In an interview published last week, the Daily Beast asked Dormer about HBO's "boobs mandate" and whether she agreed that "the show could use some more dick in there--for symmetry."

Dormer replied:

Well, during the first season Alfie, Richard, and several of the men got naked--although not all the way. I suppose it's just the rules of broadcast television, isn't it? I think Thrones has been better than your average show with the equality, but they could definitely ramp it up! Absolutely.

In calling for more male nudity, Dormer joins fellow cast members Sibel Kekilli (Shae) and Carice van Houten (Melisandre), who expressed similar sentiments earlier this year. Finn Jones, who plays Margaery's gay brother, Ser Loras Tyrell, says he wants his character to have more "hot gay sex," and Kit Harington (John Snow) told GQ in March that he'd be willing to bare it all onscreen.

Hey, Game of Thrones producers: are you listening?
