S1E1: A character is coerced into publicly having sex with a pig, which is partially shown on screen.
S1E2: A character is given a drink called "compliance," which leads her to agree to be part of a sex ring. There is sexual harassment before she is pressured into going into the ring and taking off her shirt by two men and a woman, who also make other sexual comments. While she says "yes" in the videos of her sexual encounters, which are distributed throughout the community, she is hesitant to do so, and it is clear that saying "no" is not an option.
S2E3: Mention of pedophilia.
S3E3: A character is shown masturbating to child p**n (although nothing on his laptop is shown) and is later arrested. This character also interacts with (but does not assault) a child.
S4E1: Two women are forced to kiss a man several times. A third woman is tortured when she refuses to kiss someone. There is one suggestion of a main character forcing a woman into sex.
S4E2: The woman coerced into doing p**n by the judges of a talent show is referenced.
S4E6: A man is shown spanking his girlfriend during sex, despite her repeated requests for him not to do so. In the context of the episode, it is made clear that he is doing this specifically to cause her pain, in order to utilize a device that turns her pain into his pleasure.

In the episode Black Museum, in the third story of this anthology episode, a life-like (and possibly consciousness) hologram is forced to undergo holographic torture via an electric chair - being restrained to the device, and unable to escape.
This is clearly shown to be a painful and harmful abuse of this hologram.

In San Junipero two gay characters die, but their relationship is framed as something very positive, they both die of oldage and they find love in the "afterlife" so imo it does not fall into the bury your gays trope

in S1:E2 there is a man on the bike who watches this show where food is shoved into fat people's faces and he is laughing at them. He also watches another show where water is fired at fat people dressed in yellow scrubs and stuff because that's the workers gear. He laughs hysterically at them, and bullies all of the workers.

A major character is supposedly fifteen (actress looks like she's in her early to mid twenties though) and the male character she's seeing is a bit older than her, but they have been going to the same school. It's unclear how much older he is, but the mom does note that she's unhappy he's sleeping with her daughter due to her daughter's age.

Every ending is intense and usually not ideal. Still, I would say that Nosedive, San Junipero, Arkangel, Hang the DJ, Black Museum, Striking Vipers, and Rachel Jack and Ashley Too have good, satisfying endings.
