It's Not Sex, It's HBO

July 10, 2008 6:26 PM

Remember last year, when there was much discussion of the nudity in “Tell Me You Love Me,” and questions about whether the sex in the series was simulated?

At this year’s press tour while introducing its version of the British comedy series “Little Britain USA,” HBO warmed up the critics with a clip that featured full-frontal shots of two men in a gym locker room with very small genitalia (probably done with prosthetics). One character even gives the other a bikini shave, lifting his friend’s nubbin to avoid missing a spot.

That was preceded by a scene featuring guest star Rosie O’Donnell that ended with the punch line, “not as disgusting as licking another woman’s vagina.”

Next press tour HBO might be showing off its comedy “Hung.” Are they trying to tell us something?
