I don’t know how you read the scene in the book, but I’m having a hard time imagining a 30 year old warlord and a 12 year old girl having tender and kind sex the first time, especially given the way the Dothraki men tend to treat sex.
Tender might not have been it exactly, but at least Drogo was like “Hey, gurl, I see that you are really scared and nervous, but I’m going to make this as pleasant as I can for you, gurl, and do the foreplay before we do the sex.”
Daenerys and Drogo’s relationship does a full 180 after the first couple episodes. I’m not sure why they changed it from the book but it ends up working out.
Either way HBO is terrifying and horrible
Even their relationship in the book isn’t exactly the best, but the first sex scene between them was so cute and sweet and Daenerys was the one to initiate the actual sex in that scene. Why wasn’t that good enough? Why did they have to make Drogo out to be so fucking creepy?
It’s entirely possible to be ruthless in combat and gentle in bed, those aren’t mutually separate things.
I’m just so frustrated, HBO is horrible.
Why does HBO insist on taking consensual, even rather tender and kind, sex scenes from the Game of Thrones books coughdaenarysanddrogocough and turning them into creepy, sketchy rape scenes???
Like… is sex not interesting? Are two or more consenting individuals having sex too boring? I don’t understand whhhyyyyy
