It’s blunt but it’s true: Something about lesbians just intrigues the male mind immensely. The idea of two women being together just appeals so well and so many guys get into it. It’s thus pushed how so many TV shows have fandoms dedicated to putting their female characters together. Rizzoli & Isles, Once Upon a Time, Glee and more besides, fans love to play the “make them a couple” game. However, there does seem to be a push in media now to actually give fans what they want with some very hot characters made into real couples. It’s gone from just small TV shows to even big movies like the acclaimed Carol hooking up Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. True, there has been a troubling aspect of characters to meet harsh ends (see the doomed lovers Nora and Mary Louise on The Vampire Diaries) but the fact they at least try is a step further than has been done in the past.
Some pairings are obvious and long-lasting while others don’t last as long. However, there are still plenty of amazingly hot ladies who have hooked up in movies, TV, books, even comics and in many ways, they’re positive relationships to inspire. The list includes cops, crooks, warriors, teens, spies and more yet they all share a great bond and some stunning sexiness. Here are the 15 hottest fictional lesbian couples and we can only hope that grows more as time goes on.
SPOILER warning for some series and films.
15 Emily and Paige - Pretty Little Liars
14 Lucy and Amy - DEBS
13 Piper and Alex - Orange Is The New Black
12 Kate Kane and Maggie Sawyer - DC Comics
11 Spencer and Ashley - South of Nowhere
10 Callie and Arizona - Grey’s Anatomy
9 Nikki and Nora: The N&N Files
Long before Rizzoli & Isles came along, producer Nancylee Myatt conceived the pilot of a TV show in 2004 focusing on a pair of cops in New Orleans. Nikki (Liz Vassey) and Nora (Christina Cox) were shown in the usual partner banter, talking the job and such, seeming close friends. However, midway through, the show revealed they were actually lesbian lovers and out about it. It was a daring idea, probably too much for 2004 network TV and so it was passed over. However, the pilot leaked online to gather a massive fan following with viewers loving the two brunettes together and their nice heat.
8 Brittany and Santana - Glee
7 Nan and Kitty - Tipping the Velvet
6 Lexa and Clarke - The 100
5 Willow and Tara - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
4 Shane and Carmen - The L Word
3 Bo and Lauren - Lost Girl
2 Corky and Violet - Bound
1 Xena and Gabrielle - Xena: Warrior Princess
The obvious choice. The show could tease it a lot in the early going and even try to give each a male love but it was clear from the start that the chemistry between Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor was unbeatable. The warrior atoning for her dark past and the goofy bard seemed an odd match yet balanced each other out with some smarts and good banter. Gabrielle would get a makeover to become more of a warrior and sexier in her own way while Xena remained a master fighter on her own.
Their love for each other was clear in various antics, from bathing together, brawling and putting their lives on the line for each other and would basically just come right out and say it several times. The actresses were up front on how it was for real and although not as openly shown as much as fans wanted, the producers acknowledge it was canon. It all worked thanks to Lawless and O’Connor as the rumored reboot will have a hard time replicating that success for a pairing that paved the way for so many lesbian showings on television and ignited an entire fanbase.
