George weighs in on in the Jamie and Cersie sex scene in “Breaker of Chains.”
I thought that scene was hot but I’ve read the books, have been dying for a Jamie/Cersie sex scene, and I’m into kinky shit. I think the director should have made it more clear what he was intending which was:
(*) When I interviewed Alex Graves about “The Lion and the Rose,” we also spoke briefly about the Jaime/Cersei scene and about how the encounter starts out as Jaime forcing himself on her, then turns into something else. This is what he said:
"Well, it becomes consensual by the end, because anything for them ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle. Nobody really wanted to talk about what was going on between the two characters, so we had a rehearsal that was a blocking rehearsal. And it was very much about the earlier part with Charles (Dance) and the gentle verbal kidnapping of Cersei’s last living son. Nikolaj came in and we just went through one physical progression and digression of what they went through, but also how to do it with only one hand, because it was Nikolaj. By the time you do that and you walk through it, the actors feel comfortable going home to think about it. The only other thing I did was that ordinarily, you rehearse the night before, and I wanted to rehearse that scene four days before, so that we could think about everything. And it worked out really well. That’s one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever done."

I interpreted it that way but it seems a lot of bloggers saw it as rape. It WAS rapey but still hot. Jamie can force himself on me against a corpse any time.
