PVV/review – Lannister love …ok for mainstream, but not for porn? (WoodRocket’s Game of Bones)

This is so interesting… except that it’s not – it’s neither interesting nor surprising. In fact, it’s actually kinda par for the course.

WoodRocket.com *JUST* (October 25, 2013) began airing episodes of their newest endeavor – a parody of HBO’s Game of Thrones (which was inspired by George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series) called Game of Bones: Winter is Cumming.

Game of Bones includes renditions of many Game of Thrones staples: dragons, thrones, weddings, Tyrion, Ygritte, Varys, and more. However, at least throughout the course of the first five episodes, one major thing is missing from Game of Bones…

Incest.

Yes. (or no, I guess)

The romantic-sexual-sibling relationship between twins Cersei and Jamie Lannister – a sub-plot that factors so prominently in propelling both Martin’s and HBO’s renditions of the epic – is NOT explored in the porn parody. (well, at least not explored overtly and explicitly as it is in the books and on HBO – there’re definitely some jokes, though)

According to director Lee Roy Myers:

[T]he whole Cersei & Jaime Lannister, brother and sister sexual relationship is taboo. At WoodRocket, we typically try and avoid incest as a running theme in porn. (here)

But… but… WHY?? Why is it ok for more mainstream media to engage notions of incest but it’s not ok for porn?

(I know why)

George R.R. Martin himself commented on the double-standard:

There is an incestuous relationship at the heart of Game of Thrones, and you find out about it pretty early in the first book… But in the porn version that they’re doing, they’ve omitted the incest because that would just be too shocking. So my books are actually dirtier than the porn version! (here)

“Dirtier” indeed.

The relationship between Cersei and Jamie Lannister is fascinating and compelling to a wide range of people – just Google “Cersei and Jamie Lannister” and see what you get.

For example:

(pictured: also, too hot for porn!!)

And there are so many more…

In terms of content and concept, WoodRocket’s Game of Bones is just fantastic – the MILF of Dragons, the *actual* dragons (holy christ, how funny), the sexual naiveté of King Robb Stark (do we want our leaders that inexperienced?), the masturbating white walker, the lethal bukkake wedding, and everything Joffrey. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, tongue-in-cheek smart, and super sexy well done.

But it’s not surprising that the folks at WoodRocket chose to self-censor the incest – what’s a hallmark in paperback may be an invitation for trouble in porn. I would’ve done the exact same thing.

Check out the trailer for Game of Bones below… heck, you should just go watch the entire series on WoodRocket.com here!!
