The third season of "Game of Thrones" has come to a close, which means it's time for us to continue our highly scientific study of sex and nudity in the acclaimed HBO series.
While "Game of Thrones" offers up a multitude of feminist role models, it has often been criticized for its gratuitous sex scenes. Perhaps this is part of the reason Season 3 reduced the amount of sex and nudity, at least in frequency. Where the first and second seasons featured sex and/or nudity in 10 out of 10 and 8 out of 10 episodes, respectively, the third season got sexually explicit in only 5 out of 10. However, when it came to the duration of scenes with sex and nudity, the third season has both the first and second beat with a total of roughly 8 minutes and 30 seconds per scene. By comparison, the first season had 8 minutes and 10 seconds and the second season had 7 minutes and 40 seconds.
"Game of Thrones" Season 3 also seemed to have a higher diversity of nudity, with a notable influx of male backsides and even a few flashes of male full–frontal. Of course, it wouldn’t be "Game of Thrones" without also including a few trips to Lord Baelish’s bordello, but on the whole, the sex this season felt more organic to the story than in the past -- alternately steamy (Jon Snow FINALLY losing his v-card) and terrifying (Theon's last romp before being mutilated into an "SNL" parody), but always captivating.
