    [h=1]Judd Apatow Reveals His Penis Rule — '5 Seconds Yes, 20 Seconds No' — and Talks About 'Girls' Sex Scenes Banned by HBO[/h] 5:52 PM PDT 3/18/2014 by Tim Appelo

    [h=2]Apatow says HBO warned "We literally could lose our license"; he also defends President Obama's Funny or Die appearance and discusses his cult classic "Freaks and Geeks."[/h] HBO refused to allow executive producers Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham to film controversial sex scenes that might have included a male erection onscreen, Apatow told students at Loyola Marymount University on March 12.


    "There have been things on Girls where HBO has said to us, 'If we put this on TV, we literally could lose our license to broadcast,' the filmmaker said. In one particular case, "Let's just say it's something you see in adult film. Elements of sexual intercourse. The high points of sexual intercourse."
    He said he understood why the sex scene was forbidden, though he did not elaborate on the particulars of the scene and when it would have been shown on Girls, now in its third season. "Cause then you're home watching HBO, you watch Hope Floats, then you see that on Girls. It's good. It's all good. And I understand that. But that's our job is to try to figure out where the line is." In his past work, he said, "We've experimented with the limits of what people can handle. We've had a male organ in movies. We found out that 20 seconds of someone naked is probably too much, and people will leave the theater if you have full frontal nudity for an extended period of time. But if you make it five seconds they'll laugh and say it was great. So basically that's the ratio of how much penis people can handle in a movie. Five seconds yes, 20 seconds no. We're always going too far and then deciding where the line is."

    Girls is a horrible show and yes ive never seen it, but I am 100% accurate. You arent the voice of a generation because you are a fat, pasty, untalented cunt who gets naked.

    "OMG SHES SO BRAVE, SHES NAKED!" We get it bitch. Youre fat and naked and there arent a lot of fat naked women on TV.

    They should ban that Dunham pig's gunt. Or at least give us Allison Williams full frontal at the end of each episode to make up for it.

    Doesn't he realize that with the invention of streaming porn, watching simulated sex scenes on hbo has lost much of it's allure.

    Particularly when it involves ugly overweight women
