Relationship and Sex Lessons from “Game of Thrones”

Eyes closed

Scared to look

This past weekend I discovered a little series called “Game of Thrones.”  You may have heard of it.  I’ve only watched the first few episodes of it, but I wanted to share a simple lesson that I observed.  But first, some background.

Daenerys is the daughter of the last Targaryen king and ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, Aerys Targaryen.  When King Aerys is murdered, his two surviving children (and rightful heirs), Viserys and Daenerys, are exiled to safety.  Her brother, Viserys, conspires to have her marry Khal Drogo, a powerful warlord of the Dothraki people in order to obtain an army to defeat the current king of the Seven Kingdoms.  Daenerys has told him several times that she doesn’t want to be married to him, but he responds that he would let Khal Drogo, his men, and their horses fuck her if it meant that he would get his army and become rightful ruler.

Although he does not say a word during his first encounter with Daenerys, we learn a few important things about Khal Drogo.  We’re told that a Dothraki’s hair is cut off if he loses a battle, and see that he has arrived with his long hair tied back in a braid.  He does not arrive with a cavalry of men, just a handful behind him; he is clad only in pants and shoes, bearing a strong physique; they ride away acknowledging Daenerys with a glare, forcing her to question if he approves of her, which she is told “You would know if he didn’t.”  Soon after, the two are married: one, a privileged heiress to Seven Kingdoms, the other the leader of barbaric people who place great importance on horses.  During the wedding, the Dothraki’s simulate sexual acts instead of dancing and celebrate when a fight on the “dance floor” ends up in a disembowelment.  Daenerys is appalled.  During the course of the episode, Khal Drogo fucks his wife from behind several times, not wanting to face her or even let her talk.  To me, it symbolizes an extension of his power and dominance on the battlefield which is transferred to the bedroom.

In season 1 episode 2 entitled “The Kingsroad,” Daenerys asks one of her handmaidens, Doreah, who was once a courtesan for Khal Drogo, to give her some tips on how to please her husband.  The scene is set it a warm, but dimly lit tent. (Daenerys is lying on the bed, Doreah is sitting on her looking down at her)
Doreah: No, Khaleesi, you must look him in the eyes always. Love comes in at the eyes.  It is said that Irogenia of Lys could finish a man with nothing but her eyes. (They lock fingers)
Daenerys: Finish a man? (she thinks about this) Oh.
Doreah: Kings traveled across the world for a night with Irogenia. magisters sold palaces, khals burned her enemies to just have her for a few hours.  They say a thousand men proposed to her and she refused them all.
Daenerys:  Well, she sounds like an interesting woman.  I don’t think the Drogo will like me on top.
Doreah:  You will make him like it, Khaleesi.  Men want what they’ve never had.  And the Dothraki take slaves like a hound takes a bitch.  Are you a slave, Khaleesi?
(Daenerys shakes her head.  Doreah places the queen’s hands on her hips and starts to grind on her majesty, showing her how to fuck from on top)
Doreah:  Then don’t make love like a slave.  (A look of hesitation is overcome by one of ferocity as she quickly changes places with Doreah).  Very good, Khaleesi. Out there he is the mighty Khal, but in this tent he belongs to you.
Daenerys:  I–I don’t think that this is the Dothraki way.
Doreah:  If he wanted the Dothraki way, why did he marry you?

From behind

From behind

The scene changes to Daenerys lying in wait on a fur-line bed, candles burning everywhere.  Khal Drogo walks in with a look of confusion on his face as he makes a slight hesitation.  He immediately takes his place behind her.  “No,” she tells him firmly.  He pushes her onto her hands and knees.  She turns around and tells him, “Tonight I will look upon your face.”  She means business and will not submit to him.  He tries one last time to turn her over (although it was a feeble attempt), but she stands her ground.  She mounts him and begins to grind her man.  He grabs her breasts and caresses her ass.  He sits up and they begin to grind together; the whole while they are facing each other and staring into each other’s eyes.

Later we see Daenerys riding on a horse (in pants and boots) with her adopted people and orders them to stop.  She dismounts her horse and walks away from everyone’s sight.  Her brother, Viserys, rushes to her, puts his hands on her throat and says, “You do not command me! I am the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms! I don’t take orders from savages…or their sluts!” He is removed from his sister and asked if she wants him punished for disrespecting her.  Everyone turns to her to wait for her command. She tells them not to harm him.  At this point, she realizes the power she has as the Khaleesi.  The Dothroki look at each other and shrug, but obey her nonetheless.  Later we learn that Daenerys is two months pregnant, which changes the game even more significantly. From that point on, we don’t see the Khal taking her from behind anymore.  In fact, the next bedroom scene is of them two intertwined naked in bed and she reveals to him that she believes their unborn child is a boy.  Naturally, they are both elated.

