to think there's too much sex on Netflix?

Not to be too puritanical... Part of the reason I got the subscription was so my ageing dad would have something decent to watch over Christmas!

The Medicis is the latest offender. I want to watch an interesting series with the family, without being subjected to intermittent scenes featuring Florentine whores getting rid, to put it bluntly.

Can they not at least have a "parent-friendly" button to avoid uncomfortable scenes?? I've nothing against a good sex scene when relevant to the story but it just seems totally gratuitous most of the time.

You do know they show the rating and a brief description before you watch it?

There's no sex on my Netflix,but Then my playlist is Thomas and Friends, various Thomas specials, and Peppa Pig.

You watched a show about the Medicis and didn't expect sex scenes? And don't think that sex was relevant to the story of that particular family?

YABU, I'm afraid.

Why does your dad have to be protected from sex scenes?

gabsdot Fri 16-Dec-16 19:51:14

I agree, There is a way to have a kids only option and you can password protect the adult shows.

Netflix displays the rating and description of shows. Also, you can set up profiles for kids /kid friendly viewing.

Basically, you need to police yourself, like a grown up

Why on earth would "parent-friendly" mean no sex?

You do realise your dad did actually have sex with your mum, do you?

I think this is a wind up

I get where OP is coming from. Much of the time sex scenes are so gratuitous. I'm not a prude but I would sometimes like to watch things with teenage DC without the unnecessary cringe.

There are literally thousands of shows on Netflix. Plenty of them don't have a lot of sex. Sherlock, Luther, Glee, Parks and Rec, The Office, The Walking Dead, all sorts of genres.

Parent friendly? Haha wind your neck in.

hmmif there's anything that should definitely have plenty of sex it's the Medicis. There are numerous family and even children friendly series/movies on Netflix .

"Parent friendly" aye right

LeadPipe Fri 16-Dec-16 20:25:20

But the parental cringe of a sex scene with teens around is practically a right of passage.

Oh good grief!

IneedAqueenMortificadoNickname Fri 16-Dec-16 20:28:37

I've only recently got netflix but have watched quite a few things on there. Haven't seen any sex yet. Must be watching the wrong shows grin

DH keeps watching some gladiator shite for the storyline obviously not the soft porn hmm

Gowgirl Fri 16-Dec-16 20:31:57

Try game of thrones indeed a queen...

Badcat666 Fri 16-Dec-16 20:32:06

ohhh! I have Netflix! will have to look up that. Do we get to see willies??!! (I am SUCH a child)

Also as other ppl have mentioned, there's a kids friendly button you can click on if you are worried about your dad seeing someone faking the horizontal tango.

Oh just checked Netflix and it's rated a 15 and for the UK that means it is intended for adults which normally means you have to be mature enough to handle some rumpy bumpy

<Sees Richard Madden is in it>

Is it frontal nudity? I'm asking for a friend...

Badcat666 Fri 16-Dec-16 21:09:24

Anyone know about the frontal nudity? Because MrsMatt and I have friends that need to know...

Obsidian77 Fri 16-Dec-16 21:11:20

I thought that was the whole point of Netflix [unhelpful]

Madeyemoodysmum Fri 16-Dec-16 21:42:13

Try stranger things. No sex and bloody awesome. Best thing I've seen all year.

IneedAqueenMortificadoNickname Fri 16-Dec-16 21:45:45

GowGirl thanks for the recommendation but unless they have a series that hasn't been released yet I've seen them all grin
Actually a lot of things I watch seem to have sex scenes in just not any of the things ibe seen on nf. Oh I lie. American Horror Story kind of did. Almost. Sort of
