If you're not masturbating to at least one Netflix show, you're not watching enough television. Maybe you prefer to spend your time unwinding with the best sitcoms on Netflix or British crime dramas on Netflix—both valid choices for your nights in—but why limit yourself when some of the sexiest TV shows of all time are on Netflix? Not only that, but some of the hottest shows you can watch are Netflix originals. Don't believe me? Allow me to prove it by introducing you to the 40 sexiest Netflix shows you can stream right now.
From scandalous period dramas like Bridgerton (we miss you, Duke Simon Basset) to steamy science-fiction like The Witcher (we'll miss you too, Henry Cavill), the sexiest Netflix original shows all cater to different tastes and levels of horniness.

But don't let that scare you off. Once you see the shows on this list of sexiest Netflix shows, I think you'll agree they're worth the price.
R-rated romance has never felt as regal as it does in Bridgerton, the show that follows the love stories of the Bridgerton family, as well as their sexual awakenings. Four words: Season 1, Episode 6. You're welcome.

People from all over the world discover that they are connected through a mental link which allows them to draw on each other's skills and knowledge, and even lets them experience what each other is experiencing in the moment, including sexual pleasure.
Richard Madden's jaw muscles have never worked harder than in Bodyguard, where he plays David, a man assigned to protect Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes).

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina doesn't necessarily have a lot of sex in it, but you'd never know it based on the incredibly seductive and hot vibes of the show and the performers. Dark magic is forbidden for a reason.
