There was a time in film and TV when nudity and sexual content was non-existent. There were even times when a married couple would be depicted as sleeping in separate beds. A lot has changed since the beginning of TV. Now, intense sexuality and graphic nudity can be found on some of the most successful TV series. Cable television, paid subscriptions and online streaming have less restrictions and makes it possible for the series to get away with a lot more. ABC’s NYPD Blue was one of the first shows to depict people engaging in sexual acts. They didn't show any nudity and most of it was in the dark. However, it was highly suggestive. Now it’s common for some shows to feature sexy and beautiful people in steamy, hot and sweaty sex scenes that can get viewers all hot and bothered…wait…what were we talking about? Oh, yeah, sexual content on TV. There are fewer restrictions with violence and sexual content nowadays, however it can still cause controversy.
