Admittedly it's been awhile since I've read the books but from what I remember the sex was mostly the same. Rose was gratuitous but she's not around anymore and I think she usually filled in for "random whore sex".

Naw, the books don't have a whole lot of sex in them. They have some nudity and adult themes, but most sex is implied or happens behind the scenes. Actual sex scenes only happen a few times.

I think I'm going to double check this. Maybe it is that it's just implied, but it's certainly implied as much as it happens in the show. I remember some pretty graphic instances though.

In what manner are the sex scenes described in the books? I do understand it's not just wiener wiener floppy wiener.

I have read them but it would be going on 2-3 years ago. I remember the sex scene by dead Joffrey for sure and I remember some raunchy Theon Grayjoy scenes. I don't think they are outright making it up for the most part but I will concede that they may be showing what the books only implied.

Yeah Theon has some sex scenes, from memory with that girl on the ship and Winterfell whores (although I'm less certain on that). Besides that I don't recall any for him.

20 minute long sex scenes

What TV show are you watching?!

A show with 45 minute sex scenes. Game of Bones.

Doesn't seem to have the full HBO budget. I have written to HBO to complain.

The Winterfell scene was only in the show.  Theon didn't become a viewpoint character until A Clash of Kings.

I'm pretty sure he mentioned whores to Rob Stark, or something like that.

Does this series still suck?

The boyfriend can't get into it and he loves fantasy, he just isn't much of a character-driven drama person.

For me it has nothing to do with drama. I love good character drama, it's what makes a series for me. Your generalization is incorrect.
It's probably because of all the gratuitous sex scenes. It is extremely unnecessary and adds absolutely nothing to the plot other than "omg so edgey HBO lol". That is my #1 issue with the series. I have no problem with sex scenes normally, however, there are ways to imply sex or show romance or betrayal without showing a 10 minute scene of the characters doing it. It is extremely distasteful and uncomfortable to the point where I cannot and will not watch it.
10-20 minute sex scenes? No.

The books have a lot of sex so it's not all HBO's doing. And I find this kinda weird in general. I hate porn but these scenes don't make me uncomfortable at all. I could understand if you thought they were just thrown in there pointlessly, but they're generally not.

Speaking of uncomfortable scenes, I don't particularly care for the Theon story at all.

Thank God they changed Brienne's awful, awful storyline.  Now they won't have to bother covering about two or three hundred pages' worth of Brienne investigating dead ends, going on scenic tours of Westeros, and accomplishing absolutely nothing by the end of it all.

Isn't she the one who finds Catlynn? Or however you spell her name.


Also, I started watching season 4 finally and I'm 3 episodes in. I expected more sex. So far it's just Oberyn at the whore house and the Cersei/Jaime kinda rape. She really just seemed uninterested in having sex by Joeffrey rather than the sex itself so the outrage seems a bit excessive.

While Brienne is exploring Westeros in search of the girls.

I think I read something about HBO killing off characters that aren't dead in the books. I'm on my phone or I would look myself. In any case, I would really hate if that happened.

It already has happened, though.  Robb's wife is the obvious example, but there's also Xaro, Pyat Pree, Irri, and Doreah.

Anyway, of course they're going to include Stoneheart.  They could hardly cut her out.  Although I do worry that her appearance won't have quite the impact that it did in the books, seeing how Catelyn's character was so neutered in the series.
