There are many, many things we do for love. And f**k.
One thing that ‘Game of Thrones’ is known for more than its outstanding drama is (any guesses?) sex. Nothing for the guess though, you are no Sherlock. And in all likelihood, you haven’t been living behind a massive rock for the past six years. The six seasons of the show have had their massive ups and downs; nemesis strikes in every season, there are wars, there are dragons but there is a lot of sex in between. Shakespeare had comic interludes; George RR Martin has sex interludes. But for neither was it without motives. All this medieval pomp and show for sex has given us major rules for seduction and cajolery in our modern day. Here we list eight such learnings from the hook-ups that took place in Westeros so far. Because there are many, many things we do for love. And f**k.
When Daenerys told Drogo, “Tonight I would look upon your face”
This has to be one of the most powerful statements that have been yet made on the show, all the more because it comes from the then-meek, docile Daenerys. She finally learns to take charge of her steed. She rides the big, dragon-like Drogo and the scene is so potently foreshadowing her growth; of her riding the dragons. She taught us how taking control is never a bad idea.
Robb and Talisa on the floor
Having withheld it for some time, Robb and Lady Talissa give way to lust (or love?) and take it down to the floor. This spelled for us how impromptu sex is the most passionate. Let it be in the moment and driven by your hormones, not location.

The pansexuality of Prince Oberyn
Pedro Pascal, the actor who plays the role of Prince Oberyn, said during an interview about the character that he plays, “This is the way he understands life, to live it to its fullest. And to limit yourself in terms of experience doesn’t make any sense to him — what’s beautiful is beautiful… So why leave out girls or boys, you know what I mean?” Do you understand what he means?
“When it comes to war I fight for Dorne, when it comes to love…I don’t choose sides, said Oberyn. That’s some metier.
The adorable banter of Loras Tyrell and Renly Baratheon
They have one of the most stable relationships on the show. Their body shaving scenes and oral sessions are too hot! Though Renly is married to Margaery, Loras’s sister, everyone approves of these hot guys doing hot things to each other.
