In the wake of the streaming sensation where anything goes as far as online content, television is really pushing the envelope lately for what it can get away with. It’s no doubt that love scenes have been getting raunchier each season, as this season was no exception. From The Vampire Diaries to newbies like Quantico our favorite characters have had some hot and heavy scenes this year. Let’s take a look back at 8 of the sexiest love scenes on TV in the 2015-16 season.
1. Aria and Ezra, Pretty Little Liars
Season 6b of PLL picked up 5 years into the future. At that time, Aria was living in Boston and dating a coworker at her publishing agency. Ezra had just returned from traveling the world with his girlfriend, who was kidnapped and murdered by a group of radicals. He was in a bad place, and Aria went to him to try and get him writing again. Old feelings stirred up and these two went at it hard in the season finale.
2. Stefan and Caroline, The Vampire Diaries
When the fallout of Damon’s actions gains the unwanted attention of Mary Louise and Nora, Stefan and Caroline are forced to spend the night distracting the girls at Whitmore College’s Heaven & Hell ball. After the two manage to siphon the repulsion spell off of Caroline by threatening two of the girls, Caroline kills the girl who put the spell on her and the two get so turned on they just can’t resist each other. They make out all the way into a bedroom and Caroline makes sure to let Stefan know that she’s not some insecure, jealous girlfriend. Once that’s out of the way, they’re free to plow into each other by the fireplace.
3. Maggie and Andrew, Grey’s Anatomy
Andrew apologizes for crossing boundaries and pissing Meredith and Maggie off. When he tries to get into the issues between them, Maggie shuts him up for fear of someone hearing them and pulls him into an office. She firmly lets him know that nothing between them can happen again.When they start talking about it, they can’t resist each other and repeat “last night” right there in the office.
4. Eddie and Sarah, The Path
5. Charlie and Tatiana, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
As raunchy and perverted as It’s Always Sunny has always been, it’s had surprisingly few sex scenes. When it does, it’s generally because it’s funny to see what a sociopath Dennis is in the way he manipulates people. In a surprising move this season, we see Charlie, the least sexual character of all, getting laid by a prostitute up at the mountain when the gang satires ’80s movies. The scene kind of comes completely out of nowhere and goes much further than necessary, everything we love about Sunny. Cheers to Charlie for his first “sax” scene.
6. Alex and Ryan, Quantico
In this flashback, we see things get seriously “steamy” with Alex and Ryan in the shower, the very same shower that Alex would “save some water” by sharing with Natalie. This scene between Alex and Ryan went viral, and if you watch, it you can see why. We’ve never seen things get so erotic for Alex before.
7. Hakeem and Laura, Empire
Even though Camille has intentions of pursuing Hakeem, he’s got his own agenda. What’s his intention? Why, to de-flower his on-again, off-again girlfriend Laura, of course. And he does so in spades.
8. Laurel and Frank, How to Get Away With Murder
Most scenes between Laurel and Frank are pretty hot, but this one took things up a level. It was dangerous and wrong, yet felt so right. It wasn’t even just the physical aspect that made this scene, but when Frank warns that they would be heard having sex by everyone upstairs, Laurel responds with, “only if you make me scream.” That in itself deemed this one of the hottest love scenes of the season. Laurel and Frank make you question whether you’re watching ABC or HBO.
