Fun for adults 15 and over

I like this website myself because of the informative and interesting topics, but young children shouldnt be roaming this site alone. Sexual topics are frequent and blatantly obvious.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Great messages

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (1):

Parents will probably not want their teens anywhere near because of content like "The Vice Guide to Sex," which ventures into very disturbing terrority -- like bestiality. It's a shame, because some the investigative pieces are fantastic -- like the environmental exposs "Toxic" and "The Vice Guide to North Korea," a 14-episode documentary that goes inside the notoriously press-shy nation. Too bad there's no VBS Jr.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
