Skip to comments.Has Game of Thrones gone too far? Scene involving group of prostitutes at start of new series..
Posted on 04/09/2014 11:34:49 AM PDT by C19fan
A prince strips a posing group of prostitutes naked one by one as he selects a companion for the night. It sounds like a scene from a porn film, but this was the latest episode of the epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones, based on the novels of George R R Martin. The start of the gory series fourth season on Monday even managed to shock its own fans. .....................................................
Campaigners warned it could lead to young people being desensitised to content once considered shocking and being influenced by the behaviour they displayed. Miranda Suit, of Safermedia, said: What are [young girls] learning from some of these storylines?

What are parents thinking allowing [young girls] to watch this in the first place?
After seeing all the articles about the show, I watched it. It’s porn masked with a script.
its a soft porn show
the story sounded interesting but after a while I just could not stand the crudity - which does nothing to advance the story
It’s premium cable...you have to pay to get it. Anything after that is on YOU, not the show.
The show is very similar to the books it is based on. The very graphic nature of the scenes in the show is unnecessary. Martin has written a terrific series of fantasy novels with compelling characters. The sex scenes need not be so explicit or graphic in the novels or the show. The show would lose nothing that makes it genuinely worthwhile by toning down those scenes.
The other day, there was an article about Maureen Dowd fantasizing about the “Red Wedding” scene - but in her fantasy, it was liberals doing that to Republicans.
That’s how whacked out lunatic the left is becoming.
As a fan of the show and books, yes they have gone to far in making for no reason Prince Oberyn an aggressive homosexual.
The character was not as such in the book. In fact, there was really on the vaguest reference of a gay relationship between two characters in the first book. It was never openly described or even discussed.
However, despite the fact that there is apparently an little flying fairy on the set somewhere with a needs more gay in it wand injecting gay into everything it can find, the scene with Arya and Sandor at the end was almost flawless.
It was just absolutely brilliantly filmed, and I loved watching it. The actor and actress who plays each are just phenomenal.
But please, Homosexual Box Office, we don’t need or want the gay. Seriously, keep that damn crap to yourself, because it’s obnoxious and boring.
they are NAZI
She’s mentally unbalanced.
I gave up on The Bridge for the same reason. Actually turned out to be a pretty disgusting show with only one likable character, the Chief of Police on the American side.
If Thrones cut out all the porn - it seems like an interesting story underneath there somewhere
Living with these people is like being locked in a room with a psychotic. He’s got his meds, for now... but he’s gonna run out of them soon.
That’s what it feels like. They’re mentally unstable and deficient in even the most basic sense of human morality.
i’d’say young liberal women flukes told them to embrace their inner slut pride.
see Post 14
Hi, NFHale. It seems that we agree. :)
Exactly. It’s a choice. Don’t blame the show. We do too much of that and take away personal responsibility, always blaming someone else.
It’s a “medieval” fantasy TV show.
Ever seen the type of guys that grew up as hardcore D&D nerds? This is actually their G-rated daydreams.
I don't know of any. Do you?
Watched a few episodes, horny bunch of medieval types....
Conservatives shouldn't be paying HBO anyhow
Yes, I know the list of companies Conservatives should be boycotting is almost endless, however HBO is probably the top company of that list to boycott. You pay for HBO you are paying Bill Maher, Bryantt Gumbel and Solodad O'Brien just to name a few.
You do more harm to the Conservative movement by paying HBO than you would if you were order from JCPennys online using Firefox.
If you found that in season 4 opener shocking...you haven’t seen season 1, 2 & 3...its not ever worth mention by Game of Thrones standards
I like Game of Thrones. .but it is Adults Only!!!
Have never heard of it.
I am all for firebombing studios who do this kind of stuff...and their patrons.
...and their networks.
So she fantasize the Red Wedding as the left doing it to Republican? ..WOW!...talking a Freudian slip..because if you watch the show that is the evil bad guys backstabbing the good guys
...and their satellite and cable distributors
The nudity at the brothel last about 2 minutes in a 1 hour show. No sex scenes.
Prince Oberyn brought his mistress the bastard Ellaria Sand to pick both a male and female prostitute. They are both bisexuals from Dorne. In Westeros Dorne is like Sodom. This scene was meant to illustrate those points. How Dorne and its people differ from the rest of Westeros.
People who call GoT porn are either ignorant or stupid.
Ditto. That scene was not surprising except for the fact that it wasn’t in the book.
We just record it, and skip the graphic sex.
Well, I am reading the books right now and so far there has not been near as much “soft porn” as in the show. But I have only seen Season One thus far. In the books there is mention of sex here and there, it’s not been over done. Just a few words here and there.
That is interesting in itself.
But of course we do, my friend!!! :^)
They should not have minors in the cast then
I watch a few series on HBO mostly during free preview weekends on Uverse. True Detective was so good I would have paid HBO for a few months to watch it.
It got a 9.4 out of 10 rating on IMDB which is rare
The lives of two detectives, Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, become entangled during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana.

It’s an extension of “try before you buy.” If you’re royalty, you get an extra layer of consumer protection; it’s “try before you try.” /S
There is a big difference between text and tv/film. Reading, "Jane walked into the Walmart and took all her clothes off," is very different from watching a film of Jane walking into the Walmart and taking all her clothes off. It would take a lot of words to describe everything that is seen in the situation.
Even more so, text vs. film, if the situation is, "Jane walked into the Walmart, took all her clothes off, and then had sex with Bob in the laundry-detergent aisle."
Yeah, I’ve seen the clip of it. It’s not for the squeamish.
That was what she said she dreamed about.
Nice, huh? What a psycho nutjob...
you know darn well that there are probably lots of freeper men who think this is their RIGHT to have this crap available to them night and day.....
It’s not porn, it’s HBO!
and people worry about the totalitarian govt when the very essense of people's souls are LOST and buddy, you are one of them....
what the bible says....when good is called bad, and bad, good....
It was the same way with The Tudors a few years back. I loved that series, but they had to throw two queer characters into the mix.
The books do not have much sexual description. With the exception of the marriage of Danarys and her husband in the first book. He mostly implies the sexual acts without graphic detail.
I tried to watch the series until the gay sex came up. I do not watch that. It amazes me HBO seems to be under the impression folks want to watch that trash.
"Clean up in aisle 12!"
I love Game of Thrones. Compared to the Sparticus series on Starz, the sex and violence is pretty tame.
There is some nudity, but generally its over quickly. There is a warning before each episode. It is rated TV-MA.
All that being said, I think it is the best cable drama series on TV.
