LGBTQ+ sex scenes: All the badass lesbian power couples on TV

Lesbian power couples: they’re here, they’re queer, and they’re ready to steal the show. Television hasn’t always been the most welcoming toward lesbian representation. As times change though, lesbian sex scenes have become a more common part of one’s viewing experience.

In April 1997, Ellen DeGeneres made headlines when she came out on her TV show Ellen. “The Puppy Episode” was a two-part special in which Ellen realized she was gay through a crush on her friend Susan (Laura Dern). Both DeGeneres & Dern faced backlash for their honest portrayal of a lesbian couple.

Years later and representation of lesbian couples has evolved beyond scrutiny and even the male gaze. Lesbian sex scenes are being created by & for the women who enjoy them, which makes them hotter than ever.

Real chemistry

Orphan Black follows the increasingly complex story of Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) as she discovers she has clones. The hit BBC series featured Maslany in many roles alongside a diverse & talented cast.

Her role as Dr. Cosima Niehaus had queer fans extra excited. She was one of the first characters at the time whose queer identity wasn’t the sole focus nor did it guarantee her death. In fact, her relationship with Dr. Delphine Cormier (Evelyne Brochu) was her saving grace.

When the doctorate scientists weren’t trying to keep Cosima alive, they were creating steamy lesbian sex scenes. Sometimes there are trust issues between them. This never stopped them from being an absolute power couple.

Country hearts

Wynonna Earp follows the gun-slinging hijinks of Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano) and friends. They fight demons in the countryside while getting into personal shenanigans and cracking Buffy-levels of witty jokes.

Wynonna’s little sister, Waverly, starts the series engaged to Champ Hardy (Dylan Koroll). She ends the series married to Nicole Haught (Katherine Barrell). The couple – known by the fandom as Wayhaught – become the most stable love story of the show.

They share steamy lesbian sex scenes, like their reunion in season four’s “Friends in Low Places”. However, like Orphan Black, Wynonna Earp makes a point to treat them as a couple rather than sexual objects. This just leaves them more room to be the cutest couple on the show.

Blended family

The Fosters follows the drama of a blended family, but it also gives a rare glimpse into a mature love story. Lena Adams (Sherri Saum) & Stef Foster (Teri Polo) are the matriarchs-in-love of a blended family made up of biological & foster children.

They have long-term-relationship lesbian sex scenes and it shows. They’re comfortable with each other and they don’t have to rush. When their kids aren’t wreaking havoc, they get to just enjoy each other’s bodies. 

Season three’s “Under Water” brings out their fun & passionate side. They go skinny dipping which is then followed by a night of heated love-making. While it’s their last sex scene of the season, it’s definitely one for the books.


Love connections

Sense8 follows the mystical connection between eight strangers all over the world. They’re brought together by shared visions and a need to belong. Yet, their relationships are tested by forces trying to use their connections for sinister deeds.

Sense8 was unapologetically diverse in its storylines & characters. Naturally, it opened with arguably one of the hottest lesbian sex scenes on TV. Amanita Caplan (Freema Agyeman) uses a strap-on to bring her girlfriend, Nomi Marks (Jamie Clayton), to great heights of pleasure.

One can say it’s all downhill from there, though. The couple goes strong throughout the series and even ends it with a gorgeous wedding. They just have to escape multiple murder attempts & mind control. No big deal!

None of the couples here have it easy. They exist on TV, so, of course, their road to happiness is paved by getting higher ratings. When they aren’t fighting for their loves, they’re giving the gays everything they’ve ever wanted: great lesbian sex scenes.
