Couldn't make it through the first episode

First off, the info here on Common Sense Media about the mini Prime series The Pursuit of Love is completely wrong. Many scenes where one cousin jumps on the other cousin in inappropriate ways and says what you might expect, inappropriate things. There is nudity from a distance, nudity that is more covered, and then full frontal male nudity. I did not expect that nor need that image. There is brash contemporary music with expletives like the "D" word for male genitals and the big "F" word in one song. I don't watch anything with strong language so hopefully this site will update to protect others from watching this if they desire not to. I didn't even make it through the first episode. The rating on Prime is 13+, no child should watch this. As a married adult I found it shocking enough to get me to dive for the remote to turn it off. I regret watching it.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
