    Remember when TV couples slept in twin beds and everyone pretty much assumed that Little Ricky was the product of some immaculate conception? Remember when you could watch a show and not worry about a parent or nephew walking in on you? Remember when David Caruso's bare buns on NYPD Blue was as steamy as it got, which is to say, not steamy at all?

    Now you don't even need cable to see your favorite TV characters doing the deed, though it certainly doesn't hurt. Viola Davis is pulling out her back. Merkin sales must fly through the roof when Outlander is filming. Frank and Claire Underwood are having threesomes and Remy Danton is a cunning linguist. Thanks to Broad City, "pegging" has entered the mainstream lexicon.

    It's hard to play favorites, especially when so much of the good stuff isn't available on YouTube, but these small-screen sex scenes stand out from the rest. Was it good for you?

    Rayna & Deacon, Nashville
    They get together and break up with enough frequency (and velocity) to break your neck, but when they do come together it's a powerful physical connection.

    Damon & Elena, The Vampire Diaries
    There were a lot of couples in this show, but Damon and Elena were always the hottest...and the most star-crossed.

    Sense8
    When a group of people around the world find themselves mentally linked, "group sex" takes on a completely different meaning.
