Game of Thrones was the biggest and also one of the most controversial shows of the past decade. The fantastical series was famous not just for its story and amazing CGI, but also graphic nudity. The series is also criticized for sometimes forcing artists into such scenes, like Emilia Clarke. In an interview with Digital Spy , several cast members got candid about shooting naked on the show. That was pretty funny.

During its eight-season run on HBO, the cast and crew of Game of Thrones enjoyed the many perks of being on premium cable. As a result, the series became known for its racy content — which included plenty of nudity and sex scenes. But in the beginning, the cast says that first-time showrunners D. Many of the actors in the fantasy series bared all for the camera, but the vast majority were females.

Worse were the frequent scenes of sexual violence, which served little to no purpose in furthering the plot — despite showrunners insisting that they did. Emilia Clarke , who starred as Daenerys Targaryen in all eight seasons of the hit HBO show, recently spoke about those early scenes, revealing that she had no idea nudity would be required of her until after she had signed on for the role. It is a little sad, though, that she felt her lack of experience was the culprit in those early days.
Not all sex on Game of Thrones is created equal. Sure, the HBO fantasy drama has not unfairly developed a reputation for gratuitous violence and sexual relations of all configurations—man on woman, man on man, sorceress on man, brother on sister—but some of that stuff matters. Sex is wielded in Westeros, like everything else, as a form of power. If you're demanding it the way Daenerys tells her bearded underling to strip, it's a good sign you're in charge. Of course, sometimes bare boobs are just bare boobs.
