Warning: The following video contains sexual content and many "Game of Thrones" spoilers. Those under 18 should not view it. Thank you.
On Sunday, "Game of Thrones" finished its fifth season, which means it’s once again time for a Huffington Post tradition: Our scholarly video round-up of all the sex and nudity on Season 5.
With roughly 6 minutes and 40 seconds of sex scenes and/or nakedness, the critically acclaimed show came back from its Season 4 “adult content” low of under 6 minutes. Still, it was unable to compete with the first three seasons' excessive nudity, which inspired TV critic Myles McNutt to coin the term “sexposition”
In terms of the nature of the naughty, as is often the case with "Game of Thrones," it was a mix of tantalizing and horrifying. Fortunately, perhaps learning from their previous experience, the showrunners spared us from witnessing the season’s most vile sex act –- the rape of Sansa Stark -- on camera. But there were still plenty of uncomfortable moments, most notably Cersei Lannister’s dehumanizing “walk of shame.” It’s a sequence responsible for nearly a third of the nudity this season, and some very conflicting emotions for "Game of Thrones" fans in a love/hate relationship with the Queen Regent.
Check out the full, very NSFW collection in the video below. Hopefully all the body heat can keep you warm during the long winter before the premiere of Season 6.
