Race to the Bottom

Drudge linked to this article at Entertainment Weekly describing an incident where "Girls" exec producer Judd Apatow apparently went into an apoplectic fit when asked why there was so much nudity in the program.
In the moment, Dunham [the "star" of the show] herself spoke clearly about her position on the nudity, saying it is “a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive. But I totally get it. If you’re not into me, that’s your problem and you’re going to have to work that out with professionals,” she retorted. And later, fellow EP Jenni Konner interrupted her response to another question to add, “I literally was spacing out because I’m in such a rage spiral about that guy,” she said pointing to the question-asker. “I was just looking at him looking at him and going into this rage [over] this idea that you would talk to a woman like that and accuse a woman of showing her body too much. The idea it just makes me sort of sick.” 
In all, Apatow said the nudity on the show, which was renewed during the panel, is a function of the lives they believe the characters lead and he credited Dunham’s courage to shed it all in the name of authenticity.
 Well, having a bowel movement is natural and realistic. Will Dunham show that as well?
