There is never any actual assault on camera but a lot of close calls. Most of the movie revolves around sex, and desire that feels nonconsensual. Particularly involving womens bodies. Also a lot of coercion. This movie triggered me more than ones with quick assault scenes that I can just mute for a couple of minutes. If this is your trigger I would not recommend watching, or really taking care while watching.
