Not very bad at all!
I am a teen girl who is very responsible and not easily impressed upon, and this game is amazing! It teaches teens and kids about, "Real life," while letting them have fun. It sends positive messages and have positive role models, including, but not limited to, firefighters, doctors, police....The sexual aspect is minimal, reduced to blurry, under-cover rumpling and minimal groaning and giggling. Being a teen, I have known others even younger than I not bothered by this and not impressed by it either. It is not bad at all, nor is it sexually explict or "raunchy." I find it teaches you about the responsibilites of it, what with potential parenthood and bills. You cannot drink, except juice, which cannot make you drunk. You may go to clubs and bars, but besides dancing and in some cases naughty socializing, you cannot ask someone to come to your apartment for some fun, but merely become friends or boyfriend or girlfriend. I think the only way this game could be bad is if you focused on doing bad things, as in real life. I think it is sad that this site rated it 16+, becuase the game really isn't that bad and can be rather educational. It is best for twelve and up, and can be for younger if you are very mature. It is a great game!
