HBO Girls cast Lena Dunham Thinks Girls Porn Parody is Gross

The Cast of HBO’s Girls

This past Wednesday, Hustler wrapped filming on its latest porn parody This Ain’t Girls XXX, a porn parody of HBO‘s Girls.

In the porn parody, Hannah Horvath (played by Alex Chance) forsakes men, including her boyfriend Adam, to experiment with lesbian sex. After some lesbian sex, she returns to Adam. Please note that if this happens in the next season of Girls, the show has officially jumped the shark.

And yesterday, Lena Dunham took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the news that her semi-autobiographical, hit TV show was getting remade into a porn movie. 

She wrote:

It makes sense that Hustler would want to make a Girls porn parody because there’s sex in the show. Trying to think excuses for two or more characters to have sex isn’t easy to do, so when sex and sexual themes are provided in the source material it’s a dream come true.

When I first heard that Hustler was doing a Girls porn parody, I immediately thought of Adam Sackler and Shiri Appleby‘s sex scene from last season.

People weren’t sure if they were witnessing the first-ever TV-rape or TV-cumshot. Either way, this sex scene is not erotic or arousing in any way. It’s disturbing because Adam behaves in an aggressive manner that’s only really shown in pornography.

I’ve heard people (mostly feminists) describe cumshots as aggressive and humiliating to women before, but I had trouble seeing it from that perspective because it’s never really framed that way in porn videos (I’m not counting bukkake videos by the way because that’s just plain crazy and gross). However, after watching this scene I realized that it is aggressive and humiliating though we’re not shown that in porn videos. This is how pornographic sex exists in the real world and this is exactly the skewed idea of sex created by the proliferation of porn and  that Lena Dunham was tweeting about.

“When I first started kissing boys,” she told Frank Bruni, “I remember noticing things, certain behaviors, where I thought, ‘There’s no way you learned that anywhere but on YouPorn.com. There’s no way any teenage girl taught you and reinforced that behavior.’”

I thought maybe that meant we would never see a Girls porn parody because of how the show has juxtaposed pornographic sex with real intimate sex. But hey, I guess I was wrong.

Obviously, Lena Dunham has every right to be perturbed by this porn parody because the show is more or less about how damaged Millennial’s views on sex and relationships in part due to pornography but also iPhone…probably…

Male pornstar Richie Calhoun (who plays Adam in the porn parody) told Xbiz, “I tried to make [the sex] as weird as possible. I tried to say really weird things and do really weird positions. Well, not that weird.”

The emphasis on “that” makes me wonder if Richie Calhoun is saying the sex in the porn parody is not as weird as some fetish pornography that’s out there or if it’s not as weird as some of the sex that has been featured on Girls.

I really hope that he means in comparison to the sex that’s been on Girls because as Drew Grant of the Observer pointed out, “… there is a strange reversal of the norm going on here, with the pornography trying to market itself as less transgressive than the original series.”

If that is the case then Lena Dunham should view the porn parody as a huge accomplishment for the show. Her nuanced approach to sex will have dumbfounded the marketing and monetization of a male’s idea of female sexuality.

Right?

In the end, it’s all Rule 34: If it exists, there’s a porn version of it.

Nothing much else you can do about it. We’ll just have to watch the Girls porn parody when it comes out to fully form an opinion.

I do think it’s cool that Alex Chance is playing Hannah Horvath. She’s a total babe and starring in this porn parody will likely get her a lot of attention.

Way to go Alex Chance!
