A porn film is playing on a TV during all of this, breasts and thrusting are seen on the TV, we also hear moaning. He fondles her genitals. She then unbuckles his pants, implying that she is going to give him a blowjob, but then the man starts to cry.
  • There are some sexual references in the movie, ranging from mild to incredibly explicit.
  • The main theme of the movie is how people get AIDS which is a sexually transmitted disease.

  • Two women simulate a sex act in front of two men. Breasts and butt's seen.
  • A man masturbates (nothing shown but him breathing), looking at pictures of scantly clad women. And is disrupted by a picture of a man (this is not graphic and played only for laughs).
