Apart from spine-chilling action and impeccable story telling, fans of HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones” have also been exposed to a fair share of nudity and sexual content throughout the seven seasons.

With the series filming its eighth and final season, “Daenerys Targaryen herself, Emilia Clarke, addressed pundits of the show, who continually claim that it has too many erotic scenes.

“I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah, all the porn sites went down when ‘Game of Thrones’ came back on,” the 31-year-old English actress said during an interview for  Harpers Bazaar magazine, as relayed by Mashable.

She also couldn’t help comparing the show’s nudity to another hit series from Hulu, “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

“I’m like, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale?’ I fu**ing love that show, and I cried when it ended because I couldn’t handle not seeing it. That is all sex and nudity.”

Furthermore, Clarke shared how people shouldn’t base a show’s brilliance by simply judging the amount of nudity in it.

“There are so many shows centered around this very true fact that people reproduce,” she explained. “People f**k for pleasure—it’s part of life.”

Although many characters have engaged in sexual acts throughout the show, Clarke’s persona, Daenerys, has been part of the show’s most notable ones—including sensitive topics that dealt with rape and incest.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
