A theme of the movie is that two best friends are male prostitutes who serve male and females.

Many sexual references, some graphic.

An oral sex scene that is shown off-screen. We only really see the mans face as he moans and climaxes, with some shots from different angles showing stronger images, but nothing explicit.

Many bare-chested men on the front of gay porno magazines are shown. A small amount of pubic hair can be seen on one man.

Two men have vigorous sex under bed covers. This scene is accompanied with a lot of noise and the two men are shown after one has climaxed, but no nudity.

Three men have sex. The scene is shown using still images only, but they are fairly graphic. Some nudity.

A man and a woman have sex, once again using still images only. More graphic than the scene above. Male & female nudity.

There's a scene when a group of people attack another group to steal their money, there are gunshots but nobody gets hurt.

There are also some fight scenes, but nothing really violent.

Very open discussion of sexual acts, and derogatory name calling.

Drug use and alcoholism are both depicted.

This is a very emotional, intense film.

Rated R for strong sensuality, language and drug use
