Lena Dunham has stopped wearing nude patches.

Lena Dunham says she doesn't bother covering up for sex scenes on her show, Girls, any more because it's just not practical.

The actress and director revealed people who work on Girls have seen everything there is to see of her naked body, but she doesn't mind.

"I stopped wearing the nude patch after the first season of Girls. There's not one guy who works on that show who hasn't seen the inside of my vagina," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

In a group interview with fellow comedic actresses, including Amy Schumer and Ellie Kemper, she explained a bit more about this modesty-saving device.

"This patch - you glue it over your vagina. It gets sweaty and always falls off. My male co-stars, at the end of the day, don't care," she said.

But the male actors on Girls stay covered up.

"They wear a bag....like a penis bag," she said.

Dunham also cleared up some other misconceptions about those intimate onscreen moments.

"I never understand when people say, `Sex scenes are so mechanical; it doesn't feel like anything.' It feels like someone f***ing you! It's confusing," she said.

Dunham will release the fifth season of Girls next year. The show has been a massive hit and a huge success for Dunham who is the show's creator as well as one of its main stars.

Even with all this success and obvious talent, Dunham still experiences sexism, as she recounted one particularly telling story from the set of her show.

"I heard a guy on my show say into his microphone: `I hate this job. I can't wait to be back on a show where there's a man at the helm'," she said.

"Later, that same guy came up to me at lunch and said, `You're really enjoying that buffet, aren't you'?"

Dunham didn't name the sexist in question but just left one, last cutting remark about him.

"He's the worst person alive. I hope he reads this, which he won't because he's drunk," she said.
