From Vanity Fair:

When Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander book series came to TV last year it was heavily praised for its innovative depiction of on-screen sex. Yes, the relationship between Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) is another romance between two very attractive people, but there was an earned intimacy and somewhat unusual emphasis on the female gaze that put it a cut above the gratuitous-feeling sex you might see on other shows. But still, with its time-traveling, swashbuckling adventure, and recurring tropes of the bodice-ripping genre (Gabaldon’s books are sometimes shelved in the Romance section), Outlander could still be dismissed as sexual fantasy.
