Fans of the Netflix drama have complained about the number of intimate scenes packed into the 10-episode season and believe it to be an overload.

The Society was released on May 10 and charts a large group of 17 to 18 year olds who return to their home town after a school trip to find it deserted.
They transform into sex and violence-crazed teenagers and it appears it is too much for some fans.
In the first two episodes, there are nine recorded sex scenes, which represents a large proportion of those episodes.
Fans have had enough and took to Twitter to air their feelings.
One shocked fan said: “The Society needs to calm down with all these sex scenes.”
Another added: “There’s too much sex going on in this show.”
A third fan went further: “The new Netflix series The Society is wack, after every little thing that happens there’s a sex scene or something sexual on screen hands down.”
Another could not believe their eyes: “I just started watching The Society on Netflix. If this is young adult, damn. Those teenagers are having more sex then most adults.”
However, a Forbes review suggests the Netflix does not go far enough.
The review claims: “Despite all its YA (Young Adult) shenanigans, The Society is still just a little too… standard for its own good. And this seems to be the case with every younger-demo sewing Netflix series of this type. Sabrina, The Order, even dating all the way back to Hemlock Grove, all these shows feel just a hair too grounded.
“A hair too in control of themselves.
“The Society is fine. It’s typical Netflix.
“But typical Netflix is really growing stale these days, and for a series with such a wacky Lord of The Flies premise as this, there really needed to be more of a willingness on the show’s part to ride on the wild side.”
The final moments of The Society were set at a reading, where everyone was wearing yellow ribbons and were gathered around a plaque with all the teens’ names on them and the words “We Remember Them”.
This seems to confirm the theory that the teens have found themselves in a parallel universe, meaning there must be a way they can return home.
However, the episode gives no clues as to how they can return and where they actually are.
Though no details have emerged about The Society season two, Allie (played by Kathryn Newton) could be one of the first casualties of the next series.
At the end of the season finale, the “military” of the town stage a coup, which sees Allie deposed as mayor over false charges that she faked the election.
It suggests Campbell might meet a sticky end if there is another series of The Society.
The Society is streaming now on Netflix.
