++ George R.R. Martin has released yet another excerpt from The Winds of Winter. Spoilers, obviously, and caution for some rather uncomfortable things being presented in this chapter.
++ Kit Harington wants more male nudity on Game of Thrones, and to this I say amen! This has been discussed plenty of times before from others, because it's true that there's definitely an imbalance with having only women being completely nude in scenes whereas the men are still fully clothed, not only during sex scenes but also in moments when nudity is rather unnecessary and only done to give HBO their nudity quota. And it's always women, never the men, and if men are featured being undressed it's only a glimpse and never in the roaming manner that is done with women. It's not just the fans addressing this issue, but also the actors. Equal opportunity, it's all we ask. How is that so difficult?
