Dirty Lines synopsis

The story is about the beginnings and rise of the erotic phone lines in Amsterdam in the late ’80s. The official synopsis via Netflix is below:

"The story of Dirty Lines starts in 1987’s Amsterdam, at a time when Dutch society was changing rapidly. Psychology student Marly Salomon takes on a side job working for a brand new firm: Teledutch – a company started by two brothers, Frank and Ramon Stigter, who established Europe’s first erotic telephone lines. Frank and Ramon become rich overnight and Marly finds herself immersed in this wild and rapid transformation. The final years of the Cold War sparked a sense of hope and inspired a new generation to celebrate life to its fullest. Amsterdam became the center of that cultural revolution with a radically new form of music: house and a new love drug: XTC. The erotic phone lines offer the opportunity to experience anonymous sex in a new way, changing the morality of its consumers, but also very much the people creating it."

Dirty Lines parents guide and age rating

Netflix gave this show an age rating of TV-MA, which is understandable. Since the show’s main topic is about erotic phone lines, it makes sense why it’s only for mature audiences. Other inappropriate content in the series includes the use of substances, coarse language, sex and nudity, and smoking. All of the content just listed would be considered inappropriate for kids.

To keep the kids occupied while you watch the drama series, we recommend browsing Netflix’s endless kid’s library to find something for them to watch.

The first season consists of six episodes, so it’s an easy show to binge. All you have to do is make some room in your schedule.
