Ryan Murphy's inventive and disturbing anthology show, American Horror Story, has tapped into the collective American nightmare. Re-inventing itself every season and offering some of the most disturbing moments in all of television history, the show has become a must watch for shock-hounds and a staple of watercooler conversations.
Never just about horror, American Horror Story has always been very much about sex. While getting it on and the consequences of it have long been a huge part of the horror genre, Murphy has pushed things to new and disturbing extremes. Touching on a wide variety of taboos from bestiality to necrophilia, getting too comfortable during any kind of intimate moment will likely come back to burn you.
As a result, as hot as any of the hottest moments are -- they are often twisted or disturbing. Anything that can fit into conventional attraction will be usurped later on by a horrific twist or even a turnaround within that very scene. Murphy's horror, more often than not, comes from eliciting arousal in moments or scenes that you'd really rather you didn't. His horror draws you in with beautiful women and incredible set pieces only to reveal a hidden part of yourself that maybe you didn't want to face. He makes the audience complicit in what's happening onscreen and it's one of the reasons people keep coming back for more.
It should go without saying that some of these entries may be considered spoilers. While none of them really reveal huge plot twists, and will likely not ruin your experience - there is nonetheless a very spoiler sensitive society so consider yourself warned.

American Horror Story season 1 was weird but it wasn't so weird that we didn't feel too uncomfortable about being turned on. We gotta say, while Moira has made her presence really known on this list it is with reason. Of all the moments though that really captured our attention, it was when she brought in a spirit friend, The Black Dahlia, when she was really upping her seduction game. As little as we were privileged to see, it was enough to get us hot and bothered for many seasons to come. Honestly, we gotta give it to Ben Harmon - the fact he was able to resist Moira makes him a much stronger man than we are.
