With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.
But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers. Keep reading »
If you watch HBO’s tit-laden nigh-incoherent castle-intrigue juggernaut “Game of Thrones “(or as I like to call it, “The Peter Dinklage Show”) you’ll remember that a couple weeks ago there was an episode with a scene involving two prostitutes.
HAHA, JUST KIDDING, THAT’S EVERY EPISODE. That doesn’t help distinguish them at all. Anyway, just trust me, there were two prostitutes and they get naked — because really that is what 80 percent of the women in this series are there for — and I couldn’t help but notice that their, uh, ladygardens were shockingly well maintained. Like meticulously trimmed topiaries. So much so that it distracted me right out of the scene. Keep reading »
The book in question, according to George R.R. Martin, is “a compendium of the history and legends of the world of Westeros,” and though it’s officially called The World Of Ice and Fire, UK publisher HarperCollins has given it the nickname “The GRRM-arillion.” I like that name better. The nerd is strong with this one.
For all you Westeros backstory fiends, the book is presented as a book given to King Robert Baratheon just after the Rebellion and will contain, per Martin:
“Never-before revealed details of Aegon’s Conquest, the War With the Faith, The Dance of the Dragons, the Paramours of Aegon the Unworthy, etc.”
The book, co-written by Martin and fansite Westeros’ Elio M García, will be out next spring. Read more on The Mary Sue…
Artist Mike Wrobel wanted to update the “Game of Thrones” crew with a new look, and wondered what they might wear if the show took place in the ’90s. Jon Snow, the broody, lady-lipped bastard son of Ned Stark, would most definitely have been into moody grunge bands. His girlfriend, Ygritte, probably started a Garbage cover band or something – maybe called Wild Trash? Instead of dragons, Daenarys might have had ferrets .(What? They’re scary.) And Jamie Lannister? Well, just click after the jump to see what he and Joffrey would have sported. [Mike Wrobel] Keep reading »
A “Game of Thrones” actress has just revealed one of her fellow cast members is tired of getting naked on the hit HBO series.
If you watch “Game of Thrones,” you know it’s a common occurrance to have women walking around completely naked, and far less so, men. Previously, actress Natalia Tena had commented on this. “I think it’s really unfair, every actor, any actress has had her t-ts out. Every single actress I know,” she said. “Blokes it’s like, let’s see some ass! Do you know what I mean? Let’s make it more even.”
But Tena said she has no issues doing a nude scene if it’s called for and speaking with the Telegraph, Oona Chaplin, who plays Robb Stark’s wife Talisa on the series, agreed.
“If it’s done in a beautiful way, in a way that honours the female form, then I’m always happy to see it,” she told them. “The objectification lies in the eye of the beholder, just like beauty. I’m really comfortable getting my kit off, so, if they want to, I’m like, ‘yeah, bring it, I’m naked, no problem.’”
But not all of the women on “Game of Thrones” feel that way. Read more on The Mary Sue…
Last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” introduced us to an important character from George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, Daario Naharis. Or, as I call him, Not-So-Rapey Blond Fabio. (During the first clip presented above, I referred to him as Rapey Blond Fabio, because of the way he and his brethren were behaving, but I adapted his name over the course of the episode — all three of his scenes are above.) By the end of the episode, the lieutenant in the Second Sons mercenary company had killed his two bros, Mero and Prendahl na Ghezn, and sworn his allegiance to Daenerys Targaryen. Wise man, and so much sexier now that he’s a good guy. So who’s the actor playing the show’s latest heartthrob? Let’s get to know Ed Skrein…

Listen up, “Game of Thrones” fans — we have some weekend homework for you. Your assignment is to go back and watch all of Funny or Die’s “Gay of Thrones” recap series because for real? This is fucking “GoT” cracksauce. Each week, hairdresser Jonathan recaps all the dragons, butts, scheming and whatnot that “GoT” has to offer. He hasn’t done a recap for this past episode just yet, so we’re posting the one from episode seven instead.
We’re super sorry we slept on this so long, because this is required viewing for “GoT” fans. I mean, he refers to Daenarys as Christina Aguilera. I live for this.
To make your homework easier, we’ve embedded the other five episodes of “Gay of Thrones” (including one featuring Alfie Allen) after the jump. Keep reading »
If you, like me, are deeply obsessed with “Game of Thrones,” then perhaps Tumblr A Game of Clothes is for you. Combining two of my fave passions––fashion and “GoT,” Game of Clothes offers up runway looks that wouldn’t be out of place in Westeros. Writes the unnamed keeper of the blog fire, “After watching the first season of Game of Thrones I had to read the books, and I loved the descriptions of outfits and locations through out the series so much, that I have collected what I think the characters of A Song of Ice and Fire would wear and live.” Keep reading »
Ask and you shall receive.
Mindy Kaling loves Jimmy Fallon more than anything in the world right now.
The reason? On Thursday, the “Late Night” host granted Kaling’s wish and “asked about” her during his interview with Game of Thrones hunk Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Kaling, who made her request on Twitter hours before the taping, also received photographic evidence from Fallon. Read more on Celebuzz…
“Game of Thrones” is one of my favorite shows on TV, not just right now, but of all time. I must be some kind of magical unicorn, because by virtue of the fact that I have a vagina — I literally just double-checked and, yep, still packing lady parts — I am supposed to hate “Game of Thrones.” This is according to Thrillist’s Renata Sellitti, who wrote an article about why women “hate” the show and offered advice for how “Game of Thrones”-loving men can entice their girlfriends into watching it with them. It is, as you might expect, the biggest pile of direwolf excrement I’ve seen on the internet this week. I am tempted to print out her article, pull down my smallclothes and make water all over it, that’s how bad it is. I’m breathing wildfire I’m so pissed. As Cersei Lannister would say, if she were a woman of the 21st century, BITCH, PLEASE.
Now, I don’t disagree that there are certainly some women out there who hate “Game of Thrones.” (I just don’t happen to know any of them so they clearly weren’t in Renata’s control group. … She polled a wide variety of women in order to determine that basically all of us hate the show, right? I’m sure she did.) But there are also some women who hate “The Bachelor,” “The Real Housewives” franchise and whatever other female-targeted TV shows likely litter Renata’s DVR queue. (I’m not hating on your boob tube choices, girl, I watch those shows too.) And there are certainly men who hate “Game of Thrones,” possibly even for some of the reasons Sellitti claims women are turned off by the show. Oh, yes, the reasons. Let’s review and refute them, shall we? Keep reading »
