Here are the 5 best TV lesbian couples from off the telly box (according to me), if you disagree then fantastic, write your own list.
Just a little note before we get to my favourite lady lovers, while I do love these lesbian couples because they’ve made me feel all nice and horny inside, they have also contributed to my unrealistic expectations of what a relationship should be like.
Aka all passion, can’t take your hands off each other even after 7,000 years together and just generally having the spark and butterflies every second of every day. So, from me and my exes I just want to say “fuck you” unrealistic but extremely hot lesbian couples off the telly, fuck you very much.
1) Bette and Tina – The L Word
Tina and Bette or “Tibette” as they’re known to true L Word fans were the best lesbian couple on TV. It was all very passionate and wonderful, sure, sometimes they cheated on each other and broke up, but that just added to the drama and the sexiness of it.
They were the first lesbian couple that I ever saw on TV – when I first watched the scene where they’re in the kitchen rekindling their romance after having a baby scan, I was horrified. 15-year-old closeted Jenna was disgusted at watching two old women getting it on.
Since coming out and growing up, I’ve rewatched that scene many MANY times, with a much more “positive reaction”.
2) Callie and Arizona – Grey’s Anatomy
I am very much in love with Arizona Robbins (the blonde one) and Callie is not bad either, though she’s not my type, so that makes this couple pretty damn good to watch.
Again, there’s some cheating in this relationship but it’s really bloody hot and also adds a layer of drama and longing which really gets me invested. This relationship is one of the best on TV because it’s funny, dramatic and also Arizona is the longest-running lesbian character on TV.
There’s a shit load of Grey’s Anatomy seasons, so if you just want to tune in for this great lesbian couple then start at Series 5 episode 11, because that’s when Arizona appears. To me, she is the most beautiful actress after Kate Winslet and Reese With-a-spoon.
3) Bridget and Frankie – Wentworth
This couple is from an Australian prison drama that I’ve never actually seen. HOWEVER, I have watched over 200 hours of YouTube videos about their relationship. Who doesn’t love a compilation video featuring some sad Adele song in the background?
Frankie is the hot prisoner who has a “Shane from The L Word” vibe, and Bridget is her straight-looking but very gay therapist. If you’re like me and you LOVE lesbian tension and lingering looks across a prison corridor, then I’d highly recommend you watch some of the compilation videos on YouTube.
I’m sure the series is good as well, but I ain’t got time for dat…
4) Me and Kate Winslet – title pending
I haven’t finished writing the script for this particular lesbian TV drama yet, but when I do I will of course be casting Kate as my main love interest.
I will naturally be the lead character suffering from some unrequited love, but then it will all work out well because Kate will realise she is also a big gay and we’ll get together and have all the sex.
Watch this space…
5) Piper and Alex – Orange is the New Black
What is it with prisons being full of lesbians? Seems to be a hot bed of lady lovers…
Piper and Alex are just one of the many lesbian couples from Orange is the New Black and they’re really fucking hot. I mean sex in the shower hot. Alex is the cool, confident dark-haired one with sexy teacher glasses and Piper is the stupidly attractive blonde one who is actually gay in real life.
ANYWAY, there’s a LOT of episodes of OITNB so if you’re interested in learning more about this lesbian couple then YouTube compilation videos are the way to go!
