Soft-core Pornography with a back story

Commonsense Media again under-rates the level of sex and nudity. The Commonsense main review says "expect to see group sex (WITH NO NUDITY)" This is completely misleading. There is frequent frequent nudity. Check out the IMDB parental content advisory for far more detail on this then you want. There are ejactulations, orgasms, breasts, and visible oral sex acts performed in graphic detail. The review further says "(all private parts are covered)" -- again this is simply false, unless we are changing the definition of what "private parts" are in 2019. This is another soft to medium porn show with an intriguing story to sell it to the masses. All the scientific groups warning us of the effects of watching things like this (brain development, relationship-damage, intimacy and emotional connectedness-damage: fightthenewdrug.org, etc), and all the entertainment groups injecting more and more of it into shows even as studies come out. This is CBS's 2nd show showing now allowing full nudity and graphic sex scenes on their network. Even more troubling is the lack of sensitivity to the millions of families who might not care to see this kind of thing: they inject flashes of the group sex scenes into every advertisement for this show-- and spray those images into people's homes with no discrimination or attempts to match the rating level of the show people are watching. So in other words you could be watching TV-G on CBS (like Price Is Right) with your family and all of a sudden looking at flashes of naked people having group sex because an ad for this TV-MA show comes up. Also commonsense missed that the rating is MA. Let's go commonsensemedia! This is the stuff we lean on you guys to help us stay clear of!!
