The Ultimate Ranking of 'Game of Thrones' Sex Scenes

Rated on a scale of dracarys. 🔥


Even though it's over, if there's one thing Game of Thrones remains notorious for—aside from that ending—it's the sex scenes that littered the series. From season one, episode one, GoT was a show that wasn't afraid to show plenty of sex scenes, from young hotties Daenerys and Jon Snow to the incestuous pairing that were Cersei and Jamie. There was plenty of death in Game of Thrones, including many of the people above—it's been over for a while, guys, I'm not going to apologize for the spoiler—but, dare I say it, there were even more sex scenes.

Some of the scenes were kind of gross, but many of them were flaming hot, which is why we've utilized a fire emoji (🔥)-based system to rank the best Game of Thrones sex scenes.

19. Sam and Gilly

Do not @ me. This might not be the *hottest* sex scene ever, but we challenge you to find a sweeter moment of intimacy in all of Game of Thrones.

Dracarys level: 🔥

18. Gendry and Melisandre

Did Melisandre ultimately seduce Gendry with the goal of surprising him by bringing leeches into the bedroom to suck out some of his blood for some ritual? Yes. Was it hot in a BDSM-y way? Yes.

Dracarys level: 🔥

17. Daenerys and Jon Snow

Look, we know this scene was 50 shades of disgusting. But it makes the list because there has been so much hype surrounding Jon and Dany's relationship, *and* because Jon Snow's butt went viral, *and* because it single-handedly convinced most of the internet that incest between aunts and nephews is just fine. Help! What is life!

Dracarys level: 🔥

16. Theon and Yara

You would think Theon would know when and how to keep it in his pants, but it seems that day will never come. The idea of hooking up on a horse is what makes this scene so steamy, just not the part about finding out it was with his sister.

Dracarys level: 🔥

15. Arya and Gendry

It's the night before the Battle of Winterfell, and Arya wants to get down for the first time before she could potentially die as she faces the White Walkers. Was it the most comfortable scene to watch? Not necessarily, but Arya and Gendry were reunited after many years of separation, and that is worth celebrating.

Dracarys level: 🔥🔥

14. Cersei and Jaime

We're including Cersei and Jaime's debut incestual sex scene on this list because it's completely insane, broke a million taboos, and—to be honest—was kinda steamy. Let's just forget about the fact that they're siblings, mmmkay?

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥

13. Tyrion and Ros

This one isn't the steamiest in GOT history by a long shot, but Tyrion getting it on with Ros at a Winterfell brothel in season one was probably the most perfect introduction we could have had to both characters.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥

12. Stannis and Melisandre

Game of Thrones definitely knows how to make a weird sex scene weirdly hot and Stannis and Melisandre hooking up on a battle map to make a smoke monster baby definitely qualifies—on both counts.

Dracarys level: 🔥🔥🔥

11. Myranda and Ramsay

So, two wrong things (people in this case) shouldn't make a right, but the lip biting, to the point of bleeding, in this scene is superb. It's such an intense amount of passion from two equally crazy people.

Dracarys level: 🔥🔥🔥

10. Daenerys and Her Handmaid

Before seeking out mutual respect in her sexual relationship with Khal Drogo, Daenerys got lessons in lovemaking (sorry) from one of her handmaids, who taught her to make eye contact and encouraged her to be on top. To quote: "You will make him like it, Khaleesi. Men want what they've never had."

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥

9. Pod and an entire brothel

Pod is one of the least assuming characters in all of Westeros, so it was beyond perfect when Tyrion hired an entire brothel of ladies to take his virginity and—twist alert—it turned out that Pod was such an incredible and natural lover that the prostitutes insisted on giving him the money back.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥

8. Daenerys and Daario

Daenerys took a long time to get over the death of Khal Drogo, but once she did, it was insanely hot.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

7. Tyrion and Shae

Nothing says "anything goes" like "I'm 99 percent sure I'm going to die in battle tomorrow" sex. And that's the kind of sex Tyrion and his one-time true love Shae have the first night they meet. Hawt.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

6. Missandei and Grey Worm

This scene was A) a long time coming, and B) featured oral sex on a woman—which just doesn't get as much screen time as it deserves on TV. But the great thing about the moment is it wasn't just built out of lust and sexual tension. These two have been hopelessly smitten forever, and to see them so vulnerable was extremely sweet.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

5. Loras and Renly

While Game of Thrones doesn't have nearly as much male nudity as it does female, they've featured several gay sex scenes—like this oral sex scene between Loras and Renly.

Dracarys level:🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

4. Robb and Talisa

This scene makes the list because—like Jon and Ygritte—there was *so much* sexual tension leading up to it. But the best part? How Talisa had to undo all the fancy laces on Robb's leather vest. Tragically, it's impossible to watch without crying due to Wed Redding related trauma, so have fun with that.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

3. Oberyn, Ellaria, Olyvar, and two unnamed women

Sorry, Pod, but this is Westeros' hottest orgy to date. The Dornishmen (and women) really know how to bring the fire emojis.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥🔥 🔥

2. Jon and Ygritte

Hello and welcome to the best sex scene of all time, the moment in which Jon Snow proved he does, in fact, know some stuff—that stuff being how to perform oral sex on a woman in a dimly lit cave.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

1. Daenerys and Khal Drogo

This is the scene where Daenerys takes control of her sexual relationship with her husband Khal Drogo (they've previously only ever had sex from behind), and tells him "tonight I would look upon your face." They proceed to form an intimate connection that changes the tenor of their relationship.

Dracarys level: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
