[quote quote=6745]I’m having trouble articulating my thoughts on this, but I’ll just throw in to your portrayal of sex the use of sex as a bargaining tool (but could also be considered as a means of exerting power at the other end of it)…DIA SPOILER ahead..

I’m thinking specifically about Claire and King Louis…it’s used to achieve an end for Claire, but is also a means of exerting power at King Louis’s end of it.

That’s a really good one. There is also the non-sexual but also sexual in a way, healing of Claire by Raymond. I’m not sure where that fits in exactly.
