Girls who like boys who like boys?

Lena Dunham, creator and star of the controversial HBO series Girls, recently shared her Top 10 Favorite Films for the Criterion Collection. At #4 on her list is Weekend, out British filmmaker Andrew Haigh’s festival favorite about two gay men who meet at a London nightclub and spend the next 48 hours having sex, sharing their stories, and baring their souls.

Lena, who once said that she wouldn't get married "until all gay people can get married," writes of the 2011 film:

This just wrecked me. I went in knowing nothing except that gay men are my target demo and came out stunned by the subtlety and sensitivity of Andrew Haigh’s direction.

This is also what inspired me to show ejaculate on television: there is one scene in which cum is such a central, and lovely, part of the experience of sex with another person.

Messy, happy, lonely sex.

As for that ejaculate, out Weekend star Chris New told Advocate.com that "the semen itself was just good old-fashioned hand soap. So now everybody can try it. You too can recreate that moment at home!"
