A woman has banned her boyfriend from watching Game Of Thrones because it features a lot of naked women.
When I first heard about the hit HBO show I was told two things; it’s violent and it features plenty of nudity.
Although this didn’t bother me and the majority of the show’s audience, one woman was taken aback by it, so much so she asked her partner not to watch it anymore.
Describing the show as ‘nothing but tits’, the woman claimed her boyfriend only watches Game of Thrones to look at them.
Calling her out for being jealous, the boyfriend pointed out the woman has made him watch Magic Mike with her before, arguing it was double standards.
The guy shared his story on Reddit posting to the subreddit Relationship Advice, asking people if he ‘was in the wrong’.
So I watch Game Of Thrones. My girlfriend was watching it for the first time last night. I woke up to her ranting about the series saying ‘there’s nothing but tits in the series’.
She then started shitting on me and saying that’s the only reason I watch it. I told her I do not get turned on by that, and then I said ‘you’re getting jealous of me watching a TV series’.
She said ‘no, I’m jealous of the tits’. Also, she have made me watch Magic Mike with her before, so I thought she was pushing some double standard. She won’t talk to me now. Am I in the wrong here?
The post went viral receiving over 2,000 comments at time of writing (May 4), and there was no debating the guy was in the right.
Shocked by the girlfriend’s reaction, one person reassured the man:
I will never understand this kind of petty jealousy in relationships, especially if the relationship is otherwise healthy and secure. I think part of it is that I’m just not a jealous person so I don’t get it. But me and my fiancé watch GoT together and actively discuss who’s hottest. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
She needs to grow up. Do not cave in or alter your behaviour for this. Do not humour this. Or where does it end? No female friends, that’s where it ends. If she’s jealous, that’s her problem.
Others in the comments shared similar stories, with one guy admitting his girlfriend made him delete the game Rust due to it featuring nudity.
