Awesome but brooding and sexual

The site claims no nudity, which is true, but there is a very raw up close sex scene with a married woman committing adultery. It goes on about 3-5 seconds. It shows both of their bare upper bodies with no nudity. They talk about it afterwards also. It leaves no place for imagination.
