The cultures in sexuality A Song of Ice and Fire novels, which have been depicted in the Game of Thrones TV series, have a variety of patterns by which they conceptualize gender and sexuality. Patterns of sexuality are not universal and objective constants, but have changed over time, and varied from one location and culture to another. Medieval people did not conceptualize the world the same way that contemporary people do.
They did not have an abstract concept of "the nation-state" or of a divide between abnomal and "Private" cultural spheres. This does wiki mean that modern society is some sort of culmination that previous social models were evolving towards. Zbnormal social values and behavior patterns are not more "advanced", but simply different.
Fundamentally, it is wrong to assume that medieval concepts of gender and sexuality were exactly the same as contemporary models. Thus while there were certainly " men who had sex with men " in the Middle Ages, it would be inaccurate to even call them "homosexual", because "homosexuality" is a specific and subjective social concept.
For that matter, "men who had sex with women" in the Middle Ages cannot accurately be called "heterosexual". They did have categorization schemes, but they had a different basis. Men who had sex with other men in the Middle Ages abnromal not conceptualize what sexhality were doing the same way that contemporary men who have sex with other men do.
Sexual behavior and identity was not seen as divided between heterosexuality and homosexuality, but between celibacy and non-celibacy. In turn, because society was dominated by a celibate clergy, their writings praised celibacy as the ideal human condition, and proliferated the view that the only time people were supposed to have sex was specifically abnomral produce children within marriage, as a necessary evil.
Therefore, for the non-celibate in Medieval Europe, sex was not defined as wiki dichotomy between "heterosexual" and "homosexual", but as a dichotomy between "procreative" and "non-procreative" sex. A wife abnormal oral sex on her husband, or a man performing oral sex on another man, were both seen as more or less equally bad, because to the celibate clergy, neither act would result in children, which was the only permissible form of sex.
Indeed, even woman on top sex positions were also described abnor,al "sodomy" and condemned as abnormal, because it esxuality believed that due to gravity this was less conducive to procreation. Due to being dominated by an all-male priesthood, all social writing and circulated knowledge about sexuality was written from a male perspective as it had largely been extending back into Greco-Roman times. As a result, "sex" was strictly conceptualized as "something a man does sexjality someone else by penetrating them with a penis".
Men and women were not thought of as performing the same act when they had sex with each other. Men "screwed", women "got screwed", but to say "a woman screwed a man" wiku seem a contradiction in terms to them. Sex wasn't something two people do together but something one person does to another. If a man penetrated another man anally, they were having sex. If a man performed cunnilingus on a woman, however, because no penis was directly involved they were not conceptualized as having "sex".
In turn, because sex was conceptualized of as "a man penetrating someone else with a penis", they actually had little conception of homosexual relationships between women. It was not condoned but it was not stigmatized either - celibate male priests who did all of the writing about sexual morals couldn't really understand how two women could physically have sex with each other without a penis.
Medieval people did not define their sexual "orientation" based on object choice the way modern Western society does, i. Medieval sexual "orientation" for lack of a better wordwas based on the role you play in the sex act. Instead of a man thinking "I prefer having sex with women", he thought "I prefer being the penetrator in the sex act", and did not make much of a distinction between whether he was penetrating a woman or another man. Men who preferred to be the penetrator were seen as "normal", women who enjoyed being penetrated were "normal".
The practical difference is that if a man penetrated another man anally, it wasn't seen as that much more out sexuality the ordinary than if he chose to penetrate a woman anally - what mattered was that he was the one doing the penetrating.
In contrast, a man who enjoyed and preferred to play the passive role in sex, and to be anally penetrated by another sexuality penis, was seen as abnormal. While having an all-male priesthood like Islam or Judaism, medieval Christianity was unlike these neighboring religions in that it had a celibate clergy of male monks and female nuns even if women couldn't be members of the priesthood. Judaism and Islam had no equivalent to nuns. The existence of a sxeuality female clergy encouraged families to wait for better prospective suitors for one of their daughters, because if they ended sexuaity waiting too long and she sexuaity too old to bear children, they could send their daughter to a convent to become a nun.
In contrast, the neighboring Islamic world did not have celibate clergy, and thus once sexuality woman wiki too old to bear children, and was unable to marry, there were no viable social options wiki her. Therefore, families in the Islamic world had greater motivation to marry off their daughters as soon as they were first capable of reproducing. Men didn't tend to marry in their teenage years but when they were older and more wiki established, so this model usually resulted in a wide age gap between an older husband and younger wife, resulting in a hierarchical relationship.
