Sex & Nudity

  • A man attempts to have sex with his wife, but she refuses (they're both clothed). He becomes angry, pulling her hair, and she ends up hitting his penis with a tennis racket, which causes him to fall to his knees. The penis (which is actually a prosthetic) can be seen towards the end of the scene for no longer than a second, but it isn't focused on, and due to the dark lighting of the scene, viewers may not even notice it.
  • A woman begins to take off her nightgown for her husband in a playful, sensual manner, but quickly stops. Some minor nudity (her breasts aren't shown fully due to camera angles, but it comes close a few times). This scene lasts just over a minute.
  • A woman dances sensually for her husband over a Skype call, resulting in her taking off her shirt. Her breasts can be seen extremely briefly (blink and you'll miss it, and the shot is from far away). Her husband appears to put his hand under his blanket, but the camera cuts away before anything else happens. This scene is at the very end of Episode 2, so it's easy to skip.
  • A woman is seen showering (no nudity seen); her husband comes in clothed and they kiss. The scene then cuts to a very far away shot of her silhouette behind the shower door, with movement behind her. This scene lasts for just over 30 seconds, and the final shot is very brief.
  • A man and woman have a very loud, grunting sex on their office desk. They are fully clothed and no nudity is shown. Very brief and done in a comedic way.
  • A woman showers; buttocks and side breast briefly visible. (Non-sexual)
  • A main plotline of the series is of a woman coming to terms with a sexual assault she experienced, resulting in a pregnancy. Throughout the first season, extremely brief glimpses of that night are seen, and instead of actually showing what happens, the show decides to focus on the woman's senses and memories after the assault, and quick editing doesn't allow for anything very graphic to be seen.
  • A woman takes off her dress and walks into the ocean, the silhouette of her body can be seen.
  • Apart from Celeste's (Nicole Kidman) storyline, mostly in the second episode, sexual content is kept quite low. Some humourous conversations that refer to sex ("I don't know why I talk about sex so much"), and some implied sex, but nothing very inappropriate. Overall, older teens and adults should be fine with this material (Commonsense Media gives the show a 16+ rating).
  • A married woman kisses another man in his office. She then pulls away, but they kiss again.

Violence & Gore

  • There are multiple scenes of domestic abuse, ranging in intensity, in multiple episodes.
  • A woman imagines herself shooting the man that assaulted her; a small spurt of blood is seen as she "shoots" him.


  • Frequent but sparse uses of "fuck", "shit", "bitch", "damn", "hell", etc.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man smokes in one scene. It is however brief and not much is seen.
  • Episode 1: A brief reference to marijuana. A woman is seen beginning to light a cigarette.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Suggested MMPA Rating: R for strong sexual content/nudity, language throughout, and some violence.
