Viewers shocked at Netflix drama Fishbowl Wives that tackles cuckolding and open marriages

We're well into the no man's land of the festive period, which means you're probably looking for something to while away the time until New Year.

Well, if you're in the post Christmas slump and are in need of something to keep you occupied that doesn't involve Santa and his elves, we have just the thing to spice up your Yuletide:

Based on the manga series by Kurosawa R, Fishbowl Wives follows the lives of six different women who live in a luxury apartment block and 'end up crossing the line into infidelity'.

And by the sounds of things, it's definitely not one you're gonna watch with mum and dad.

The eight-part series is jam-packed with x-rated scenes and raunchy storylines, including a husband who gets turned on at seeing his wife getting with another man.

Since it landed on Netflix earlier this year, viewers have been gripped, with many take aback by the explicit content.

Sharing their thoughts on Twitter, one fan joked: "I'm trying to learn about goldfish care, but everyone's just having seggz and cheating on each other... "

Another queried: "Why can you hear his tongue when he's going down on her?"

"The opening scene of #FishbowlWives they ain’t even waste time just straight forward lord," put a third.

Someone else commented: "So I’m watching @netflix #FishbowlWives and not even 5 minutes…. so much ass and tits… I came for the goldfish."

And another said: "#FishbowlWives is porn with an interesting plot."

Despite the x-rated nature of the show, though, some saw past the nudity and praised it for tackling topics that are often seen as taboo.

One fan said: "The #FishbowlWives on @netflix is thought-provoking series. Parameters of the marriage have been shown from the female POV.

"The situations shown are so similar to things we see around. Watching might help people see problems in a different light. Good watch."

Viewers were particularly affected by one episode that centres on a young woman who is trapped in an abusive relationship.

'The Fishbowl Wife' follows Sakura, who is married to the cruel Takuya, who cheats on her and is violent.

And it left people divided over what they thought about it.

"I’m watching #FishbowlWives and I have a LOT to say about my HATE for Takuya," wrote one. "The most VILE of men. I am disgusted!"

Another said: "This is so horrible. The message is abused women really like the abuse. I'm giving the whole series a bad rating just because of this ending."

Fishbowl Wives is available to stream on Netflix now.
