Lena Dunham was recently the subject of a seriously creepy Craigslist ad, which discussed porn and some very in-depth details about her college years. Brooklyn Magazine was first to discover the Missed Connections post, calling it "fan fiction," although the Observer speculated that the author was Dunham's Oberlin ex-boyfriend.
Either way, the open letter contains some fairly disturbing content, all directed to "Lena Dunham's Dick." The whole thing is a bit too long-winded for posting here, but we can tell you that things get rather graphic, as in this delightful excerpt:
To get you out of my head, I stripped to my boxers and watched porn. But I couldn't get it up. No matter what I watched.
There are also parts that are listlessly romantic ... or perhaps just a nice reprieve from the overtly sexualized nature of the rest of the post:
You know me. With girls like that I generally talk too much, or keep looking sideways to hide my nose. But something happened that night. Maybe the bartender put something in my drink. All I know is that I entered a trance-like state. The usual desperation that I emit like cartoon stink lines gave way to an easy confidence. My jokes landed. My stories charmed. My eyes made contact. I even listened in a way that made her feel heard. It was amazing. For a few short hours, I was the guy I always wanted to be. I wish you could’ve seen it.
If you asked me what we talked about, though, I couldn’t tell you. That’s how in the zone I was. But then she touched my knee and said–
– Do you watch Girls?
Now, that's poetry.
