[Tim Wilson] "I'm always up for discussing why violence is so much more permissible than sex in American entertainment"

From an interview earlier this week with George R.R. Martin on the sex vs. violence in Game of Thrones:

"I can describe an axe entering a human skull in great explicit detail and no one will blink twice at it. I provide a similar description, just as detailed, of a penis entering a vagina, and I get letters about it and people swearing off. To my mind this is kind of frustrating, it’s madness. Ultimately, in the history of [the] world, penises entering vaginas have given a lot of people a lot of pleasure. Axes entering skulls, well, not so much."
