Did we miss something on diversity?

Pornographic Scenes, NOT for TV 14

For the people commenting that kids 12 if mature enough, or even older kids can watch this show, is very alarming. It seems Pornographic scenes in shows are becoming the new standard for TV 14. This is not a healthy way for our teens to learn about sex. Please pay better attention to what our children are seeing and give more accurate reviews. A concerned parent. Otherwise, the show is interesting, a little on the slow side, but interesting and artistic.