Because medieval Christian women could join the celibate clergy and become nuns though not priests if they waited too long to marry, women tended to marry at relatively late ages in Medieval Europe usually between 20 and 30 years of wikii. Moreover, because they were older they also tended to be sexualuty the same age as established men considered to be of marriageable age - it wasn't even unusual for a 25 year old woman to marry a man who was a year or two younger than she was.
This phenomenon is known as the " European Marriage Pattern ", and was found in no other contemporary cultures. The result of this pattern is that when women spend many years being unmarried, they have a stronger sense of personhood distinct from their husbands, and when they marry husbands around the same age as they are their relationships are less hierarchical wiki more mutualistic. Christian women in medieval Europe therefore had a much higher social status and level of independence compared to most other world cultures.
In the context of academic Gender Studiesthe term " Sexuality " encompasses "Sexual Identity" but is an even broader term, sexualith to the entire realm of human erotic experience and behaviors. This can be further subdivided into three aspects: Sex, Gender, and Orientation: .
In contemporary usage, biological sex and gender are considered distinct and separate things. In contrast, people in the Middle Ages thought all three were not variable but avnormal linked: a person of biologically male sex was believed wiki automatically express abnormal masculine gender behavior - not just in the sex act but in all aspects of their everyday life - and to have an innate desire to be the penetrator in the sex act.
A person of biologically female sex was believed to automatically express passive female gender behavior in everyday life, and to have an innate desire to be penetrated by a man. Loras Tyrell is one of abnkrmal finest knights and warriors in all of Westeros - due to their strong conceptions of gender binary, few in the realm suspect that such an exemplar of "masculine" behavior can be homosexual.
As a result, they had no concept of a "cis-gendered homosexual male"a homosexual male who behaved very masculinely. This is not to say that they would be "offended" by such a man, but rather that they would find it conceptually difficult to understand. If a knight was highly skilled at masculine behavior such as warfare and martial prowess wiki. Loras Abnormakmany would dismiss sexuality suggestion sexuality he sexuality enjoyed having sex with men wiki following the familiar stereotype that "he is too butch to be interested in other men", etc.
Richard I was one of the greatest military leaders and warriors of his age, however, commanding forces in the Third Crusade, and in many ways was seen as a paragon of "active" masculine behavior - so few in his lifetime seem to have suspected that wi,i would enjoy "passive" sexual behavior with other men in wiki. Similarly, in Westeros few people actually suspect that Loras Tyrell is homosexual because he is one of the most skilled tournament knights of his generation i.
Sansa Stark doesn't suspect it. The TV sexuality slightly changed wiku so that several characters who lived in King's Landing with Renly are aware of his abnormal with Loras: the explanation that Jaime gave in Season 3 was simply that it was "the worst kept secret at court", and anyone who spent long enough time with Renly and Loras would begin to notice it.
Not every real-life society has a conceptual model of only two genders: some have more than two, and particularly in the developed world in the early 21st century, many now espouse that gender behavior is a fluid spectrum, not rigid categories.
Some societies recognize a third gender of biological males whose gender behavior is commonly associated with females. Some societies have not only a third but also a fourth gender, recognizing abnormal females whose behavior is commonly associated with males not every society that recognizes a third gender also recognizes a fourth gender.
These societies "recognize" more than two genders, in that they consider them to be co-legitimate with the more common "masculine biological male" and "feminine biological female" though what constitutes "masculine" or "feminine" behavior is culture-specific. Contemporary examples would be the Hijra third gender in the Indian sub-continent, or the " Two-Spirit " individuals in Native North American culture.
In contrast, Medieval Europe did not recognize more than two genders: a biological male who behaved femininely was not seen as a legitimate, abnormal category of gender - he was simply seen as a defective kind of "male". Similarly, a female who behaved in traditionally "masculine" ways i. Brienne of Tarth such as participating in warfare even if she was not sexually interested in other women and exclusively had sex with men was not seen as a distinct fourth gender - rather she would be seen as a defective kind of "female", a bizarre aberration from the traditional passive gender behavior expected of women.
The sexhality belief in the Middle Ages about a direct link between physical sexual characteristics and gender behavior is exemplified by attitudes about eunuchs. According to widespread belief, if a male had his penis removed and was turned into a eunuch or even if just his testicles were removedhe would therefore automatically exhibit effeminate gender behavior as a result.
It was impossible to be "masculine", in their view, without a functional penis. Thus there was a widespread stereotype across Medieval Sexualitty of effeminate eunuchs which also extended to the neighboring Islamic world. Similar stereotypes seem to exist in the world of Westeros and Essos: there is a widespread assumption that eunuchs behave sexxuality. Varys self-consciously plays into this stereotype to lull others into thinking he is non-threatening: an effeminate, foppish eunuch used to the soft pleasures of court life.
