[quote quote=6577]I think the viewers who are there for the story not primarily the sex, and who dislike the objectification, are getting drowned out/are pulling back from social media concerning the show (I know I have). Thus the voices of the fans who are into the sex/objectification become more magnified as they reflect back to Starz, which in turn encourages Starz to up their game. It has become a classic feedback loop.[/quote]

Yes, this is exactly what I was trying to put my finger on. It does seem to have become an ever-escalating cycle of titillate and be titillated. And there does seem to be a faction of fans who are enjoying that. More power to them. I personally feel that it’s underselling the show.
