Following an incredible run of seven dramatic, action-packed episodes in its penultimate season, 'Game of Thrones' has once again this year worked its way into the hearts of everybody watching. With just six episodes of the entire series to go before it concludes for good, storylines are going to have to be tied up, with one of the biggest being that of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) discovering that they're related (aunt and nephew), right after they slept together for the first time.

Whilst the scene of their first sexual encounter was one many had looked forward to for some time, seeing the pair make love whilst narration proved they were actually related was one of the strangest moments 'Game of Thrones' has ever had. Still, that's not the problem a vocal minority have with the series.

Instead of being annoyed about incest, there are a complaining few who think the show has too much sex and nudity scattered throughout it. Clarke is no stranger to those scenes, appearing naked on more than one occasion throughout the seven seasons to-date, and she's now hitting back at the complainers.

Citing one of her favourite series ('The Handmaid's Tale') to help make her point, Clarke explained to Harper's Bazaar: "'The Handmaid's Tale'. I f**king love that show, and I cried when it ended because I couldn't handle not seeing it. That is all sex and nudity. There are so many shows centred around this very true fact that people reproduce. People f**k for pleasure – it's part of life."

What's odd about those complaining about these scenes is that they're usually people who haven't seen the overriding series and therefore, don't understand the overall narrative. Whilst some scenes have felt exploitative in 'Game of Thrones' history - a couple including sex in particular - the majority of the time, when somebody is nude on the show or having sex, it's because it benefits moving the story forward.

Sex happens, is a natural part of everybody's life and should be celebrated rather than censored. We have to side with Clarke on this one.
