The masturbation anecdote from "Not That Kind of Girl" (October 2014)
Lena Dunham's memoir "Not That Kind of Girl" was controversial enough thanks to the author's $3.7 million advance, but she stirred up further sturm und drang by including a childhood anecdote about masturbating next to her six-years-younger sister, bribing her for kisses, and -- in one unforgettable moment -- inspecting her vagina. Some accused Dunham of bragging about an actual sex crime, but others came to her defense and argued that innocuous sexual experiences are a natural and common part of growing up.
