TV SSL Reviews! - A Master List of TV Shows Rated on Depictions/Discussions of Female Orgasm and/or Female Masturbation

This is the TV section of the SSL Reviews. If you'd like to check out the Movie SSL Reviews, go HERE.

To give a little background, an SSL Review is a critique specifically about a discussion or depiction of female orgasm or masturbation in media. I am particularly interested in the realism (for instance: was the physical thing happening during the orgasm something that actually could cause orgasm in a woman?). I also often discuss how the depiction/discussion reflects our cultural understanding and also what it adds to the larger conversation about female orgasm and female sexuality. In the end, though, I say whatever I want to say because this is my blog, but I do try to stick close to those guidelines.

Clearly not every TV show or movie will be eligible for SSL Review, but I try to do these reviews whenever depictions/discussions occur in things I'm watching, and I'm pretty good about it with movies, but sometimes with TV, I'm just too lazy to take notes. I'm working to get better at that and I'm even doing some re-watching to capture some good SSL Reviewable moments.

I have categorized the review links by TV series from A to Z and added their vulva ratings [a 0 to 5 vulva (!)(!)(!)(!)(!) scale] when available. Please note that I have not always given TV show reviews vulva ratings, so I have estimated on some earlier ones. Also, there is no standardized scale for the vulva ratings, as you will clearly see. As always, please tip me off to anything you'd like to see SSL Reviewed!

Below you will see notations that will help clarify some things.

(F) - Season fully SSL Reviewed (all scenes that could be SSL Reviewed were)
(FF) - Series fully SSL Reviewed (all scenes that could be SSL Reviewed were)
(E) - Very early writing from the blog
(*) - Estimated vulva rating because it was before I was vulva rating TV consistently
