TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) – For a long time, nudity in TV shows has been the talk of the town. Nudity is no longer confined to a certain genre of film; it may now be found everywhere, including on television. While ‘Game of Thrones’ reinvented on-screen sex with the term ‘Sexposition,’ there’s always ‘True Detective,’ which has Alexandra Daddario at her majestic best. There’s no doubting that nudity, more often than not, becomes the selling point of a movie or a TV show, even if the creators don’t want it to be that way. ‘Shameless,’ for example, has always been more famous (or, rather, infamous) for its sex scenes than for its performances or writing, even if both were excellent in their own right.

While there is a lot going on in the TV world, and there are zillions of shows to watch, this list is here to address the problem of locating the shows with a healthy dose of nudity. Though nudity or sex may serve as a mere filler in some TV shows (for example, ‘Game of Thrones,’ where the sexuality is apt and fits perfectly with the storyline or rather is a part of it, but it does not as much in ‘Californication,’ it serves as the major driver in many others.

Here’s a list of the top TV shows (including Netflix) with a lot of nudity, ordered from least naked (on this list) to most naked, along with their rising popularity and ratings. And, while we’re at it, practically all of these television shows have been rated TV-MA in the United States, a rating that is typically considered similar to the ‘R’ rating in the movie industry. I’d leave the rest up to you to read.

The Americans (2013-2018)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

The story of ‘The Americans,’ set in the Cold War era, centres around two Russian spies – Elizabeth and Philip (no, not from the British Royal Family), who pose as a married couple in DC while having a neighbor who works for the FBI. ‘The Americans,’ which initially focused on the relationships and subtleties of a marriage rather than being a spy-thriller, has raised concerns for its graphic sexual content, which is otherwise too explicit for a TV audience. Although sex scenes are mainly utilized to manipulate and blackmail people, the connotations of sexual references are more powerful than the references themselves. ‘The Americans,’ a creative premise with a lot of cross-pollination with TV shows like ‘Homeland,’ ‘The Looming Tower,’ and so on, will never fail to impress you.

Chemistry (2011)

‘Chemistry,’ a dramedy at first, depicts the affair of an LAPD officer Liz and a corporate lawyer Michael. While there isn’t much more to say about the premise, the show-stealers are the diverse sexual innuendos sprinkled throughout the 13-episode series, including but not limited to simulated sex, frontal nudity, oral sex, and so on. Simply put, there’s a very thin line between soft porn and ‘Chemistry,’ which may be why the show was canceled after its first season. What are your thoughts, please?

Naked and Afraid (2013-Present)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

‘Naked and Afraid,’ a reality television show featuring nudity as one of its main features, has naked, nude people all over (albeit the nudity isn’t explicit, and the people involved’s breasts and genitals are frequently censored). The concept is simple: survive in the woods with a person of the opposite sex while being entirely naked for 21 days. There is a PSR (Primitive Survival Rating) in place to assess survival skills, dealing with tougher situations, and so on. Although there are no sex scenes displayed during the duration of the television show, the nudity is stressed more than anything else.

Sex and The City (1998-2004)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD‘Sex and the City,’ more of an awareness campaign relating to today’s social (sex-related) issues, managed to top the charts as well as viewership when it was on the air. This show, maybe the most popular and raunchiest of the bunch, re-defined sex in American TV series and set new standards long before any of it was hip. The sitcom depicts the lives of four American women in their mid-30s to early 40s – Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda – who have managed to keep close through thick and thin, despite changes in their sex lives, physiologies, relationships, and promiscuity. With scenes of masturbation, frontal nudity, and simulated intercourse, the sexual depictions are dispersed across the entire series. I suppose that was more than enough information to get started.

Orange is the New Black (2013-)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

Wouldn’t an all-female prison be highly intriguing from the start? As exciting as that is, it also brings up the stigmas connected with jail life and what one must endure, which may be heartbreaking at times. Piper Chapman goes through practically everything inside the prison after being imprisoned for assisting and abetting her girlfriend Alex Vause in a narcotics trade. Despite having to deal with a number of ordeals, such as abuse and victimization at times, she manages to establish a few friends, including those who become quite close to her. She couldn’t, however, forget her time with Alex, and the narrative carefully follows their connection. Lesbian sex scenes are heavily shown throughout this Netflix original comedy-drama, which is presently in its sixth season.

