    Really? Because around the water cooler at my work all the women who were die-hard fans of GoT only talked about the newest relationship twists. And most of the guys I know liked watching with their significant other because of the... effect... the show had on them.

    Then of course there are all of the various articles that capitalized on this.

    Saying that the illicit relationships isn't ONE (not the only) strong selling points of GoT is like saying readers made Gabaldon's "Outlander" series a hit because they liked the historical elements more than the romance.

    Point being, that if Hickman increases this aspect of the soap-opera elements to DoX, I would be willing to bet a six pack of really good beer (the Krakoan kind) that it would help, not hinder, sales.

    Relationships twists doesn't mean sex.

    I had friends who watched, all of them for the plot. Sex and nakes women were a plus.

    it would hinder the sales, because majority of shippers would just jump ship and OOC chaarcterization will also be glaring.
    This poliamor is just the same new52.

    I shocked that people are in denial that sex sells when it comes to Game of Thrones of all things. I'm pretty sure that's, like, the most well known attribute about Game of Thrones.

    I'd say it was about 30% sex, 30% character investment back when the show actually wanted you to get invested in them, 20% fans of the books, and rest was bored people watching what their friends said was amazing.

    A lot of people watched so they could talk with their friends.

    For some reason people who talked about the tv show with me or around me were more interested on battles and chracters development.

    Sex is very free on internet and in much better quality.

    If sex sells why kids comics outsell the regular big two and Image by a lot?

    And if poliamory is all about sex, that already is a big reason to not have it

    any tv show cable has sex, but no one else made success like GOT

    Because porn has no plot (unless you're watching hentai). Something titillating means a lot more when you have actual investment in the people playing pelvic pinochle.

    Well there is movies (not porn) with real sex, also some porn have plot (even if dumb). Anyway people spend time seeing it, even get addicted, plot doesn't look that important. All free, even if not legal.PSA: Don't pirate, buy stuff

    I never heard it described this way. At first I thought you typed "pelvic pinocchio", lol. Either way, good point to make in terms of investment.

    It's neck and neck. I have a hard time imagining anybody knowing about one without the other.

    The deaths, the plot twist and the characters make asoiaf interesting. Sex was just there, I can't even remember sex scenes, they contributed so little to the plot.

    Some porn has plot that is more legit. You'll see it more with certain companies that specialize in erotica, soap drama, and actual relationships.

    Same. When I think back to what stands out as the most memorable moments and its definitely the death scenes. Sex scenes, far less so.
