A little risque

I am by no means prudish. However, I began watching season 1 with my 10 year old, and the multiple discussions regarding orgies, was a bit unsettling. I watched this season when it originally aired, before having children. I was prepared for nudity, but forgot about the sexual content. Watching it with them, I am having to press mute at least once per episode. I think we’ll be done after getting through season 1.

Please don't ruin the show with "wokeness"

I have watched every episode of survivor and have enjoyed the show for the most part, hovever, the show has changed over the years and now it has so much talk about lgbtq+ and transitional topics that it should have a warning to parents to block their children from watching the show. It was once a family show but it is now adding more and more inferances about how wonderful it is to be gay and/or turn trans. So many children that do this eventually commit suiside when they grow up and find that it was not such a good idea to do that. The per centage is pretty high compared to a child who stays straight in a normal community. survivor is now a show that emulates companies like Disney who has had many employees that have recently been convicted of grooming and child molestation. Keep the show but please stop the "woke" theme. Make it a picture of the normal American family values and desire for a real adventure as it once was. Yes, I remember that a gay man won the first season but that was an anomoly. Come on people, don't let "wokeness" ruin a very good show.
