Sex scenes in the world of anime are not solely confined to Hentai. Even shows that may initially seem innocuous can suddenly surprise you with the most graphic scenes. Anime shows, like all the other mediums, try to use sex scenes to either lure a young male audience or to add depth to its characters. That being said, a lot of anime shows have been added to Netflix’s ever-growing catalog and with this growing list, we also get to see some really weird shows that feature all kinds of “never-seen-before” sex scenes. From “gambling orgasms” to “demonic seductions”, Netflix has it all. So, here’s the list of really good anime sex scenes on Netflix that are available to stream right now:
10. The Seven Deadly Sins (2014 – 2021)
‘The Seven Deadly Sins’ is an action-adventure anime that is based on Nakaba Suzuki’s Japanese fantasy manga series. Thes show is produced by A-1 Pictures and centers upon the Kingdom of Britannia, which is protected by the Holy Knights. But when a few of them turn their backs against the kingdom, they have sworn to protect Britannia’s remaining army defeats them swiftly. But many years down the line, those same forces take over the country. Now, Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, must search for the legendary knights who revolted against Britannia to take back the kingdom. The anime is one of the most popular shows in the last few decades, and it has no dearth of fanservice moments, a few of which are quite sexual in nature.
9. Baki (2018-)
‘Baki‘, being a combat tournament anime, is extremely violent and graphic for all right reasons. Somewhere between all of its gory fight scenes and profanity, there is a sex scene that features Baki and Kozue. While the sex scene is something that was expected all along, it’s the whole setup of this scene that turns out to be really weird and confusing. The dark background music player with this completely changes its mood and that’s when Baki starts narrating the whole thing in grave detail. The narration could’ve made the scene better if his voice was not so goofy all the time and to make things worse, even the imagery is not all that great. Netflix’s recreation of ‘Baki’ is a fairly decent anime but the sex scenes certainly need improvement.
8. Castlevania (2017 – 2021)
Inspired by an action-adventure video game developed by Konami, ‘Castlevania’ is a gothic horror show. Created by Warren Ellis, the series follows a vampire hunter and his friends who embark on a quest to face Dracula’s army of beasts who are hell-bent on destroying a city that burnt the love of his life at stake. The dark-fantasy show undoubtedly has an interesting premise, and it is rightfully regarded as one of the best animated shows of the previous few decades. While it includes several implied sex between Sipha and Trevor, the most intense lovemaking actually happens between Hector and Lenore, which fans of ecchi anime will definitely enjoy.
7. Code Geass (2006-)
This list would be incomplete without the infamous “table-Kun” scene of ‘Code Geass‘. It features a character named Nina Einstein who is shy and quiet on the outside, but deep inside, she has quite a maniacal mind. She even designs a weapon of mass destruction all by herself and later tries to countermeasure it. In episode 12 of season one, there is a very controversial scene where she stimulates herself using a table. The disturbing nature of the scene has sparked a lot of hatred for this part of the anime and even the character. The infamy has also made her an internet troll where people often insultingly refer to her as “Table-chan” and the table as “Table-Kun”.
6. Kengan Ashura (2019-)
The sex scene in ‘Kengan Ashura‘ is so brief that you probably did not even notice it. It happens during the initial moments of season one and despite its short runtime, it actually holds a lot of significance in context of the plot. Yamashita Kazou, a frail 56-year-old man, is one of the two main protagonists of the series. He has a very dull personality and his insecurities often reflect upon his docile body language. Tokita Ohma is the other main character of the anime who is the perfect embodiment of an alpha male. When Yamashita spots him for the first time during a street fight, he gets so excited by his alpha male vibes that he later goes and has sex with a prostitute. 10 years before the events of the anime, his wife had walked out on him and since then, he has been more or less of a loser who gets pushed around by people of power. But this scene shows how he starts a transformation towards resurrecting his lost manhood after her meets Ohma.
5. Sword Art Online (2012-)
If you’re an experienced anime viewer, you’ve already seen some of the most beautiful love stories that involve the cutest characters. From Edward and Winry in ‘Fullmetal Alchemist‘ to Misaki and Usui in ‘Maid Sama‘; all of these love stories have deeply moved us. But one of the most heartwarming stories comes from ‘Sword Art Online‘, which revolves around Kirito and Asuna.
There is one scene in the anime that portrays an “implied sex scene” between the two characters. Asuna invites Kirito for a sleepover and after a while, she turns off the lights and magically takes off all of her clothes. She then asks Kirito to undress while he just sits there in absolute shock. He then says that he just wanted to “stay in the room” and for obvious reasons, this really pisses off Asuna. The scene then abruptly comes to an end. Even in the manga, there are no direct implications of sex between the two characters, but they are shown in the same bed at the end of the same sleepover. It’s almost like the mangaka expects you to fill in your imagination with this one. Whatever the case may be, Asuna either has the wrong idea of what a sleepover truly is or Kirito is just a fool.

4. Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995-)
Misato Kisaragi is one of the main characters of ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion‘. Almost throughout the series, she is portrayed as the kind of character who does really let out her inner-self. And that’s the reason why her sudden emotional distraught that sets in later, comes as a big shock. Shinji, the main protagonist, ends up losing his entire physical being after being absorbed into the cockpit of Unit-01. By this time, Misato is emotionally invested in Shinji and her concern for his well-being completely makes her lose all hope. To deal with this, she has sex with her old college lover, Kaji. In the series, and also in ‘The End Of Evangelion‘, it has been implied that when the two of them were lovers, they once ended up spending an entire week doing nothing but having sex.
Getting back to the sex scene, it depicts how her coldness towards him was actually just an act and how she still emotionally relies on him in many ways. In a brief moment, as a viewer, you can also notice that Kaji drops a birth control pill on her dresser. During this moment, one might just see this as another intense anime sex scene, but everything from the pill to Misato’s sudden behavioral change has deeper significance in the story. This brief scene is enough to show how well written the entire series is.

3. Kakegurui (2017)
‘Kakegurui‘ is a prime example of “fanservice done right“. While watching anything other than meaningless Ecchi, most viewers don’t even care about fan service. But ‘Kakegurui’ literally adds value to its fanservice by using it in such a way that it holds a lot of significance in the overarching plot. It revolves around a bunch of female characters who are obsessed with gambling and even explicitly compare it with sex. The show depicts an intense gambling atmosphere where the stakes are high and it almost recreates the highly glamorized atmosphere of a Las Vegas casino.
In an intense atmosphere like this, sex appeal becomes necessary. Not just one scene, but there are several moments in this anime where the female protagonists get turned on by the thrill of something as simple as a coin toss. This not only makes the anime more entertaining but also makes its characters more believable. It’s easy to create a character who is simply driven by the idea of earning wealth, but it takes a lot of efforts to create a character like Yumeko, who is willing to risk everything just to gain the adrenaline rush of a mere game. ‘Kakegurui‘ has certainly made a remarkable achievement by using sex to its advantage.

Inspired by Sakyo Komatsu’s Japanese novel of the same name, ‘Japan Sinks: 2020’ is a science fiction drama anime. The Pyeon-Gang Ho and Masaaki Yuasa directorial follows the Mutou family after a massive earthquake Japanese archipelago. As desperate people run for cover, the entire nation falls to its knees in a matter of few days, and people are forced to resort to desperate measures for survival. While the movie has an exciting premise that is interesting in itself, very few people know that there is an intense graphic sex scene at the end of episode 5.

1. Devilman Crybaby (2018)
‘Devilman Crybaby‘, directed by Masaaki Yuasa, contains the most extreme content that has hit Netflix lately and packs a disturbing collision of nudity, violence and of course, demonic insanity. From being a slow-burning anime, ‘Devilman Crybaby’ suddenly becomes a graphic gorefest at the end of episode one. The two main characters, Akira and Ryou, go to a Sabbath which seems like a harmless teenage rave. But soon, the whole place is dusked upon by hungry demons who wildly attack everyone. Their teeth and tentacles literally lash out of every “orifice”, making the whole place a brutal mess. There is another scene where a character named MiKo, a shy schoolgirl, touches herself when she thinks about the alpha male image of Akira. This scene does not have any nudity but the weird noises she makes while doing it makes this one quite memorable. And not to mention, she gets possessed by a demon soon after this.
