The Witcher is a very good video game, one that stands out as a success story in an industry not known for supporting underdogs. The series didn’t have much going for it. Based on a Polish-language fantasy series of the same name and produced by a Polish-language developer who had made The Witcher its calling card, it was a dangerous investment in a franchise unfamiliar to American audiences. Which is what makes its success so singular.

The Witcher isn’t just a Polish-leaning fantasy monster game, though, it’s an adventure that continues to call into question morality in an amoral world. The player becomes Geralt of Rivia, a silver-haired Witcher who is untrusted and unthanked, maneuvering through a world brimming with creatures, poverty and political machinations. Part extra-human himself, Geralt is generally met with suspicion by those he meets. The player-as-Geralt can choose how frequently Geralt sticks his silvery neck on the line. (Hint: You aren’t often rewarded for being a Boy Scout.)

You are, however, rewarded for laying that mack down.

Which is what makes The Witcher compelling; this series earns its M rating. So to see Netflix announce its intention to produce a Witcher series sees the streaming service aim for adult fantasy a la Game of Thrones. Andrzej Sapkowski, who wrote the novels upon which the games are based, voiced his excitement.

““I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing.”

(Note: He hasn’t been so effusive about the video games, but he also doesn’t make money off of the series and seems somewhat resentful of its success.) However, the series is executive produced by Sean Daniel and Jason Brown, who launched The Expanse as the sci-fi hit of 2016. Promising.

That is, of course, if The Witcher embraces Geralt’s penchant for sex and booze. Perhaps its the Polish, but no other video game has so wholeheartedly jumped into R-rated territory like The Witcher. So will we see freaky Witcher-on-Succubi action? Let’s hope so. While we anticipate, here are five very awkward, NSFW sex scenes that made The Witcher kind of amazing.


5 Sex with a woman beast.

4 A pool scene that’ll rival any porn.

3 The world’s worst threesome.

2 Sex while flying, obviously.

1 Sex on a… unicorn?
