According to a Business Insider report, sex scandals and political turmoil plague the company, making life at Google a lot like a modern day "Game of Thrones."

The most recent sex scandal involved Sergey Brin, Google's married co-founder, and a younger Google employee, who had previously dated another company executive. But this kind of thing at Google isn't uncommon, according to BI's report.

Google has a "permissive" way of handling relationships between employees, according to the report.

But even though Google employees can't seem to keep their hands off each other, they don't use their physical relationships to gain power within the company. No, to do that they get nasty in a back-stabbing, double-crossing, Judas Iscariot kind of way, according to the report.

Or as one source told Business Insider, employees gain power through "geo-political warfare."

Google didn't respond immediately to an email request by CNBC.com for comment.
