Sex scenes are uncomfortable

I didn't see any nudity, but there was a sex scene with sounds and movements in the first episode. There was more in the second episode so I quit watching it. I don't recommend it for kids because of it. It could be a good show but because of the scene(s), I won't be watching it anymore. Too bad they feel the need to insert sex into the show.

Too much sex
