The US drama is inspired by the novel 44 Chapters About 4 Men by BB Easton and premiered on the streaming service on June 25.
Starring Sarah Shahi, Mike Vogel and Adam Demos, Sex/Life follows the life of a stay-at-home wife and mum called Billie, who is played by actress Sarah.
In the series, Billie reunites with an ex-boyfriend from her youth and is taken back to the excitement of her younger days.
The story develops as Billie becomes obsessed with her old memories – of lustful times with her former boyfriend ‘bad-boy Brad’, played by Adam Demos – when she would go to wild parties and have loads of casual sex.
Consequently, Billie starts writing about her experiences on her laptop.
Her current relationship with husband Cooper, played by Mike Vogel, takes an interesting turn when he discovers her writing. Cooper goes on to use the intimate texts as an instruction manual to spice up his and Billie’s sex life.
The drama consists of eight episodes, but one scene in particular has got everyone talking on social media.
In episode three, Cooper is seen taking a shower at the gym and eyeing up his competition – Brad.
As Brad turns around, actor Adam gives the camera an eyeful in what is a very explicit full-frontal shower scene.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “I have one thing to say GO WATCH SEX LIFE!!!! Oh sweet lord just for the shower scene #TeamBrad.”
A second posted: “Wow they really showed EVERYTHING in that shower scene on episode 3 in Sex/Life. I’m shook.”
A third added: “Episode 3 shower scene with Brad. Billie I get it! #sexlife,” while a fourth tweeted: “Sex/Life – Netflix – episode three about twenty minutes in. If you know, you know.”
Australian actor Adam recently spoke out about the racy scene and confirmed that he didn’t request a body double.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 35 -year-old star said: “I was okay with it because you read the script and know what you’re getting yourself into from the start, so I don’t think you would sign on to a show after reading the scripts and then say no last minute.
“That doesn’t mean you can’t have discussions about comfort level, which they allowed us to have – and with the intimacy coordinator, so it felt a lot safer,” Adam continued.
He added that the racy sex scenes “are there for a reason, because they drive the story and the characters”.
Sex/Life is available to watch on Netflix now.
