Smith recently commented in a Perekotifield interview that he would like to see a little less sex, which made both Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon one of the best franchises on HBO. “You’re really asking, ‘Do we need another sex scene? And they say, “Yes, I do,” Smith said. “I think you have to ask yourself, ‘What are you doing? Are you representing the books, or are you watering down the books to represent the time?’ And I really think it’s your job to represent the books truthfully and honestly as they were written.”

The Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon the novels are notorious for their explicit content, including disturbing scenes of rape and incest. Perhaps they are responsible for longer and more intense sex scenes House of the Dragon, where Smith’s character Demon is usually in the middle. These include some awkward scenes with his teenage niece Rhaenyra in a brothel, and equally awkward scenes when they finally get married later in Season 1.

Smith joins another actor who recently called for less sex on the hit series. you star Penn Badgley talked about the return of sex in season 4 of his Netflix series you out of respect for his real wife and the feeling that the show doesn’t need so many candid scenes to continue a show focused on stalking and murder.

Considering the amount of suggestive material in House of the Dragon books, it remains to be seen whether HBO will take Smith’s offer to heart, given that the franchise has earned a reputation for some of the most outspoken and problematic depictions of erotica in action today. Game of Thrones Star Emilia Clarke, whose sex scenes in season 1 include a graphic rape of her teenage character, previously spoke about her discomfort with the amount of nudity she endured throughout the show. While the producers went to the premiere promising less free sex in House of the Dragon than its predecessor, candid scenes were still everywhere.
