Note: The number at the beginning of each section refers to how much explicit content of that kind there is in the film on a scale of 1-10. The fraction at the end of the last section is the total sum of the sections over the highest sum possible (50) and is therefore an approximation of about how explicit the film is a whole.

Sex & Nudity: 7/10

There are a few scenes in which two female lovers kiss passionately. In one scene, they have sex. A female breast is shown briefly. The main character is a prostitute. In one scene, she says she can tell what guys like sexually, and proceeds to guess what random guys like to have done to them.

Selby and Aileen are on a skating floor and Aileen starts kissing Selby. They then move outside and Aileen pushes her to the wall and starts kissing her wildly on her face and breasts.

There is one scene in which she gives a man a hand job. In one scene, a cop takes Aileen to a parking garage and it is implied that she either gave him oral sex or a hand job. In another, a man asks her to call him daddy while he has sex with her, and he begins to masturbate.

Violence & Gore: 7/10

There are scenes in which Aileen shoots men to death while riding in their car. Only two shootings are really graphic. There is also a very graphic scene where a woman is bound to a steering wheel and raped and tortured with a tire iron. She then shoots the man who tied her up several times before beating his body with the gun and dragging it into the woods.

Profanity: 8/10
