Needless, explicit depiction of gay porn

Every episode has either what amounts to porn, or random references to it. It gets worse as you progress through the series. I haven't finished it, and probably won't. In addition, there are a lot of references and depictions of a world destroyed by a "flu." A world of masked individuals living drab lives because they do not have a vaccine for their "flu." Very weird. I do not know why common sense media shows this show as "only innuendo." It is incorrect.
