Netflix's Tiny Pretty Things Faces Backlash For 'Creepy' Amount Of Sex Scenes

Netflix's Tiny Pretty Things Faces Backlash For 'Creepy' Amount Of Sex Scenes

Netflix's new TV show Tiny Pretty Things has been called out for its 'creepy' amount of sex scenes.

The American teen drama, which is an adaptation of Sona Charaopotra and Dhonielle Clayton's novel of the same name, landed on the streaming platform on 14th December.

The show follows Neveah (Kylie Jefferson), who is an elite ballerina at Chicago's ballet academy, which has recently seen its star pupil pushed to death off a rooftop.

Watch the trailer below:

In each episode, Naveah uncovers more and more mysteries about the other dancers at her school - and the plot gets thicker and all the more dark.

But there's something else which has got people talking - namely for its very lusty scenes of intimacy, which seem to pop up at every corner.

"[Why] is there a sex scene in tiny pretty things like every 5 minutes (sic)", one person wrote after watching the series.

While another observed: "What's the obsession with making teen shows with a bunch of nudity and sex? I am looking at you tiny pretty things, it's creepy".

"The amount of sex scenes in tiny pretty things is obscenely unnecessary," a third chipped in.

It wasn't just viewers who criticised the show for being over-sexualised. One film reviewer - Shannon Miller for AV World - also described the show as having "sex on the mind but little else".

Yikes.

Take away all the X-rated scenes and the show, penned by Michael MacLennan, does sound like it has some potential.

It has been described as Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars, which we think sounds like a winning combo.

Plus, all the lead cast are professional dancers as well as actors, meaning you're not going to get any half baked performances, and every pirouette will impress.

Taking to Dance Spirit, the series' head choreographer, Jennifer Nichols, said that it was like "trying to find unicorns" when he hunted for dancers who were equally as skilled in the acting department.

But do they deliver? The jury is still out. We'll still be watching for the drama...

Tiny Pretty Things is available to watch on Netflix now.
