Lots of sexual dialog and implied sex before or after scenes, but no actual nudity or sex shown.

Many scenes where people are shown just before or after sex, discussing sex. There's lots of discussion of masturbation including masturbation in front of people and on camera. A man is shown presumably naked and masturbating, but no movement is shown.

Explicit sexual dialogue is used throughout. Many instances in which sexual related terms are used, which include but are not limited to: four instances of the words: "masturbate" and "orgasm"; one instance each of the words; "balls" and "hard-on".

Overall, the profanity is semi frequent and includes: twelve instances of the word "fuck" (six of which are used in a sexual implication); two instances of the word "bullshit"; three instances of the word "damn"; one instance each of the words: "hell", "bitch" and "bastard".

Characters smoke cigarettes. Alcohol is consumed, but not to excess.

Recommended for ages 17 and older.
