Remember when Netflix first came out and you could shame your roommates for watching Netflix movies with nudity clearly ONLY because of the sexy movie posters they had. The proof was in the queue and in the "Recently Watched" section. Same with nudity on Hulu because of the "shows you watch" or recommendations on there. Recommendation engines really made it obvious to everyone who was looking for nudity on TV.
