Baby, it’s cold outside. Luckily, we’ve got this couch, a blanket, a big screen, and no intention of going out until absolutely necessary. The worst thing about TV these days is that there’s just too many awesome shows to watch…and sexy shows! And with more and more becoming available on streaming services like Crave, there are also fewer commercial breaks, meaning fewer reasons to ever get out from under that blanket.
Here are some of our favourite TV shows to watch right now, guaranteed to heat you (and whoever might be in the room with you) way up, rated on a scale of first base (a snuggle under the blankets, perhaps?), second base, third base, and home run (we don’t need to tell you what that is).
David Duchovny finally stopped Californicating and came back to the X-Files. Ok, so this show isn’t exactly “steamy” on the surface, but there’s something undeniably sexy about that Mulder and Scully vibe. Come on, would you just hook up already?!
X-Files, which last aired in 2002, is back with a vengeance, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that our two favourite sci-fi FBI agents finally break through the friend zone. We just can’t take the tension any longer.
Game of Thrones
You’ve got a few months to catch up, if you haven’t been watching (or reading) the epic fantasy saga, Game of Thrones. Season six premieres on April 24, and it’s sure to have all the dragon porn you can handle. But seriously, Khaleesi is easily the sexiest queen ever to rule the HBO screens—and that Jaime Lannister isn’t too shabby, either, even if he’s only got one hand to thrust a sword.
Based on the series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, ‘Outlander’ follows a British army nurse as she travels back in time, and lands in the arms of a burly Scottish warrior. It’s like a Harlequin novel, only better, with better developed characters, a stronger storyline and just as much sex. Season two premieres in April, so you’ve got time to binge on season one.
Masters of Sex
“Sex, it’s a biological function.” Masters of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, is set in the ’60s, so you know it’s going to be kinky. The show follows the lives of the real-life pioneers of the sexual revolution and, as you might expect, stuff gets weird. A three-way marriage, sex-focused scientists, and an ahead-of-her-time mother’s emotions make this one of steamiest things to watch this year.
Money, passion, power, and more money. Here’s a show for the saphiosexual in all of us. Is there anything sexier than intelligence? Well, maybe an intelligent person who has a wicked ear for music. We’re in the intermission of season two at the moment, but it’ll be firing back up on March 30, so you have enough time to get yourself up to speed.
Two words: Adam Driver. From the hilarious and often raunchy mind of Lena Dunham, ‘Girls’ has been pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptable on modern television since it exploded onto the scene in 2012. Last year we saw the first ‘analingus’ scene—seriously, if you haven’t seen this you need to check it out—and we’re sure that season five, which premieres on Feb 21, will give us plenty more to gossip about around the water cooler.
How To Get Away With Murder
HTGAWM’s first two seasons were wickedly sexy. With the totally crush-worthy professor played by Viola Davis—we’ve all been attracted to a teacher at some point, right?—getting even more tangled up with her students in season three (which premiered February 1), we can’t wait to see what sort of suspenseful and suggestive antics play out in the classroom this semester.
Come see us when the weather warms up. But be sure to knock first.
