You know you've found "the one" if they can give you an orgasm?

Funny and witty movie that could be very influential for teens. This movie romanticizes teen sexual behavior. Frequent straight and gay sex is treated as the norm for these teens. Parents are mostly absent. And the main message-- the only way you know you've found "the one" is if they can give you an orgasm? As an adult, I was very entertained, but I couldn't help thinking how destructive this could be to teens who think this is how they need to be to fit in.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
