- A husband and wife are in bed having sex; we see mostly their heads and the male's bare upper body moving, but you can see one of the wife's breasts very briefly

- One completely minor female character is very briefly shown nude from the backside as she runs out of a (dark) room.

- In one scene we can hear the intense sounds of lovemaking from behind a closed door; nothing is shown.

- In another scene, a man rapes his wife

- A woman, staying for a sleepover with a married female friend, explains that lovemaking can be pleasurable by telling her to shut her eyes and imagine a man and then gently stroking her torso and possibly lower (off screen). It is not clear whether the gasps of pleasure are a result of the fantasy or the physical contact.

- A man and woman have sex, she is still clothed but lies on top of his naked body. He thrusts into her from underneath.

Moderate, but infrequent

Wine is drunk with most meals; in one scene the female character is clearly drunk and ends up totally disgracing herself by stumbling into a candelabra.
