Thanks to Bette for this:

Sex and the Slayer

UPN should consider slapping a TV-MA rating on BTVS, and quickly. First,
Willow got a not-so-subtle rise out of her lesbian lover, Tara, in the
musical episode, and a recent sex scene between Spike and Buffy was so hot,
the net was forced to insert computerized images over the nudity. What's
with the explicitness? "Maybe there's some small psychological factor, like
'let's see what the new dad will say'", says exec producer Marti Noxon of
UPN. "Truthfully, the characters are getting a little older and we're now
doing things that were not permissible when they were teens. The whole
premise is that many of us in our 20s had relationships where we couldn't
figure out what we liked about them except that the sex was so amazing."
Although the show is surprising the hellmouth out fans with lurid sex scenes,
ratings have yet to surge. After a ratings spike upon the show's UPN debut,
Buffy settled back into its WB averages (an anemic 9 share in viewers 12-34).
"We could do an all-naked Buffy and still get a 7 share," admits Noxon.
"It's so elaborate in its mythology, I just don't know how easy it would be
for new viewers to catch up." Well, partially nude shots of Gellar and
Marsters won't hurt.
