(Spoilers) A couple videos feature violence on a character from their significant other. In "Second Honeymoon," the man is killed and betrayed by his wife. In "The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger," the boyfriend gaslights and manipulates Emily and another girl, and actually causes Emily harm by cutting her stomach open and breaking her bones/beating her up.

Easy to miss but in the third story a man holds a clearly real mayfly by the wings, it's shot very up close but very blurry. His friend then dares him to eat it and he does. It's unclear if the actor really puts it in his mouth or let it go just before

[Pre-segments] A woman is sexually assaulted in a parking lot.

[Segment one] A woman falls unconcious due to alcohol/drugs and the man she's with genuinely considers assaulting her.
The same man from this encounter tries to sleep with another woman with dubious consent. She does not look comfortable with what's happening.

[Segment two] A man tries desperately to coerce his girlfriend to film them having sex. She repeatedly says no and he refuses to let up, continuing to try and take her clothes off and kissing her even when she tries to shrug him off. They thankfully get interrupted before he can continue trying to convince her.

A man is very close to full decapitation in the second segment.

Later, we see the very graphic results of a full decapitation of an unrelated character.

Mild spoiler on what the scene is at the bottom.

Only one instance of vomiting (27:08-27:26) at 27:08 (you hear a cough) 27:11 (you see the person coughing) 27:19 (disgustingly realistic sound and seeing sickness but it's rather blurry/shaky cam) 27:24 (long burp/retch but by this point camera pans away) -----

I've searched so long for this movie on this site (search function doesn't work too well with /'s in the title) and on other sites to find out about this aspect and not knowing how often someone gets sick put me on the edge of my seat. It's only this short instance and the bad part about it is definitely the sound, not as much the visuals. If you want to, skip this scene - the rest of the movie is definitely great! -----

SPOILER: When a lady rips someone's penis off, as the camera man goes away from behind the bed towards the door, he pans towards the lady. As soon as she starts coughing, this is your cue to skip. It does not start immediately as she starts coughing.
