It's not a ducking kids show, he even states it in the show! Remember, whoever posted this with this title is selling you a narrative and you are buying it, because the person who posted this probably heard the part where Bill Nye exclaims this is not a kids show, but that's not part of the narrative he is selling so he ignored that.

It's rated 12+. It might be intended for adults but if the content was 'adult only' I would hope it's only on after 11:00pm (or some late hour).

Pretend you are a parent of a 13-18yo. You grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy and want to get your child interested. You are watching this episode with them and a few things are concerning but hey its Bill Nye he is not going to allow anything absurd. Then this shit comes on. It is too late.

Alright ya know what, I don't give a shit that much about Bill Nye okay? I used to watch him on Almost Live in the 90's and he was pretty cool just doing interesting science experiments on that show. I can't speak of his other shows but he didn't seem like an evil guy then, although he was awkward as hell a lot of the time.

Is it not 13+? I still don't see why early adolescents should be encouraged to give random people handjobs or encouraged to screw anything with a pulse. It has nothing to do with scientific learning.
