One of the greatest films ever made, Blue Velvet is a romantic, disturbing work of art that’s a must watch for any mature teen and up. The film features a couple of scenes of lovemaking with nudity, although consensual, romantic and not graphic. There’s some weird fetish stuff going on too (slapping), so be forewarned. Even then, it’s not too bad for older teens provided they like thinking movies.
Your kids don't need to be sheltered from everything.
While I understand that it is a parental instinct to protect you child, there is no need to hide them from everything.
Your child isn't as innocent as you think.
Kids grow up fast these days.
Teens here all sorts of language, teens have sex, they see the drinking/drug taking in society.
You just have to trust that you raised them to make sensible choices.
Long story short, its a good movie. Your kids won't be as shocked as you think.
I can see how this could be very confusing for young adults who are not sexually aware due to the rape/ fetish scenes. Wouldn't even watch this with a young person in earshot to be honest due to the sexual violence.
