Disclaimer help?

(A follow-up of sorts to my previous post)

Inspired by the members of this community and gmworkshop, I've decided to create a "Mature Content" disclaimer for my upcoming tabletop game (mentioned in the above-referenced post). I am, however, having some trouble with the wording.

As it stands, I have the following:

Warning: My games are intended for mature audiences, and may include sexual content and graphic descriptions of violence. If that will disturb you, this may not be the game for you.

Is this sufficient? Given that there are under-18s in the local university's gaming club (which is where I'll be running the game), I'd rather not get too explicit about what constitutes sexual or violent content, but at the same time I'd rather have players know that there will be "adult content" in the game at the very beginning (remembering a few instances in past games where players were offended by something I didn't mind talking about, but which apparently pushed their buttons).
