X is for X-rated Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones, the HBO series of George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, is now in its 2nd season.  I'm really enjoying it, except for one thing.  Geez, do they have to keep showing naked women?  I know, it is HBO.  And there was a lot of sex and sexual references in the books.  But some of the scenes are really close to soft porn, and most are there for no reason other than to (supposedly) titillate.  It just irritates me because most of the scenes weren't even in the book--or not that I recall anyway.  I'm pretty sure that Joffrey never turned down whores that Tyrion sent to him and then made one beat the other.  It did show his character well, but there's been enough instances of that already.  I won't stop watching because I do love seeing the characters come to life, but I really am getting more irritated the more bare breasts they show.  They could at least show us a few male naked asses--or more--they've been doing full frontals on some of the women, they could at least throw us poor women a bone, too (oh, hahahahah, look at that pun).   But then that would be considered porn probably.  Why is that?  Do men feel demeaned by it, I wonder?  Maybe if they'd do it more often they'd see how women feel about it.
