Captivating Story NOT for children, or anyone under 17

The story is pretty interesting as it circles around a family's intense loyalty values that border on cultic ideas. However, characters learn to find their own paths while simultaneously 'sticking by' their family. More importantly however, violence and sex are an almost constant, with sex scenes being prolonged and LOUD (if you know what I mean). Partial and entire nudity is also present (the camera is usually far enough away so you only see the outline, but you never know). Incest and drug dealing is also present. Violence, while not as frequent as sex is also very graphic with characters being maimed, murdered, and beaten to a near pulp.

This title has:

Too much sex
