No sex scenes, though there is much talk of sex. Full frontal male and female nudity, but this is not shown in a sexual context but relates to the nudists in the movie.

George and Linda come apon a man in the woods in early scene and you see him fully nude. Several butt shots throughout.

The side of a man's penis is scene pretty clearly in one shot; when George and Linda are in bed at Elyceum (or country lodge) the man stands in front of George whom wakes up surprised as he bares the side of his penis in front of his face.

In a scene near the end, you see many bare naked older male and females running full on when running from a car (mostly breasts and bare butts are seen).

People are shown skinny-dipping and we see one woman fully nude (her bare breasts are visible) and a man wearing jockey shorts jumps in water and then removes his shorts under the water (his bare chest and abdomen are shown).

A woman removes her top during a protest and we see her and several other women featured on a TV news report with their bare breasts diffused (a man also joins in and his bare chest is shown).

Two nude men are shown on Segway (their bare buttocks, back and legs are visible).

Two men (one nude except for what looks like a jock strap over his genitals) squash grapes in a barrel.

A photograph is shown of a man and a woman having sex (the woman's bare breast, leg and hip are visible) with the man kissing the woman's neck as she straddles him (we see his bare side and arm).

A husband and his wife kiss, the man closes the door and it is implied that they have sex. A husband and his wife kiss, we then see them in bed as the man rolls off the woman and it is implied that they have had sex (we see her bare shoulders and upper chest and his bare chest and back).


Words such as fuck, shit, damn etc are used. Not excessively, but still at many occasions in the film. There is talk of sex very graphic for comedy 7/10


Characters smoke pot in some scenes. In one scene, characters ingest Ayahuasca tea which contains DMT, a powerful hallucinogen. No drunk scenes, although you can see characters holding a beer at some occasions.