Queer as Folk (2000-2005)

The title of a popular television show, ‘Queer as Folk,’ contains the term “folk,” which is meant to be pronounced differently. ‘Queer as Folk,’ set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, centres around five homosexual males and a lesbian couple and offers a frank look into their lives and the politics that surround them, as well as their sensitivities, sexuality, and health-related issues. While both homosexual and lesbian sexual interactions are presented extensively in ‘Queer as Folk,’ what is interesting is the absence of any straight sequences, which matches with the cause of the popular television program. While it is heavy on sex and romance, the violence and gore are kept to a minimum, which distinguishes it from the other television shows on this list.

The Girlfriend Experience (2016-2017)

‘The Girlfriend Experience,’ a somewhat current twist on ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’ and other similar television shows and movies, is the story of Christine, a law student turned part-time escort who is to provide mental and physical “comforts” to her clients under the alias Chelsea. Her clients are supposed to have a “girlfriend experience” when she is with them. Although Christine first agrees to the “arrangement,” she eventually succumbs to domineering clients who take unfair advantage of her. Objectification of women is prevalent throughout the series, as are sex scenes in which stars such as Riley Keough and Anna Friel have bared it all. However, there is nothing unique about this show that you won’t discover in other television shows with prostitution as a theme.

True Blood (2008-2014)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

No one could have predicted what would happen next in the next episodes of the horror-fantasy television series starring Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse. Vampires, it appears, are no longer feared by the world, as artificial blood has been produced, and they now live among us with ostensibly “equal” rights. ‘True Blood’ is about vampires who reside in the fictitious town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. Bon Temps also means “good times,” which explains the occasional hot scene. Sookie, a psychic, falls for vampire Bill and falls victim to the trap that comes with dating a vampire. ‘True Blood’ has it all: female and male nudity, sometimes to startlingly extreme degrees.

Californication (2007-2014)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCDTo address your query, yes, we’re referring to the many “fornications” depicted in the series. ‘Californication’ depicts the life of Hank Moody, a novelist who can’t get enough of his sex needs and is trying to conquer his sex addiction, as well as his addictions to drugs and alcohol. His relationship with his daughter is strained as he struggles with writer’s block and seeks refuge in his lover. ‘Californication,’ which features explicit scenes all over, save the frontal nudes for now, depicts sex in a borderline realistic, unsimulated style – something that also connects to the objectification of women, which has been much condemned.

The Girl’s Guide to Depravity (2012-2013)

Consider phrases like “depravity,” “diaries,” “girls,” “sex,” and so on, and you’re guaranteed to see nudity and sex like you’ve never seen before. Although numerous television shows have been accused of objectifying women and being misogynistic in character, not all of these shows are successful in terms of ratings. ‘The Girl’s Guide to Depravity’ stands out for numerous reasons, including not succumbing to insulting men, standing up for oneself, and satisfying one’s sexual urges. Rebecca Blumhagen plays Samantha, the protagonist, who, together with her companion Lizzie, establishes certain ground rules to get things going while also having plenty of “fun,” with the “fun” referring to the sex and nudity that is pervasive throughout the episode. Although there is no frontal or graphic nudity, the naked enjoyment is what steals the show.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl (2007-2011)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCDFor those For those who want to trash ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’ as third-grade soft porn, let me tell you this: this is a television show that had over a million viewers in its first season and received over 70% approval ratings. Furthermore, the sitcom has a British television viewership comparable to the cult hit ‘Dexter.’ The British drama follows Belle, a high-end London call girl who appears to be a regular lady but moonlights as an escort, while her friends and family know her as a high-end secretary working at an MNC. The show mostly focuses on how she balances her professional life with the life she claims to have against the one she actually lives, the conflicts that develop as a result, and the profusion of steamy moments that appear in practically every episode of the show over the seasons. 

Togetherness (2015-2016)

Although ‘Togetherness’ began in 2015 as a comedy-drama with an ensemble cast whose lives are intertwined and some rib-tickling humour, the surprise (or rather, shock) came with the explicit nudity that it featured. The plot revolves around two couples: Brett and Michelle, as well as Alex (Brett’s acquaintance) and Tina (Michelle’s elder sister). While Brett and Michelle deal with everyday squabbles in their marriage, the addition of another couple as housemates (not sure if this is still a thing in the wild west) takes the situation to a whole new level. Amanda Peet has bared it all in terms of nudity, as have a slew of other characters. ‘Togetherness,’ while enjoyable and sensuous, is a bundle, if you will.

