BRIDGERTON fans have been left shocked by masturbation scenes in the racy new Netflix period drama.
If viewers were expecting a Downton Abbey-esque show, they were in for a rude awakening as in one episode of the series, the lead female character is schooled in the art of self-pleasure by the man she is pretending to date.

Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) is having a faux-romance with Duke Simon Basset (Rege-Jean Page) as part of her plan to find a suitor during the social season.
However, in 1813 women weren't encouraged to explore their own bodies for pleasure, leading to a toe-curling scene where Simon explains the art of masturbation to a stunned Daphne.
Viewers immediately took to Twitter to comment on the scene, with one writing: "Is there anything more awkward and taboo than a God-like suitor explaining masturbation to a young naive debutante? Wow. Impactful, uncomfortable, unique scene."
Another added: "Gotta admit I didn’t expect the masturbation chat in #bridgerton."
A third tweeted: "sitting here watching #Bridgerton with my parents as the duke tells daphne all about masturbation so fun & familial!!!"
While others were taken aback, and at times mortified by the scene, others were left hot under the collar by the Duke's description of self pleasure.
One thirsty viewer tweeted: "Not Simon giving her a lesson on masturbation… This scene. Chile. He can teach me a lesson ANY DAMN DAY."
Another agreed, writing: "I don’t think I’ve ever heard masturbation described in such a classy way. That was hot!"
Meanwhile a third added: "Yes, I have rewatched the scene where Simon explains masturbation to Daphne in the park several times."
Things got more awkward for anyone watching the show with their parents as a later episode sees Daphne put her tutorial into action.
The Duke later asked her what she thought about while doing it and she replied: "I thought about you when I touched myself — I always think about you.”
Bridgerton is available on Netflix now.
