George R. R. Martin: Penis and vagina good, axe not so goodPosted 1:50 pm on Friday, July 27th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Yeah, I know it sucks that we’ll have to wait until next year for the third season of Game of Thrones. That’s good for me though, since I’m currently halfway on Season 2. Game of Thrones creator and author, George R. R. Martin, recently talks about how our society is prude. Show them killing of people and they cheer, but shown them sex and they go crazy.
“I can describe an axe entering a human skull in great explicit detail and no one will blink twice at it. I provide a similar description, just as detailed, of a penis entering a vagina, and I get letters about it and people swearing off,” he said.
“To my mind this is kind of frustrating, it’s madness. Ultimately, in the history of [the] world, penises entering vaginas have given a lot of people a lot of pleasure; axes entering skulls, well, not so much.”
I can drink to that. Penises entering vaginas are a good thing, while axes entering skulls aren’t.
Game of Thrones season 3 begins March 31, 2013.
