Sexy Traits! We’ve all got ’em! Right? Right? ….Right?!

Yes. The answer is yes. If you’re thinking maybe no, then you need to look a little harder, cuz damn… they’re there! And we found them! And we’re talking about them on this, our 26th(-ish) episode.

As you may have seen in our social media posts, this episode was supposed to go out last week, but during the editing process I discovered that technical difficulties had crapped all over the last 15 minutes. So, we had to postpone and get together again to record a patch of sorts. The result works, I think, more-or-less… if not quite so charming as the original material.

…And yes, I’m telling myself that our tipsy observations are nothing if not charming… it’s how I sidestep embarrassment during the multiple listens that edits require. Not into the sound of your own voice? Try repeat listens of the same words in the span of a few hours. You will never have a harder time trying not to facepalm at the sound of your own doofy guffaws.

But enough about the traits we side-eye… this episode is all about the traits that butterscotch our puddings (wait, what?! …shhh… shhh… just go with it.) And it’s just sweaters and hobbits and Chris Evans for as far as the eye can see…

No, you’ll like it. Join us.

Also, I have no idea how I managed to forget to use Dylan O’Brien as my example for perfect forearms (How did I do that?! Wine.) I’ve remedied the omission in the Pinterest album for this episode, which you can find it here.

p.s. It was Emma Thompson. Emma THOMPSON. My fucking brain. And… wine.

Ah, Game of Thrones. Yes, this time around we’re taking on television, and where better to start than Westeros and all the sexy moral ambiguity the series can muster. But it’s not all so sexy, is it?

We’re going to start off easy, however… get the ball rolling with a little tongue waggling over our own choice cuts and personal favorites. There’s a spicy array of sexiness on display in this series that should not go unappreciated!

Ultimately though, just as the recent spat of rapey-ness will attest to, sex in the ‘game of thrones’ has much less to do with sex directly and much more to do with the exerting, controlling and ripping away of power… just as rape itself is. Controversy has roiled around the last couple of seasons for this very reason and we have some things to say on the matter ourselves.

But fear not, we’re not simply going to toil through the grueling task of social commentary and we’re certainly not going to stake a claim on any kind of moral certitude… we’ve got silliness and laughs enough to go around.
