25 Hottest TV Sex Scenes Of 2015, Ranked From Worst To Best

Cars, alleys, and libraries — sex was any and everywhere in 2015. Not complaining, just saying!

Posted on

25. Claire and Frank, House of Cards


When it happened: Season 3, Episode 2, "Chapter 28"

What made it hot: Claire. If Claire looked at me the way she looks at Frank at any point in my life I'd sprout angel wings and fly to a better, brighter place.

24. Marnie and Desi, Girls

HBO / Via

When it happened: Season 4, Episode 1, "Iowa"

What made it hot: OK, to be honest, most of this was not hot, as Jezebel so deftly pointed out. Desi really goes to town on Marnie's ass in a way that makes you borderline nervous for her. It's the fast, uncontrolled motions of a first-timer who's just excited to be invited to this thing. But it did put ass-eating on the plate for straight people, so to speak, and therefore it deserves a mention.

23. Sam and Gilly, Game of Thrones

HBO / Via

When it happened: Season 5, Episode 7, "The Gift"

What made it hot: This episode is titled "The Gift," and what a gift it was. Sweet, bookish, celibate Sam finally has sex with equally sweet Gilly. It's enough to make you yell, "Get that Sam D, Gilly!" Get it, girl.

22. Don and Diana, Mad Men

AMC / Via

When it happened: Season 7, Episode 8, "Severance"

What made it hot: It wouldn't be the final season of Mad Men if we didn't see Don becoming emotionally attached to a woman he barely knows. Enter Diana, the waitress, whom he has sex with in an alley, and then fantasizes about starting a new life with. The alley, while not a "sexy" choice of locale, did have two attractive people in it.


21. Cookie and Lucious, Empire

Fox / Via

When it happened: Season 1, Episode 7, "Our Dancing Days"

What made it hot: Cookie and Lucious are at their finest when they're playing off each other. And when they finally hook up again, after so long, it's unclear if it's hate sex, love sex, or a little bit of both. It also didn't hurt that Anika totally caught them in the act either...

19. Elliot and Shayla, Mr. Robot

USA / Via

When it happened: Season 1, Episode 1, ""

What made it hot: It's not what happens onscreen, but more the aftermath that makes it hot. Elliot finally looking at ease, Shayla soundly sleeping, and glorious shirtless splendor make this worthwhile.

18. Becky and J Poppa, Empire


When it happened: Season 2, Episode 6, "A High Hope for a Low Heaven"

What made it hot: We usually only get to see Becky in the Empire offices, which is a damn shame. Because as this episode proved, Becky's at her best when she's on a sexy roof with sexy J Poppa. There wasn't any actual sex to see in this scene, but we can imagine what happens off camera.


17. Adam and Rachel, UnREAL

When it happened: Season 1, Episode 9, "Princess"

What made it hot: Rachel is an unhinged, self-destructive, sociopath, and Adam is basically the same. This was a hookup that was nine episodes in the making, and it was great to see Rachel with a man who doesn't have the personality of a potato (sorry, I'm not sorry, Jeremy).

16. Alicia and Johnny, The Good Wife


When it happened: Season 6, Episode 14, "Mind's Eye"

What made it hot: My my, Alicia certainly does have a fun fantasy life. As was the case with this fantasy scene she had about Johnny. Clearly, we all have to get better at daydreaming so we can be Florrick level.

15. Michaela and Caleb, How to Get Away With Murder


When it happened: Season 2, Episode 8, "Hi, I'm Philip"

What made it hot: These two eye-fucked the shit out of each other this season, and it all culminated in this delightful moment. Plus, Caleb gave Michaela her first big "O."

14. Olivia and Fitz, Scandal


When it happened: Season 5, Episode 1, "Heavy Is the Head"

What made it hot: Whether or not you're Team Fitz doesn't matter — because this moment, when Fitz and Olivia are able to have sex and not be shy about it, has been a long time coming. And the opening scene of this episode was just the two of them rolling around, having sex, and not giving AF who knows.


