Given the fact that the 22-year-old actress has grown up on screen, Joe Dempsie (Gendry) said that he also found the sex scene a odd one to film, especially since he has known Williams for quite some time.

Another said: "It's nearly like her character arc is complete".

"I'm acting alongside a child here". "She's having probably the least weird, and most empowering consensual interaction in the whole show".

This double standard is everywhere in our society.

"Teen girls have sex". Condoms are relatively easy to get, but when feminists tried to remove age restrictions on female-controlled contraception such as Plan B, they met widespread political resistance.

Get push notifications with news, features and more. Take former Vice President Joe Biden, for instance, suggesting a young man had a duty to "to keep the guys away from your sister". She knows that King Robert was her own beloved father's best friend.

Some Game of Thrones fans are incredibly disappointed after the big sex scene in the show's most recent episode - and they're convinced one of the participants was disappointed, too. I have no quarrel with the scene, which was mostly set up for a joke about how the bumbling teenager is a secret sexual savant.

This weekend saw the second episode from season eight of Game of Thrones.

Spy chiefs called for help over Mueller investigation
"More context-rivals in 08 for sure [they were rivals] but in 2012 I campaigned across U.S. for him, spoke for him at RNC". Believing he could exonerate himself, Trump initially expressed a willingness to sit for an interview with Mueller's team.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Williams spoke about the scene, saying, "In the beginning, everyone was really respectful". Who knew a sex scene could divide the nation so much? Year after year, Arya has been laser-focused on survival and training and revenge. While it wasn't a prank, the amount of skin she would be showing off was totally up to her.

What's next for Arya and Gendry?

The ironic thing about Arya Stark's first time isn't just that she is one of the luckiest women in Westeros - able to not only consent to her first time, but initiate it - but that in consummating her romance with Gendry, she is fulfilling one of the Stark sisters' dreams.

The scene should be celebrated for its feminism.

It is perfectly normal for an eighteen-year-old to want to have sex the night before she inevitably dies at the hand of some Whitewalker. Time has warped Sansa as much as has Arya.

If you're still in shock, maybe you should remember that when Danaerys and Khal Drogo got together in season one, the character was 16 years old, actually three years older than in the book. But Arya isn't innocent.

On Twitter, a vocal contingent of fans are insisting that Arya is a lesbian and are upset that Game of Thrones writers aren't acknowledging it.
