A woman is shown fully nude while talking to her neighbor. Her husband, fully nude, joins her, and they both talk to the neighbor. Nipples and vagina are visible on the woman, and the male's penis is visible.

Multiple types of alternate sexual experiences are explored, including sexual pleasure by pouring food on the body, acting like a baby, licking dirt, homosexual cuddling, sexual pleasure by levitating, pleasure by smacking one's head against another person's head, pleasure from pooping and leaving it in random places, pleasure by publicly rubbing your genitals against someone else, and pleasure by oral sex.

Between three and five non-explicit but nonetheless graphic uses of oral sex. No nudity is shown.

Two men are seen naked, their penis' visible.

A woman picks up a bottle with her vagina, fully visible.

A woman with breasts the size of watermelons strips topless and starts dancing. Both nipples are visible.

Two squirrels have sex together and fall through a ceiling. Non-graphic, though we do see thrusting.

A snake bursts out of a man's crotch as a joke.

Someone's release hits the camera lens at the end of the movie before the end credits.

Characters change from being excessively prude to complete and utter sl-ts when they receive concussions on their heads. All of these scenes are lighthearted and comedic.

A squirrel is run over by a car (offscreen), but it is resuscitated.

Several people smack their heads against each other's to get sexual pleasure.

The entire film centers on various alternative sexual experiences, some that are creative such as ta-tas instead of tits or funnin' instead of fuckin'. Sure older teens and adults will understand what they mean; but the alternative words will go over most kids heads therefore not making it too extreme when it comes to profanity.

A man swallows a cup filled with prozac pills.

The scene where a squirrel is run over might disturb some more sensitive viewers.

A scene where a famous star's poop falls out of an airplane, freezes, and hits a man on the head might offend some viewers.
