Sex & Nudity

Contains strong sex references and frequent sexualised nudity

A bedroom scene includes a married couple (the man is bare-chested and the wife's bare breasts are shown) when another man and woman enter the room (they are clothed); the clothed woman lies in bed with the husband, who tells the other man to touch his wife's breasts, he does so and the two men tell each other they love each other like brothers while the wife strokes the other woman's outer thigh.

A man sits up in bed, gets out of bed (we see full back nudity from head to toe), wraps a towel around his waist and reaches a plastic razor to shave his pubic area, and two women are seen in his bed, one sitting with bare breasts revealed, the second woman is nude, lying with her back to the camera (we see bare back, buttocks and legs); we hear that the three people had a "threesome,".

Several morning scenes in different houses and apartments show couples in bed and sex is implied: in one scene, a shirtless man lies face down on the floor and a woman lies on her back in bed, covered by a quilt up to her waist; her bikini top has been pulled up over her breasts, which are fully visible, along with bare abdomen and shoulders.

Four scenes show a man and a woman from the shoulders, up, clothed and kissing; in one scene, a woman's hands are shown reaching for a trousers' zipper in a close up and the scene ends (sex is implied).

Many scenes take place in a male exotic dance club and feature shirtless men with shaved bodies; we see them shaving their legs and underarms in bathroom sinks and standing in the back room of their dance club, nude except for brief style underwear, and their trouser waistlines come just above the pubic area, showing the top part of the hips.

A close up scene in a male exotic dance club features a dancer looking at a suction device connected to another dancer's penis off screen; we see a hand operating a suction lever and hear that dancers attempt to enlarge their penises to be better outlined in thong underwear while onstage.

A man teaches a new exotic dancer how to "fuck the mirror" in a gym in order to present the most satisfying suggestive dancing to women spectators that have boring or no husbands; the man teaching thrusts his pelvis close to the mirror, then places the other man in front of him and guides his hips with his hands as the scene ends.

A woman suggests to her brother that he is gay when she finds sailor outfits in a bag and he admits that he is an exotic dancer; she attends the club and watches him and his friend dance and her eyes grow wide and her mouth drops open before she leaves quickly.

A 19-year-old male exotic dancer thanks his older mentor, because he can now "have money and fuck who I want to fuck".

Older male dancers call a newcomer to the group a "virgin"; a club owner tells the new man that he can only have his cherry popped once (the new man's first dance was awkward, like first sex) and must now learn to dance better and get costumes.

A man leaving a female friend's apartment stops outside the door and pantomimes the question about whether he is well endowed and she laughs and closes the door.

A woman asks a man to stay the night at her apartment and go to breakfast with her and he accepts; the shot fades to black as they smile and hold hands (sex is implied).

Violence & Gore

Contains infrequent moderate violence

4/10

At a sorority house party, a fraternity student punches a male dancer after accusing him of giving a woman the drug Ecstasy; the dancer and another dancer punch eight fraternity students, push them down, swing fake police batons at them, and run out of the house (no one is injured and no blood appears).

A drug dealer and two thugs trash a house, looking for illegal drugs as the owner enters; a fistfight ensues between the owner and the two thugs, but no one is injured and after an argument is settled, the dealer and the thugs leave.

Several men and women drink whiskey and beer at night, we hear vomiting and see a man wretch, followed by a little vomit on the rug; the next morning we see a miniature pig as it walks up to a small area of drying vomit and begins to nibble at it.

Profanity

Contains frequent strong language

About 156 F-words and its derivatives, 3 sexual references, 39 scatological terms, 12 anatomical terms, 5 mild obscenities, 2 religious profanities and 4 religious exclamations.

Name-calling (crazy, stupid, vampire, big dog, punk, tall Paul, old stripper and Anaconda.)

Stereotypical references to men, women, male strippers, older women, drug users, drug dealers, Mexicans, club owners, construction foremen, bankers, fraternities, sororities, bisexuals and homosexuals.

Contains drug use and drug dealing theme

A husband and his wife swallow illegal drug capsules and say they will have sex and the scene ends.

A man offers a 19-year-old male dancer a chance to sell drugs and the younger man accepts.

A fraternity member accuses a male dancer of giving a sorority woman the drug Ecstasy and a fight ensues.

A woman finds her brother passed out on the bedroom floor of a mutual male friend and we understand that the he had taken drugs and is unconscious and we then see him as he wakes up groggily in the backseat of her car while she tells him he must stop the late nights and drugs.

Several bar scenes feature a large bar in an exotic dance club where men and women drink mixed cocktails and beer from glasses and shots from shot glasses as male dancers perform and clearly become very drunk.

Dancers drink whiskey in the back room between acts and share marijuana cigarettes.

A dancer passes out on the floor in the back room and the other men leave him to sleep off the alcohol and marijuana.

A man smokes cigarettes in several scenes.

Contains brief threat

The fights may be intense for some.
