It’s A Sin viewers shocked by drama’s explicit sex montage with raunchy threesome and oral sex

so much sex

IT'S A Sin viewers were left shocked tonight by the new drama's explicit sex montage with a raunchy threesome and oral sex.

The new Channel 4 drama by Russell T Davies follows four young friends in the 1980s who watch their worlds unravel over the first decade of the HIV pandemic.

The first episode introduced the main characters and how they came to end up in London, with Ritchie Tozer (Olly Alexander) afraid to tell his family he's gay.

Ritchie makes friends with drama student Jill, who introduces him to his first lover.

After a false start, Ritchie grows in confidence which plays out in across a raunchy montage where he is seen hooking up with multiple men.

Stripping naked, Ritchie is seen enjoying oral sex with one man, while another has sex with him while he is pressed up against the wall.

As the sex marathon continues, Ritchie is then seen in a naked threesome with two men he meets in a bar, before rolling around in bed in the nude with another hunk.

Viewers were taken aback by the explicit scenes, with one writing on Twitter: "So them sex scenes came in thick and fast."

Another tweeted: "Russell T Davies directs the best sex scenes. I was getting ‘Queer as Folk’ vibes there."

A third added: "That was one hell of a montage - an evolution of confidence and finding ones true self through sex and liberation. Wonderful!"

Others joked the sex scenes were the most action they had had themselves in months thanks to lockdown.

One tweeted: "I love how Olly Alexander had more sex in a 2 minute segment than I have had in 10 years of being out the closet."

Another wrote: "Is that what sex is? It’s been so long, I thought you just led there and ate a pot noodle..."

A third joked: "The sex scene with Ritchie is how we are all going to be when lockdown is lifted properly and the pubs/bars/clubs open again."

It's A Sin continues on Friday, January 29 at 9pm on Channel 4 with all episodes available on All4.
