In the end of one episode, we can see Newman and Kramer's mom briefly having sex.

Season four, "The Pitch" -- George jokes about how a story must be good or else it's "simply just masturbation." PG-13

Season four -- episode 11 ("The Contest"): the entire plot is how the main characters have a contest to see who can go the longest without masturbating, although the word "masturbate" or one of its variations is never used. A nude woman across the street from one of the main character's apartments makes someone the first to lose the contest. The woman is never shown, though. References are made to JFK's "butt." PG-13

Season 4--episode 17 ("The Outing") Some people think Jerry and George are gay, and throughout the episode they try to convince people that they are not. PG-13

Season 4--episode 21 ("The Smelly Car") Susan is a lesbian and there are many references to it. PG-13

Season five, episode one ("The Mango"): an entire sub-plot revolving around orgasms, including multiple uses of the word "orgasm." PG/PG-13

Season 5--episode 20 ("The Hamptons") Rachel sees George naked and giggles and he tries to convince her that it was just temporary shrinkage because he had been in the pool. PG-13

Season six, episode nine ("The Secretary"): a sex scene. All of the action is off-screen, but lots of moaning and heavy breathing can be heard. PG-13

Season 7--episode 9 ("The Sponge") There are many references to birth control and sponge-worthy. In one scene George is seen trying to open a condom. PG-13

Season 9--episode 4 ("The Blood") George tries to combine food, sex and tv and there are many references to it. PG-13

Another one revolves around the word "ass" (see profanity). Some pretty heavy kissing scenes, occasional implied sex and nudity.

It's mostly slapstick comedy. Nothing serious.

"Son of a bitch", "bastard", "hell", and "damn" are sometimes said. "Bitch" is infrequently said.

There's little to no extreme swearing in this show on a regular basis. There is a moment where one character says "jerk-off" (non-sexual) and another which revolves around the middle finger (which is flipped several times, in comical ways). Another episode revolves around use of the word "ass" (in its literal meaning) because of a license plate that says "assman."

There are also bleeped uses of fuck in episodes, but this is not a usual occurence.

Expect the occasional bar/club scene, complete with on-screen alcohol consumption. Characters frequently drink and smoke in other places and scenes as well.
