Let me fist (typo and it STAYS) say that if you have not seen the HBO series Game of Thrones (first season) and you intend to, then skip this post because it has a lot of spoilers.
I am enraptured with the series. I should disclaim that HBO sent me a mind-blowing olfactory, interactive marketing package before the series began, and so I was quite warmed up to liking the series thanks to their deviously brilliant marketing department.
What I did not expect was that I’d fall deep into the series, be led by the frontal cortex into the narrative, get turned upside down by star-turn monologues and visceral characters, or that I’d love it for the twists, turns, elaborate visuals, that it’s about to add serious elements of horror, and – yes – for the hot sex.
There was a controversy about this series before it made its debut, with critics decrying the sexual content and insulting viewers (especially female sci-fi and fantasy fans) before any of us had a chance to decide for ourselves what our relationship with *any* sexual content in fictional storytelling is, let alone how it was portrayed in Game of Thrones.
The people doing the poo-pooing and shaming the sexual content and those potentially interested in it (like the New York Times saying Game of Thrones was “porn for women”) just ended up looking like idiots that didn’t understand fantasy fans, girls, the digital era of sexuality (especially female) and missed the point and excitement of what turned out to be one of the best things HBO has done since Deadwood.
Besides – as a woman that has edited the bestselling series on literotica for women for the past six years, I can tell you this: Storytelling – whether crime, horror, fantasy, sci-fi ar anything that’s worth a damn contains sex, and not just light cliche sex, but sex that is far more redeeming, ethically errant, character-flawing and rewarding as other essential storytelling elements. Game of Thrones nailed it.
This post has videos and images found all over the internet – and it is a testament to how much I can’t wait until next season. References, credits and sources at post conclusion.
