As I've said before, I quite like it, and am watching it...

but something I don't like about it, but I only just put my finger on from reading this thread, is characters knowing much, much more about obscure sexual practices (specifically 'anal beads' in this case) than the character actually would - presumably in the name of getting a laugh, or making the audience either cringe or (more likely) look at each other blankly.

It's a thing I've noticed in other stuff - Back To Life is particularly guilty. Not sure what the trope should be called though.
