UNSURE what to watch while you’re having sex? Here are five shows that are easy to dip in and out of, so to speak, during lovemaking.
In an ideal world you’d make time and really get into one of those lavish HBO shows everyone says is an all-time classic. The Wire is too bleak and The Sopranos too engaging, so stick to Deadwood. Its slow pace will give you plenty of time to enjoy sexual intercourse, and since it’s HBO, there are tits in it if you’re a bit bored with your partner’s.
A surprisingly horny show about well-dressed men in hats. Many would argue the stylised violence and macho lifestyle is inappropriate for the bedroom. But Cillian Murphy’s in it and frankly you’d prefer your male partner tried to recreate strait-laced 1920s sex to the weird shit in the last Pornhub video he watched.
The show itself is an unwatchable collection of ‘edgy’ police show clichés and witless plotlines showing precious little respect for its audience. However Idris Elba has a sexy voice, not unlike smooth jazz, which makes it the perfect soundtrack to a night of lovemaking, unless he’s talking about a mutilated corpse in the mortuary.
Watch emotionally vulnerable men with stylish tattoos and beefy arms yell at each other in a cramped kitchen. The air is thick with tension; a fight could break out any minute or they could hug and cry. Masculine yet sensitive, they’re ideal for women to fantasise about during sex with your underwhelming partner. Sadly him whipping up a Chilean sea bass with tomato confit for a midnight snack will have to remain a fantasy.
The Blue Planet
Experience the wonders of this little blue ball we call Earth and the diversity and mystery of life as you celebrate a deep physical connection with your partner. Also if it’s an episode about penguin mating season you can imagine David Attenborough is watching and talking about you. Kinky.
