Sophie Turner Reveals How ‘Game of Thrones’ Taught Her About Oral Sex
“Wow! People do that? That’s fascinating!”
Looks like Game of Thrones is educational after all.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones and was 15 when she was cast in the pivotal role, learned about sex by reading scripts of the wildly popular fantasy show.
“I’d be doing a read-through and we’d be talking about very graphic stuff. The first time I ever found out about oral sex was from reading the script,” Turner told The Sunday Times.

“I was like … ‘Wow! People do that? That’s fascinating!’ I guess that was my sex education. Being on Game of Thrones.”
Given the racy nature of the show, Turner is likely now a seasoned sex pro by now—on girl-on-girl, incest, threesomes… you name it.

Regrettably, Turner is also versed in the darker aspects of sexuality. Her character, Sansa Stark, was sexually assaulted in Season 5—a plot point criticized by some.
“The more we talk about sexual assault the better, and screw the people who are saying we shouldn’t be putting this on TV and screw the people who are saying they’re going to boycott the show because of it,” Turner said in defense of the controversial scene.
“This sort of thing used to happen and it continues to happen now, and if we treat it as such a taboo and precious subject, then how are people going to have the strength to come out and feel comfortable saying that this has happened to them?”
Tune into the G.O.T. premiere on July 16 to see what Season 7 has in store.
