In fact, you'll probably get your thirst vicariously quenched through your favorite TV series on Netflix, since sex is now more frequent and less taboo. Here's a list of risqué shows available for streaming on Netflix this August.

Once Upon a Time takes place in Storybrooke, ME, whose residents are actually fairy-tale characters robbed of their memories by an evil queen. While this fantasy show borrows elements from Disney stories, its sexier and darker content suits a more mature audience.
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (Available Aug. 4)
