At the beginning of the movie, a woman gives birth. No nudity is shown.

A woman tells a man she will only save his crew if he goes to bed with her.

A man comes up to a woman, who is behind a long sheet, and kisses her face while he moans sensually. He dips his index finger in his cup of wine and puts it in her mouth for her to taste it. When she turns away to drink the liquid after he has given the cup to her, the man laughs and undresses himself. It is implied he is nude, but nothing inappropriate is shown. The woman is seen with just a cloth around her waist, but there is also nothing inappropriate seen, either. The man takes the sheet and wraps it around the woman's bare back. He moans and kisses her neck; between her shoulder, and she drops the cup. The woman turns around to face the man and they kiss while he moans through his throat. He leans over her and they lie down on some cloths from behind another sheet. In the next sequence, the man is seen lying on top of the woman, necking her while they have sex.
