We've come a long way since the days where Lucy and Ricky Ricardo weren't even allowed to share a double bed on the small screen. From the plethora of prostitutes on shows like Narcos and Game of Thrones, to the libidinous love scenes in Outlander and Reign, there's no shortage of sexy time on TV these days. The year isn't even over yet, but below is a round up of 10 of the hottest TV sex scenes of 2016 (in no particular order) to keep you satisfied until New Year. Enjoy, you filthy animals. ;)
10. Outlander - Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan
The Scene: While Season 2 might not have had quite the sex appeal as the first, Clare and Jamie Fraser — the TV couple that put the sex lives of all ordinary humans to shame — manage to get their groove back in this sensual scene.
9. Orange Is The New Black - Yael Stone and John Magaro
The Scene: Okay, so it's not quite as hot as Piper and Alex in the library, but still. There's something to be said for being able to get where you need to go without even touching each other. You get yours, Morello!
8. Easy - Basically Everyone
The Scenes: Nearly every episode of this eight-part Netflix original features some sort of carnal action, but here's a sample of some of the highlights.
7. Luke Cage - Mike Colter and Simone Missick
The Scene: Just because Jessica might not be in Luke Cage's solo series doesn't mean we have to be deprived of a shirtless Mike Colter! Here he is gettin' it on with Misty Knight.
6. Reign - Adelaide Kane and Toby Regbo
The Scene: This romantic interlude between Mary and Francis is bittersweet, since it will ultimately lead to Francis's fatal ambush in the forest.
5. Narcos - Wagner Moura and Paulina Gaitan
The Scene: After Pablo escapes from prison, he and Tata steal a passionate moment together in which Pablo makes a promise he can't keep.
4. Stranger Things - Natalia Dyer and Joe Keery
The Scene: Nancy finally agrees to give Steve her V-Card, unaware that there is an evil demagorgon cavorting around outside and gobbling up her BFF Barb.
3. Peaky Blinders - Lots and lots of people
The Scene: The heroes of the show engaged in a candle-lit, alcohol-feuled orgy in Episode 5. Our condolences to anyone who had to watch this scene with their parents.
2. American Horror Story: Roanoke - Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr.
The Scene: Matt and Shelby's love making is cut short when evil spirits begin to terrorize the couple.
1. Game Of Thrones - Gemma Whelan and Extra
