Even though it's over, if there's one thing Game of Thrones remains notorious for—aside from that ending—it's the sex scenes that littered the series. From season one, episode one, GoT was a show that wasn't afraid to show plenty of sex scenes, from young hotties Daenerys and Jon Snow to the incestuous pairing that were Cersei and Jamie. There was plenty of death in Game of Thrones , including many of the people above—it's been over for a while, guys, I'm not going to apologize for the spoiler—but, dare I say it, there were even more sex scenes. Do not me. Did Melisandre ultimately seduce Gendry with the goal of surprising him by bringing leeches into the bedroom to suck out some of his blood for some ritual? Was it hot in a BDSM-y way? Look, we know this scene was 50 shades of disgusting. What is life! You would think Theon would know when and how to keep it in his pants, but it seems that day will never come. The idea of hooking up on a horse is what makes this scene so steamy, just not the part about finding out it was with his sister.
A look at the show's latest shocking scenes
Not all sex on Game of Thrones is created equal. Sure, the HBO fantasy drama has not unfairly developed a reputation for gratuitous violence and sexual relations of all configurations—man on woman, man on man, sorceress on man, brother on sister—but some of that stuff matters. Sex is wielded in Westeros, like everything else, as a form of power. If you're demanding it the way Daenerys tells her bearded underling to strip, it's a good sign you're in charge.
Skip navigation! Story from TV Shows. Along with The Real World and Sex and the City , Game of Thrones used to be the kind of show that I would never, ever consider watching with my parents. Some of the time, these scenes were relevant to a character's story arc. Most of the time, though, there was no point to the nudity. Characters pranced around naked because it was an HBO show and hey, why not.
