Just What You've Always Wanted

Female Comedians Campaign For More Dongs on HBO [VIDEO]


If you watch Game of Thrones you know HBO loves their female nudity. But male nudity? Not so much. A selection of HBO’s female viewers speak out on this inequality in a hilarious video titled “HBO Should Show Dongs.” One of my favorite bits: “For every topless background extra, every actress that bears her bouncies but doesn’t even get a line, every minute we have to sit through this dumb double-standard, you owe us an inch of grade-A man meat.”

Truth.

Slightly NSFW for blurred out boobs ‘n’ bits.

    Not enough dick? well what do you consider Joffery?

    SNAP

    Yes because we all wanted to see the dongs that were from the majority of serial killers.

    Thank you.

    but Oz didn’t show naked women every 2.5 mn so it was a world apart.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Well, to be technical, some were just gang members, drunk drivers and nazis…but, whatever…
    Seriously though, it was a naked male soap opera and it was glorious. Also, are you only interested in upstanding citizen dongs? Because if so, there’s like 3 characters on HBO that would fit that profile.

    Has no one learned from Egon about crossing streams? Cheezits!

    Given all the tumblr porn of Hannibal… Yes. Yes apparently that is EXACTLY what people want.

  • Jason Hunt

    I’ve not seen any female genitalia on GoT. Unless I missed those parts?

  • Canisa

    Missed those parts? I dunno if that was intentional or not. Also, yeah, you missed those parts. There are a whole bunch of crotch-shots of ladies. As for dicks? We see two of them, one in a non-sexual context and another for less than a second. Naked women appear for little reason, while naked men do not appear even when their genitals are plot-relevant. It’d be good if that stopped.

  • http://www.emmadeer.com/ Emma Deer

    My thoughts exactly! Haha, thanks for the laugh!

  • http://adventureinepisode.tumblr.com/ DarthBetty

    1. There are plenty of times when women are used in a non sexual way but still in a naked way. So this is possible for men. Meaning whether they are attractive or not isn’t relevant.

    2. Aside from a personal preference, they “look ridiculous” because that’s the only way they are ever shot. For comedy or shock value. It’s the norm on dicks.

    3. We’re really just asking for some equality. If I have to see a fully naked woman in bed with a fully naked man. There is no reason why I shouldn’t see some D. People thinking they are gross or unwanted is a terrible thing to perpetuate.

  • Fluka

    Given that people have coined the term “King’s Landing Strip”…

  • Fluka

    *Raises hand!* I would like to see more dongs, please!

  • Fluka

    Seriously, come ON Game of Thrones! Stop being such goddamn prudes!

    (Seriously, Rome and Spartacus were perfectly happy donging doing this. If you’re only going to be “mature” when it comes to lady nudity, I am going to call you hypocritical and chickeeeeen!)

  • Liz Corazza

    hahaha, yeah, you’ve missed them. Maybe partially because of their historically inaccurate portrayal? For ex, Natalia Tena plays a former Wildling who lives an almost feral Au-naturel lifestyle; she wanted to wear a pubic wig so that her character (who obvs doesn’t shave let alone cut her own hair) wouldn’t have a perfectly coiffed modern vulva in her nude scenes. She was very upset to discover that her “minge was shown without any hair” (her words) in her nude scenes. Any argument about the female nudity being necessary for the ‘historical accuracy’ of the show really loses its sway when this kind of thing happens.

  • Jason Hunt

    Sorry, all I’ve seen is pubic hair, haven’t seen any female genitalia. From what you’ve described there’s been more male genitalia on display in the show.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    It doesn’t count as a vagina if it’s not shaved?

  • Jason Hunt

    We’re not looking at their vagina in the scenes, we’re seeing their pubic hair. I can’t say I’ve ever considered a man’s pubic hair part of his genetalia. Do you consider a mans pubic hair as part of his genitalia?

  • Rebecca Pahle

    If there’s just a bit of a happy trail situation, no, because man’s pubic hair is above the actual penis. But with ladies, the pubic hair is ON the vagina, so it’s still genital nudity.

    I can’t believe I’m having this conversation. Other commenters, back me up here.

  • Jason Hunt

    Indeed it is on it. Covering it up so it’s not so exposed for all to see. Perhaps I should rephrase it by saying that one set of genitalia is far more exposed than the other. :P

  • Jason Hunt

    Well to be honest, I get bored with the nude scenes. I’d be very happy if Daenerys kept her clothes on and they shortened her scenes by a few minutes. Give more time to Arya and Brienne and than the cheesiness that is dragon lady.

  • frodobatmanvader

    I think the only two examples of nudity that WEREN’T gratuitous involved Daenerys, were in season one, and served as bookends:

    1) Daenerys’ early scene when her skeevy brother fondles her. Seeing her nude makes things that much more uncomfortable, in a way that no nudity wouldn’t have, which in turn makes you empathize with her that much more.

    2) At the end of season 1 when the fire burns off everything but her renewed vigor. She’s got Dragons, fools! Here, the nudity rewrites the context of the earlier scene by showing her as strong and proud, not weak and objectified.

    EVERY OTHER EXAMPLE OF NUDITY ON THE SHOW HAS BEEN COMPLETELY, UTTERLY GRATUITOUS.

  • frodobatmanvader

    Whether or not there’s hair on it, you can still see their Vulva, which IS the outer part of the vagina. Google ‘female anatomy’ and stop running your mouth about body parts you don’t have.

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    Pubic hair isn’t a coat, we don’t come equipped with censor bars. That is our genetalia. You are seeing it as is. Sorry the women aren’t spread eagle so you can view the inside or anything but female genetalia is on Game of Thrones.

  • http://carnivaloftherandom.blogspot.com Kristen McHugh

    I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but: If you need the anatomical reasons why female pubic hair is actual full-frontal nudity explained to you, please consult your basic anatomy text and stop watching porn pootie for reference. Seriously. Male pubic hair may be above the pubic bone (as Rebecca referenced, “Happy trail,” or may be on the pubic bone right above/around the penis.) The only reason post-pubescent women don’t have hair all over our genitalia (Vulva/labia/pudenda) is choice. *facepalm*

  • http://carnivaloftherandom.blogspot.com Kristen McHugh

    Sexiness is ancillary. Contextually-appropriate parity is the point. If one person is naked and the other person should be naked but is not, it’s jarring. Ex. in Trance, there is close-up (and plot-relevant) full-frontal female nudity. Yet, the contextually-appropriate corresponding full-frontal male nudity was a pulled punch. As a ymmv/imo aside: I actually find it enhances my opinion of an actor’s attractiveness when they’re willing to do nudity, not because of what they look like, but because they’re making themselves vulnerable in ways that are usually reserved for women at the mercy of a male gaze.

  • Jason Hunt

    My wife doesn’t agree with you. She said it was OK for me to have my opinion because she agrees with me. ;)

  • Jason Hunt

    I can’t believe I’m going to say this but: I’ve not seen vulva after vulva on GoT. Do you need to sit 2 inches from the screen to spot all of this?

  • Greycat

    I don’t know. I think Brienne’s ass shot wasn’t gratuitous. It was shocking in a “fuck you!” kind of way.

  • Dessa Brewington

    Maybe he comes from the Bugs Bunny school of thought: If fur counts as clothes for Bugs, then a tiny patch of hair counts for people!

  • Anonymous

    I’ve been saying this for years. The fact that I like both tits and dick is only a very small part of why…

  • frodobatmanvader

    Oh, yeah. Forgot about that one. Good point. Sometimes my hyperbole gets the best of me…

  • Charlie Desertly

    “She was very upset to discover…” How could she possibly not have known until she watched the footage?

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    Oh, ok, i guess I can walk around with no pants on then and won’t get arrested because my genitals aren’t actually showing. Cool. I’ll wear a butt flap though so I don’t offend anyone.

  • Charlie Desertly

    What you could or would get arrested for in our society isn’t the be all end all of anything, and I’m sure you know that.

  • Anonymous

    Yet another example of brainless females spouting off based on their opinions rather than facts. I can only think of ONE instance where HBO showed female genitalia, not just pubic hair, and that was one brief glimpse on Real Sex. A number of mainstream movies on HBO and almost every episode of Real Sex included men’s genitals.Of course, females seem incapable of arguing based on facts, not just the things their fat-chick sisterhood tells them to believe.
