Moderate sexual references and some brief sex scenes with no nudity.

Seasons 1-3 are fairly clean, with 2 or 3 brief sex scenes and mild sexual references. However, seasons 4-7 after that contain a lot more sex scenes, lesbianism, and they tend to be extended and more graphic. No nudity, although there is moaning and thrusting. The sexual references become more frequent as well.

Some sex scenes in season 6 may be extremely inappropriate for younger viewers

Frequent moderate violence involving vampires and demons. Usually with just punching and kicking. Vampires are often 'dusted', which involves stabbing them in the heart or decapitating them. They then turn into dust with no blood. For a show about vampires, there's very little blood shown. 7/10

Mostly damn and hell, but occasional instances of bitch, ass, slut, wanker etc. There is also some occasionally crude sexual humor. The word "bollocks" is also used once or twice

Please Note: there are a few occasions where someone is about to curse and you can tell what the word was going to be, but they are always cut off before saying the entire word (usually by death).

Some alcohol can be seen being consumed. In a few episodes people appear to be 'high' on magic. Some mild drug references. One of the main characters, a vampire smokes cigarettes regularly.

A few episodes are very dark, and some of the vampires and demons can appear scary.

It really should be noted that this series matures with its expected audience; while Season 1 is appropriate for pretty much all but the youngest kids, Seasons 2 - 4 start to pick it up a bit so that parents should think twice before anyone under 11 or 12 watches them, and Seasons 5 - 7 really shouldn't be viewed (as a whole) by anyone under 13.
