Normal people tops awkward family viewing poll

Erotic scenes can cause us to squirm when viewed in the company of our parents.

3,255 TV fans participated on a poll on the shows they found most awkward to watch with family and the results are in.

The TV show most people find too awkward to watch with their parents is Normal People. Even though its authentic and honest portrayal of sex has been celebrated, a whopping 83% don’t find this honest portrayal enough to share it with family.

Prominent in the news for its sex scenes, in second place is Bridgerton – chosen by 81%. Daphne and Simon don’t hold back when getting dirty in the first and only season to date, proving why viewers are uncomfortable to watch with their parents.

Following closely behind in third is Orange is the New Black. The inclusive Netflix original contributes to deserved LGBTQ+ screen time, but many of its scenes are too explicit to watch with a family member – in fact 78% vowed they wouldn’t!