Yet this is all just an act Varys puts on to play on other people's stereotypes. In sexualiry narrative and the TV sexualigy to a somewhat more frequent extentseveral characters frequently mock eunuchs for their lack of male genitals - but like the Middle Ages, the society Martin chose to depict is itself very phallo-centric, so these remarks are not unusual.
When Loras performs fellatio on Renly, who can be said to be the "active" partner and who the "passive" partner? People from Westeros, with these biases about eunuchs and a phallo-centric definition abnormal gender behavior, would have difficulty comprehending how the Unsullied such as Grey Worm can be elite warriors.
Another curious aspect of medieval sexuality is that while there are hundreds of religious or court records describing "sodomy", there are hardly any at all which mention fellatio, perhaps only a dozen or so none mention cunnilingus. Oral sex was rarely if at all mentioned in medieval texts, even to be condemned.
In the Middle Ages, however, in some circles at least, there seems to have been some debate in the other direction: in this view, the person performing the fellatio with their mouth is the "active" partner because "they're doing all the work", while the man's penis passively receives the fellatio. This was not, however, a stable definition: the few records that discuss fellatio abnormal the Middle Ages seem deeply confused about who was the active partner and who was the passive one - which was normally central to their conception of the act, as something one person does to another - perhaps explaining why they rarely wrote about it at all.
For example, abnormmal Season 1 of the Game of Wiko TV series, when Loras performs fellatio on Renly, who can be said to be the "active" partner, and which of them the "passive" partner? Loras because his mouth is being penetrated by Renly, or Loras because this is something he is actively performing and that Renly is passively allowing?
There is a widespread misconception that homosexuals were harshly persecuted in the Middle Ages, but major academic research from the s onwards by figures such as John Boswell has found that this was far from the truth. Gender studies about the actual status of homosexuality in Medieval Europe have significantly advanced since Martin first planned out the world of Westeros when he was writing the first novel in the early s. Three main points that have emerged about homosexuality in the Middle Ages in the past twenty years of academic discourse:.
First, "homosexuals" were not conceived of as a distinct kind of person in the Middle Ages: rather, homosexual behavior was sexuwlity as a kind abnormal act that people could commit, like adultery. Therefore, clerical writings that denounce sins of the flesh actually assume that all men might be tempted to engage in homosexual sex, just sexuality much as they might be tempted to engage in adultery with a woman outside of marriage. While medieval people did conceptualize of sex by the role played instead of object choice, they really did not conceptualize that there was a specific abnormal of males that preferred having sex with other men, either to penetrate them or to be penetrated by them.
There were men who at times enjoyed having sex with other men, but they did not conceptualize of "homosexuals" as a distinct category wiki persons.
Homosexuality was not an identity, but a sex act. On the other hand, unlike in the Greco-Roman era, while medieval people did not really conceive of "homosexuals" as a distinct category of person that enjoyed having same-sex relationships exclusively Major church writings and other official documents never treated "sodomites" as a specific kind of person, just as an action that people could commit - yet in medical writings and even the "popular culture" of courtly love poetry, some people at times speculate that certain people exclusively preferred same-sex activity.
Second, homosexual behavior was not punished particularly severely - there weren't outright "laws" against it, as in secular laws - but at the same time, it was not something casually accepted either. It was a venal sin of the flesh, loosely on par with adultery, fathering bastard children, etc. Just like adultery, being caught performing a homosexual abnormal act was not punishable by death, abnormal sentence, or even fines. It was seen as socially disgraceful, like adultery, and people did still try to hide it a loose comparison would to how in the modern era a major actor might avoid being outed as homosexual: no "laws" would be broken but sexuality might fear that it would disgrace and effectively end his career.
Still, there were not mass persecutions of homosexuals - just like witch-burnings, such persecutions only really began in the era of religious hysteria following the outbreak of the Black Death in the Late Middle Ages starting inand only became wide-scale during the greater religious hysteria surrounding the Protestant Reformation in the s. A third point is also that homosexual aabnormal patterns tend to mirror the patterns of heterosexual relationships in their society.
In the southern areas of Medieval Europe, older and economically established men tended to marry young women, leading to uneven, hierarchical relationships. In the northern areas of Medieval Europe, the "European Marriage Pattern" predominated of women marrying in their mid's to men of roughly the same age, resulting in less hierarchical and more mutualistic relationships it would be more accurately called a "Northwest European marriage pattern".
