There is plenty of bloody, ruthless violence in George RR Martin's novels, and lots and lots of sex — but why is there more explicit gay and bisexual sex on display in the Game of Thrones TV adaptation than in his books? The question was asked as Martin addressed an audience at the Edinburgh international book festival on Monday night — why do his A Song of Ice and Fire novels only hint at the subject?
