gratuitous female nudity and violence

I watched first two episodes because i thought the stortyline was good, but unfortunately the violence is too much and the exploitative female nudity is uncomfortable to watch with my wife! AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH EPISODE IT SAYS QUOTE”THIS PROGRAMME CONTAINS VIOLENCE” at at no point did it mention nudity, so be warned for those who can’t cope! You see Kevin Bacons nude chest, but it is mainly his girlfriend you see totally naked riding him from his viewpoint, for a few minutes, whilst snorting coke. Another time he goes down on her, whilst the camera is focusing on a close up of her nipples!!!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
