Several brief but relatively passionate kisses between two men.

Passionate kissing, petting, and sex between a man and a woman. A woman's bared breasts are shown.

Two men somewhat derisively discuss sex with women.

Talk of prostitution.

An older man watches lightly attired youths while at the beach; this sparks a quarrel about whether he sexually desires them.

One ballet depicts a very stylized love triangle/menage a trois. Another more explicitly features a faun suggestively rubbing against a nymph's scarf, and a pantomined climax; another character exclaims that he has just masturbated in front of all of Paris.

A character in the midst of a breakdown destroys a room and breaks furniture.

Several plot-important uses of sexual slurs ("pederast", "whore")

Social drinking and period-appropriate smoking throughout.

Nijinsky's breakdown and fears that he is going mad may be disturbing to some. By modern standards, it is fairly tame, however.
