While the sex is consensual, it is unenthusiastic and can be uncomfortable for some.

While making out with a girl Stingo repeatedly attempts to grope her in ways she's clearly not comfortable with. There is also a scene where Nathan, while manic, sticks his hand up Sophie's dress without her consent while he degrades her (the camera stays at eye level so it is unclear what he's specifically doing, but Sophie's reaction implies SA)

Outside of the mention of lynching and use of 1 n-word. The film relates to and uses n*zi imagery and the suffering of the holocaust. While this is done to show their evil it may be triggering to some
