It features Eric Dane, who commits statutory rape with a 17-year-old trans girl, played by Hunter Schafer, 20.

The aroused penis is supposed to be belong to Eric’s character… but, sadly, he’s using a prosthetic.

Euphoria creator Sam Levinson told The Hollywood Reporter: “There are going to be parents who are going to be totally f***ing freaked out.”

Levinson wrote all eight episodes based on his own past struggles with addiction.

Castmember Maude Apatow added “It’s a good insight into how hard it is to grow up in this time.”

HBO programming president Casey Bloys said: “We’re not trying to put out a Gossip Girl.

“It’s not for everyone. It’s not sensational to be sensational.

“It may seem boundary-pushing, and the idea of putting them on TV may be, but somebody lived them.”

The pilot sees Zendaya’s character suffer a shocking drug overdose.

She’s using the role to transition from Disney star to adult actress

She said: “I’ve only really done family movies, so everybody sees me a certain way and doesn’t assume that I can do [a part like this] — or that I want to.”

Meanwhile, American organisation Parents Television Council president Tim Winter argues that the series “appears to be overtly, intentionally marketing extremely graphic adult content — sex, violence, profanity and drug use — to teens and preteens.”
