Young Vivi and her friends ride topless in a convertible and are caught by the local sheriff (theyre shown from the back). A few womens outfits show cleavage, and a few scenes show women wearing panties (albeit very modest ones).

Sidda is shown from the front wearing a thong, prompting one Ya-Ya to blurt, "I dont understand having those underwear up your a-- crack."

Vivi's mother makes a vague accusation about incest, calling it a "mortal sin."

There is a scene where a child vomits on his mother.

During their Sisterhood ceremony, the Ya-Yas use a knife to make tiny cuts in their palms; then they press their hands together to mix their blood.

Young Vivi screams at her husband, throws a frying pan on the counter, and beats her children with a belt.