13. Felicity and Oliver, Arrow


When it happened: Season 3, Episode 20, "The Fallen"

What made it hot: If you're an Olicity fan than truly nothing beats this scene. You'd been waiting for Oliver and Felicity to hook up for THREE. LONG. SEASONS. and then it finally happened. It was worth the wait.

12. The Countess and Donovan, American Horror Story: Hotel


When it happened: Season 5, Episode 1, "Checking In"

What made it hot: OK, yes, Elizabeth and Donovan are vampires who kill people. And yes, two of those people happened to be the ones they slept with in this scene. But let's be honest, those people died happy because they had Elizabeth and Donovan on top of them, right?

11. Paul and Will, Days of Our Lives

NBC / Via

When it happened: Episode #1.12501

What made it hot: What a tangled web Paul and Will weave, not just because they're getting tangled in the sheets. But because Paul, a pro-baseball player who's also closeted, opens up to Will, who's interviewing him for a profile. Pretty sure the details of how he came out to Will will remain out of the story, though...

10. Dorian Gray and Angelique, Penny Dreadful

Desert Wolf Productions

When it happened: Season 2, Episode 8, "Memento Mori"

What made it hot: When Dorian Gray wants something, he isn't shy about it. Such was the case with Angelique. Angelique reveals to Dorian that she's trans and Dorian eventually shows her his true self too. Even though it leads to her untimely demise, the sex they have is electric.


9. Nomi, Lito, Will, and Wolfgang in Sense8

Netflix / Via

When it happened: Season 1, Episode 6, "Demons"

What made it hot: There's something kind of magical about an orgy that transcends gender and sexual preference in favor of pure pleasure, don't you think?

8. Karma, Shane, Wade, Faking It

MTV / Via

When it happened: Season 2, Episode 19, "The Deep End"

What made it hot: Karma has not one, but two steamy flashbacks to the threesome she had with Shane and Wade. Proving that life really is what you make of it, and we need to make more threesomes of it. (Bonus points for Karma standing up to slut shamers after this scene as well.)

7. Tasha and Shawn, Power

CBS Television Studios

When it happened: Season 2, Episode 6, "Why Her?"

What made it hot: Car sex doesn't exactly seem like the most comfortable kind, but Tasha and Shawn make it look easy with a dash of dangerous. It's also an especially important scene, given what happens to poor Shawn later in the season.

6. Elizabeth and the hotel manager, The Americans


When it happened: Season 3, Episode 11, "One Day in the Life of Anton Baklanov"

What made it hot: When a man says, "I want you wet," there's really nowhere to go but up. Elizabeth was using him for access, but she got a whole lot more, if you catch my drift...😉  


5. Mary Jane and Cutty Buddy, Being Mary Jane

Akil Productions

When it happened: Season 2, Episode 3, "Mary Jane Knows Best"

What made it hot: Our first introduction to Cutty Buddy was a GOOD one. He and Mary Jane get busy all over his apartment, saving the best for last with this up against the window scene. With friends like Cutty, who needs anyone else?

4. Kevin and Patrick, Looking

HBO / Via

When it happened: Season 2, Episode 3, "Looking Top to Bottom"

What made it hot: Poor Patrick is usually left feeling second best when it comes to his affair with Kevin. But in this episode, Patrick takes the upper hand, and tops Kevin. Checkmate.

3. Claire and Jaime, Outlander


When it happened: Season 1, Episode 10, "By the Pricking of My Thumbs"

What made it hot: See that GIF? That's Jamie's head, in between Claire's legs. He stays down there for a good, long while, and it's a really nice scene as a result.

2. Cosima and Shay, Orphan Black

BBC / Via

When it happened: Season 3, Episode 7, "Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate"

What made it hot: Honestly, seeing Cosima move on from Delphine was a tough pill to swallow. But a spoonful of Shay really helped the medicine go down.

1. Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, Jessica Jones


When it happened: Season 1, Episode 3, "AKA It's Called Whiskey"

What made it hot: The sex scenes in Jessica Jones are raw and, as Jessica states herself, athletic. But no other scene was quite as athletic as the one where she and Luke break the bed. Hey, that's what happens when superheroes have sex, right?
