It doesn’t matter how many drug cartel documentaries or shows you have previously seen; even knowing all about the world’s history with narcotics will not make a difference, because if you have not seen ‘Narcos’, then you’re not just missing out on a “drug show” but also one of the best TV series ever made in recent times. ‘Narcos’ is not entirely historically accurate because for the purpose of drama, many names and places have been changed. But the incredible soundtrack, setting, flawless writing, breathtaking cinematography and extraordinary acting elevate the show to a whole different level. The impact ‘Narcos‘ has on television audience cannot be overstated. It has been one of the most loved and appreciated shows of this decade.
The main focus of the show is on Pablo Escobar, which is definitely not an unknown name in the real world unless you have been living under a rock all this while. The Colombian drug lord is hunt down by two DEA agents who in the end realize that if they cut a snake’s head, another one will emerge right around the corner to take its place. That’s exactly what happens here and when after Escobar is taken down, the drug trafficking business of the 80s continues to thrive. It’s just a never-ending cycle that can be slowed down but never broken.
It is quite obvious that a show about a Columbian drug cartel has to be violent and graphic. The violent part blends well but it’s the sex scenes that seem forced at times and don’t even add any overall value to the plot. The gut-wrenching murders that take place throughout the show are so brutal they just overshadow the sex scenes and in the end, make them look like a cheap way of alluring a bigger audience. But we are not complaining because the show already has some messed up stuff going on, so a few sex scenes here and there just make things a little better. In fact, it even adds some realism to the overall story. So, here’s the list of top steamy scenes from ‘Narcos’.
8. Sex in the Dark (SE01 EP02)
Wagner Moura and Adria Arjona make out in a dark room and the raw sexual tension in the scene begins to escalate. All we can see as of now are silhouettes of their half nude frontals. But that’s all the nudity you get to see in this scene. Soon, the whole thing starts to go down and the two have sex standing up. That’s when she asks him if he has “standing sex” with his wife as well. This pisses him off and he looks at her in the eyes with rage, announcing, “Don’t insult Tata!”. To make up for this, she asks him to take her from behind now and that’s how they solve their little misunderstanding. This is how he simply ends up accepting the apology Adria’s character asks for. There isn’t too much nudity in the scene and all you can see is their faces while they have sex. In fact, Adria even has a dress on during the scene but it’s clear that all of this is nothing but a random hook-up to fulfill their desires.
7. Bathtub (SE01 EP09)
Cristina Umana sits in a bubbly bathtub in this scene with her man but having sex is the least of her concerns right now. Her guy offers her money and a house she has had her eyes on since ages, just to lure her into having sex but she seems too distracted by the fact that Pablo somehow is not willing to come into peace with Cali. In a steamy bubble bath where her man is trying to seduce her by kissing her all over her neck, all she has to think about is Pablo’s war tax on them. What started off as a potential sex scene soon turns into a cocaine-snorting business meeting in a bathtub.
