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.
