6) Peggy and Pete sneak a quickie in the office (Season 1, Episode 8)
Peggy and Pete sometimes feel like the least erotic pseudo-couple on the show, but when they find themselves alone together at the Sterling-Cooper offices, their encounter — glimpsed partially through the frosted walls of Pete's office — was surprisingly hot, given how awkward most of their past together had been.
7) Don and Rachel kiss on the roof (Season 1, Episode 3)
Don Draper has had a lot of mistresses — at least five, but who knows how many affairs happened off-screen? And while we knew Don was a philanderer from the end of the pilot episode, this was the first time we really saw Don's seduction techniques from the start. Between the marvelous location and the howling of the corporate watch dogs, it's easy to get swept up in the illicit romance of it all as Don and Rachel finally kiss.
8) Joan and Roger meet in a hotel room (Season 1, Episode 6)
Joan and Roger may have been the couple viewers rooted for the most — the sexy secretary and the also sexy ad-firm partner, not married but with crackling chemistry. Even after their daytime go-around in the rented room, they couldn't keep their hands off one another, and who could blame them? They've both moved on since then, but most of us would love to see them get back together.
9) Don and Bobbie hide from the rain (Season 2, Episode 3)
Don and Bobbie share one of the most notorious scenes in Mad Men history, a business negotiation in which Don goes to extreme lengths to get the, uh, upper hand. But this scene is more erotic, as two strong personalities fight for dominance in the shared space of a beautiful early-'60s car. Don may have been trying to resist temptation at this point, but can you blame him for giving in here?
10) Sal almost makes it with a bellhop (Season 3, Episode 1)
This was perhaps the scene you've been anticipating for the entire series. Joan is a fox; Don is an Adonis. But both of them got busy on regular occasions. It was poor, closeted Sal who was most contained, so the moment that facade drops was extra-hot. Cooped up in a hotel room without air conditioning, Sal finds himself tipping the bellhop in a very nontraditional way. Sure, the moment is interrupted, but be honest: you wondered for a second if you would see an actual penis on cable TV, didn't you?
