Sex On TV and Hands Free Masturbation



If you’ve been using your PULSE SOLO ESSENTIAL for hands-free masturbation at the computer, taking advantage of the fact that you can use both of your hands to browse your chosen… ahem… material, then know that you’re not the only one. We get lots of feedback from users on PULSE SOLO ESSENTIAL and one of the common themes is that it helps with the holy grail: hands-free orgasms.

But internet porn isn’t the only thing you can watch one-handed.

Love Island and sex after the watershed

This week, Love Island producers got into a bit of trouble for airing a sex scene shortly after the watershed. In case you’ve never heard of the watershed, it’s 9pm – the time set by Ofcom in the UK after which it’s OK for TV stations to air sexy stuff. Back in the Olden Days a sexy scene just after the watershed would cause quite a bit of uproar. If the kids weren’t in bed yet and they accidentally caught a glimpse of someone’s bottom, there’d be outraged letters pouring in to complain.

Nowadays, though, more of us are watching TV on catch-up services like Netflix and iPlayer, and so the idea of a watershed may seem less relevant. You can fire up your favourite sexy box set at lunchtime, and no one’s going to censor out the dirty bits for you.

What Makes A Sexy TV Show?

There are a few key criteria for a good sexy TV show – firstly the sex has to be reasonably frequent. For this you mostly want the earlier episodes of a good box set. Why? Well, because producers tend to cram them with more surprise filth than the episodes that come later on – the theory being that you can hook an audience with a good bit of nudity, then they’ll keep watching later on because they’ve learned to… umm… love the characters. Don’t believe us? The Daily Beast ran the numbers on Game of Thrones at the end of a fairly unsexy season 3.

The problem with Game of Thrones is that it breaks one of the key rules of sexy TV shows: surprise gore. If you’re watching with your PULSE SOLO ESSENTIAL on, enjoying a bit of sex position, it’s going to kill the mood pretty quickly if Ramsay Bolton shows up to do some torturing partway through your hands-free masturbation.

Sexiest TV shows for hands-free masturbation

The Tudors

If you appreciate some historical raunch, then little-known box set The Tudors might be right up your street. It follows the box set rule of being sexier in the first couple of seasons, when King Henry the VIII is ‘romancing’ Ann Boleyn. Or perhaps it’s the other way round. Either way, though, the build-up of sexual tension between them translates into some pretty incredible almost-sex scenes – perfect if you like using your PULSE SOLO ESSENTIAL for a bit of edging. And it has the added benefit that you feel like you’re learning some history too.

Orange Is The New Black

What we like about Orange Is The New Black is the sheer range of characters – from Nicky the horny drug addict to Poussey the romantic scholar, Season One has plenty of sex scenes to hook you in. The only down side is that you’ll probably end up caring less about the raunch and more about the residents of the prison.

Eurotrash

Anyone who grew up in the late 90s knows that Eurotrash is the Holy Grail of sexy TV. Not only does it have more variety than a global fetish convention, it also has genuine entertainment value – from the cheeky voiceover to the stylised dubbing, in which you’ll often hear a German porn star chatting away to you in a warm Brummie accent.

Do you pay attention to the watershed?

One of the key benefits of watching sexy TV on Netflix or catch-up is that you can watch it at any time of day. And as more of us take advantage of tech that allows us to watch what we want when we want, the watershed becomes less important than the show descriptions and ratings that appear alongside it.

Do you still pay attention to the watershed when you’re watching TV? Or are you more used to checking out the descriptions to find out if something might contain an X-rated scene or two? We think the way we watch TV now is much better for your average viewer – online info, interactive TV guides, and content that’s held in categories with tags means it’s much easier to get a good idea for what a programme will contain. Twenty years ago the only info people had to go on was the Radio Times, and the occasional announcement before the programme that it might contain ‘scenes of a sexual nature.’ Now you can get a heads-up if you’re not in the mood for some surprise sex scenes (or you want to put the kids to bed first), and you also know exactly where to look if you fancy a hot night in with your hands-free sex toy.
