Sex & Nudity

Frequent conversations about sex, blow jobs, breasts, dicks and pornography.

We see a woman swimming in a pool with her top off. Breasts are visible.

In a montage of photo shoots a woman is seen wearing revealing clothes and cleavage. In one of them we see her fully topless.

A brief scene where a couple have sex. It lasts around twenty seconds and shows thrusting and breasts. Mildly graphic.

Another brief scene with sex that has no nudity, but thrusting as the man accidentally hurts the woman.

We hear banging noises as people discuss how a couple is having sex in there although it is later revealed that a woman is being violent beaten by her husband.

A woman's clothes are ripped off her and she is forced into a shower.

On the set of a porn film multiple jokes and references are made to sex and blow jobs. We briefly see a scene where a woman gives a man a blow job and a scene where a man is licking the woman's vagina . No actual nudity in either, but facial reactions and grunting is seen.

A woman is left in a room with multiple men. She begins to cry as they pull her dress off. Rape is inferred.

We see two glimpses of actual pornography although no nudity or sex and are very brief and blurred.

A young woman unties her bikini top, then leans over and takes off her friend's bikini top; the friend tries to slap away the other woman's hand, but relents and allows the tie to be undone. The mother of one of the young women makes a crude remark that they are in a "nudist colony".

A man tells his wife that she has to have sex with anyone he orders.

Violence & Gore

A man sells a young woman (who is his wife) for sex and we see five men entering a room; it is implied that they rape the young woman as we see one of the men lie on top of her and she shouts for help (we hear the man's zipper pull down and we see the man kissing and pawing the woman's chest and neck).

A man chokes a young woman and he holds his hand over her throat as he rips her shirt open and he thrusts on top of her; the man turns the young woman over and we hear him moaning sexually as the young woman tries to push him back. Later the man tries to apologize to the young woman for hurting her.

A man grabs a young woman's breasts and then spanks her on the backside.


About 19 F-words and its derivatives, 21 sexual references, 6 scatological terms, 27 anatomical terms (4 mild), 2 mild obscenities and 18 religious exclamations (e.g. 1 shocking use of Jesus F***ing Christ, Oh My god, Swear to God and Jesus.)

A woman makes a vaguely racial comment about a man's skin color and a derogatory term for African-Americans.

Name-calling (bag of bones, prude, sexy Raggedy Ann, Miss Holy Holy, drag, uptight idiots, cookie cutter idiots and crazy.)

Men snort cocaine.

People are shown smoking a marijuana cigarette.

Men and women drink alcoholic drinks.

Men and women smoke cigarettes throughout the movie.

Many of the scenes listed in the Violence/Gore category, while not very graphic, are quite upsetting and intense.

A woman abused by her husband tearfully begs her mother to let her stay with her, only to be turned away.
