The movie involves talks of sex and sexual behaviour, there are references to masturbation and sexual desires. However the majority of the discussions are clinic in nature.

Sabina tells Jung to "punish" her as to sexually excite her, and on two occasions, we see Jung spanking Sabina's backside. One time, she is wearing a low cut top that shows her breast. We see her breast on another occasion as she lies in bed after (implied) sex with Jung.
