Addititionally there is a good amount of lesbian lust blooming in GoT. Daenerys Targaryen, mom of dragons, is headed through the entire show’s long narrative to Westeros to claim right back the Iron Throne which was taken from her murderous and father that is insane. But, before some of that begins we see her as being a stressed virgin being instructed in just how to please her guy by acting down roles and intimate details with an other woman. Bi-curiosity pops out of the display.

It’s a bi-curiosity that Daenerys shows again five seasons later on because of the show’s fully-fledged lover that is sapphic Greyjoy – a possible ally by having a much-needed navy – in an excellent scene where flirtation and political consummation mingle inextricably. Yara is this kind of appealing seductress that Ellaria Sands, another possible ally of Daenerys, additionally comes to get her hand between Yara’s feet at one point in the governmental assignations, while she purrs that she’s “developing a taste for it”.

Bisexuality is embodied not merely by Ellaria Sands, but additionally by her lover Oberyn that is male Martell. Whenever Oberyn is shown a line-up of females in a brothel, he admires each woman’s beauty and character before looking at the son whom is pimping them and demanding to rest with him. This kind of man that is beautiful Oberyn isn’t met with any style of disgusted denial. The pimp/host Olyvar simply replies that he’s “wildly expensive”. Maybe “gay for pay” exists in Westeros too?
