The least sexy sex scene ever just happened on prime time television.

Let’s hope they showered beforehand… And afterwards…

The fourth season of popular and much-talked about feminist television series Girls aired last night and the opening scene was a rather sexualised one. Marnie, a central character…. well, she… How do we put this.

Okay enough faux modesty, we’ll give it to you plain and simple: One of the female leads got her butt licked by a man.

Motor-boated, even.

Everything happening to the left and below of this cropped screen shot was deemed inappropriate…

And she seemed to enjoy it. A lot.

Marnie, the now infamous Girls character, stood over the sink, with her man-friend motor-butting her from behind (if you want to see a video, The Morning After has one). Not even the pile of dirty dishes could distract her from enjoying the ass-munching.

Alison Williams, who plays Marnie in the show, talked to Entertainment Weekly about the… uh…  ‘intimate’scene.

“I had a couple of days talking to wardrobe and makeup to get ready to rig the thing that I wore for the ass motorboating. It was an engineering achievement! I would manufacture it if more than one person a year needed it. [Laughs] It was so elaborate—it involved Spanx that we cut away and glued down and involved menstrual pads and two of those weird thongs. I’ve had to do scenes like this twice now.”

Mmm. Sounds hot.

It’s not the first time an ‘edgy’ TV show has addressed the idea. Sex And The City had a whole episode about ‘tuchus lingus’, as Carrie so aptly named it. The wise ol’ internet also politely calls the act ass-eating and salad-tossing (Why? We don’t know).

We’re not so sure about whether this newfound sexual territory would be particularly safe or enjoyable.

Some thoughts: We wouldn’t touch the peanuts on the bar counter, because we’re too nervous about random faecal matter. Anal-oral contact is surely a bit closer to cholera than anyone would like to be.

Butt But let’s assume every is showered, sanitised and smelling rosy. Would it even be that pleasurable? Motorboating in general seems to be more along the lines of ‘drunken silliness, most often used as a joke’ than ‘yeahhhh baby, jiggle my flesh faster’.

But hey, if everyone involved is free and willing (and clean), then why not?

It gives a whole new meaning to ‘bootylicious’.
