Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

I think everyone here missed the scene where a woman's breasts were shown, while she was riding on a male character. The scene continues to portray her nude body while she dresses up.

Very sexually explicit

I get the feeling CSM must have only caught a couple episodes because this is a very sexually explicit series with nudity and graphic sex in a number of episodes (as has become commonplace in so-called "adult" storytelling in the 2010s, sadly). The "sex" meter should be ramped up to 5 because someone going into this might not expect this level of explictness from something being promoted as a comedy series. As for letting kids watch ... well, if you're OK with children watching "Girls", "Shameless" or "Orange is the New Black", have at 'er, I guess.
