Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt": Teen Sex While Visiting Grandparents

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a Netflix comedy co-created by Tina Fey. On the second episode of the premier season, "Kimmy Gets a Job!" (2015), 15-year-old Xanthippe Voorhees and her friend Simone were playing "vodka shotzee" when Simone got alcohol poisoning. 

Xanthippe warned that they couldn't have Simone's stomach pumped at the hospital, because Simone's dad is running for Congress. Consequently. Kimmy made a vomit inducing concoction but advised that Simone see a doctor to which Xanthippe replied: 

"Her boyfriend's an ophthalmologist, but he's on vacation with his wife."
Later, Simone shared: 
"You guys, I was showering with Dr. Jerry and he told me he hates his wife."

Xanthippe replied: "You're so lucky!"

Then Xanthippe shared, to Kimmy's utter surprise, that she had sex with a blond surfer on a California beach while visiting her grandparents to which Simone shared: 
"I have sex when I visit my grandparents too."

Unlike Kimmy, I'm not surprised that Xanthippe felt that Simone was "lucky" to have an ophthalmologist for a boyfriend (who hated his wife), and that Xanthippe and Simone had sex when she they visited their grandparents. 

However, if Dr. Jerry had decided that he didn't hate his wife and abruptly ended his age-gap affair with Simone, I wouldn't be surprised if Simone and Xanthippe had accused the ophthalmologist of victimizing Simone. And Simone would have denied any consensual involvement in the age-gap affair.

I was flipping through an old notebook when I discovered that I failed to share that on episode 10, in a conversation with Kimmy, 15-year-old Xanthippe shared that if she moved to Connecticut, she would lose her dad's friend whom buys her jewelry in exchange for her old retainers. Xanthippe said:

"Imagine your 15. One day your whole life gets taken from you. Your school. Your friends. Your dad's friend who buys you jewelry when you send him your old retainers."
