In season 7, Game of Thrones departed from past seasons in a dramatic way

This season there were no scenes of graphic sexual violence, and there wasn’t a single scene that involved being in a brothel that or using women in prostitution. This is a significant change! This season even had the highest audience yet for the show, which underscores the fact that a show does not need graphic rape scenes in order to get viewers.

However, another disturbing trend continued in this season…the trend of eroticized incest.

Lisa Thompson shares about this trend on Game of Thrones in the video below.
