Neil Marshall Game Of Thrones Podcast
WinterIsComing.net has posted a few quotes from the interview:

Marshall further elaborated:
It was pretty surreal. I’d not done anything like that in my films before.

I urge you to do it.” So I was like, “Okay, well, if you— you’re the boss.”
This particular exec took me to one side and said, “Look, I represent the pervert side of the audience, okay? Everybody else is the serious drama side—I represent the perv side of the audience, and I’m saying I want full frontal nudity in this scene.” So you go ahead and do it.
