Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Masters of Sex examines the life and work of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, a pair of pioneering researchers who studied the physiological aspect of human sexual response in the 1950s and '60s. As a result, you'll see plenty of simulated sex and nudity and hear characters discussing dildos, orgasms, and blow jobs (along with some unbleeped swearing and frank language). The show also delves into titillating social issues -- including sexism, racism, and the nature of love -- making it about a lot more than sex.

Sexual Content

Sex takes a variety of forms and is simulated but suggestive, with some visible nudity (mostly breasts and nipples).


In one episode, a man hits a woman and calls her a whore, but she hits him back.


Unbleeped swearing includes "f--k," along with colorful sexual slang like "twat," "hump," and "come."

Social Behavior

For the most part, the series stresses science over sex and stops short of using nudity to "sell" the story. Female empowerment -- both personal and professional -- is another common theme.
