Ranked: These are officially the 11 sexiest TV shows there have been this year
If you’re into that sort of thing
This year, the TV has been top tier. But let’s not avoid the obvious here, the year of 2021 has given us some of the sexiest TV shows we’ve seen to date. From watching teens navigate the sometimes cringey situations of early sex lives in Sex Education, to the masterclass that was episode six of Bridgerton – I know you’ve watched it more than once, it’s okay to admit.
But which show was officially the sexiest of them all? That’s the ultimate question. Sex experts at Romantix have collected data on each TV series this year, using several different factors such as monthly search volume for the TV series’ sex scenes and the number of sex scenes and kissing scenes in the show. Each TV show was then ranked using a scoring index and given a score out of 100. Here is a ranking of officially the sexiest TV shows of 2021.
11. Money Heist
Money Heist is last in this list, so it’s just a lil bit sexy. The show scores five points, on the basis of it containing four sex scenes and 10 kissing scenes. Nobody is Googling the sex scenes, though.
10. Behind Her Eyes
Looking back, you might not remember this show as being that sexy. But those orbs got around watching David and Louise’s affair. There were five sex scenes and 12 kissing scenes, giving the show an overall score of 7/100.
9. Gossip Girl (2021)
This year saw the reboot of Gossip Girl and the new episodes score 10/100 for how sexy they are. This might be a bit of a surprise, considering parts of the new series have been called “soft porn”. The reboot contains eight sex scenes and 16 kissing scenes.
8. The Last Kingdom
In eighth is Netflix historical drama, The Last Kingdom. This show scored 32/100, with 16 sex scenes and nine kissing scenes.
7. Dark Desire
Dark Desire was backed a bit of a combination of 365 Days and YOU, so it’s no surprise it’s pretty sexy. The show scores 35/100, with 14 sex scenes and 18 kissing scenes. It also gets some extra points for mentioning fetishes.
HBO comedy series Insecure is in sixth – with an overall score of 43/100. This year, there have been 450 Google searches for “Insecure sex scene” (hopefully all meaning the show, and not just awkward searching), and the show contains 14 sex scenes and 18 kissing scenes.
5. Normal People
Yes, Normal People may have been released last year, but there have still been 1,700 Google searches in 2021 for “Normal People sex scene” – so this show still ranks pretty highly. With 19 sex scenes and 29 kissing scenes, plus Connell’s damn sexy chain, this is show none of us are forgetting in a hurry and it scored 60/100.
Up next is our favourite toxic duo, the Quinn-Goldbergs. Season three of YOU was notably sexier than previous seasons, with the now married couple rediscovering their sex lives as well as exploring a polyamorous relationship – albeit very briefly. There were 18 sex scenes all together, and 1,300 searches for “YOU sex scene”. YOU scored 67/100.
Teen drama Elite just made it into the top three. It scored 74/100, with 18 sex scenes and 25 kissing scenes. The show also contains mentions of BDSM and fetishes and masturbation. This year, there have been 1,000 Google searches for “Elite sex scene”.
We all know that Bridgerton is sexy. The Duke and Daphne, once she discovered sex, didn’t stop. The show got a score of 75, with 21 sex scenes and 15 kissing scenes. Bridgerton also got some extra points for scenes of masturbation. On top of this, over 4,500 people have Google searched the show’s sex scenes in 2021.
1. Sex Education
There’s not really much of a surprise here, this show is all about sex. Sex Education is officially number one in the sexiest shows of 2021, with an overall score of 95/100. 4,700 people have searched for the show’s sex scenes on Google, of which there were 18 and a further 19 kissing scenes. It also gets lots of extra points for the inclusion of discussions surrounding fetishes, BDSM and group sex and masturbation.
