Wow that is bizarre, where was it moved from?
Think it was on this forum. Once in a while someone would have a poke at the Dr Who fans. Maybe DS put us there in the hope they'd attack. No one seems to have even noticed us yet. Then again it might have something to do with the time/space thingy.

Still - running arround Tesco as suggested by Helbore

Only the idiots don't welcome it and we don't care what they think anyway.

Tesco is such a dull place, as it is, too. Having a few women shouting out their sexual fantasies would do no end in livening up the weekend shop!
And your good self (Not forgetting the Marks & Spencer Food Hall)
Well I'm doing some shopping today, I will give it a go, if I get arrested I'm going to be blaming you.

"But officer, Helbore said people would like to know how I feel about Jaime Lannister and cucumbers".
There is a real danger that 'The amount of porn in Game of thrones' thread could be moved to the Food and Drink forum! I'm right out of eeks 'cos of all the quotes.

I'm actually going to complain to the producers, Jon Snow wasn't anywhere near naked enough last week!

there isn't anywhere NEAR as much as a lot of other shows, and it's quite refreshing that it's more talky-talky than bonky-bonky

that's why i got bored REAL QUICK with the borgias when it started, and although stuff like BOSS and BANSHEE also has coital escapades, but it's their strong story lines that draw me in more

It is a show on a premium cable channel aired after 9 PM.

It is not meant to be watched with the entire family, it is for adult audiences, not for mum and dad and the kids, just mum and dad. Over 18s only.

If you're incapable of understanding that, that is not the producer or broadcaster's fault, it is your own ignorance in effect.

Also if you think that sex scenes are porn, you've never seen porn. I've not seen anyone spitting out bodily fluids or getting DP'd on Game Of Thrones. I don't think you watch any porn if you are so prudish to think that sex scenes with no actual close ups of genitalia are porn.

The amount of sex is ruining the show. You can't even watch it with your family.
I've never seen any sex in GOT. I've seen people pretending to have sex, I believe it's called acting.

And I think that it says something about you that you don't consider anything other than seeing someone "spitting out bodily fluids" and "close ups of genitalia" as porn. I would guess you watch a lot of it and have got somewhat jaded over the content.

I don't mind the naked bodies and the sex scenes (WHY are we only getting totally naked women walking around, why are the male scenes only from the back?), but they don't particularly add to the story most of the time and compared to similar series I've seen, there is a LOT of extra nudity. I was assuming they were adding it for for American cable viewers, since the sanitised nature generally of American mainstream channels means they don't normally get to see naked women and simulated sex on tv, so presumably it's an added bonus reason for Americans to watch.

Maybe I'm just jaded to all nudity on the screen, but, I don't really bat an eyelid when its on. It just happens. There's nothing heavy about it, unless, its related to Joffrey/Baelish. In some ways its attitude is puritanical - if your a prostitute - you're going to be tortured or murdered.
I think the Jon Snow/Ygrette shenanigans is handled quite sweetly.

To be honest, I cant believe there's a thread dedicated to the sexual content.

I will say that I've noticed a school boy fetish for Daenerys on threads and in the media, which makes me go , I think her early scenes defo played up to the young male demographic... ie; the willowy virginal blonde mounted on her wedding night blah blah. Or maybe that's the 'any str8 male demographic'?
Rambo & top Gun type films worry me far more than GOT.

i don't care either way. a bit of nudity and some sex scenes don't bother me in the slightest. but i will say that they missed an oppertunity! what the hell's the point in making kit harington sign a nudity clause and having him talk about how comfortable he was to prance around naked, when all that's shown is a 0.025sec glimpse of his bum. and with jon snow being one of the most popular male characters...at least NCW gave us a decent bum shot.

but seriously though, what's the point? i mean, they don't skimp on getting the girls as naked as possible to appeal to the male demographic, but a huge portion of their fanbase - as has been noted with some considerable surprise by the actors - are women. so why not cater to them too? why not even it up?

Game of thrones is excellent but is the amount of porn in it really nessecery?
.
No. Purely gratuitous and isn't neccesary to move the story along.

Detracts (and I think spoils) a promising programme - I am new to it.

The amount of gratuitous plot in recent episodes has been OTT. At least we Ygritte's boobs to mitigate this slightly....

You must have missed a few scenes then, as I can recall at least two of full frontal male nudity off the top of my head - Theon in series 1 and Olyvar the male prostitute in last week's episode.

and hodor


but i think the point is, considering that theon's given full frontal i think twice, that's a grand total of 4 scenes of male nudity throughout the entire 3 seasons. it doesn't even compare to the female counterpart. at times there have been as many or more naked women in one single episode.

Women have come a long way in the equality stakes, but I think having an equal number of male and female nude scenes is a long way off

I for one am very grateful for the ones we ladies have had.

Plenty of shows show boobs at the drop of a hat, not many at all will show a man't bum let alone balls So i'm quite content with what we've been given!

All i'm going to say about the OP is 3 seasons in and it is well known that GOT is a heavy duty sex and violence program, problem is most people in this country are repressed when it comes to s e x (which after all is very very normal and healthy to partake in) and the home grown tv we get is so sanitised it's starting to get silly.

I can see why a show like GOT comes as a shock, for some it is unpleasant but for others like me it's a nice surprise. I am an adult and love the fact that there is a show for adults!



I think GOT uses sex and nudity in a very reasonable manner. Other shows would go the direction of showing something just for the hell of it and nothing really to do with the story.

A show like GOT would never ever get made in the UK that's for sure, shame on us, we don't all want to see U rated tv.

Urm, Game of Thrones is heavily funded by the Northern Ireland Government through Northern Ireland Screen (and also receives funding from the European Union via the European Regional Development Fund), last time I looked that was still part of the UK
Did you perhaps mean it wouldn't air on mainstream television channels rather than a cable/satellite channel as it is now via Sky. With that I tend to agree with you.
But the BBC isn't above getting involved in "hard core" television shows, they part funded Rome alongside HBO and that was fairly graphic for "mainstream" TV.

I hope the white walkers grab that nasty Joffrey and abuse him horribly with their icicles.
