HBO "Girls" creator Lena Dunham is not the kind of person who would shy away from talking about her "first time." But the "first time" she was talking about in a new video Thursday isn't the one you think she might be talking about.

"Your first time shouldn't be with just anybody, you want to do it with a great guy," she begins. Among her arguments? "You don't want a guy that says, 'hey, I'm at the library studying,' when really he's out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act or who thinks gay people shouldn't have beautiful, complicated weddings of the kind we see on Bravo or TLC all the time," she continues, making it pretty clear that this is about politics. "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, pulled back the curtain; I voted for Barack Obama," the actress concluded in her Obama for America video spot.
