  • There are multiple scenes showing explicit female genitalia in graphic medical contexts. Crowning and delivery with female genitalia fully displayed is shown with c-sections in a 2 minute montage early in the series. Other scenes displaying fully nude females, inclusive of bare breast nudity and genitalia, are shown similarly.
  • A woman has sex with a man in a public bathroom. Only faces are shown. No nudity, only thrusting and moaning while kissing is seen.

  • A man is awkwardly pushed to masturbate standing up to produce sperm for the facility he works for. It's not violent nor rape, but he's not comfortable with the situation. He has blindfolds on to keep him from seeing the room he's in. No nudity, but we see him masturbating from the side.
  • A woman is seen on the floor of her job/lab falling asleep while drunk. She then puts her hand down her pants to masturbate. No nudity
  • A woman and a man kiss at a bar while intoxicated. She invites the man to have sex with her at her house, but also invites everyone at the bar to have a party at her house. We see her and the man kissing in the hall then go have sex in her room. They kiss while she's on top, then we see her riding him slowly for a few seconds before she decides to stop and leaves the room. No nudity, only some nude shoulders (man's) and his legs.
  • Both sisters are in the bathroom. One is dealing with medication bottles by the sink. She's bra-less so we can see her nipples through her shirt a bit. The other sister is naked in the shower sitting on the shower floor and we see her naked body, yet no sexual parts are seen. Just the side and legs.
  • A man and a woman talk about their lives and the man mentions he had cheated on his late wife. Later we see them kissing and go to the woman's apartment to have sex. We see him the next day leaving. No nudity

  • A woman is fully nude seating in a man-made set up mimicking nature during labor. Breasts are fully seen at first, then she leans back and some pubic area is seen, but not in detail.
  • A woman has sex with a man in a bathroom, seating on him. Both are fully clothed, no nudity. The man seems very uncomfortable and somehow forced to do it. She gets up and tells him to get on his knees to perform oral sex on her. We see his head from the back while she moves his head with her hands. More disturbing than sensual

No imagery but the spoken details might upset some viewers
  • A woman is about to have a section done. We see the big belly being cut open and the doctor puts her hands inside the belly to pull out the babies (there are four) in a very realistic detail. Near the end, there's an incident where blood splashes out the belly and the doctor gets pulled away violently from the operation onto a wall.
