A Few Questions  
I have been wondering about Petyr, especially in show canon. Is he disfigured? Or perhaps a little ashamed of his scar? I ask for two reasons:

1.) His verbal sparring with Varys. He tends to mention Varys' manhood (or lack thereof) whenever he wants to make a jab at him. Is this projection because of some perceived inadaquacy, or did Brandon Stark give him a little too much of his sword, if you know what I mean?

2.) In the sexposition scene (as it is so lovingly referred to in the fandom), he declines Ros's invitation to join them, citing how he is "saving himself" for Cat. Do you think he was lying, or is he really a born-again virgin?

So many questions!

Hmmm, doesn't he first mention his scar in the show to Cat and Ned? It's been awhile since I read GoT, but it seems that if it bothered him a great deal that it would be the last thing he'd want to talk about, especially with those 2 particular people. (Petyr does not seem to relish pointing out his own weaknesses, but loves to zero in on perceived weaknesses of others.)

Re #2: I'm not sure how they are going to handle things in the show, especially since they've added the "whore-business" angle to his character, but I assumed he was lying to a small extent. We could get into a big ole discussion about it that covers all of the currently published books, but I don't know if this comm is meant to mostly be show-only or show *and* books. Don't want to spoil anybody! D-:
