Lena Dunham is not amused by a porn parody of Girls because the show is feminist at its "core".

Hustler recently revealed a porn parody version of the star's popular HBO sitcom, entitled This Ain't Girls XXX.

The actress immediately tweeted that the thought of the raunchy video "disturbed" her and now she has let followers in on the reasons why.

"Okay, I wracked my brain to articulate why I can't just laugh off a porn parody of Girls and here are 3 reasons:" she posted.

"1. Because Girls is, at its core, a feminist action while Hustler is a company that markets and monetizes a male's idea of female sexuality (sic)."

Girls has often been described as a less glamorous take on Sex and the City and follows a group of four, strong female characters in New York City.

The show is not shy about portraying sex in a realistic, candid way, which brings Lena to her next point.

"2. Because a big reason I engage in (simulated) onscreen sex is to counteract a skewed idea of that act created by the proliferation of porn," she wrote, before adding: "3. Because it grosses me out. (sic)"

Hustler's version focuses on Lena's Girls character Hannah and her on/off boyfriend Adam.

Whereas the 27-year-old may not be keen on the spoof, she did have a laugh at her own expense, jokingly letting fans in on her "porn name".

"It's important to me to be honest about the complexities of having that out in the world. Love, Lena (porn name: Murray Broadway) (sic)" she quipped.
