Bridgerton fans shocked by masturbation scene in racy new Netflix period drama

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.
