It’s Not Porn… It’s HBO

By Jacob Klein on Sep 13, 2013 to HBO News

HBO is known for many things.  Wonderful acting, amazing writing and… adult content.  A video making its way around the internet this week pokes fun at some of the more graphic scenes from HBO’s Girls, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones.  WARNING: sexual language ahead:

We actually took a look at this issue this month with articles on whether or not HBO was giving us the shaft and a defense of keeping it covered up.  What do you think about the level of nudity on HBO?

    HBO is nothing but a porno cable station. sad they can’t have great television without it. HBO seems to feel the only way to keep their male viewers happy / keep their ratings high-is with as much degrading of a femake actress they can do. This really is so unnecessary though. Don’t these actresses want to be known for their acting ability , not how much skin they can show! There are great actresses out there that havent shown anything. Too bad thesevin HBO feel they need to show all, whilst their male actors never even take their shirts off more less their pants or their undeware! Sad how HBO has such a double standard!

      you mean like emilia clarke? who has had a compromising scene in the first chapter? and , surprise! her character was one of the most boring ones during the whole first season, no one liked her, even tought she showed so much “skin”. But wow!, surprise, she has gained an actual army of fans and is one of the most popular characters in the GOT show nowadays, without having to show a single shot of her ass. Why? because she is great actress, and her awesome job(and the awesomeness of the show) has skyrocketed her in the fandom. Of course HBO falls in the sin of “fanservice” but in no way does their succes is result of that.

    When are adult movies on HBO? Or adult content

    Just about everyone here who posted is SICK.

      Actually, no; you just think that because you are a complete fucking idiot.

        Swearing shows the level of your lack of intelligence. Now stop being so immature. Your way to young to be watching HBO. Now go wash that potty mouth out.

        • pictureofnectar

          If YOU’RE going to insult someone’s intelligence, make sure YOU’RE doing it correctly.

  • rachel

    was this actually produced by HBO??? or did somebody else do it?

  • Const

    I prefere kids see a nipple than a guy taking a bullet in the head!

    Violence is 100x worth than sex.

    • Guest

      Worth? Writing skills – none- huh! Stupid comments from people who can’t spell. Don’t write on boards! Practice spelling !

    • Momo

      Except the key factor people like you keep completely missing is that the nudity is REAL and the bullets are NOT. That’s the difference. Now would you like to watch your nudity with actors wearing naked suits instead? No, you want to see actual skin. If everyone loved violence the way you say they do, they’d be calling for REAL blood and REAL violence. Because you’re demanding real nude people and comparing it to something completely fake.

  • VL Vanderveer

    That is hilarious. I think they’re right about lots of things – the sex does get extreme at times – but this video handled the whole concept well.

  • Joe

    True Blood was Porn. Glad it is over. HBO should just stay with showing movies.
    all their TV shows stink.

    • Dj

      All HBO TV shows stink? lol NCIS called, they just wanted to say “Thanks for watching!”

      • Robbie Moraes

        NCIS is also crap.

        • Guest

          Your obviously not intelligent enough to understand what NCIS is about! Go back to your cave and stay there

    • donuttime

      You sir, couldn’t be more wrong. Six Feet Under, Sopranos, Newsroom, etc.. I don’t feel like I need to waste another keystroke.

      • Robbie Moraes

        Six Feet Under died a quick death on TV. Newsroom is badly written garbage and barely holding it’s own. Sopranos was racist profiles of people from Italy, saying they are all gangsters, and the NJ was a state full of gangsters. I will not waste time trying to talk to an idiot HBO zombie like you.

        • Nest

          ha, what a pantload. Get over your bloated opinion and stick to bad network TV shows.

          • http://hbowatch.com/ Jacob Klein

            LOL @ pantload. Agree though. Never heard of the Sopranos being a racist show til today.. They even touch on the idea of Italian mischaracterization in the show! Hard to make a show about Italian gangsters from Italy without a lot of Italian gangsters. Obviously not all Italians are gangsters and I think the show points that out SEVERAL times.

          • Guest

          • OhhJay Lynch

            What do you mean degrading woman daenerias is one of the strongest female leads out today she alone controls armies and dragons to reclaim her families throne.

          • Dip

            Your immature with you response. The only bloated thing here is your ridiculous comment . Get a book on writing skills!

        • donuttime

          Ahem, Six Feet Under absolutely did not die a quick death. Quite the contrary, completed with the best series ending episode in this history of TV.

    This was funnier than it should have been, I usually hate these kinds of videos!

  • SerTahu

    That was kind of hilarious :P. It does raise my main complaint with HBO shows in general, though; a lot of the time the sex scenes aren’t there for any real reason other than having a sex scene, and they can often be rather ridiculous.

  • Mishka

    Oh that was hilarious

  • mwilson

    Didn’t expect this to be funny, so I was pleasantly surprised. The champagne bottle is what did it.
