The Steamy Geralt And Yennefer Scene That Has Fans All Saying The Same Thing

Netflix isn't inherently known for being raunchy, but "The Witcher" is. Promiscuity (and other, less pleasant variations) are frequent in the books. In the games, well, the unicorn scenes of "The Witcher" mean more than you think. The Netflix series continued this trend by featuring multiple sex scenes and gaining a severe label from the Parent's Guide on IMDb. In terms of percentages, it's not exactly "Game of Thrones" levels of excessive, but it's close enough to justify the comparison.  

Now, while most of these scenes are vaguely meant to establish characters and build a world, their truer purpose is almost always — or so it seems — to draw a specific demographic into the viewership fold. Now and then, however, a scene gets to stir a different sort of reaction than what one might anticipate. In this way, a sequence in the first season caused a surprisingly unified response from fans. 

Geralt and Yennefer's first encounter is hilarious

As depicted in the YouTube clip on the channel "Trailers & Clips," the fifth episode of the first season of "The Witcher," entitled "The Last Wish," features the first intimate encounter between Geralt and Yennefer. Here's the scene — the two are struggling against a Djinn (another name for a genie) who is intent on killing Yennefer, and Geralt ultimately saves her life even though she's, well, YenneferIn the aftermath, the two sit together, disheveled and exhausted. Geralt's silver hair is all over the place. Then, suddenly, they get very, very busy. 

Jaskier (Joey Batey), who's afraid that his only friend is dead, desperately seeks him out, only to discover that not only is Geralt alive and well, but that he's exuberantly fraternizing with the woman who threatened his life (Jaskier's life, not Geralt's, not in this case, anyway). It stops just as abruptly as it starts, and Geralt reaps the reward of his final wish for a good night's sleep.

The sequence isn't intended to be arousing; instead, the whole bit is for laughs. Fortunately, the humor seems to be what fans have taken away from it. The top comment on the YouTube video came from Freya Diavollo, who said, "This is lowkey one of the most hilarious moments of the show." This sentiment was echoed by most of the comment section. However, a few complained about not getting to see more skin, as if "The Witcher" hadn't already featured an entire, explicit orgy in the first episode.

There's just no pleasing some people.
