: the "Wildest Dreams" sex montage and THAT. LIBRARY. SCENE.

episode six #Bridgerton the writers:

If you'll remember (tbh, how could you forget?), Episode 6 of Bridgerton sees Simon and Daphne on their honeymoon. In Bridgerton's world, that means they spend basically every waking moment having sex all over their lavish English estate.

They're outdoors in the rain.

They're on the (very uncomfortable-looking!) stone staircase.

And of course, all of this is set to Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" in orchestral form.

spent the first day of the new year watching bridgerton start to finish, what's really stuck with me is the montage of multiple sex scenes (to an orchestral taylor swift arrangement) explicitly and repeatedly demonstrating the pull-out method

The montage is amazing overall, but there's one part that really struck a chord with fans: the library scene.

they had no right making the sex scenes look so good in Bridgerton, now i want to live in a manor house and get railed in a library on a bookshelf ladder, cheers x

People drew comparisons to the library sex scene in Atonement, because how could you not?

I mean...

People had jokes about what the house staff were thinking:

the maids at the door when daphne and simon were at it again in the library #BRIDGERTON

Others were just concerned about the books:

But to me, the most important thing about that salacious library scene is this: IT WAS THE FIRST SCENE PHOEBE DYNEVOR AND REGÉ-JEAN PAGE SHOT TOGETHER.

THE LIBRARY WAS THERE FIRST SCENE TOGETHER #Bridgerton

Twitter: @HartBrekker

Seriously, their first day on set together as Daphne and Simon, these two filmed a sex scene on a library ladder. Also, it was shot in the library at the Reform Club of London, which houses one of Shakespeare's first folios.

Anyway, I think we can all agree that we'll never look at library ladders, stone staircases, outdoor gazebos in the rain, or Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" the same again.

all i can say is after watching bridgerton i would like a library room with a ladder in my house......
