Game of Thrones is arguably best known for its brutally violent scenes. Last week's "Red Wedding" episode is a stark (har har) example of just how horrific the show can get.

The first season's baby-killing scenes most certainly turned a lot of people off to the entire series, but if you stuck with it, you're probably thankful you did. It is without a doubt one of the hottest television shows on right now, and for good reason. (It will hold a place in our top five shows of all time for the foreseeable future along with The Wire, Twin Peaks, Big Love, and Breaking Bad.)

But this is an HBO series we're talking about, so sex closely rivals the abundance of blood and gore. The show spawned the term "sexposition," after all.

To cleanse your palate after last week's episode, here are our five favorite sex scenes from the last three seasons of Game of Thrones, cause we know that's what you really want to see.

5. Cersei and Jaime Lannister in the tower of Winterfell. This is the sex that started it all. Brother and sister get caught diddling in the tower by a young Bran Stark. Jamie then pushes the boy from the tower window. It's no surprise this eventually led to a war between Starks and Lannisters.

 

4. Ros gets taught a thing or two by Lord "Littlefinger" Baelish. This is the scene that prompted blogger Myles McNutt to coin the term "sexposition," which means enveloping background information within a sex scene.

3. Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen learns how to please her man, Khal Drogo. How long will it be until Khaleesi gets it on with her new love interest Daario?

 

2. Jon Snow (finally) gets seduced by Ygritte in a cave. Did Jon Snow ever really love Ygritte? Where did he ride off to? Will they get back together? So many questions.

1. Robb Stark and Talisa fool around for the first ... and last time. It's easy to get sappy over this love scene after last week's episode.

George R. R. Martin and the writers working on the Game of Thrones HBO series are masters of character development. Being able to get the GoT audience to sympathize with Jaime Lannister this season is a miracle in and of itself.

Then to kill off the two main "good" counterbalances to the Lannister's "evil" — and have people even more invested in the show — is just showing off.
