Lena Dunham brought her trademark wit and bold sexuality to a campaign ad for Barack Obama that has some conservative pundits in a tizzy.
Dunham's one-minute ad, titled "Your First Time," likens voting to losing one's virginity, and the "Girls" star says she wouldn't have wanted her first time to be with anyone other than Obama.

"Your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. It should be with a guy with beautiful - someone who really cares about and understands women," she says in the ad.
Dunham goes on to say women should want their first time to be with someone who likes birth control, health care, equal pay for women and "beautiful and complicated" weddings for gay and lesbian Americans.
"My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand - before, I was a girl; now I was a woman. I went to the polling station, I pulled back the curtain, I voted for Barack Obama," Dunham says.
The tongue-in-cheek campaign spot received lots of attention online from fans of Dunham, who thought the video was clever and made a unique metaphor about voting in an election.
But some conservative critics say the ad is tasteless and below the moral standards of what America should be.
The Independent Women's Forum released a statement titled, "Obama's First Time Ad Is Utterly Sexist," which claims that Obama "only knows how to speak to one type of woman."
"If the White House thinks all women are this way, this is utterly sexist," said Hadley Heath, the Independent Women's Forum's senior policy analyst. "Would they make an ad like this for men if Michelle were running against Ann Romney? No. Not only do they demean sex, they make women out to be downright silly about it."
