20 Greatest Girl/Girl TV Sex Scenes of All Time Ranked

We're right in the heart of summer, and as the temperature rises outside, we've decided it's time to celebrate when it also rises on our TV screens. We've already voted for our favorite TV couple of the summer, but now we've just gotta remember the best of times between all of our favorite couples on the small screen. From The L Word throwbacks to Orange is the New Black's latest season, here are our favorite sex scenes on TV, ranked as we see fit. And if you don't see yours or feel your personal rankings are reflected, feel free to shout out in the comments! And just to clear things up, we're counting either full-on sex or what's as closely implied as sex as possible. ABC Family can only give us so much after all, but what it does give us is glorious. Happy scrolling!

You can vote for your faves on the poll on the last page. And if you don't like our picks, you can write in your own. 


20. Kenya sees beyond Stahma's exterior (Defiance season 1, episode 7)

Stahma was the very model of a composed, kept wife until she confronted local brothel madam Kenya about her husband's frequent visits. In Kenya, Stahma found a sympathetic ear...and other body parts. 


19. Rachel and April make the most of a bathroom break (House of Lies season 1, episode 1)

Not only did this slick Showtime series bring Kristen Bell back to our screens, its very first episode featured a show-stealing bathroom tryst between guest stars Anna Camp and Megalyn Echikunwoke

18. Emily and Naomi get away from it all (Skins (UK) season 3, episode 6)

From its inception Skins was a controversial take on teen sexuality, yet it wasn't until the third season that a lesbian couple was featured. Fortunately, it was worth the wait for this scene where Emily and Naomi take a trip to the local forest and embrace the exploration the series was all about.



17. Ilana tries to get it on with her doppelganger (Broad City season 2, episode 9)

Ilana often discusses her same-sex romances on Broad City, but we finally got to see her in action when she and her doppelganger (in the form of Alia Shawkat) tried to make it work. In the end, having sex with almost herself was just too strange for Ilana, but these memories are worth the discovery. 


16. Tara and Naomi prove cage fighting is just foreplay (True Blood season 4, episode 1)

While Sookie was literally off with the fairies, her BFF Tara left her old life behind and became a cage fighter who is dating the competition. Because sure, why not replace short shorts and an apron with lingerie and wrestling a beautiful woman? Actually, this choice makes absolute sense to us.


15. Callie and Arizona break the rules (Grey's Anatomy, season 11, episode 5)

These two are so very on-again-off-again, but when they're on, they're on. Esepcially here, when a vow of sexless silence clearly didn't go as planned.

14. Alex and Piper have hate sex (Orange is the New Black season 3, episode 2)

We could pretty much make an entire list of just Alex/Piper sex scenes alone, but this most recent one might stay with us forever. We imagined it might be hard for those girls to get over their issues when the 3rd season rolled around, but they figured it out. Oh, how they figured it out.