Later, Viserys attacks his sister yet again because he is still under the impression that he owns her.  He hits her, but she quickly gets up and tells him that she is the queen wife of a powerful leader and that she carries his son, and pretty much tells him that if he raises his hands to her, it will be the last time he has hands.  We see her confidence growing all the while embracing her new culture by eating a heart and speaking to her people in the Dothraki language.  Clearly she is becoming more confident in her sexuality, her role as a wife, and losing her timidness.

A pivotal moment for the Khal came after Daenerys goes shopping in the marketplace with her suitors.  They come upon a man who has offered wine, but after he learns that she is the Dothraki queen, he attempts to give her poisoned wine instead.  He is captured and awaits his fate tied to a pole in a tent.  Khal Drogo enters the tent and immediately approaches his wife.  He is overcome with emotion at seeing his wife and unborn child unharmed.  Previously he told her that he didn’t see the need to conquer the Seven Kingdoms and that he didn’t need a throne to sit upon, but a horse.  But upon seeing her safe, he vowed that he would march his army so that his son may rule “where the father of his wife’s mother” ruled. 

Eye Contact

Face to face and in love

Her first step, asking Doreah how she can become a better wife and lover to the Kahl, didn’t win me over at that point.  I knew she was taking initiative, but I wasn’t fully convinced.  What won me over was when she told him that she wanted to face him during their love-making.  To me, the most important step is taking control in the bedroom.  Doreah was right: “Out there he is the mighty Khal, but in this tent he belongs to you.”  My husband has responsibilities at work and others who look to him for guidance (at work and play), but in our bedroom, I have the power over him.  I can determine whether or not he starts his day off right by the intensity of our morning intimacy time; I can decide if his last half of the day will drag or not by telling him that I want him to fuck me hard that night; I can choose how our night will end by the ferocity and method of our orgasms.  Once Daenerys realized just how much power she yielded over the most powerful man of their people, he became malleable, taking her side over his captains and second-in-command.  I came to this realization too, and it allowed me to interupt Ryan in the middle of whatever he is doing on his free time and ask him to give me the attention I deserve.  I didn’t have to suck his dick or flash my tits in my face, but my initiative and enthusiasm during our intimacy time keep him in a loving mood (and wrapped around my finger!)

The love story between Khal and Daenerys is one of my favorite in entertainment history simply because I see myself in Daenerys.  At first she is apprehensive to marry Khal Drago, even reluctant, because of her fear of the unknown.  I would even go so far as to say she thought she was better than the Dothraki, which contributed to her fear.  This apprehension, this fear, that we know about her (which is not much to go by) lets us think that she is prude, obnoxious, and will probably make an awful wife.  The worse I thought of her, the more dramatic her change became.  But the good thing is she can only get better.  Once she discovered her role as a wife, the Khal, in turn, discovered his role as a man.  The better she made him feel in bed (using her new-found confidence and sexual prowess), the more she became his.  Not as a thing of property or bartering the way Viserys treated her, but something of worth and in need of protecting.  She gave the Khal something that he never had: a wife, someone who would love him in and out of the bedroom, someone respected him out of love and not fear, and someone who was going to ensure his legacy – a child.  He became Daenerys’ personal bodyguard, someone he did not want hurt physically or emotionally.  His role as a protector became even more important because she made the decision to make her man happy in bed.

You can find hidden wisdom in everything, including the “Game of Thrones.”  As much as I love the idea of  being fucked from behind and crying as Ryan holds my head to the bed, I equally love looking deep in his eyes as he releases inside me.   As a woman, even with a show I’d consider gruesome, and slightly softcore porn (not really – inside joke), I can still find random gems to share with my readers. 

Also, we need more  of those amazing Hodor scenes.  Oscar worthy in my opinion.

Q & A: Why Does My Wife Say My Small Penis Is Large?

sex talkRay via Internet:

Hello Venice and Ryan.  I’ve never really emailed a question to a website before but yours seems interesting and I would love your opinion on a certain issue I have been dealing with.

A quick background.  I’ve been married for about 7 years and so far everything seems great.  We both have normal sex drives and usually have sex about 2-3 times a week.  As a kid in the lockerrooms, and later in college, I was always teased about my penis size.  I was on the wrestling team and the guys nicknamed me, “Light Switch.”  As you know, the singlets don’t hide much.   My wife also knows this because we started dating in college.  Although she never teased me, she knew of the nickname.  It never really seemed to bother her.

I’ve also viewed a few articles about the average penis sizes in men all over the world.   I am considerably under most of the averages, except for like Korea.  Too bad I don’t live in Korea (bad joke I know)!   I am unsure if you need my exact size, if so, just email me back.  

Either way, it’s well under average but I have never had problems getting my wife to orgasm.  Most of the time I will make her orgasm prior to intercourse with my fingers or tongue.  Lately, she has been talking dirty in the middle of sex and she started saying things like:  “Oh my god, your cock is huge!”  “You are going to tear me in half with that fucking big dick.”   “I have never seen anyone as hung as you.”

