There are a few disgusting scenes across the series, so I had to look it up.

Didier is talking about 2 sex scenes with superheros that don't include Homelander.

I don't mean to sound like a prude but the sex stuff is what I care less about the show.

I get there's a potential angle there with superheroes if you want to go that way but it feels juvenile and faux-edgy in this show compared to the more nuanced political satire stuff.

I watch this show only for Anthony Starr's performance. Insane brilliance.

From what I've seen so far, it's more a scathing rebuke of current American society than comic books or superheroes - it just happens to use superheroes to get there.

Agreed.

While I haven't read the comic yet, but apparently one of the traits of the Vought corporation is all their products have pretty huge flaws in their rush to market.  

Since that's so on-brand for American corporations I'm slightly disappointed that if it was stated anywhere (beyond the clear evidence of...their flawed superheroes) I missed it.
