The White Lotus *** *** scene was shocking because it was so gloriously unapologetic | Barbara Ellen

We’ve come a long way since camp and innuendo were the only ways to portray such relationshipsMaybe you’ll have noticed – there’s just been an old-school “watercooler moment”: people talking about that scene in the second series of Sky Atlantic’s The White Lotus, when Jennifer Coolidge’s socialite, Tanya, chances upon Quentin (Tom Hollander) having *** with his supposed “nephew”, Jack (Leo Woodall). Nor is it “tastefully suggestive”. It’s stark *****, full-on, explicit.

This isn’t our old friend, moral panic. Anybody who’s ever watched The White Lotus, created by Mike White, knows it’s that kind of wild show. In the first series, Murray Bartlett’s increasingly crazed hotel manager ends up with his face buried between an employee’s bare buttocks. Nor do viewers seem offended by the scene between Hollander and Woodall. It’s more: “Wow – did that just happen?”
