[book spoilers] A discourse on sex in a Game of Thrones
Posted 26 April 2012 - 06:28 AM
This is an article written online against the nature of the sex scenes in the GoT TV series. It is well written, and establishes these idea in a very readable manner.
A friend of mine has written an article in rebuttal. It is also well written and his thoughts are made clear and concise.
Both of these I found enjoyable, although I am in the pro-sex camp myself.

The rebuttal author also loses credibility (IMHO) when he claims that the novels' misogyny is necessary to GRRM's medieval-inspired world, but if you're on this forum you already know that critiques more eloquent than mine could ever be have pointed out all the aspects that are decidedly different than medieval European culture; the author could have chosen something more "civilized" as regards women, among all the choices he's making and all the fantastical elements he's adding.
I realize both editorials are sarcastic and, at least for the rebuttal, partly tongue-in-cheek.
The real question is: are the actors wearing prosthetic penises?

Although i partialy agree with the article is still think is a massive waste of screen time, and there is realy no need for it, even the scenes from whe book should be cut depending on relevance same as the rest of the story.

It wont stop me watching though, its still the best programme on tv but it could be so much more.

Also there is a scene in which a guy's tongue is ripped out through his throat, so maybe back off on the sex.
