“Netflix’s Marilyn Monroe Movie Gets Rare NC-17 Rating for Sexual Content”
The Hollywood Reporter

The rating NC-17
Is lipstick on an X.
This skin-flick biopic knows green
Accrues to bombshell sex.

Her bare breasts launched a magazine
That launched a thousand wanks,
So now she’s NC-17,
A rating Netflix banks.
