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.

Confused by Parents watching with their children....

So this is pornographic in nature. Do all these parents on here think it’s good to watch Porn with their children, because I’m appalled by these comments/reviews. I would have been uncomfortable as hell watching this with my parents as a teen and would never allow my child to watch this period while they lived in my home. Just because teens can’t seem to talk about anything other than sex in these kinds of shows ( another Hollywood projection used to drum up interest and make $$) that is not reality for many teens. I have to say the lighthearted review on this site talking about a mother walking in on her masterbating son in a car and the “ funny” bodily fluid that she sees. Are ya’ll perverts?!!!! Not funny, not appropriate . And ewww just no. If this site is backed by science as it claims, where is the science of the brain on porn, how addictive it is, how it actually is a leading cause of divorce, in adults, and how masterbating obsessively can lead to ED in teens ? They may want to throw that bit of reality in to make it ... more ....real life.... if that is what people are claiming this show depicts.

AM I the only one with common sense?

This is NOT for kids, not for teens, this show is all about sex! In the first thirty seconds of the first episode there is nudity. There is nudity, foul language, even full frontal view genitalia, sexting and things kids do not need to know about! I’m ashamed of anyone who’s let there twelve year old or older kids watch this, I’ve seen reviews from kids that young. It’s MA for a reason, keep people away from this, it’s no educational it’s overly informative in ways that will damage your mind. I can’t even watch this and I’m eighteen, this is ridiculous.
