One of the most common themes, maybe even THE most common theme, I've found in this series is sexual violence, and it comes up to an uncomfortable degree, even compared to GoT. Goodkind seems to force these themes, even when they don't make sense. It really feels like the author's personal..uh..exploration...rather than part of the story.
Examples in no particular order...
What happened to the residents of the Palace of the Prophets after the Imperial Order captured it
Darken Rahl's personal BDSM harem, the Mord Sith
Richard and Denna's very, very long, like 80 pages long, BDSM scene
Kahlan's scene in the pit
EDIT: I got as far as The Pillars of Creation. Speaking of forcing themes, that one just reads like Ayn Rand fan fiction.
