Boob Tube: Top 10 Sexiest L Word Moments

So The L Word’s sixth and final season is about to come to a close and all throughout the lesbian nation there seems to be a mingled sense of relief and despair at our impending loss. As I have been one of many folks picking apart the hot mess that is the show these days, I thought it would be fun to focus this week on the one thing that Mama C and co. have unfailingly gotten right: sheer sexiness.

Let’s face it, even when the storylines have been incoherent, inconsistent and downright difficult to swallow, ‘the sexy’ has long been this show’s saving grace. In the spirit of celebrating our shared legacy of hotness, available to us forevermore through the wonder of DVD and Interwebs technology, I give you The Top 10 Sexiest L Word Moments.

10. Marina and Jenny, Bathroom Seduction, Season One
Like a freefall down the proverbial rabbit hole, it was this scene that first sucked so many of us in. Marina’s passive-aggressive handsy-ness and that gobsmacked, deer-in-the-headlights expression of Jenny’s will go down in history as ushering in a new golden age of dyke drama.

9. Tina and Bette, Cheatin’ Ho Sex, Season Five
Good God are these two boring, but when they started sneaking around behind everyone’s back last year, exchanging all those longing glances and finally giving in to their rekindled passion? Yeah. Hotness ensued. Enhancing the sexy factor was the fact that this was clearly a new Tina, sure of herself and her desires and ready to take what she wanted.

8. Bette and Nadia, Hot For Teacher, Season Four
You remember the scene I’m talking about. The one in the car? Bette turns to her incorrigibly flirtatious TA, exasperated, and says her name. And the next thing you know they’re all over each other. All that was missing was a schoolgirl skirt and a riding crop. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

7. Alice and Dana, Their First Time, Season Two
Who could forget Alice and Dana’s first romp amidst the gift bags for Dana’s impending bridal shower, and set to the lovely disco strains of CeCe Peniston? It was the perfect marriage of screwball comedy and hotness, the latter deftly taking over when the scene shifted to the two of

This blog reminds me how pissed I was to have to watch so many sex scenes between Jenny and Tim the first season. I still hold a grudge.

See, everything about that last sentence is exactly you and why I would've expected that scene to make your list. Smile

"7. bette and jodie bedroom sex scene with bette in a beater tank (season 4)" Really? I think JB needs to stop bringing her friends onto the show because she has absolutely zero chemistry with them. The Jodie/Bette sex was just awkward and uncomfortable.

Julia, thanks so much for

Julia, thanks so much for reminding us why we still watch--just the fact that this season has to date spawned one top-tenner (Dylena reunion) keeps us eternally optimistic i guess.

I agree with Rusty that the Bette/Nadia car romp wouldn't make my top 10, but not for the same reason. The FANTASY of the student/teacher hookup is a perpetual turn-on, but in this case what was on-screen didn't even come close to my lamest daydream.

In its place I'd submit the Dylena bathroom scene where Helena says something like "I'll show you how fucking insane it is" and proceeds to stick Dylan's hand down her pants.

Minnie,
I'm with you on the Cherie/Shane strap-on pool scene, though like Julia Cherie Jaffe kinda gave me the STD creeps--but Shane in that scene? S-I-Z-Z-L-I-N-G (and i'm not even a big admirer).

p.s. off-topic: we're about to get a FOOT of snow tonight here in Beantown--cranky doesn't even begin to cover it...

Just the thought of her with Gabby DeVaux "I swear Alice, if you get with her I'm going to kill you."

In no particular order:

The pool scene, definitely.

How about the barber's chair scene?

I like the post sex of Shane taking pictures of Molly.

Not so much the sex, but I love Tasha's line, "I'm taking this shit to the bedroom."

I also thought Pappi on Alice in the limo was pretty good for the embarrassing memories aspect of sex. I mean, who among us does not have some ridiculous moment in our sex life to look back on?

As a former college instructor, that one had a huge "ick" factor for me.

1. Helo can't tell a Boomer from an Athena? Dude, you suck. All the Chief had to do was look in her eyes.
2. I loved every scene with Starbuck and her Dad.
3. Only three fracking episodes of BSG left. Crap.

You know, I almost posted an "honorary mention" list at the bottom which would have included the vampire hookup. I did get a kick (so to speak) out of Alice being chained to the ceiling while she was being "embraced."

I found Helena's

I found Helena's pregnant-Tina obsession a bit disturbing back then (I believe I used to refer to that as Helena's Rumplestiltskin phase), so that one didn't make my list. And Cherie Jaffe makes my skin crawl, so any scene with her is an automatic no-go in my book!

Howdy julia. I agree with

Howdy julia. I agree with two of your top ten. bette and tina stir-fry sex is definitely up there, but up until this season girl they were NOT boring. them's fightin' words! Wink

I agree with the dylena scene this year too. very realistic and very intense.

however, none of the other couples had much chemistry at all imo. shane's trists were so over-the-top they didn't do a thing for me. JB and LuH have the best chemistry of anyone on the show. here's my top ten:

1. tibette pilot sex
2. tibette stir-fry sex
3. tibette OMFG sex season 2
4. tibette honey honey sex
5. dylena season 6
6. tibette 608 just kiss me sex (i saw the spoiler)
7. bette and jodie bedroom sex scene with bette in a beater tank (season 4)
8. dylena season 3 (or was it 4?)
9. shane and molly bedroom scene season 5
10. alice and dana season 2

and you're right, im going to miss this hot mess too, all but season 6 anyway.
10.

Hmmm, my top scene is the booty dance with Carmen and Shane (your no. 2).

Julia, do you remember the Helena & Tina pool scene from Season 2, Episode Six when Tina was pregnant?

Oh, how about the Shane and Cherie Jeffie strap on poolside scene from Season 3, Episode Five?

Wet.

Julia, I am surprised that Alice's vampire scene didn't make your list. You. Vampires. I don't know why I might think you'd like that. Smile

Thanks for letting me know that "Reaper" is starting up again. I find that show a lot of fun.
