A father should never see someone eat his daughter's ass



Let's get this out in the open right away - I am as far removed from the definition of the word 'prude' as the average human being can be.  You won't find me in underground S&M clubs or even a strip bar, but I am the guy who if I meet the people who are into those places will clap them on the back and emphatically yell, "good for you!"

Now that we've got that out of the way, let's talk about the thing that created the title to this article.

'Girls' is one of the most popular pieces of women's television on the tube right now because *insert song & dance routine here about a show featuring real women being real women or something of that ilk - "wooo" Lena Dunham etc*  the show took an unexpected turn for its new premiere when it featured a scene where Allison Williams recieves analingus from one of her co-stars (NSFW gif of the scene here).

Um, I'm not going near analingus as a practice (whatever floats yer boat peoples)... because that's not my issue.

My issue is that a premiere party was held that included a screening of the episode, and among its guests were Allison... and her dad Brian Williams.

Yeah. Daddy-dearest went along to watch daughter-dearest get her ass eaten out, oops, sorry, ACT like she was getting her ass eaten out.  Cause, that's... better?  Right?

Look, this isn't a gender thing. If my son grows up to be an actor and he does a scene where he eats ass or receives ass eating or even just acts out an ordinary sex scene - I don't need to see that.  I might even go to a screening and be incredibly proud of the acting and his career, but I'd also say, "Hey son, can you warn me when your shag scene is going to occur so I can close my eyes and picture a therapy-free alternate universe until it is over?  Thanks, love you and all your work."

If you find that to be reasonable you might be saying, "Well, maybe that's what Brian did?"  I'm going to include an interview between the people at Girls and Vulture below and let me assure you, daddy was wide-eyed for the experience and proud.

Anyway that's how I feel about a dad watching his kid's sex scene.  What do you think?  Would you be okay with a parent watching you 'perform' on screen?  Would you want to watch your kid in a performance like this?  Or would either of those scenarios just creep you the hell out?

Interview with Vulture:
Allison Williams: Because of my wiring, I read it in the script and I went into total action mode. I got everyone together and I was like, “All right, Grace [in wardrobe], you and me — we’re going to come up with something so ingenious that he is going to feel comfortable.” I mean, think about where he is, right! It was our first day back of shooting and it was my birthday — everything was happening. I grabbed the makeup girl and said, “I want to smell like a cake,” so we put vanilla cream everywhere so everything smells good. And then I’m like, “Grace, we’re going to rig something invisible from the side but that feels like a pillow when he puts his face into it.” And, that’s what we did! You wouldn’t know; it’s total TV magic. (In Entertainment Weekly, she explained further: "It was so elaborate — it involved Spanx that we cut away and glued down and involved menstrual pads and two of those weird thongs."
How do you tell your family. Are you like, “Dad, sit this one out”?No, also because of my wiring, I was like, “Any advice? What do you guys think in terms of what adhesive I should use?” I got some advice from my parents, because they too are veterans of the show, so their thinking has changed as well. I’d get a call from my mom and she’d be like, “Maybe if you took a thong and cut it away from the sides but you stuck it on in the front and the back it could work.” I was like, “Mom, I like your thinking.” Just your regular dinner conversation! We’re changing as a family; it’s lovely. 
Brian Williams: She’s always been an actress. For us, watching her is the family occupation and everybody has to remember it’s acting, no animals were harmed during the filming, and ideally nobody gets hurt. 
Lena Dunham and Jenni KonnerJK: When we were shooting that, I said I thought we had done all of the funny, crazy sex we could do, but … Part of that was improv on Ebon’s part, and we died laughing.
: Allison was a good sport.
: She was game — a down girl. She’s a serious actress and she takes it all seriously. She was brilliant.
: Let me tell you this, when someone puts their face in your butt, whether there’s a barrier or not, their face is still in your butt. And she handled that with aplomb.
: Even when someone you love puts their face in your butt, it might be weird!  
Ebon Moss-Bachrach: I hope this is okay to say, but honestly I think this scene comes about by Lena saying, “How can I put Allison through the ringer?" "How can I tighten the screws on Allison?” I think Lena gets a kick out of that, Lena does. 
Zosia Mamet: 
We know that Lena and our writers would never, ever make us do anything that didn’t serve the purpose of the story, so whenever she writes something that’s uncomfortable or scary, we just roll up our sleeves and we can’t wait to do it for her and for our show. It’s not just, you know, a little eatin’ out from behind. It matters! 
Jemima Kirke: I sat behind Allison and her dad in the first season [premiere] and I was going to puke; I was so nervous. I don’t even know him, but can you imagine [with this]?! Watching a kissing scene with my dad next to me is awful, let alone with you getting — whatever that’s called — motorboated in your ass!
Alex Karpovsky: Yeah! Let’s do it! Let’s go there! Let’s explore all the cavities. Yeah, 2015 is the Butt Year. There is some type of sexual revolution happening, and maybe that’s one of the cliffs or peaks that we need to begin to incorporate into our societal representation of this revolution, specifically in television. This could be the year of the anus.
