A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The hosts offer advice about sex and relationships, but in a way that's more entertaining and titillating than educational (neither is a professional therapist). They make a point of the fact that the show is open to all races/ethnicities and sexual orientations.
Violence & Scariness
Audience members make occasional references to violence; the couple notes that this behavior isn't acceptable.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Nearly constant sexual innuendo and discussion, including references to various sexual activities and suggestive movements. Crude, sex-related language includes phrases like "adjust my nuts" and conversations about genital size, etc. Words like "dong," "cootchie," and stronger terms are used to describe genitals and sex acts. Scoop wears boxer shorts; the couple sits in bed while hosting the show.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this sex information show -- which started as a popular online series -- is intended for mature audiences. It's full of strong sexual innuendo and discussions about various sexual behaviors, which often include crude/strong language ("ass," "dong," "nuts," "damn"; stronger words, like "f--k" and "p---y," are bleeped) and iffy behavior. It's not the most educational of shows (the hosts aren't therapists and don't offer professional advice), but it does encourage safe sex and welcomes people from all racial/ethnic communities and sexual orientations to participate.
Is It Any Good?
Overall, the series is designed to entertain rather than educate, with Scoop and Shanda offering their unique perspectives on issues ranging from improving various sexual practices to choosing the correct "accessory." While Shanda approaches most questions within the context of love and relationships, Scoop revels in his ability to swear (though most words are fully bleeped) and offer crude commentary about sex acts, genitals, and other topics. Meanwhile, online and studio audiences ask questions that are often intended to titillate or even impress those who are tuning in.
In between the tasteless bits are the more positive moments. Scoop and Shanda clearly state that their personal rules include respecting yourself and your partner and practicing safe sex. They talk about the necessity for communication and compromise to maintain a relationship, and they openly invite people from all racial/ethnic backgrounds and sexualities to participate in their dialogue. Bottom line? Adults who like this sort of thing may find it entertaining or marginally informative, but the series isn't appropriate for kids.
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.
