Another commented, “The sex scenes in First Kill are actually so inappropriate.”

“I like First Kill so far, but did they have to do 16?” questioned one.

Several critics went online to voice their belief that the sex scene was a typical example of a show being written and produced with a “male gaze”, saying they thought the show had been “over-sexed”, but d Others weren’t so sure.

Urging people who criticize First Kill for its “sexual content” to “go watch Peppa Pig”, one person said: “Women have sex with women, and if you say a certain television is for the male gaze only because there are scenes with this type of content, it’s actually offensive.

Concordantly, another said: “Anyone saying the (First Kill) scenes are for the male gaze is just plain weird. Lesbians can and do have sex. There’s nothing wrong with that and there’s nothing wrong with lesbians enjoying seeing that.

Meanwhile, chastising critics who claimed the sex scene was “rushed” and unrealistic, one fan of the show tweeted, “Who ever wrote the make-up scenes in First Kill knows what it’s like to being gay at 15.”

Regardless of the position people took on the show, however, few seemed as excited as a viewer to watch the scene of women loving women.

They said, “A show whose main love story is WLW? And they never cut lesbian sex scenes short? And there’s no emphasis on straight sex scenes? Count on me!”
