“Game of Thrones” Actor Pining for More Gay Sex

theonWith Game of Thrones galloping towards its season premiere in April, HBO’s mighty marketing juggernaut is churning into full gear. The latest tidbit to come across our desk: Finn Jones, who plays Loras Tyrell, laments the lack of gay sex for his character.

“There’s not enough hot gay sex for Loras this season. I’m afraid there’s just not enough,” Finn told a blogger at a recent party. Well, boo-urns.

That means that if you’re looking to stem the rose with the Knight of Flowers, you’ll have to turn to fan fiction. Here’s a Tumblr that recalls Loras and Renly in happier days, and you’ll be happy to learn that there is a vast archive of fan-authored erotica on the internet, which is why it was invented in the first place.

Jones did hint that he has a flirtation with a new character this season, and we are brimming with curiosity. Could it be a steamy Dornish affair? Surely not Oberyn. One of the minor Lannisters? That would be particularly delicious, considering Tywin’s distaste. Or perhaps he slides into bed with Nute Gunray? Wait, hold on, we’re mixing our fandoms now.

Whatever the case, we can’t felt feeling a bit let-down that HBO won’t be treating us to more cock this season. What’s Gendry been up to? And hey, maybe now would be a good time for Theon to take up bottoming?

    Oh, please, can we stop getting sucked in by Hollywood’s lies? Hollywood is NOT comfortable with male-male sexuality. It’s a homophobic place full of homophobic homosexuals.

    @jimbryant: People often accuse you of much the same, and yet here you are.

  • Stache1

    Well, we know the above character sure ain’t gonna be a top in any gay scenes.

  • greyhound1954

    Wait a minute. I’ve read the books and Loras Tyrell is not gay, just incredibly attractive. I don’t have cable, so I haven’t seen the show.

  • Daveliam

    It’s hinted in the books that Loras and Renly are intimate, but it’s never explicitly stated. On the show, it’s made clear and there’s even a few love scenes. Nothing really racy.

  • viciouslies

    You did NOT just post a picture of Theon in a post all about Loras just so you could make some lame castration joke at the end, did you? OH, YA DID!

  • jimbryant

    BrianZ,

    You are confusing my criticism of certain types of behaviour with homophobia. I can understand why you might do this. Homophobia is a poorly defined term that is used loosely to mean any criticism of anything to do with homosexuality, including poor behavior.

    I don’t see why poor behavior associated with homosexuality should be protected.

  • renly

    @greyhound1954: In the books it’s heavily implied, and in interviews the author has confirmed it.

  • balehead

    This proves awareness isn’t an action….Lamenting the lack of gays in the show isn’t an forward statement…just more press for the show…

  • Kamuriie

    @jimbryant: What does Hollywood have to do with this? This show is filmed almost exclusively outside the US.

    @greyhound1954:
    I agree with @renly, it is heavily implied. I’m reading A Feast of Crows right now, and i just finished a chapter earlier in the week where Tommen wants Loras to train him, Cerci goes crazy, partly because she’s paranoid of the Tyrells, but also she’s worried about the bond a squire and knight have. She gets mad and says Loras is not the kind man she wants around her son to emulate. Jamie responds something like “He may not care about your tits, but he’s the best lancer.”

    Also the castration joke was lame. Better to have a picture of Finn Jones than a tortured Alfie Allen.

  • Niall

    At least use the right fucking picture. Gawd. The above is Alfie Allen who plays Theon on the show NOT Finn Jones who plays Loras.

  • greyhound1954

    @stranded: Thanks to @renly and @stranded. For some reason, I didn’t catch the gay vibe between Loras and Renly. But if the author confirmed it, it must be true. (And that makes me wonder, why didn’t he put in a real gay relationship, instead of this subtle stuff; it didn’t necessarily have to be between Loras and Renly, since there’re dozens of characters in the books.) There’s a lot going on in the books, and I guess I was just more concerned about Jon Snow and Bran and Arya.

  • renly

    I’m all caught up on the books, and without giving too much away I can say there are couple new lgbt characters that we have yet to see. It’s more of the implied/unrequited love trope, but for any queer characters to be in a fantasy series like this one should be seen as progress, where the main audience is straight white adolescent men.

  • DistingueTraces

    The way they’ve played Loras on the show is really irritating. Great that they made the romance explicit, but the then removed the main thing Loras does in the books — his murderous frenzy after Renly is killed — and turned the character into a stereotypical useless fop.

    The man’s supposed to be a crazed killer, for crying out loud!

  • Niall

    @renly: I don’t think it’s progress when it’s not expressly mentioned or even implied in a way that you don’t have to look hard for. A lot of the upcoming characters were people you literally had to read between the lines to find.
