With new shows like Looking and Transparent premiering in 2014, the TV world is expanding beyond just showing heterosexual sex — and that is something to celebrate. So what were the best sex scenes on TV in 2014? The sex scene may have been declared dead by Esquire this year, but they were talking in movies. And thanks to premium channels like HBO and Showtime, TV-ish sources like Amazon and Netflix, and new shows centering around affairs (ahem, The Affair), TV viewers can see some of the most smoldering sex around.

But just because premium channels can show nudity doesn't mean they are the only ones showing what goes down in the bedroom (or office, or bar, or hotel room... you get my drift). CW censored two of its sex scenes in Reign , but there are still plenty of opportunities to see people doing the deed on TV. Yet, while varying sexual orientations are being highlighted, most sex on TV is still predominately had by white people (something that desperately needs to change — it's freakin' 2014, people).

So as our culture slowly, but steadily, starts to embrace diversity, let's hope there is more of it in 2015. In the meantime, let's check out the people who embraced in the best TV sex scenes in 2014.
