  • Throughout the show some sensitive topics regarding sex are discussed, such as sexual abuse/assult and pornography.
  • Some sexual content that is infrequent. Established couples have sex off-screen but can be shown making out in underwear. Couples also have frank discussions about their sex. An ep briefly deals with phone sex (this is never shown and it's only talked about, but does mention masturbation).
  • A female doctor shows her breasts to a young boy. We do not see anything. She does this so the boy has a chance to see a woman's breasts before being blinded. He leaves the room with an excited look on his face and a raised heart rate.
