The second season of out writer/director Mike White's HBO comedy "The White Lotus" has provided Gay Twitter with enough fodder and meme-worthy content so far but it's been pretty light on queer moments. That is until the show's fifth episode, which aired on Sunday night.

The episode, called "That's Amore," ended with Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) wandering the halls of the stunning mansion she's visiting, owned by Quentin (Tom Hollander), a wealthy gay English transplant now living in Palermo whom she met while staying at the White Lotus resort in the previous episode. As she walks down the corridors, she hears men moaning and eventually enters a room only to discover Quentin in the middle of having sex with his so-called nephew, the hunky Jack (Leo Woodall), who happens to be hooking up with Tanya's assistant Portia (Haley Lu Richardson).

The moment is also one of the most explicit gay sex scenes ever depicted on HBO — or TV...and Gay Twitter didn't hold back reacting to the scene and the episode. Find the best responses below.
