Just like you, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner found out about oral sex from HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. Of course, Turner has the excuse of being a teenager when she was cast as the series’ Sansa Stark, where as you … well, you’re just the kind of person who loves Game of Thrones. In a new interview with the Sunday Times, Turner recalls finding out about a particular aspect of human sexuality for the first time during a table read with her fellow cast members. “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,” she explained. “I was like … ‘Wow! People do that? That’s fascinating!’ I guess that was my sex education. Being on Game of Thrones.” It’s an important reminder to the world’s parents: If you don’t talk to your kids about sex, they’re just going to learn about it from their dumb friends or the internet or, god forbid, one Mr. George R.R. Martin.
