One of the hardest things to do in fiction is make expository dialogue seem interesting. Writers tend to call it “laying pipe” because you need to get the information to the audience for the story to work but it’s very hard to make a talking-head info dump a memorable scene.
Television shows and movies go to great length to present these scenes in an interesting way. In the famous script writing guide Save the Cat, screenwriter Blake Snyder covered the issue in detail with an example he used in one of his films and Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have talked about it on the Rick and Morty DVD commentary tracks.
Game of Thrones (and other prestige television shows) tended to use sexposition for these foundational dialogue scenes, which is to say they distracted you from exposition dumps with tits. Mr. Skin, the definitive authority on what scenes in what shows you can use to jerk off to your favorite celebrities, recently catalogued all the nudity in Game of Thrones‘ entire run (link NSFW).
The thing that stands out the most is that yes, the amount of nudity on the show went down as the show went on, with the exception of a slight resurgence in season five. Season one had 19 nude scenes compared to just six in the penultimate season. The site doesn’t have stats for season eight but I can only think of two or three nude scenes and they were all incredibly brief. Keep in mind this is a show that once created a new character (Esme Bianco’s Ros) just to be in sexposition scenes and is rumored to have killed her off because she wanted a no nudity clause in her renegotiated contract. The quality of the nudity went downhill, too. Remember Emilia Clarke’s sex scenes in season one? Compare those to her eventual rumpy pumpington with Jon Snow at the end of season six where all we saw was a bit of Kit Harrington’s ass.
If you’ve ever wondered how much nudity there actually was, the site reports that over the course of the series we saw 134 boobs, 60 butts, 28 vaginas and 7 dongs over 108 minutes of on-screen nudity. Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington are the two stars people wanted to see naked the most, which makes their disappointing sex scene all the more disappointing.
Rewatching Game of Thrones is certainly going to be an interesting experience. Back in the halcyon days of season one the show was still sexy and well-written, a big departure from the extended boobless montage sequence that was the final two.

June is Pride Month, the one month a year where lesbians and gay men aren’t entirely shitty to bisexuals. It’s also the time of year where brands put rainbow flags in their social media accounts and hope no one looks into how much money they’re spending expanding into Saudi Arabia.
Ellen Page, the second most famous lesbian named Ellen, is celebrating Pride by posting topless pictures of her and her dancer wife on Instagram, which I must admit seems like a great way to celebrate.
Page’s wife Emma Portner also posted pictures of the couple from the same shoot.
They did the same thing a few weeks ago which was not for Pride Month, but who’s complaining?
Page and Portner were married last year after dating for six months, which, believe me, is an eternity for lesbians. Seriously, you know what most lesbians do on their second date? Nothing special, just have dinner, see a movie and then go back to their place.
Six months is coincidentally one month for every inch of forehead Page is usually covering with some sort of hat.
I mean, she’s an attractive women, but if there’s ever an all-female Robin Hood movie she’s a shoe-in for Friar Tuck.

Late May and early June means that school is almost over and graduation and prom are going on now. Most of you probably don’t care because you’re not in high school, but it is a nice reminder to pick up a card for your snot-nosed nephew to congratulate him on his 2.0 GPA and acceptance to the school Lori Loughlin’s daughter should have been going to.
It also means that we’re going to have celebrities going to prom with kids to get those sweet, sweet PR rewards, and our first example of the year is Khloe, who went to prom with a fan for an episode of her reality show.

Oh sure, Khloe takes a fan to his prom and it’s such a sweet gesture but when I offer to take that cashier at the grocery store to her prom it’s all “that’s not appropriate.”
Khloe mentioned on Twitter that this was her first prom.

I mean, a keyhole top is certainly a look for a high school prom. it’s also another thing people tell me is inappropriate when I try to pull it off.
How many girls from this high school do you think lost their virginity that night to a boyfriend who was trying to cover up accidentally calling her Khloe in the middle? It has to be at least a dozen, right?

