​People Are Mortified After Watching Bridgerton With Parents Due To Sex Scenes

Many people have been enjoying new Netflix period drama Bridgerton after it premiered on the streaming service on Christmas Day.


But viewers have a warning for others before they sit down for a family night in with the last of the Quality Street - it's definitely NSFWWP... Not Safe For Watching With Parents.

Inspired by Julia Quinn's best-selling novels, the series follows the eight close-knit siblings of the Bridgerton family as they look for love and happiness in London high society.

While it all that sounds very quaint, one should approach with caution, with Entertainment Weekly writer Kristen Baldwin referring to it as a 'wonderful diversion for those who love Pride & Prejudice but wish it had more stairway sex'.

Baldwin explains: "Just know that there are balls and operas and drawing room intrigue, sweaty shirtless boxing matches and bitter family rivalries, unrequited love and a comely distant cousin (Ruby Barker) with a secret, and passionate sexual awakenings.

"Be it indoors or outdoors, bedroom, library or grand staircase, backstage at the opera house or beneath the canvas-covered bleachers at a boxing match, nowhere is safe from the boisterous lovemaking of Bridgerton's randy cast of characters."

Unfortunately, not everyone got the memo before they embarked on the new watch, with many lamenting on social media about awkwardly watching it with their parents.

"I wish I had known Bridgerton becomes a soft-core porno in episodes 5 and 6 BEFORE I had convinced my parents to watch it," one viewer tweeted.

Another said: "Currently watching Bridgerton where Simon explains touching yourself to Daphne and my mum is here and I feel very uncomfortable. I am almost 26 years old and watching sex scenes with your parents never gets better tbh."

A third added: "If anyone watches the show Bridgerton on Netflix, don't watch it with your parents. By episode 5 I was seeing very soft core porn with my mom 4 feet away and it was terrible."

Another wrote: "Why did nobody tell me not to watch Bridgerton with my PARENTS."

Despite the issues involving parents and steamy scenes, many viewers reckon it's worth a watch, with a 92 percent critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 88 percent audience score.

Watch Bridgerton now on Netflix. Just not with your parents.
