One thing you've no doubt noticed by now, if you're as - ahem - a dedicated viewer as I am, is that Game Of Thrones is not exactly kicking goals when it comes to its ratio of male nudity to female nudity. 

If it's bosoms and anachronistically bare mons pubis you're interested in, then obviously Westeros is the place to be. 

Anything other than the occasional bared male arse - and the torture of Theon Greyjoy most definitely does not count in this argument - more often than not you're just shit out of luck. 

Unless you're a Hodor fan, that is (NSFW for b

rief if impressive footage of Hodor willy): 

This is something, evidently, that troubles even Jon Snow himself. 

Kit Harington, talking to GQ Magazine this month, admitted that when the "baby Crow" bared his bum towards the end of Season 3, it wasn't even his:

"By happenstance he has so far evaded even the little that has been asked of him in this respect. In the show's last season, after Jon Snow has been lured into a cave by the wildling Ygritte and seduced, Harington is seen naked from behind jumping into a rock pool. Except, as it turns out, it wasn't him at all.

"When it came down to it I had a broken ankle," he says, "so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn't my ass."

In the end a vaguely look-alike crewmember stepped in to provide the stunt bum. Lest you think him some sort of prude, however, Harington insists he'd be happy to strip down for the Thrones cameras more often:

"It's only right, if you're going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that."

With just less than two weeks to go, we'll soon find out if Harington disrobes in Season 4. If he doesn't, well, there's always Game Of Bones - even George R. R. Martin has watched that!
