Yes, there’s sex but it’s not the main point.

Parents may be consider this to be a little too sexual but the thing is, nothing extremely graphic is shown. No full frontal nudity, it’s nothing they aren’t learning from their friends anyway. Let’s be honest. I’d be more worried about violence than sex, the violence is pretty graphic and there is lots of swearing but again. Nothing a teenager isn’t already hearing.
