Highly sexual content
I am a parent of a 9-year old who loves fantasy and magic stories but is a young-minded preteen who isn't ready for sexual content. After watching the first 4 episodes of The Secret Circle, I personally think it's not for any kid under 16. There is very graphic sexual scenes between high school students. They show two friends having habitual sex, with the boy doing it for fun and the girl secretly liking him. The scene is very explicit with showing the girl removing shirt and taking bra off with full back view. The only way there was no frontal nudity was that she was slightly angled. The latest episode had a high school couple about to have sex and showed foreplay by having whipped cream placed on neck and chest and then moving to the bedroom with girl only in lace bra and panty. It got even more explicit. So needless to say, this is not appropriate for children.
