Sexual Agency, Atomic Blonde
Charlize Theron’s Lorraine may get around a little over the course of Atomic Blonde, but what is perhaps her steamiest encounter happens with French agent Delphine (Sophia Boutella). The two put top secret work aside to get down and dirty, and it is something else.

A Family Affair, Game of Thrones
While it’s totally icky when you realize they’re related, it’s hard not to be thrilled about the fact that after seven long seasons, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) FINALLY bone. This moment of total bliss for the two of them (and the view of Harington’s derriere) is awards-worthy.

Mind Sex, Legion
David may not be able to touch the woman he desires, but once he finds out that he can have sex with an untouchable partner, things get seriously sexy. The mental sex he has with Syd proves to be just as fulfilling (and hot) as the real thing.

Intellectual Intercourse, Mindhunter
There’s a lot of dirty, disturbing sex that takes place over the course of Mindhunter‘s first season, but the first time we see Holden (Jonathan Groff) and Debbie (Hannah Gross) have sweaty, steamy sex, it’s something else. Who needs to hunt minds when there’s sex to be having?

Carnal Desire, Raw
Raw, a bonkers, brilliant horror film that sees a girl come into her sexuality while also developing a taste for human flesh, perfectly combines sex and cannibalism in one fell swoop. This grisly sex scene sees Justine and Adrien get it on and blood drawn after she bites her own arm to quiet her most carnal impulses.

A Holy Trinity, The Little Hours
Certainly played more for laughs than titillation, a threesome between David Franco, Aubrey Plaza, and Jemima Kirke in The Little Hours is equal parts sexy and totally silly. We can’t imagine the Catholic church is happy about this one.

Sex On Fire, American Gods
This eagerly anticipated, totally hot gay sex scene does not disappoint. These two men (Mousa Kraish and Omid Abtahi) begin to explore their wildest desires simply by holding hands in the elevator, and by the time they get to the bedroom, their multi-position, super-steamy sexathon is almost awe-inspiring.

Letting Off Steam, Big Little Lies
While Renata (Laura Dern) might appear to be one of the more straightlaced women on Big Little Lies, the totally bonkers sex she has with her husband (Jeffrey Nording) at work proves that she’s just a woman with needs. They’re loud, violent, and crazy, and much more sane because of it by the end.

Jealous Fantasies, Dear White People
Imagining your girlfriend getting it on in an incredibly kinky manner with someone else is probably not most people’s idea of a good time, but the resulting scene that sees Sam (Logan Browning) and her pal Reggie (Marque Richardson) have some out-of-this world intercourse is way too sexy not to include here
[Where to Stream Dear White People]
After much buildup and temptation, boundary-breaking therapist Jean (Naomi Watts) finally gives into her greatest desires with twenty-something Syndey (Sophie Cookson) – and it is something else. What Jean’s husband doesn’t know won’t hurt him, I guess.

Nick & Offred, The Handmaid’s Tale
Perhaps one of the most satisfying sex scenes television in recent memory, this ridiculously passionate scene sees Offred (Elisabeth Moss) and Nick (Max Minghella) finally get it on and break through their sexual repression. Steamy, sensual, and totally hot, this is one that warrants more than a few viewings.

About Damn Time Jane the Virgin
It’s been a long time since Jane was actually a virgin, and almost longer since she’s actually had sex in the wake of her husband Michael’s death. After wanting to put herself out there again, she desperately waits for the ditzy-yet-incredibly-sexy Fabian to make a move, and when he finally does, there are some serious fireworks.

Suspected Murder Sex!, My Cousin Rachel
What’s hotter than sex? Murder, obviously. This lush period drama hones in on forbidden love and tosses a suspected murder into the mix, and some incredibly erotic encounters between Rachel (Rachel Weisz) and Philip (Sam Claflin), most memorably among the bluebells.

The Last Leg, The Beguiled
There’s a lot that’s sexy about Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled, but one of the most bewildering (and best) moments in the film comes when Edwina (Kirsten Dunst) and recent amputee John McBurney (Colin Farrell) have passionate sex on the floor after he freaks out on all the women in the house for taking his leg off. Steamy stuff.
Shower Sex, Fifty Shades Darker
This entire movie is essentially softcore porn, but there’s perhaps no steamier scene (literally) than when Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) get it on in the shower after Christian nearly dies in a helicopter accident. Realistic? No. Hot? Very.
We Are So Naked, The Incredible Jessica James
Recent singles Jessica (Jessica Williams) and Boone (Chris O’Dowd) initially resist going to bed together after a few dates, but when they finally give in, the result is endearingly entertaining. What could have easily become an entirely-too-steamy, unrealistic sex scene is instead played in a beautifully clumsy, intimate manner, making it one of the best rom-com sex scenes in years.
