In an essay for Lenny Letter called "Our Voices Are Our Superpower," Girls co-show runner Jenni Konner recalled an instance where a producer on another show tried to get Dunham to help him convince an actress to "show her tits, or at least some vag" on TV.

Just because Lena Dunham likes to show her boobies on TV doesn't mean that she thinks everyone should want to show theirs.


The upsetting exchange started when he showed Lena a picture on his phone of "a mutual friend with a cock next to her face, ostensibly a still from his TV show but shown at a completely inappropriate time.” Not surprisingly, their subsequent conversation was disturbing to say the least.
