Queen regent Cersei (Lena Headey): If it were anyone else I would have hoped for a private audience. But Stannis Baratheon, I’d have a better chance of seducing his horse. Have I shocked you little dove? Tears aren’t a woman’s only weapon. The best one’s between your legs. Learn how to use it. Do you have any notion what happens when a city is sieged? If this city falls these fine women should be in for a bit of a rape. Half of them will have bastards come morning! You’ll be glad of your red flower heh? When a man’s blood is up anything with tits looks good. Precious thing like you would look very, very good, a slice of cake just waiting to be eaten.

IF LOTR had incest, rape, homosexuality, adultery, sadomasochism, treachery, deceit, murder, conspiracy upon conspiracy it would be Game of Thrones. GOT makes LOTR & The Hobbit look like a Disney version, filtering out the worst, most vicious parts of human nature while creator George RR Martin has no qualms in mixing it in with heroism and nobility. (this is the first article of a series)

The complexity of the GOT universe lends itself to the miniseries genre. The TV format with many episodes stretching seasons allows for greater character development and subplots. HBO is known for having sex and violence in its many award winning series like: The Sopranos, Sex In the City, Deadwood, most recently TRUEBLOOD and True Detective which casts movie stars Rachel McAdams, Collin Farrell & Vince Vaughn.

It’s very difficult to imagine anyone else being able to pull off GOT other than HBO. GOT has become a worldwide phenomenon subtitled in every major language from Chinese to Portuguese. At the end of season 5 it broke the downloading records with 1.5 million in one day, which is such a pity. The official collector’s DVD has so many features, interviews, behind the scenes footage that fans would really love to watch.

Going back to the topic at hand, sex in GOT is almost never prurient or used simply for entertainment value although it does help to attract more viewers too. Sex or even nudity almost always has a purpose or meaning other than just satisfying one’s desire. Rape, for example, is just as effective as a weapon in destroying your enemies or showing dominance over a conquered people. This has been the case throughout history in countless wars and invasions.

Royal Weddings

Marriage especially for the highborn (nobility) was never about romance, attraction or love. They were arranged to keep the peace for the greater good of all. Often marriage is even between warring or rival clans. It was a means to keep your enemies closer and to use resources they would not otherwise be willing to sacrifice. This is the case for nearly all royal weddings: Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) to Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and so on.

“I can turn around (gives her backside) and you can pretend I’m Loras. We can have him here… anything you need and want we will do, for you are King.” Margaery (Natalie Dormer) to King Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony).

There are very few exceptions Robb Stark (Richard Madden) married Talisa Maegyr (Oona Chaplin) out of love breaking his promise to wed the granddaughter of Lord Walder Fray. Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) fell in love with Ygritte (Rose Leslie). True love in GOT is incredibly rare and is doomed, again just like real life. Jon Snow swore a vow of celibacy as a member of the Nights Watch. He broke it in a passionate and unexpected tryst with wildling Ygritte who was dominant in sex as she was in the battlefield.

Incest

The whole root of conflict from season 1 and arguably even onwards is connected to the incestuous love affair of twins’ Cersei and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Both of them are platinum blonde. Cersei with her perfect cheekbones like a true Queen of beauties, Jaime is one of the best swordsmen and powerful knight with cleft chin dashing looks.

In one steamy scene Jaime rapes Cersei during a funeral. It was borne out of grief, anger, frustration and lust on Jaime’s part. That’s one of the reasons why fans relate to the series, you understand how and why he reacts that way. Sex comes from a lot of different situations and emotions not just love or purely lust.

They’re the original sex symbols for GOT since the first season. Their sexual relations bore 3 children: Joffrey, Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) and Myrcella (Aimee Richardson). The Royal House of Targaryen were also famously incestuous in order to preserve their bloodlines which allowed them to bond with dragons. The problem is the side effects of incest. Cersei Lannister said, “Half the Targaryens went mad didn’t they? What’s the saying? ‘Every time a Targaryen is born the gods flip a coin.”

Incest however is not confined to nobility, Craster (Robert Pugh) lives beyond the wall. He is known to impregnate his own daughters and ‘gives away’ his sons. He calls his daughters his wives and lives with more than a dozen of them in a lone hut surrounded by frozen tundra.

Sadomasochism

King Joffrey, who was the product of incest, had exhibited sadism at an early age. He was fond of torturing and killing animals as a child. As king he graduated by having a singer’s tongue cut out for making fun of his family.

After having his betrothed punched and stripped of her clothes in court, his uncle Tyrion thought the young King needed to release some pent up energy. Tyrion sent him 2 whores in his chambers. King Joffrey had one spank the other at first with a belt, then with a scepter. When the whore refused he threatened her life with a crossbow. Kingsguard Meryn Trant (Ian Beattie) enjoyed lashing young girls with a bullwhip for his sexual pleasure.

No one is more cruel and sadistic as Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) the bastard son of Roos Bolton. He captures Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) then tortures and castrates him. What’s even worse is the mental torture that he unleashes upon him, its so dehumanizing that Theon forgets his identity and takes on a new personality Ramsay gives him as Reek. The method is similar to PULP FICTION where the sexually dominated, enslaved character is called ‘the gimp’.

Collectible Bluray/DVD

Fans have always lusted after the incestuous super MILF Cersei Lannister since season 1. For season 5 Lena Heady as Queen regent Cersei is punished for her ‘unnatural’ incestuous relations. And is made to walk naked across the city. Sorry to disappoint them but Cersei’s nudity scene had body double-Rebecca Van Cleave. The VFX was able to do it very realistically that no one would ever know it was not Lena Heady’s naked body.

Queen Regent Cersei (Lena Heady) is certainly the most captivating face in the kingdom. She’s also one of the most viciously cruel characters in GOT.

It was more demeaning than arousing, nevertheless countless fans may still need to see it again and again. In order to fully ‘appreciate’ this scene having the official DVD with extra footage would be even more indispensible. The airing of HBO episodes here in the Philippines has the more revealing scenes cut out. The extra features possibly with more nude scenes are definitely worth the price.
