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. Of course, sometimes bare boobs are just bare boobs. And sex is often a relief—for the characters and the viewers. You need something to break up all the beheading, impaling, and disemboweling.

And while these scenes can involve some hard-to-watch incest ahem, Jaime and Cersei or extremely cringey rape scenes like Ramsay and Sansa , there are also plenty of hot, steamy scenes to provide some sweet relief from the brutal world that is the game of thrones thank you, Jon and Ygritte. Here are the 27 hottest to downright uncomfy scenes the show has given us over the past eight seasons. The first episode of the series set the tone for unsettling sex scenes with Khal Drogo raping Dany on their wedding night. 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. Thankfully, Dany has a history of not letting her less-than-ideal life circumstances hold her back. When Tyrion arrives in Winterfell, he not-so-surprisingly makes his first stop the local brothel, where he hires Ros for her services. Their time together is quickly interrupted by Jaime, who wants to make sure his brother is going to be at dinner.
Game of Thrones. The HBO adaptation of George RR Martin's novel was full of some of the most sensual, and most disgusting, sexual encounters ever committed to film. Beyond the proliferation of it, did it serve any purpose? Did it get anybody a little roused? Was it just to make a boring scene more interesting?
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?
