Great Drama, but too much sex and inappropriate for teens

I only watched the first 4 episodes but found the sex was a major part of the show. With in those episode there is a topless woman with side-boob, bare back, and buttox shown. In this scene a woman new to the military base, Abby Issacs, is looking into the window of a neighbor and sees the woman having come out of a shower. Abby seems mesmerized watching this neighbor in a way a man would look at a woman. This may be the prelude to the lesbian relationship mentioned by other reviewers. When Abby talks to another wife, she is told that the men stop having sex with their wives over time do to enjoy it while she can. Later in the show a man is talking to the base doctor about insomnia and the doctor ask health questions including the topic of the man becoming impotent and checks the man with a radiation meter before he leaves. Appears exposure to uranium cause the men to become impotent on the base. There is a sex scene between a husband and wife, no nudity, but realistic thrusting and groaning. I watched using the Hulu App which lists the rating as TV-14, but the language and sexual content I saw in the first 4 episodes felt like it should be TV-MA, and from other parent reviews it seems it just gets more inappropriate.

Sex, boobs, lesbians, point blank gun murders and more. We abandoned it after episode 7. Recommend avoiding. Also, warning/note: Common sense media only usually review the first episode in a series.
