Game Of Thrones sex scenes ranked from least to most enjoyable

6. Jon Snow and Ygritte

7. Daenerys and Jon on a boat
7. Daenerys and Jon on a boat
At the end of series seven, Daenerys and Jon’s boat sex felt like the biggest moment, something we’d all been waiting for, and the cementing of a couple that would change the show. But Daenerys and Jon’s relationship was actually very flaccid in the series and we really only got to see the big, dramatic bits rather than anything that gave us a sense these two people had any real affection for each other. “You love each other,” characters kept telling us, without much evidence to back it up. When Jon killed her, it... well, it was inevitable, but it wasn’t much else.
This is all to say: the boat sex between aunt Daenerys and her nephew wasn’t sexy, was deeply weird and didn’t give us any sense that this couple mattered. It also, let’s be honest, was only there as a blunt strike to the head to make us understand exactly what Bran and Sam were saying about Jon’s parentage: an exclamation mark when a full stop would have sufficed. Absolutely nothing about this scene, in retrospect, feels worth it – even for Kit Harington’s lovely heinie (which we had, it’s worth saying, seen plenty of by this point).
6. Jon Snow and Ygritte
In the show’s continued campaign to make us think Jon Snow is a perfect man, he spends his first ever sexual experience with a woman engaging in cunnilingus that he has intuited might be a great time for all. He’s right but also... come on! As if Jon Snow is the only man in Westeros with a knowledge of the clitoris! (Well, except Podrick.)
Clearly, Ygritte and Jon Snow had some chemistry – Rose Leslie and Kit Harington, after all, are an actual couple – and the cave sex scene has become one of the icons of the series. While it’s intimate, and a blessed reprieve from the wastes of the scenes beyond the wall, it lacks some of the intimacy of some of our other more favoured scenes.
1. Daenerys and Khal Drogo
1. Daenerys and Khal Drogo
Daenerys and Drogo’s plotline in the show’s second ever episode is one we very rarely get to see on Game of Thrones: it’s one about how to make sex better within a couple, rather than how simple it is to have it with whoever you fancy. Daenerysfinds the (not entirely consensual) sex with her bestial husband a bit much and so asks for a sexually wisened maidservant to teach her. The roleplay between the two women has its own blinding chemistry, but it’s the sex between Daenerys and Drogo at the end that really sells it. Not only do we get a flash of Jason Momoa’s rear, but Daenerys manages to convince Drogo that sex with her lowering herself onto his penis will be more enjoyable and to both of their surprises it is. The joy and the relief on their faces is such a rarity in a world of one hit wonder bangs that you really can’t help but get a little into. Ten out of Ten, would scout out on YouTube again (I mean, I wouldn’t, there’s real pornography out there, but the still point stands).
