No sexual acts are depicted on screen, but there is a scene in which a couple undress very quickly (although they still have their undergarments on). In a few scenes the topic of contraception arises, but the dialogue is very mild, and in some cases, humorous. A woman talks with another woman about how she had sex with a man she did not know and talks about how he used two condoms--one right after the other.

Overall, the profanity is minimal and infrequent, but includes: 7 instances of the use of the word "f**k"--none of which are used in a sexual manner. 2 instances of the use of the word "s**t". 2 instances of the use of the word "b***h". 2 instances of the use of the word "a**". 3 instances of the use of the word "slag"--English slang for "slut".

Roxanne and Cynthia smoke and drink often (although never in excess).
