Sex & Nudity

  • Full body male and female nudity. Every episode and season has sex and nudity in it.
  • In one episode, Ruby Rose is naked. Her breasts and butt are visible
  • One and possibly more episodes include brief segments of commercial porn, including unsimulated sex, as acknowledged in the credits along with the requisite Section 2257 legal statement.
  • In one episode, a picture of a vagina, with visible labia, is shown in closeup multiple times. While the photo is extremely graphic, it is shown in a non-sexual, comedic manner and based on the episode's storyline.
  • There are several scenes of lesbian sex throughout the show. Fully nude women make out and caress each other while moaning and gasping. Cunnilingus is also very frequent, along with fingering. All of the sexual content has to do with the story, and the fact that it takes place in a female prison. Shower scenes occur very frequently, in a lot of scenes naked inmates just walk around fleetingly. Conjugal visits occur infrequently, in which there is heterosexual sex.

Violence & Gore

  • Frequent prison violence. Not especially gory or bloody. Several murders witnessed, stabbings, gang fights, etc.
  • Definitely violent incidents but none with any real gore besides a couple cuts and bruises.


  • "Fuck", "shit", "bitch", "ass", "asshole", "pussy", "tits", "cunt", and "whore" are said throughout the show.
  • Multiple uses of "retard", "retarded", and other denigrating comments about people with disabilities (primarily intellectual disabilities) throughout the series.
  • Frequent transphobia portrayed throughout the series. This includes transphobic slurs such as "Tranny" "lady-man" and other degrading/discriminatory behavior. These incidents are primarily directed towards Sophia, a trans woman and major character in the series.
  • Occasional homophobia/homophobic behavior and use of slurs like "faggot" and "dyke" throughout the show. (Please note that as a whole this series is lgbtq+ friendly. While some of the characters portray lgbtq-phobia the series itself does not express any anti-lgbtq+ views.)
  • Alot of racial discrimination
  • Strong language and denigrating/profane comments about religion throughout each episode.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The main character is put in prison for drug dealing.
  • Use of marijuana is shown throughout.
  • Scenes and reference of smoking and drinking throughout

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Suggested MPA Rating: R for strong sexuality, graphic nudity, drug content, pervasive language and violence
  • Canadian Rating: Rated 18A, Brutal Violence, Course Language, Sexual Content, Nudity
  • It is implied and in one scene shown the aftermath of inmates doing "favours" for a male police officer in order to get any commodities they are unable to in prison, it is also strongly implied and discussed among these officers how they view the inmates sexually and demeaningly (masturbating after talking with an inmate, etc); all of which may cause discomfort in viewers.
  • Although infrequent, there is intense physical and verbal violence and frightening scenes throughout with the use of threats.
  • There is action and physical violence including murder, beatings, bullying, intimidation, etc.