Josh Duggar and Anna Duggar are expecting their sixth child.
Now that this news has been made public and the couple is back in the spotlight, however, it looks very much as if they should also be expecting something else:
A great deal of vitriol online.
Josh and Anna are already parents to a quintent of kids: Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith and Mason.
They are all very cute and we can all agree that a baby is a blessing -- so obviously critics aren't saying anything negative about the tiny human-to-be him or herself.
However, Josh has admitted to molesting his own sisters when he was a teenager.
These are just two of the (HUGE) reasons why Josh is not one of the most popular people on the Internet these days -- and they also explain why he hasn't posted anything on Instagram since October 2017.
However, Anna jumped online this past Friday and posed alongside her husband.
The pair held up a recent ultrasound photo and Anna wrote the following to her followers:
Just had our gender reveal ultrasound! What's your guess?
She listed "boy" or "girl" as the options in her poll, but bitter/angry/hilarious social media users went ahead and basically added their own responses.
"I vote intersex so we can see how they handle that. Though I wouldn't wish that on any child with ignorant fundie parents," wrote the Facebook account that posted this picture, Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray.
Another commenter, meanwhile, quipped that Anna looks "terrified" because she's having a girl and, well, we're disgustingly know Josh Duggar's history with female relatives.
There's also the hope that the child is somehow a "velociprator" so he or she can eat Josh upon birth.
Others, meanwhile, pleaded with Anna to stop procreating with this monster of a former reality star.
"Stop it Anna!! He should not be around children especially his own. You really have a problem!! Get rid of him before it is way too late. None of us want to see him ever again!!"
But others theorized that Anna almost has no choice; she's been conditioned and raised to believe her only point in life is to submit to her husband and have tons of children with him.
Sadly, this doesn't sound all that far-fetched, does it?
Anna and Josh announced they were expecting back on April 26.
“We couldn’t be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall,” they said in a statement at this time, adding:
"We continually stand amazed by God’s love, redemption, grace and blessings in our lives. Our entire little family is ecstatic!"
The couple included with this announcement a video that featured their kids looking very excited about the impending addition.
Check it out here:
Again, the kids are adorable.
We're happy that they're happy.
But Josh just sucks so much, you guys, and we worry that Anna is nothing more than a brainwashed cult member at this point.
"While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife," Josh confessed a few years ago.
"I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him," he added, concluding:
"I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time."
Jenelle Evans is officially doing all she can to earn her children back.
As just confirmed by The Hollywood Gossip, this polarizing MTV personality is headed to therapy and has agreed to take parenting courses -- whatever it takes to become a full-time mother again.
In the meantime, however, Jenelle's own mother has made a point to confirm something herself:
Her grandkids are doing very well at the moment, have no worries!
Amid the ongoing controversy of Jenelle and husband David Eason losing custody of their children (because their home is an unsafe enviroment, as recently proven by David's assassination of a family pet), Barbara Evans has been thrust back into the spotlight.
She has been serving as the primary caregiver for Jenelle's first-born, Jace, for many years now.
But Barbara is now also in charge of two-year old Ensley ...
... and she wants the world to know that the toddler is happy, healthy and having tons of fun these days.
"Having fun at coast guard Day,eating hot dogs,frozen ice,and learning about rescue equipment," Evans wrote as a caption to the photos above and below of her grandkids.
She shared these images on Saturday, June 1 and continued to receive praise from followers who are grateful that Barbara is giving the children a loving home.
Of course, some might interpret the following remarks as being more anti-Jenelle than they are pro-Barbara, but that doesn't change the fact that Ensley was home just a few weeks ago when her dad beat her French Bulldog bloody and then shot it dead in the woods...
... and now she's out and about, earing hot dogs and living the carefree, peaceful lifestyle that all kids deserve.
Jace and Ensley are accompanied in these images by their cousin, Gabriel.
They've gone viral in the wake of Jenelle and Eason failing to regain custody of her three kids and his daughter, Maryssa, during a Tuesday, May 28, court appearance.
As mentioned previously, Barbara already had custody of nine-year old Jace, who Jenelle shares with ex Andrew Lewis; while four-year old Kaiser is with his father, Nathan Griffith right now.
It's a complicated and somewhat fluid situation.
However, a North Carolina judge told Jenelle that she “failed to protect the children while they were in her care" and the kids were removed last month after Eason killed the reality star’s dog because he allegedly snapped at Ensley.
Barbara showed support for her daughter after the ruling several days ago, but also for the well-being of her young loved ones.
“Of course I would like for Jenelle to get them all back eventually,” she told E! News on Tuesday. “But certain things have to happen first.”
Jenelle, meanwhile, spoke to The Hollywood Gossip exclusively last week and said the following:
“I love my kids so much and I will do anything necessary to get them back and that is all I want everyone to understand.
"I love being a mother and David and I will get through this. We are staying strong and united.
"I ask everyone to have an open heart before they judge how the media is portraying me.”
