Animal heads mounted on a wall. Briefly seen, not the focus of the scene.

Towards the end of the movie, when a character enters a store.

Second half of the film there’s a lot of blood but I wouldn’t say Gore and definitely no excessive gore. Just blood. (Gore is when there’s flesh hanging off and other disgusting things but this does NOT happen in pulp fiction)

The man is attracted to men. Whether or not he is also attracted to women or other genders is entirely irrelevant. Gay and straight are not the only sexualities, so I’m not sure why this is even being discussed. Anyway, it’s a rape scene, and the kind that is played for laughs/shock value because a man is being raped. While it is satisfying to see the rapist get murdered it is unsatisfying that it is a harmful portrayal of the queer community and the kink community along with also playing up male rape victims as something funny.

The most graphic example is a man in a leather suit who rapes other men in a dungeon of sorts, but it's also worth noting there's another scene where a character performs oral on his girlfriend. Not explicitly depicted, but implied as his head lowers offscreen towards her bottom half. Another character also mentions her tongue piercing "helps with f******o"
