Why Is Prime Rated PG-13?

The fact that Prime achieved a PG-13 rating on appeal for sexual content should give parents a heads up about the amount of subject matter in this film. Detailed sexual dialogue, including the use of medical terms for body parts, is frequent, as are scenes and sounds of sexual passion. Most alcohol use takes place in the home or a bar setting, with one character portrayed as totally drunk. Language concerns include repeated profanities, terms of Deity and one extreme term.