I know this sounds a little wierd but what should I do?  I am unsure if she is teasing me or I really am the biggest man she has ever had.   Why would she say these things?   Neither of us were virgins and she never lived in Korea, or dated a Korean, so I have a hard time believing I am the most hung man she has ever seen.   Your thoughts?


Venice’s thoughts:

Thank you for your question.  I particularly like this one for several reasons.  But first let me explain something – “penis average” reports are subjective in the same way pain is subjective.  My threshold of pain is higher than Ryan’s, but if we present a back problem to a doctor, we will be prescribed the same medicine, even if my pain tolerance is higher.  The standards of measurement are ..well, who KNOWS what the standards are!  For the sake of argument, the measurements of other penises worldwide are irrelevant in your situation.

I understand your frustration and the questions you must have as to how genuine your wife is in calling your cock huge.  In all reality, who cares if she honestly does or doesn’t believe your measurement is longer, wider, etc than any guy she’s been with.  I want to congratulate her personally for figuring out what many women do not do: express to her man that he has the biggest dick she’s ever had.  If I tell a chef, “This is the best tiramisu I’ve ever tasted!” I promise you he will not go home that night and question the deliciousness of the dessert.  Instead, he will relish in the fact that he has satisfied a customer to the point where he has claimed he has tasted nothing better than what he was just served.  The chef will look over his ingredients, preparation, and attempt to recreate the recipe over and over for future customers.  That is, until a food critic says otherwise.

Saying you have the biggest cock she’s ever had makes her a good lover, not a liar; it makes her an awesome wife, not a deceiver.  The more she says this, the more she will believe it and the more it will be true.  She says it to you to boost your ego, which in turn will help you to become a more confident lover.  When you’re having sex, her mind is focused on you and your body, and what you do to her.  Don’t allow your obsession with any hidden agendas on her part take away from the intimacy that you share together.  Your constant looking into the gift horse’s mouth will put thoughts in your head that put a wedge between you two.  Men WANT a woman who tell them their dicks are huge.  Be appreciative that she does it of her own accord.

Ryan’s thoughts:

 These things are always so easy to answer for me.  COMMUNICATION.  Ask her.

I guess for this blog I can write a few assumptions but that’s all they would be, assumptions.  

Does it turn you on to hear how big you are?  Maybe this makes you fuck her better?  Maybe when she mentions how big she thinks your penis is, you get extra excited and it does get bigger?  Maybe she enjoys feeling your excitement when she tells you how big you are?  Maybe it turns her on to fantasize about you being huge?  Maybe she thinks you are huge?  Maybe she is vocalizing what she thinks in her head, and wants you to hear and affirm her thoughts?  Maybe it turns her on more to know you accept you’re huge to her?  Maybe she just wants you to fuck her like you are huge and the alpha of all men?    Attitude.

Let’s say she doesn’t think your dick is huge, but during sex these thoughts pass through her mind.  Her talk is equivalent to role play.  I’ve fucked Venice from behind and pretended I was raping her.   Does that mean she was raped?  Absolutely not.  It’s just random thoughts that pop into our head to make the situation exciting and different.   Good sex is almost all mental.  If she tells herself you have the biggest cock in the world, she can put herself in that situation mentally and absolutely enjoy the idea of a being with a horse cocked man.  A lot of good women do this without their husbands ever knowing.  It’s not a mistake that most happy women feel their man’s size is perfect for them.  Women on marriage websites will brag about their husbands being huge, especially newlyweds.  The first thing these women say if things end up not working out?  “Oh my god, he was tiny.”  Does that mean she was lying?  NO.  When a woman is happy with a man, everything is better, including your dick.  When a woman is happy with you, in her mind, your dick is a redwood tree and she enjoys the idea of being your lumberjack.  When she is unhappy, your dick is a tumbleweed and she prefers nothing more than watching that little dried up shrub to roll on by.   All mental.   Guys do the same thing, whether it be about smells, how good she is in bed, etc.

The mind is a powerful thing.  I do not think women consciously come up with these evil plots to trick men, but because of love, they truly want their spouse to be the man of all men.  I’ve accepted this.  Sometimes Venice will see a large object or a giant penis and immediately whisper in my ear, “that’s small compared to you…..” and she’ll grab my crotch like she is pinching a baby’s cheeks — not reach down and barely be able to hug my mountain of a crotch because it”s so huge she can’t get her arms around it.  However, she is not joking, she absolutely means it.  It’s not true, but she means it.  Her intentions aren’t mean, aren’t evil, aren’t trickery, it’s what she feels.  She is proud of her husband regardless of his dick size, and to let him know, she communicates this with him.  That’s what good women do.   As a good man, don’t question it.  Give her exactly what she wants, a huge cock.  Fuck her like your dick is the biggest thing on earth, attitude is everything.
