Why No Gay Sex in Game of Thrones Books?

Game of Thrones Gay Sex

I understand that most people watch the HBO series “Game Of Thrones” for its copious and brutal acts of violence and for its regular bouts of carnal exercise. It’s noticeable, however, that this carnal exercise has explicitly been of the heterosexual variety in George R.R. Martin’s books, though that’s not the case on the TV show adapted from the novels. Why might this be?…

“Frankly, it is the way I prefer to write fiction because that is the way all of us experience life. You’re seeing me from your viewpoint, you’re not seeing what someone over here is seeing,” Martin said. However, this makes the books far more rigid in structure than TV. For him, because none of the viewpoint characters is gay, there hasn’t been the opportunity for gay sex.

He still has two books to write. Might that mean a broader carnal viewpoint would be accommodated? He said: “It might. I’ve had letters from fans who want me to present particularly an explicit male sex scene — most of the letters come from women.”
