HBO show "Game of Thrones" has impacted the career of its cast members, but, that's not all it has done.

For Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark on "Game of Thrones," the show served as her sex education.

Turner, who was 12 when she auditioned for the role and 15 when the show premiered, revealed that she heard about oral sex for the first time while reading a 'GOT' script.

“I’d be doing a read-through and we’d be talking about very graphic stuff,” the now 21-year-old said in an interview with The Sunday Times.

“The first time I ever found out about oral sex was from reading the script. I was like ‘Wow! People do that? That’s fascinating!”

 “I guess that was my sex education. Being on Game Of Thrones," she adds.

The popular HBO show has often come under attack for its graphic depiction of nudity, sex, women and violent scenes.

In season five, Sansa Stark was raped by her husband, leading to US senator Claire McCaskil demanding for a boycott.

Following the season six premiere in 2016, Cinema Blend asked Pornhub for their 'Game of Thrones' statistics, which is a popular search on the pornography site.

According to the porn site, throughout April, searches containing "Game of Thrones" were slightly above average, but shot up in the days before the season six premiere, peaking at 370% on day of premiere.

"Game of Thrones" returns for a seventh season on July 16, 2017.
