HISTORICAL dramas love to include a sex scene or two – just look at Game of Thrones.
But the HBO series isn’t the only one that’s featured some steamy romps, with Vikings also offering up some naked flesh.
The History Channel series ran for six seasons from 2013 to 2020 and featured a number of raunchy moments along the way.
Here’s a look at some of the steamiest.
Lagertha’s ‘bull ride’
Lagertha and Ragnar certainly had a feisty relationship during the show, fighting as much as they fornicated.
Lagertha certainly wasn’t backwards in coming forwards about what she wanted and at one point she declares to him: “I want to ride you like a wild bull”. Saucy minx.
Three’s a crowd
Devout monk Athelstan almost gave into temptation when Ragnar and Lagertha decided to ask him to join them.
After being forced to listen to them romping, the half naked pair invite him to take part, and while tempted, he holds his nerve.
This is despite Lagertha asking seductively: “What if God looked the other way?”
During a drunken victory celebration, Queen Kwenthrith gives Lagertha a longing look.
It prompts her to ask: “Why do you stare at me?” to which the Queen replies: “Because you interest me… and… you attract me.”
The women then clasp hands and share a steamy kiss.
Having a field day
Aslaug and Harbard had numerous hot sex scenes during the show’s run.
But one that stood out actually featured them fully clothed as they got it on in a field in the rain.
However, things get a bit freaky as when Aslaug mounts Harbard, he intermittently appears as Floki and vice versa.
Ragnar is drawn to his former slave Yidu in season four, and one scene sees him bathe her in the tub before performing a sex act on her while he remains fully clothed.
The pair then share a sort of ‘Spider-Man’s kiss’.
Hot tub party
Another water-based romp saw King Ecbert have a steamy soak with Lagertha, Athelstan and Judith in season three.
Things ramp up a notch between the King and Lagertha, leaving the other two exchanging furtive glances. Hot tub indeed.
