Very frequent and extremely crude sexual jokes, and they are cruder with every season.

In season 10 the jokes were much, much more crude and much more graphic. In Australia, one episode was MA15+. Season 8 also has cruder sexual jokes than usual.

Charlie sleeps with some stranger(s) in almost every episode.

In a CSI type episode Charlie makes a joke saying, "How much trouble? Slap on the wrist trouble, or pack my things and tape my butt shut trouble." There is then a clip with Charlie in a jail cell with a very big man standing behind him. The man then says,"I like it when its gift wrapped." You then hear a tearing sound and Charlies face looks panicked, implying that the man ripped the tape off and is about to rape Charlie.

In the same CSI episode the groom (his new stepdad) is lying on Charlie's bed, dead, with his pants down implying he was having sex. The wife (Charlie's mom) then walks in and says she did not have sex with him so everyone realizes the man was cheating. There is repeated conversation about how he has lipstick on his dipstick. CSI then walks in and says that they are going to look for evidence. They then scan the room for semen samples. As you might have guessed, since it is Charlie's room and he has sex in there almost every night, there is semen everywhere. The semen is not seen, but there are quite a few jokes about it.

Charlie's long lost daughter, Jenny, is revealed to be a lesbian, she makes pretty graphic sexual references about women that she's had sex with

Frequent talk about sex, masturbation, porn, and other sexually explicit topics.

While some of the sex jokes are quite direct, the double entendres/innuendos will go over kids' heads.
