Sasha Grey sparks bush backlashSasha Grey in a still from "Entourage"

Sasha Grey made my day — and I don’t just say that to rhyme, I swear. Apparently, the porn star appeared naked on last night’s “Entourage” and caused quite the commotion among the show’s dude-bro contingent. Not because she was naked on-camera (which is, mind you, a relatively common occurrence) but because she went naked with a full-on bush (which is also a relatively common occurrence for her, actually). Judging from the resulting hysteria on Twitter, it was the Pube-pocalypse. Behold, a few of the standout tweets:

Yea she had a sicko BUSH

Sasha Grey had an ENORMOUS fucking 70s bush. WTF

That shit was so uncalled for

Sasha Grey really should shave her bush

Entourage was wild. So was Sasha Grey’s bush. #EW

did anyone else think that was disgusting. ITS 2010!

I love it: How dare she not shave — it’s 2010 for crying out loud! The outrage, the offense, the disgust! Who knew a woman’s body in its natural form could so disturb such aggressively heterosexual dudes? Well, Sasha Grey, for one. The no-hair look was made popular by porn, as the biggest porn star of the moment is no doubt aware. These dismayed tweeters aside, a little pubic hair obviously hasn’t hurt her career (in porn or mainstream Hollywood films). It’s also a large part of what got people buzzing about her (NSFW) American Apparel ad in 2008 (because we all know nudity alone is hardly enough to make a Dov Charney photoshoot stand out). As the porn industry has defined the hairless norm, it’s also paved the way for a new, titillating taboo: bush! Funny how that works.

Without further ado, I’ll leave you with Grey’s admirable tweet in response to all the haters: “A lot of bush comments after tonight’s #Entourage episode. If you’re curious…that’s what a grown woman looks like. Besides, I shave where it counts ↓ I’m happy to contribute to making it ok again:) All ‘fashions’ have their cycles!”
