J.Lo ain’t no ho

Ben fronts for Jennifer. Plus: McConaughey pushes the naked bongo workout.

Topics: Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Arnold Schwarzenegger,

Don’t tell Ben Affleck that chivalry is dead.

The actor is doing everything he can — short of take out another full-page ad in the trade mags — to buttress his fiancée’s shaky reputation with the masses. It seems Affleck just can’t understand why Jennifer Lopez, the woman he so publicly loves to love, is someone so many people love to hate.

In Affleck’s opinion, all those J.Ho jokes and rumors about Lopez’s diva-ish ways are just … not … fair.

“She’s deeply misunderstood … in my opinion,” he says in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.

Never mind the hanky dresses and the booty accentuation, those two split-second marriages and the long-term relationship with Puffy: Affleck sees Lopez as much more Madonna (not that Madonna) than whore.

“In the physical sense, she’s extremely chaste,” the man who once dated Gwyneth insists. “She is characterized as oversexed. I mean, the woman’s had five boyfriends in her whole life!”

And another thing Affleck will have us know, Lopez is not some spoiled Hollywood creature. Oh no.

“When Jennifer was starting out in the business, she wasn’t told she was superhuman. No one told her the world was her oyster because she was a Latino woman with a figure different than Kate Moss,” he told reporters during a press conference for his film “Daredevil.” “As a result, she learned to trade on her incredible work ethic. Everything she has, she got by herself. Unfortunately, this has been confused with naked ambition and I can tell you that certainly is not the case.”

Oh, and she’s brave, too.

Lopez, not he, “is always the one who goes downstairs to check if we hear a noise during the night,” he says.

Save it for the vows, Ben.

Beat this

Matthew McConaughey apparently doesn’t need anyone — including Ben Affleck — to apologize for that pot-fueled naked bongo session the police busted in on back in 1999.

He’s not ashamed of the smudges on his character. Not at all.

In fact, he apparently still enjoys a little semi-public nudity now and then. According to Entertainment Tonight, his “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” costar Kate Hudson and her husband, Chris Robinson, found him naked and howling at the moon during a visit to a remote cottage owned by Hudson’s mom, Goldie Hawn.

And he’s still a fan of the occasional bongo session.

“That’s a great form of exercise,” he tells the Toronto Sun. “Dancing and loving were the first original forms of exercise, long before any gymnasium was built. And I reckon more people ought to be getting in shape that way.”

Naked aerobics? Not at my gym, thank you.

He’ll be back

“He’s looking forward to just getting back to work and being able to work out.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s publicist, Jill Eisenstadt, on her buff client’s progress after surgery for a torn rotator cuff, to the Associated Press.

What Trista didn’t know

Recently rejected “Bachelorette” contestant Greg S. Todtman is acting like a star already.

The 28-year-old New Yorker was reportedly nabbed by John F. Kennedy airport personnel on Friday and accused of trying to smuggle cocaine aboard a flight en route to Los Angeles.

ABC spokesman Kevin Brockman has insisted that Todtman wasn’t carrying cocaine, but rather a sleeping pill for which he lacked a prescription.

“He said the last few days have been such a whirlwind for him, that all he wanted to do was get on the plane, take the pill and go to sleep,” Brockman told the Associated Press.

Winona, have we got a bachelor for you.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
