The Sex Scene HBO Said "No" to in 'Girls'

Girls is known to push the boundaries with their nudity and sex scenes.  Lena Dunham was always comfortable with the explicit scenes, but it was actually HBO that actually said 'No' to one scene.

Producer, Judd Apatow explained that they finally found the line that HBO will not cross. He explained,  "From the beginning, we were aware that what we were doing was sexually provocative, and that's what made it interesting and new and fun. Lena wanted to reveal something that is normally hidden — so often you're not talking about a giant part of most people's lives because people don't want to portray it on film — and that opened up tons of stories that you're usually not able to tell. But then we had a scene with a conclusion shot… "

Dunham interrupted, "It was actually c*m arcing through a shot." 

Apatow continued saying that HBO was worried they would lose their license because of that scene and decided to pull it out...Uh no pun intended. 

Being the genius creators that they are, Dunham and Apatow figured a different way to fit in the c*m shot into a scene without being too explicit and crossing the line.

Girls is set to premier its final season February 21 on HBO.
