The Time Traveler's Wife is breaking the internet and it's all thanks to one "wild" sex scene included in the new HBO series.

If you didn't already know, HBO has just adapted Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife into a new TV series starring Rose Leslie as Clare and Theo James as Henry. Just like the book, the show tells the love story of an artist called Clare who falls in love with a librarian named Theo. However, Theo has a genetic disorder where he travels through time involuntarily.

This weekend (May 22), episode 2 of the show aired and fans are losing it over the sex scene between Henry and...Henry

Just like the book, The Time Traveler's Wife involves a scene in which Henry's 16-year-old self travels back in time and gives his 16-year-old self a blow job. In the scene, 25-year-old star Brian Altemus, who plays teenage Henry, moans as he enjoys oral sex from a mystery person under his covers. His dad then walks in on him and shocked Henry screams: "Dad!"

However, the mystery person then pulls back the covers and we can see that it is none other than Henry himself who also shouts: "Dad!". The scene ends with Henry's dad looking bewildered at the two different versions of his naked son. If that weren't wild enough, Henry also tells Rose in another scene that he has "f*cked" himself before.

Naturally, people can't get over the scene. Netflix social editor Jarett Wieselman tweeted: "I had no intention of watching The Time Traveler's Wife on HBO Max but then I saw this clip where the lead character goes back in time to give himself head and now I'm like.... maaaybe they have some good ideas I should check out?"

Meanwhile, another person tweeted: "the time traveler's wife the best show on tv right now...?" Someone else added: "I would do the same thing I'm afraid." Elsewhere, someone wrote: "what the hell is going on".

The video has currently been viewed over one million times on Twitter alone.

And that's enough internet for today.
