HBO's new show is very explicit. How explicit?
the show shows:
> an erected penis (of Eric Dane's character), when he rapes a 17-year-old trans girl
> a drug overdose
> a (teen) sex scene involving choking
> 30 penises (?)
- according to HBO's CEO it makes 13 Reasons Why look like an "an after-school special"
- Actor Brian "Astro" Bradley was uncomfortable filming certain scenes and fought hard to get out of his contract. Algee Smith replaced him. (Details about this incident are "fiercely guarded")
- HBO nixed a gender-bent Carrie homage scene involving naked high school boys
- the show has an intimacy coordinator
- they don't use coverage pads for sex scenes bc they would not work with the sex positions they use
