Sexposition is a critical term coined by blogger and television critic Myles McNutt. It is a portmanteau of the terms "sex" and "exposition" as well as a pun on "sex position" , referring to the use of sexual scenes to deliver information to the viewer about the backstory and character motivations. It has become a popular term amongst viewers and has been used by the producers of the series themselves. Myles McNutt used the phrase to specifically respond to nudity on Game of Thrones , though it has since been applied retroactively to other shows IE: HBO's own The Sopranos , which often gave exposition scenes in a strip club. McNutt himself, however, did not necessarily mean "sexposition" to have negative connotations. As McNutt explained, it is an example of how "sexposition" can be used to successfully inform the audience about a character, saying: "The Littlefinger sequence is an interesting one in that it has clear thematic implications on his view of power, on the idea of Littlefinger as the prostitute of the government , always able to convince others that they are in control when it's really a charade.
