Game of Thrones has always been popular because of its wonderful storytelling and unexpected twists. The famous HBO series is also popular because of its nudity and violence. However, the show producers certainly never imagined the sex scenes of the show ending up in porn websites and those particular sites even hosting some fictional content.
HBO has not absorbed this lightly and have taken legal action against the guilty porn site, which is using clips and images from the show as well as fictional content related to the theme of the popular series. Some of the content also features parodies of Cersei, Lord Varys, Daenerys Targaryen, Khal Dorgo etc, as reported by The Sun.
“HBO is aware of the issue and is in the process of getting material taken down from Pornhub”, a spokesperson of HBO said. This doesn’t mean that the producers of the show will change their way of approaching nudity in the show. Their main intention is not seeing their actors being displayed on a porn site, as reported by the New York Post.
Some of the popular actresses of the series searched on the porn site are Emilia Clarke, Natalie Dormer, Sibel Kekilli, Lena Headey and Carice van Houten. Although Emilia Clarke has said previously that she takes great pride in doing her own nude scenes, featuring on a porn site would have been far from her mind, as reported by Yibada.
Some of the other related searches for Game of Thrones on the porn site include “porn”, “parody” and “sex scene”. It has been seen in statistics that the viewership of the content decreased an hour before the telecast of Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 1, according to Mail Online. However, regular ratings followed, four hours afterwards.
