Not even warm enough to take a bath in. In the early seasons, Thrones used sex and nudity as a way to draw in fans who might not normally be interested in a complex fantasy saga. This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven, episode seven. Loveable virgin Podrick became our hero after popping his cherry with several prostitutes and then being told it was too good to accept payment. Most Game of Thrones fans would argue that the show is much more than its stigma of being nothing more than just sex, swords, and dragons.
This was an intense moment - moments before Daenerys becomes the first Targaryen to ride a dragon in over a century, we brace ourselves for the possibility of one of our favourite characters going to the Game of Thrones graveyard just before she tells Drogon to fly and they make a narrow escape. She even had the guts to say this even though her hands were bound in rope. But the great thing about the moment is it wasn't just built out of lust and sexual tension. Because, while they might be dead, they're still probably having better sex than these two.
But was it still kind of hot? After being insulted by slave master, Kraznys, the Mother of Dragons decided enough was enough. Sadly for the both of them, it was also the beginning of the end. Here's the best of the best, which we went ahead and rated on a scale of dracarys dragonfire flames, because we are unabashed nerds. During the scene, our soon-to-be badass Khaleesi is terrified, crying and trying to cover herself up while Drogo has his way with her.
Perhaps her most raunchiest scenes involved Jason Momoa, who played her strapping Dothraki savage husband Khal Drogo. Thank goodness for Jorah who also helped to protect and died for the Queen of Dragons. We felt the urge to bow down to The Mother of Dragons in front of our television screens. Sex, in terms of both theme and plot, is key to the very fabric of Game of Thrones. Only the bravest go Beyond the Wall.
With a woman as hot as Daenerys Targaryen, in all respects, how could we not compile a list of her hottest pictures? Marked as one of the most in the first season, Khaleesi was made to eat the entire raw heart of a horse during an ancient Dothraki ritual. Thankfully, Dany has a history of not letting her less-than-ideal life circumstances hold her back. Throughout six seasons of the show, we have witnessed the slow build of her rise from a lowly, repressed object under her own brother to the independent and powerful Queen of Mareen. Unsurprisingly, Tyrion has a different kind of feast planned. This scene definitely counts as one of the best Daenerys episodes, yet. I am writing this from the floor because I still haven't been able to get up.
Breaking his celibacy was also the first faintly rebellious thing Jon Snow did, which made us like him a lot more. Despite the fact that Grey Worm was castrated when he became part of the Unsullied and was hesitant to drop trou in front of Missandei, he eventually undresses and seems to give some top-notch oral sex. Whatever the case, let's hope they light the fire next season—they'll need it against those White Walkers. Mostly because they're —and unless you are physically attracted to your blood relatives, chances are you spent their boat-side love making session trying to suppress side-eyes while also cursing yourself for how hard you're here for their relationship. The scene is a very sultry one.
But far from being disgusted by the on-screen representation of the taboo sexual practice, fans were actually thrilled to see the couple finally get together in the season seven finale on Sunday. Anyone who breaks it deserves punishment. She is a good girl. Instead we were given a healthy dose of nudity - one example of which arises in the first episode. At Dragonstone, Melisandre makes her move on Stannis, who protests for all of half a second. It just so happens that she is on one of the most skin-tastic characters on television at the moment, which is always a bonus.
We have been waiting for it. By Kathleen Johnston Grey Worm and Missandei at Dragonstone series seven, episode two After a sexless episode one, Grey Worm and Missandei finally get it on, before the commander of the Unsullied goes off to battle at Casterly Rock. After feeling defeated with no husband or baby, our favourite protagonist rose from the fire and ashes literally and proved herself to be the true Dragon queen. Despite the fact that Loras is betrothed to Sansa, we soon learn that he jousts for the other team. These two have been hopelessly smitten forever, and to see them so vulnerable was extremely sweet. She went from being one of the most beloved characters on the show to the most controversial.
