I honestly don't see Sandor as being a particularly skilled lover, by which I mean having a squee amount of bedroom skillz. I assume that for the most part he's only ever dealt with his sexual needs with whores and, sadly, but this is the way of warriors, even though there's nothing in the text to affirm or deny, via post battle rape, as soldiers tend to do.
For all those assumptions, Sandor is a man who is clearly undergoing much in the way of personal changes, and the text does support that he is capable of a "not ungentle" touch. So I suppose there is the hope that if SanSanage does occur that he doesn't simply take her brutally. Then again, it's difficult to suss what, exactly, fuels the fires of the fandom.
Somethig about a maid? I´m going to reread everything about the hound to find out!!!!!
Anyway, I just can´t see the washer women talking about that. Sandor visited whores, that is all we know.
About the: "younger and faster" I just took as a proof of Sandor loosing favor and power on Joffrey´s. They were beginning to go each one in different paths.Also it is show that the Imp was getting what he want: Sandor away of Joffrey. Ad people just take notice that Sandor is been replaced by one younger and faster, even they really haven´t see it in a real combat or in a tourney. While they had see Sandor warriors skills at many.
Something was on my head: why Sandor starts talking with Sansa? What have changed inside him to do it?
I just believe that in the tourney when he proves in front of everybody how was his brother and he fight him, something changed inside him. But this will have a point if Sandor speaks to Sansa after the second day. However, it was the opposite, after speaking with Sansa, something changed inside him. He react in a more honorable behaviour saving Loras.
And also, in that first conversation, something got in Sansa. She knew that he was going to win everybody. She begun to havean unbreakable faith on The Hound. So just in that fist night was created a bound between them.