Power (2014-)

‘Power’ revolves around drugs, sex, criminal gangs, illicit affairs, and the typical killings, and is centered on James St. Patrick, a drug dealer with many faces and many lives who wishes to live a pure and simple life but is stymied by the criminal nexus. Although ‘Power’ has received critical accolades for its fast-paced plot and excellent character development, it suffers from overly done scripting and predictability to some level. Regardless, with its ever-increasing popularity and vivid imagery, not to mention the occasional but extravagant sex scenes, ‘Power’ has become one of television’s most viewed and followed shows. You’re now standing.

True Detective (2014-2019)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

Alexandra Daddario bared it all in the first season of ‘True Detective,’ while Woody Harrelson seemed more than content as he gazed at her, and the sequence became without a doubt one of the most viewed and paused moments in television history. Despite the abundance of sex scenes, as well as performances by acting heavyweights such as Matthew McConaughey and Michelle Monaghan, Ms Daddario steals the show. The first season follows two former detective colleagues, Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, as they solve cases while dealing with their frequently interfering personal problems. The first season of this detective thriller show received good reviews from reviewers and viewers alike.

Tell Me You Love Me (2007)

For the uninitiated, ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ was once known as “Sexlife,” which tells us a lot more than we’d ever see in the show. To begin, four couples are at various phases of their relationships, with the only distinction being their age. May and Arthur, the eldest couple in their 60s, are also the therapists for the other three couples, who are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, respectively. The sex sequences in the show were an instant hit across the forums, and the writhing naked intertwined bodies in various attitudes could’ve been a sight for sore eyes back then. If you speak or think of a sexual position, you’ll find it in ‘Tell Me You Love Me,’ but in a sensual, acceptable way, not in a disgusting, obscene one.

Masters of Sex (2013-2016)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

Nobody has to be told how thorough this one can be. Not only is it one of the few television series with the word “sex” in the title, but it also means what it says. ‘Masters of Sex,’ a biography-based television series, is set in the 1950s and tells the story of Masters and Johnson, two human sexuality experts at Washington University in Missouri, their relationship, and everything they share, including and especially “the obvious.” The series was a critical triumph, with undeniably some of the raunchiest moments on television, including but not limited to bare bodies and unsimulated sex scenes. However, the nudity and sexuality are more or less in a medical context, which may be a turn-off for some audiences at various moments.

Black Sails (2014-2017)

Set during the “Golden Age” of pirate, ‘Black Sails’ appears to be a historical drama television series featuring fictitious events from the early 1700s. Like ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ which included a shipwreck called “Urca de Lima,” ‘Black Sails’ features a shipwreck called “Urca de Lima.” The gist of the story is formed by the table tennis being played with the prize landing from one location to another. The cast is diverse throughout several locations, as is the tale, which many popular reviews and audiences have described as intense and addictive. The series’ most controversial aspect is its depiction of homosexuality, with characters frequenting brothels and everyone knowing what follows next. Furthermore, a number of the scenes are replete with frontal nudity and topless moments, which are an essential component of the plot. Yes, the depictions are as detailed as one might conceive.

Entourage (2004-2011)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCDThe show follows Vincent Chase, a fictional uber-popular actor, and his pals’ acting careers. ‘Entourage’ also includes a slew of celebrity cameos, including Scarlett Johansson, Martin Scorsese, and LeBron James, to name a few. Though the show does not depict blatant nudity, nor does it promote nudity as a “asset,” it does include strong sexual innuendos ranging from female frontal nudity to homosexuality, among other subtle and clear references. The language and questionable substance use just add to the fervor, making it one of the most intense adult-only television shows available. 

Shameless (2011-)

‘Shameless,’ a television show (maybe the only one on this list) that boasts of something it is in many of its forms, has also received an equal amount of critical acclaim and awards for being “unique, intriguing, and entertaining” throughout. With an ensemble cast and a particularly distinctive storyline, ‘Shameless’ has a run of eight seasons and counting, mostly with an audience among the adult population, given its TV-MA rating. The plot revolves around a dysfunctional family with a drunkard father who has no idea what’s going on, while the eldest of his daughters takes care of herself and her five siblings, many of them are the result of affairs. ‘Shameless’ has to be one of the hottest television shows out there because of the graphic nudity and sex that has been featured throughout, primarily in all of the episodes. I know some of us are excitedly awaiting the arrival of the next season; nevertheless, the wait appears to be over.

