read these passages from book and decide for yourself

Dany

He stopped then, and drew her down onto his lap. Dany was flushed and breathless, her heart fluttering in her chest. He cupped her face in his huge hands and looked into his eyes. “No?” he said, and she knew it was a question.
She took his hand and moved it down to the wetness between her thighs. “Yes,” she whispered as she put his finger inside her

Cersei

“The Others can take the septons.” He kissed her again, kissed her silent, kissed her until she moaned. Then he knocked the candles aside and lifted her up onto the Mother’s altar, pushing up her skirts and the silken shift beneath. She pounded on his chest with feeble fists, murmuring about the risk, the danger, about their father, about the septons, about the wrath of gods. He never heard her. He undid his breeches and climbed up and pushed her bare white legs apart. One hand slid up her thigh and underneath her smallclothes. When he tore them away, he saw that her moon’s blood was on her, but it made no difference.
“Hurry,” she was whispering now, “quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime.” Her hands helped guide him. “Yes,” Cersei said as he thrust, “my brother, sweet brother, yes, like that, yes, I have you, you’re home now, you’re home now, you’re home.” She kissed his ear and stroked his short bristly hair.

Dany’s first sex scene was NOT consensual in the books.

He stopped then, and drew her down onto his lap. Dany was flushed and breathless, her heart fluttering in her chest. He cupped her face in his huge hands and looked into his eyes. “No?” he said, and she knew it was a question.
She took his hand and moved it down to the wetness between her thighs. “Yes,” she whispered as she put his finger inside her

this is the direct passage from the book and i believe it is completely consensual

to the people who are justifying the cersei rape with arguments like it happens in this show too often and what’s the big deal. the big deal is that the entire characterization of jamie is built on his love, not lust, for cersei. his chosing of white cloak, giving up casterly rock, even throwing a child from a tower all his actions are out of his love for cersei. and when even in the books the sex scene is more like a grief sex what possible explanation can writers have to destroy that and simply portray it as a rape scene

the only explanation i can think of is that maybe they didn’t want to depict it as a rape scene but they couldn’t film it in such a way that it portrays that while cersei is grieved and is reluctant she was not raped by jamie
