Bridgerton fans react to the show’s longest sex scene yet and is it getting hot in here?

"This was truly the BEST sex scene of the Bridgerton universe."

Viewers of Netflix’s Bridgerton are in a tizzy after experiencing the series’ longest (and hottest?) sex scene yet following the premiere of Season Three, Part Two.

Fans of the hit show — and the books they’re based on — have been holding out for the second half of the latest season after the first instalment ended on a heart-racing cliffhanger.

The conclusion of Season Three’s fourth episode saw Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) asking whether Penelope Featheringrton (Nicola Coughlan) was going to marry him after a rather scandalous romp in a carriage (IYKYK).

While that moment was spicy as is, episode five had fans in a tizzy when Polin (Colin and Penelope) consummated their relationship during a six (!!) minute scene set to an orchestral arrangement of Ariana Grande‘s POV.

What have Bridgerton fans said about the show’s longest-ever sex scene?

Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), Bridgerton viewers reacted to what some are dubbing “one of the hottest sex scenes [they’ve] ever seen”.

Fans flocked to the comment section to congratulate the actors, with one celebrating their “great fake humping”.
