Alan Cumming Puts HBO's Girls On Blast For Unprotected Sex!

Alan Cumming has a problem with Girls! And it's too much unprotected sex!

During a recent discussion about AIDS at the 92nd Street Y, the Good Wife star pointed specifically at Lena Dunham's critical darling as a show that has too much promiscuity.

Alan thinks the media should be more conscientious with the way it shows condom use as a way to stop the spread of disease. He says:

"We’ve got to try and stop this cavalier attitude that it’s in the past. It’s not."

But is Girls really the right target for Alan's admonishment? The show has at least mentioned condoms a few times over its two seasons- more than many shows that depict sex on the regular.

But maybe Alan thinks more would be better?

Girls seems to pride itself on its HONEST depiction of sexuality, what with the awkwardness and lack of passion. The follies of fumbling with protection could potentially be something to play with in future episodes.

Does HBO's Girls show too much unprotected sex? What do U think?

    Of Course it does but almost every tv show and movie doesn't have any condom use. I find it funny that the government and family groups are quick to point out that the Adult film industry doesn't use condoms but not all these romantic comedies. We may not realize it but the media shapes our view of sex and relationships.

    Lena Dunham's character had sex with a sketchy drug addict and I don't recall her using a condom. Considering how influential our visual stimulants are, I'd say Alan Cummings is right.

    It's a liberal fad show based in NYC..I guess I know why 1 in 4 New Yorkers have an STD LOL

    But on that note, not every single thing needs to be shown in movies, such as action stars reloading their weapons, it's a fictional shows for the sole purpose of entertainment. They shouldn't need to be "responsible" or educate people.
