'Game Of Thrones' Finally Gives Fans An Empowering, Loving, Consensual Sex Scene

'Game Of Thrones' Finally Gives Fans An Empowering, Loving, Consensual Sex Scene”

Game of Thrones has received plenty of criticism for its sex scenes, many of which have been violent and non-consensual.

However, last night Games of Thrones did something quite unprecedented.

As wars got planned and men with greyscale got skinned alive, Game of Thrones Season 7 episode two also gave us some resolution to the show's best unrequited love.

Most importantly, the love making or the sex scene between the two has changed the perception of the viewers.

With Grey Worm revealing Missandei is his "weakness", the former slaves kiss, disrobe and finally had sex, taking ownership and power of their bodies that have so always been dictated by propriety, slavery, honour and duty.

As he tried to cover himself, ashamed of how she might react to his castration, she assured him that it didn't matter to her.

Of course, we can not forget that this is Game of Thrones and bad things will certainly befall their blossoming love. In response Missandei kissed him and removed her clothes in a move that showed how much she trusted him - encouraging him to do the same.

Missandei and Grey Worm, on the other hand, are equals - both former slaves and dutiful to their Queen, Daenerys- with their relationship founded first on friendship and respect for each other's honour, not a battle for power and pleasure.
