Game of thrones is excellent but is the amount of porn in it really nessecery?
I asked friends in work the day if they watch it and they basically made me feel like a pervert.
If the show was made PG everyone could watch it without feeling ashamed.
I think it's true that some of sex and nudity is gratuitous especially when used as a backdrop to exposition but I think the show reduced the number of them last season and the season 3 premiere featuring only a short scene of nudity. I have a feeling that HBO wanted more sex to draw in an audience when it launched and it's clear now that that side is not needed so much. They also need more running time just to move the plot along.
