The Vampire Diaries is full of loss, tragedy, drama and blood. Lots of blood. However, despite all the tears, screams, and wooden stakes, vampires still know how to have fun... In other ways. When they're not busy killing each other off, they make sure to — uhmm — keep busy.
The CW characters in Mystic Falls have pretty much all hooked up with one another, turning the show into a bloody orgy. Who ever said vampires were incapable of sharing? Their methods of "sharing" shed some light on why these are creatures of the night.
Let's take a look at the most epically heated highlights, starting with lucky number 13.
13. Elena Explores Her Dark Side
Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) shows Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) the "fun" side to being a vampire, encouraging her to finally indulge in her cravings. You can see Elena ecstatically letting go and feeling all the highs associated with her new state while her chemistry with Damon is undeniable.
12. Vicki Dances Around In Her Undies
Vicki Donovan (Kayla Ewell) may not have predicted her near future during this dance, but the careless joie de vivre is oddly sexual. Without a care in the world, all you can do is dance Tom Cruise style. Kind of. But more seductively.
11. Matt & Caroline Get Bored Together
In one of those rare occasions were TVD characters are simply sitting around and watching TV, they're bound get a little bored. Luckily, Caroline Forbes (Candice King) and Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) have infinite distractions.
10. Stefan Resists The Urge To Devour His Lover
This is the best scene for Stefana fans. Nothing sexier than a good meal after sex, but in this case, Elena's probably lucky that didn't happen. That's not how foreplay works, Stefan (Paul Wesley), you're not supposed to actually eat her!
9. Katherine Gets Wet (Because She Showered, Perv!)
It's no secret that Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev) has always yearned after Stefan Salvator — and she takes what she wants. Here, Katherine impersonates Elena Gilbert, who just broke up with Damon, in order to seduce Stefan.
8. Alcohol, Jealousy & Werewolf Sex
A drunken Caroline takes her jealousy out on a bottle until her frustration locks her onto Tyler's wood. Ahem. It's okay, Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) is more than capable of handling himself.
7. Katherine Mind-F*cks Stefan
While preparing for a terrible fate, Katherine has some fun by messing with Stefan's dreams. Stefan is at her complete mercy as she has full control of the situation and his mind.
6. Elena And Damon Finallyyy Do The Deed
While the scene begins with a romantic dance, it quickly evolves to something more exotic. There's something fundamentally wrong with this scene given Caroline's revelation (but that only makes it more right, for some inexplicable twisted reason).
5. Damon Is Turned On, Naturally He Brings Up Stefan
Even with Damon's old age, he hasn't learned that there are few worse mood killers than talking about family. That's not what bromance means, dude! Lucky for him, it all worked out. Kind of. Not really, I guess.
4. Hayley & Klaus Are "Hopeful"
See what I did there? This is the unlikely match that conceives Hayley Marhsall (Phoebe Tonkin) and Klaus Mikaelson's (Joseph Morgan) daughter Hope. Their daughter will be a main topic in the TVD spin-off The Originals.
3. Rebekah & Damon Have Original Sex
After getting rejected by Matt Donovan, Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt) drunkenly rebounds with Damon for a one night stand. It's an unlikely pairing everyone forgot about, but it's still hot as [email protected]
2. Caroline Confesses To Klaus
Giving a whole new meaning to "confession," Caroline is forced into revealing her dysfunctional feelings for Klaus. Why are they inappropriate? You're kind of supposed to hate Klaus even though you secretly want him. No judgment here, Car.
1. Stefan And Caroline Are Neck & Neck
In a rare moment when Caroline turns off her humanity, she has a little typical vamp fun, bringing her ol' Ripper along with her. A typical dinner date. It's quite surprising that Stefan didn't rip her clothes off. Is he getting soft on her?
By all means, take the fangs out and feel free to disagree. Many of these sexiest scenes were of a couple we probably weren't routing for... But isn't the whole point of vamp sex for it to be a little bit wrong?
