To prepare for the release of her advice-filled book on September 30, Lena Dunham has joined the ranks of celebrity role models like Amy Poehler and launched her own YouTube channel where she dispenses advice to young(er) girls.

Ok, now that the trolls are gone, here’s a selection from Dunham’s 12-part advice series, offering genuine and heartfelt advice based on her own experiences with bullies, OCD, sex (good and bad), death, jealousy, dressing provocatively, being loud, and other quintessentially Lena Dunham-esque topics.
