Through six seasons of Game of Thrones, there's been plenty of nudity to go around. But compared to the first few seasons, the three more recent ones have been fairly tame when it comes to portraying sex. Still, there's been a serious amount of nakedness in most episodes (even by HBO standards). Here are the NSFW scenes from the last few seasons of GoT that we'll never forget. And yeah, it includes spoilers.
Sam Finally Gets the Girl
In a show full of nudity and violence, this had us cheering harder than anything else. Who didn't want to see Sam and Gilly get together? There are really only two words to describe our feelings: Oh my.
Just when it seemed like Khaleesi was done getting naked on screen, she busts out of a burning building in her birthday suit. This one was way more about power than love, but it was hot (in more ways than one) nonetheless. Here's hoping Daenerys "I-Have-50-Names-and-Titles" Targaryen decides to burn down a few more buildings in the remaining seasons.
Before we're introduced to his homeland of Dorne, we meet the charming Prince Oberyn Martell. It's clear from the get-go that he's fond of a few things, and they primarily include fighting, drinking, and hooking up with as many people as possible. Male, female, both at the same time, it really doesn't matter to the Red Viper.
For the first five seasons of Game of Thrones, Melisandre seemed a relatively spry witch. That all changed when she took off her necklace in the first episode of the sixth season. Of all the Game of Thrones nude scenes, this was one of the most shocking.
Political Power Play
If there's one person who knew how to use sex as a weapon in Westeros, it was Margaery. Before her unceremonious demise, the apparent leader of the next generation of Tyrells (let's face it, Loras wasn't really going anywhere) managed to work her way into relationships with back-to-back sibling kings. Sure, the first was an awful tyrant and the second was a tremendous pushover, but it was still impressive.

Greyjoy Good Times
Game of Thrones, meet your new hero. With her brother tortured and maimed, Yara Greyjoy is now the only member of her immediate family who will be taking the ladies to bed. And if this scene and her conversation with Daenerys are any indication, then she should have plenty of luck with that.
Dany x Daario
Just when you thought there was true love somewhere in the Seven Kingdoms, politics get involved and the couple's forced to break up. Yeah, things could've ended much worse for Daario, as most people don't survive parting ways with the Mother of Dragons, but they seemed like they could really work. The only thing that could come between them? Her unrelenting quest for the Iron Throne.
A Pair for the Ages
Did it seem like Shae and Tyrion were ever really going to work out? Probably not. But we were rooting for them, we were all rooting for them (*inserts America's Next Top Model gif*). Although most of their sex took place in the first few seasons, it dragged into the fourth for a bit before Tyrion ultimately realized what he had to do.
