It should be noted that the sex between the two women is simulated and prosthetics are used; nevertheless, it is shot realistically and still very explicit.

The are multiple explicit love scenes between two women with graphic nudity. The most explicit scene lasts nearly 7 minutes. The 2 wpmen kiss passionately and strip nude, and suck on each others breasts. They are shown performing explicit cunnilingus on each other for an extended period (with vulva briefly visible) of time from several positions, including sixty-nine and from behind. They then finger each other graphically before climaxing.

A young man and woman have sex. They are fully nude (with her breasts and buttocks visible, and his buttocks and genitals momentarily visible) as the woman thrusts on top of him. They kiss passionately and the man rolls over so he is on top. He thrusts until they both climax. At one point, his penis is seen on her leg. This scene lasts around two minutes. Added: At the end of the sex act, the woman separates from the man and his still-erect penis is clearly visible in a relatively close-up view for a few seconds.

There are several other scenes involving brief nudity, passionate kisses and sexual references.

Two teenage girls argue about whether one of them is a lesbian; the argument escalates with name-calling and accusations until they lunge at each other and fight briefly (we see them pulling each other's hair and yelling) until they are separated by others.

A woman and a younger woman argue about one of them being unfaithful; the argument includes yelling and shoving as the accused denies her infidelity; one shoves the other, shakes her then slaps her in the face before shoving her out of the apartment and slamming the door (the glass door shatters).

Swearing occurs infrequently, but is strong when it does.

None of this is done to excess, but more in a social manner.
