Mature content but really good!
So I'm 14 but I watch this anyways. I didn't ask my parents for permission but later I said I was watching it and they just said it was a good show (I'm on season 2 currently).
But it sure contains a lot of mature content. If your kid's gonna watch it he/she has to be kind of mature. There's a lot of nudity (breasts shown) and sex scenes (they never appear graphically but you can still see it). For example: A woman masturbates under a blanket, two women has oral sex, a man and a woman has sex, the mans butt is shown behind complete naked. I don't find these scenes disturbing, but they sure would've if I was watching with my parents.
Obviously there's a rough atmosphere in the prison, bad language and the men sees the women as sex objects and just someone to f*ck with. They threat each other, have fistfights, swear a lot and overall don't behave good towards each other. Example of swear words: p*ssy, f*ck, s*ck p*ssy, b*tch, s*ut, h*ll, d*mn.
I find the show really entertaining and addictive. It's interesting to follow the intrigues and get to know each persons history and background. Also it's interesting to follow them in a prison, since most people don't know what it's like to live in one. I didn't think I'd like it at first, got really surprised when I did.
However, I don't recommend this to anyone under 15. Maybe 14 if they're mature. I'm about to be 15 soon, and I consider myself to be pretty mature so I can handle these words, treaths, sex scenes. It's nothing kids are suppose to see at all. There's too much sex scenes, people commit suicide, they show the aftermath (maybe more graphically in the next seasons). The guards are really mean and a*sholes, so are the prisoners.
A woman threats another to death. She takes a razor blade and slowly cuts it on her hand and then smash all the blood on the other woman. Later she tries to stab her to death with a blade outside, and the guard doesn't care at all. So I mean there's a lot of shitty people on the show.
I still think it's really worth seeing. I think your kid has to be familiar with sex (know about different types of sex too), fine with mental health and suicide scenes and understand that you don't copy someones behaviour on tv just because it's tv and be fine with mature content to watch this.
