This week on the "L Word" we learn that Angelenos really enjoy public nudity and sex.O really?

Well, all the ladies get frisky in the episode called "Lagrimas de Oro:"
Tina has hot pregnant lesbian sex with the new Euro-vixen in town, Helena Peabody (who looks and sounds like Nigella Lawson without all the lusty-busty-wench-wear), in the pool at the Chateau Marmont. We thought that doesn't happen anymore. Speaking of public trysts, it seems to be the thing to feature on TV these days; Fat Actress included scenes of gay men in Miatas gathered at a private parking lot in Griffith Park.

The W Hotel (and L Word corporate " promotional partner") becomes a trysting site for Kit and her new amour while Dana gets her heart broken in San Diego. And can we take a moment to debate Jenny's haircut? Does this mean that she's jumped off the bi-sexual fence and declared herself or is she just channeling a very confused Mia Farrow during her "Rosemary's Baby"-phase.

All we've got to say is that Jenny simply must lose those lace-doily dresses. The look didn't work for Winona in "Reality Bites" and it's too early for an early '90s revival.

We're especially amused by the Fashion Showcase feature on the L Word site, that lets you buy clothes sported by the characters. This is how they describe Jenny's fashion sense "STYLE PROFILE:

Jenny likes to visit all her selves; sometimes waif, sometimes vixen. She is spotted regularly wearing Vintage dresses punctuated with hot pumps, slouchy boy-pants and a comfy cardigan. She is a story in the telling, an ending waiting to be written...

Now YOU can have her look."

Uh, barf!
