Game of Thrones' is undoubtedly on of the shows on HBO that has a very large amount of nude scenes. This has brought the show under severe backlash by the public, however stars Sophie Turner and Kit Harington, have come to the defense of the show.

Speaking at a press conference, Sophie, who plays Sansa Stark, said: "I think, on Game of Thrones - as much as some people would like to disagree with me - it's all very necessary.

"I mean, women in those times - medieval times - didn't really have a huge say in the world. They couldn't manipulate that well through their power because they didn't have a huge amount.

"I think one of the main ways that women can use what they have is through sex. They can really manipulate people through men's desire... so I think it is quite necessary that [the writers] show that aspect."

Her co-star Kit Harington (Jon Snow) joined the argument and insisted there is still "a lot of male nudity" on the show, while admitting he thinks it should be "equal".

According to Digital Spy, he added: "I sometimes get annoyed with that question - I do think there should be an equal amount, [but] I think it's wrong to say there isn't any male nudity in Thrones.

"There's more [male nudity] than in any other show - it's just the ratio [that's skewed]."
