Game of Thrones has a sex scene that does not involve either whores or rape and consists of two participants who have feelings for each other? The scene is actually...gasp...romantic?! Is the world about to end?!



I am not following GoT season 2 (in large part because of my issues with endless rape and treatment of women in s1) but this scene made me melt about 100 different ways and the whole idea of Robb/Talisa would almost make me change my mind about following this, except for the fact that in Martin's world, any character I remotely like (and they are hard enough to find in his singularly repellent world) ends up dying gruesomely while the bad guys prosper.

Talisa - not evil/not whore/not victim = dead
Robb - has honor/not rapist/idealistic = like Ned = dead.

No thanks.

Have a shippy MV though:
