    Hey fellow Fapstronauts

    This is definitely not a spoiler

    Actually, I wasn't a GOT fan and I didn't even watch any episode until very recently. I started watching it and I got 'hooked'. Not because it's interesting or stuff like that, rather because of the sex scenes. I even caught myself a few times 'craving' for those scenes and fantasizing on some characters. I will definitely stop watching that, my journey is more important.
    Does anyone ever face such situations? What did you do about that?
    We can even widen the subject to every sex scenes in series, movies

    Sure - I don't watch. I honestly don't see the difference between P and "mainstream" tv/movies with S scenes.

    Then let me enlighten you. One is designed for nothing but to make you cum and the other is telling you a story where the sex is nothing but a tool to help make the story richer and more believable.

    I disagree. I mean, yeah, obviously mainstream media is more focused on telling rich stories, but in the end - including such inappropriate scenes comes from a widely-popular and growing social mindset of cheapening and destroying all that is pure and intimate between two individuals, specifically married couples.

    If it sounds like some weird conspiracy theory - it's not. Both divorce rates and single-parenthood rates are rising because the whole concept of marriage purity is being trampled.

    "Oh, but stories are now more believable!" Please, is that really how you justify watching that trash? Is that how you justify watching more P and trashing your mind even more? Because the acting is better?

    By far not all sex scenes in let's say GoT are cheap whore fucking. A lot of them portray the highlight of a relationship between two characters which has been build up over several episodes. Don't see how that is destroying anything.
    Depends on who you're listening to. There's a large portion of our generation that still very much believes in marriage and yearns for traditional values. Also, how can you not separate a show your watching from your own life? And if you think that R-rated shows "corrupt" society and make it a less awesome place for you to live in I have to tell you that you should let go of that paranoia because it's a) not useful to think that way and b) isn't true for everybody.
    I don't watch Porn anymore. And yes, that's how I justify watching these shows. They are more believable when you see characters have sex. Because sex is part of the human experience and a real story will make use of the full span of human experiences. What a show like GoT clearly does. Again, it's an element within the story. Nobody watches GoT because of the sex scenes, what are you going to jerk off to 9 seconds of naked flesh? Might as well watch proper porn.

    I think you're trying to reverse us back to the 19th and 20th century where sex was a taboo subject and men and women couldn't talk about it without turning fire red. You really think that's more mature? I think we should be able to talk about sex, make fun about sex and tell stories about sex, without becoming all confused about what's important in life.

    I'm not saying it should be taboo, I'm saying the approach has to be way more level-headed and respectful.

    For starters, not making fun of it, as you say.
    Look, I'm Jewish. By us, matters of intimacy, called "Beino l'beina" - Hebrew for "between him and her", are discussed one-on-one or else in very small groups (3-5 people at most) - because you're actually right - larger groups can lead someone to becoming light-headed and light-hearted towards the matter. Smaller groups discuss it seriously.

    I never really have problems with sex scenes in TV Movies and Games as the rest of the TV Movie or Game will distract me from the sex afterwards.

    Gee, aren't you special! :O
    Don't have a problem with your believes and I'm not going to argue against them. Tradition is tradition. But if you want to talk generally about sex, portrayal of sex and sex talk in society, I would say making fun of it is important. Just because you make fun of it doesn't mean you take away your ability to have a special time with someone. It just means that you're not afraid of the subject. Sometimes we get too serious about sex which has bad consequences. Like jealousy, awkwardness during sex, fear of bad performance and disconnect with your partner. I've felt all of those things before and when I can make fun of myself or my partner or a specific sex act, it's liberating and brings us closer together. Laughing makes you relaxed and when you relax you give others around you permission to relax as well. It's a beautiful thing and sex should be a part of that imho.

    I have PMO'ed to sex scenes from mainstream movies/TV series a lot more than I have to porn because those are a lot more realistic. Those are a bigger turn-on for me than those unrealistic/fake sexual acts we call porn. Now that I'm trying to heal from my addiction and aiming for a major streak, I avoid those as much as I can.

    It's possible that shows like GoT etc are pushing for more realistic sex scenes because of the 'normalisation' of sex on screen caused by how much P is available and consumed by the average person.

    But I don't really have a problem with it because I don't think that it would be damaging to the average person. Even if they find it arousing and exciting, it won't result in them seeking out P and binging for hours on end. If you are an addict, like me, you have to make certain sacrifices (at least temporarily), and if GoT is a trigger for you, best to avoid it. You are unlikely to be able to see these scenes as neutral rather than P-substitutes for a while, just like an alcoholic is unlikely to be able to enjoy a half-glass of wine with lunch without it resulting in a binge. It'll come in time. But not yet.

    I am in favour of censorship/banning of porn, but I don't want a return to a Victorian/early 20th Century prudishness. I don't want to live in a society that bans Joyce/Lawrence, as ours used to, or even erotic films/TV, as great art can be made about sex just as much as any other subject.

    After all I've seen, I'll stop watching GoT. For me, all the sex scenes are just triggers and my recovery worths more than a series.
    However, I do think that sex in mainstream medias isn't to be banned. We just have an addiction to some unhealthy sexual behaviors, sex isn't the problem. Moreover
    Sex is inherently something beautiful. We all just need to adjust our relationship with it
