Lena Dunham in Vogue's February 2014 Issue

On the Sex Scenes in Girls

"There was a sense that I and many women I knew had been led astray by Hollywood and television depictions of sexuality," Dunham says. "Seeing somebody who looks like you having sex on television is a less comfortable experience than seeing somebody who looks like nobody you've ever met . . . I want people ultimately, even if they're disturbed by certain moments, to feel bolstered and normalized by the sex that's on the show."
