The HBO show, Girls, is in its final season. Created by Lena Dunham, Girls is known for its unabashed nudity and raunchy sex scenes,
But there was one scene that HBO nixed. The show’s producer, Jud Apatow, and Dunham discussed it in an interview with the Holiday Reporter:
Apatow: 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 …
Dunhma: It was actually cum arcing through a shot.
Apatow: And HBO said, “If this is in the show, we could lose our license.” We were like, “Oh my God, we’ve actually found the line at HBO.”
Who knows why that would even be necessary, outside of shock value? Girls is known for pushing TV boundaries, s maybe this would have been another effort at that.
The final season debuts Feb. 12.
