A character shaves quite often, but nothing really violent about it. There is, however, a scene where suicide is contemplated during shaving.

Penis is severed in car crash blowjob accident. Someone is kicked in the crotch so hard their skeleton practically explodes out of their body. Threats for this to happen again. Probably many more graphic triggers.
