Olivia and Fitz's 9 Most Scandalous Sex Scenes

Since Scandal's inception, the main focus of the hit drama has been Olivia Pope and President Fitzgerald Grant. Though watching her team of gladiators tackle insane political cases with ease is fantastic, the will-they-or-won't-they pull of "Olitz" takes the cake. Whether you're rooting for Olivia and Fitz or prefer her with Jake, there's no denying that the president and his mistress have a way of lighting up the screen.

Throughout the show's many seasons, we've seen plenty of scandalous moments, including them getting frisky in the Oval Office, sharing heated kisses with the Secret Service a few steps away, and even epic "one-minute" stare-downs that are arguably even more intimate than their sex scenes. Keep reading for nine of the steamiest moments in Scandal history.

"Stop. Walking."

This scene is a punch in the gut, as Olivia confronts Fitz about government surveillance and he confronts her about her ex, but then something changes. Anger turns to passion so intense that the Secret Service agents turn their backs to give them a moment of privacy when Olivia and Fitz kiss behind a tree. Like most moments, it ends with her "ending" things, realizing their relationship is exhausting . . . but they always come back to each other.

"If You Want Me, Earn Me!"

While this part isn't the steamy portion of the episode, Olivia screaming, "If you want me, earn me!" prompts Fitz to do just that after they watch the clock tick down together. It's this scene in season two that proves he loves Olivia more than his wife — and being president.

"Mr. President"

Olivia and Fitz take things to a whole new dirty level — on the Oval Office desk. While they have tried to fight their feelings for one another time and time again, it never works, leading to moments like this.
