The 10 Best Movie and TV Sex Scenes of 2016 — So Far (NSFW)

So far, 2016 has been a pretty good year for, ahem, bad things. The addition of Netflix as a viable source for original television means that sex isn't relegated to the premium movie channels and theaters. Now that we're nearing the (alleged) end of summer, it's time for a look back at some of the steamiest scenes from the calendar year.

Note: This post contains spoilers.

Sexy Soaking with Superman
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was pretty bad. It was actually so bad that it made the abomination of Suicide Squad seem passable by comparison. But what was arguably the best moment of BVS? That's easy. Lois Lane is taking a bath when Superman gets home from his day job (using the best disguise in history as Clark Kent), and Supes decides to join her. Any super-sex seems like it'd be pretty destructive (just ask Jessica Jones), but this one made those of us concerned about adult things like water damage cringe a little extra.

50 Cent's Power Move
Is 50 Cent actually upset that his wiener showed up in an episode of Power? Probably not. Did his possibly fake outrage/Instagram rant successfully get the show in headlines around the internet? Absolutely. If you ever wondered what 50 was packing, just check out the video (or watch the show on Starz, as he really wants you to do).

Three's Company in Prison
You kind of have to love Judy King in Orange is the New Black. Even if she's a little bit racist, that accent and level of sass is undeniable. Given all of the sex in OITNB, it's not really a surprise to see King get involved with someone. But then she takes it to another level by getting high and ending up with Yoga Jones and Luschek, and she doesn't regret a single moment of it.

Tarzan and Jane Go Primal
From her role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad to that ridiculous and creepy Vanity Fair interview, Margot Robbie has gone from a supporting player in The Wolf of Wall Street to become the breakout star of 2016. Of course, not every movie Robbie did was a success. The Legend of Tarzan didn't exactly change the cinema world. There's not a whole lot of nudity (it's still a family movie, after all), but the taping of the scenes was apparently so wild that Robbie allegedly beat up Alexander Skarsgård while filming them. 

GOT's LGBT Hero
Game of Thrones has cooled off a bit with the gratuitous nudity and sex scenes, but season six brought about a new star (technically two, but one is far too young to be having sex on-screen) in Yara Greyjoy. Aside from taking her shot at Khaleesi, Yara seems pretty content to get it on with some whores while her castrated brother mopes for the umpteenth time. Given Loras Tyrell's unceremonious death (spoiler alert, if you're months behind), Yara is already far more of the hero the LGBT community of the Seven Kingdoms deserves than the whiny Tyrell sibling ever was.

Horsing Around
If there's one show that can get away with a graphic horse insemination scene for laughs, it's Silicon Valley. For a show that portrays little to no human sex, Silicon Valley manages to pull off more NSFW sex-based gags than just about anything else on television. If you paid that much money for specific horse semen, you'd be watching this intently, too.

The Blind and the Beautiful
You know that whole theory that if you lose one sense, the others get stronger to compensate? Maybe that's what makes the sex between Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios so intense. The scene from the second season of Daredevil had a little bit of a weird vibe to it, but it also proved that Netflix was willing to pull out all the stops on a superhero sex scene. Was it as good as Jessica Jones and Luke Cage breaking the bed? Maybe not, but that one was so 2015.

The Other F Word
You can't have a season of Shameless (or a calendar year) without some amazingly poor sexual decisions from Fiona Gallagher. This time, she went back to her reoccurring ex, Jimmy (also known as Goku, for those who are fans of terrible live-action Dragonball movies), in the midst of her seemingly solid (if rushed) marriage to Gus. After going through an awkward semi-divorce and separation, there was still a glimmer of hope that the two could get back together. Unfortunately, Gus pretty much crushed those dreams by writing one of the most scathing breakup songs of all time (and then playing it for a full bar, including Fiona).

Fireproof
Okay, so technically there's no sex in this one, just a naked, strong Khaleesi. Considering how long it'd been since we'd seen the Mother of Dragons naked and what an empowering scene it was, this was one of the most memorable moments of this year's Game of Thrones saga. Moral of the story? You don't mess with a lady who has a name and title roughly 30 words long, even if all of her clothes get burnt off in the process.

Indignant Love
If you don't know about Indignation, you're missing out on one of the best and most interesting takes on sex and romance of the year. Without spoiling too much, the film is a morally tangled college love story of the 1950s, and there's a automotive fellatio scene you won't soon forget.
