I'll tell you this: I'd rather read the weird sex stuff in the Dune books than the seemingly endless parade of rapes in the Song of Ice and Fire series.
I got about half way into the first book (Game of Thrones) before I put it down and never looked at the series again. Pretty much every character was super annoying and usually a horrible person, it was seriously the most irritating fantasy book I've tried to read. I've never seen the TV show, but I'm guessing its similar. I have no idea why that book/TV series is so popular.

You sir are cheating yourself out of the best part of Game of Thrones. That is to have many of those annoying characters suffer and die in some rather nasty and creative ways.

Seriously though, my only real problem with GoT is the same problem I have with a number of other literary fantasy sagas, particularly the Wheel of Time books. In that it's clear the author has no idea where he's going with it, or is just intent on spinning the story out for as long as it's profitable.
