A few scenes of sexual activity, all fairly brief.

A woman is seen in a bathtub, leaning over the edge to read a magazine. We see nothing but her arms and bare shoulders.

A woman is seen thrusting on top of a man. However, this takes up only the left hand corner of the screen, and the woman wears a nightgown. No nudity.

A man is seen seen thrusting a woman in one scene.

A man and a woman are seen in bed having sex, but only his back and her arms are seen. No nudity.

A man and a woman have sex in the street, again no nudity or real detail. Just some thrusting and his bare back.

A young woman is penetrated without any romantic prelude while sitting outside at night in a chair by a young man she barely knows.It is clear that she is in pain and experiences discomfort during the act. Later she is "taken" by the same young man up against the wall of a theatre while an opera is in progress.She still looks in discomfort.

A young woman is penetrated with no romantic prelude by a young man she barely knows while sitting outside at night in a chair. She appears to be in pain, confused, and in discomfort.This would clearly be rape if the leading man were not a popular star.
