age 17+

Erotica for the NC-17 generation

It is acceptable for people who are age seventeen or above because frontal nudity is nearly 15% of each season and is blurred while rear nudity is slightly higher and is unblurred. The rest of the content kills brain cells instead of activating one's intellect. People who are 17 might find it to be stimulating but when they're much older they will look back on their youth and wish they had not wasted time watching a TV show that was so narrow in its scope of human and sexual expression. Don't show it to anyone who is under the age of 17, especially if your household is traditional and religious. However, if a parent chooses not to allow her children to watch the show even when they are between the ages of 18 and 21, they would be doing the right thing. The show promotes unhealthy ideas about sexuality, and I am not talking about BDSM, role playing, adventure or foreplay. Children should understand that sex between two adults involves a great deal of patience and consideration to be exchanged throughout the process. The show lacks this essential element.

Adults Only Not for Kids I have to say.

I Would see this too. I am an Adult. I can see this but no kids. Explicit Sex Scenes and Female Nudity is used too. Also it's in Las Vegas were it's illegal to do it.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