Rome (2005-2007)

When it comes to a television drama set in and around the ancient Roman empire, there are a few cliched derivations we can make: sex, nudity, bloodshed, gore, wars, burly guys, gladiators, and so on. All of these, and much more, are embodied in ‘Rome.’ This fictitious television drama, based on two historical characters, went on to become one of the most widely discussed and watched British dramas at the time of its initial release, despite being cancelled after two seasons. Vorenus and Pullo are two Roman soldiers who live throughout the reigns of Julius Caesar and Augustus, two of the era’s most prominent figures. The sexual and nude references are similar to those in ‘Spartacus’ – forceful and all-encompassing.

Girls (2012-2017)

‘Girls’ is one of those television shows where nudity and sex form the center around which the story revolves, with numerous naked scenes that have been discussed over and over on the internet. So, more or less. ‘Girls’ is mostly the narrative of Hannah, a struggling writer who has been abandoned by her parents and must fight her way out of the “societal” womb, along with her pessimism and everyday problems. She is looking for new roommates as well as a new life. The sexual references are very “elaborate,” and it’s not as if the sex and nudity are there to fill space; rather, they serve a purpose. And, I assume, the goal is to arouse the audience. The show has a “plenty” to offer with actors such as Alison Williams, Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet, and Adam Driver.

Vinyl (2016)

Maybe Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple wouldn’t have shown as much skin outside of this show as they did in it. ‘Vinyl’ begins with the story of a record executive in the 1970s whose firm, “American Century,” is in disarray and he must choose between his rock music career, his personal life, and his company and its probable sale to another record company. Aside from the story, which I assume is one of the least of the interests (given the title of this list), the nudity is in its most raw form, and the nude scenes are longer than average. Nudity, more or less, rarely goes with the flow and is more sensual than ever. It would be an understatement to say that the nudity and sex are overpowering at numerous moments in the series

Westworld (2016-)

This show is set in a futuristic Wild West-themed amusement park, where the guests (or visitors) interact with the humanoid hosts and have the original Western experience, with the ability to go about anything fearlessly. It was created by Jonathan Nolan, with the involvement of names like J. J. Abrams as Executive Producer. The show heavily features both female and male nudity in the amusement park’s labs as well as within it. While the show’s nudity and sexuality are light-years apart for the most part, there is plenty of nudity nonetheless. Scenes of orgies, frontal nudity, and consenting sex are prominent throughout the series, however the nudity is intertwined with a highly viable and gritty tale. You’ll become engrossed in this intricate story, where nothing is totally true and nothing is entirely fictitious. If you haven’t begun binging it yet, you should.

Game of Thrones (2011-2019)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCDA list of “tv shows with the most nudity” would be incomplete without include “Game of Thrones.” In terms of television, Game of Thrones revolutionized the way we think about nudity. This could be one of the most extensively watched and popular spectacles in contemporary movie history, as well as one of the most talked about. Many people will find the signature hot scenes, nudity, or sexual portrayals to be a delight for the eyes, while others may find a little naughtiness in an otherwise dramatic tale to be a lot of fun. And this program is chock-full of “those” memorable moments. Featuring some of Westeros’ most gorgeous ladies, the program never fails to deliver on ferocity, raw sex, and the sensuality it always brings with it. And some of those scenes are easier to remember than others. Not to mention that several of these moments signify significant milestones in the tale and have proven to be critical turning points in the story. “Walk of Shame” or Khaleesi and Jon Snow getting cozy could be two instances.

 Spartacus (2010-2013)

TV Shows With the Most Number of Nude Scenes (2022) - ThiruttuVCDThis fictionalized series presents a raw yet refined portrayal of the Thracian slave based on the lives and times of the infamous Thracian Gladiator Spartacus. Although the show only lasted three seasons, it left an indelible impression on television with its portrayal of sensuality, drama, cruelty, and everything we’ve come to know as “Spartan” like never before. It had become a synonym for full-frontal nude sequences of both female and male characters, which are still uncommon in the TV arena today, as well as a plethora of sex scenes, blood, and gore. Many people see this television show as the champion of nudity on television, and why not? Not a single episode has ever been filmed without significant nudity. Despite the show’s many flaws, it has received numerous honors, including nominations for ‘People’s Choice Awards’ and ‘Primetime Emmy Awards.’ And, as they say, the best judge is the crowd.
