Technically no, though there is a very disturbing scene where a women who is described as appearing young is stripped for the sake of public humiliation in front of a crowd and eaten by vampires. This may be triggering to read for those who’ve experienced SA or SA related trauma as her anguish is described in a lot of detail

The protagonists turn a five-year-old into a vampire. As such, even though she ages mentally, she always appears like a five-year-old. The protagonist’s internal monologue adultifies her pretty much immediately after she turns into a vampire, saying that she’s sensual and no longer a child. It’s implied they have a sexual relationship an unspecified number of years later. There is also blending of a father/daughter relationship with a romantic relationship

At the beginning of the book the mc is forced by circumstance to sleep in a coffin with another vampire, which he expresses discomfort over at first with the assumption that he’ll be claustrophobic. He then realizes that he feels fine bcus of vampire nature.
Later the same character is trapped against his will in a coffin and left banging on the walls and yelling for at least 12 hours. His fear is described in a good amount of detail

The book is an “interview” in which the vampire is telling his story to a mortal, so throughout the book the mortal asks questions and comments on the plot. Fourth wall breaking becomes much more prevalent in the second book onward, so that is about the extent of it in iwtv

No, though it’s relevant to mention that Anne Rice processed a lot of her grief concerning the death of her five year old daughter through writing this book, so themes of grief concerning loss of a child and loss in general are extremely prevalent and difficult to read even for those without trauma concerning those matters

A boner is briefly referenced and sexuality is a reoccurring theme, though there are no explicit references or descriptions of any actual sex. However, blood drinking is described as being an act very similar to sex for vampires, so reading a blood drinking scene can oftentimes feel like reading a sex scene

Anne Rice is known for her oftentimes unnecessarily sexual descriptions of none sexual situations, things, or characters

The ending it’s meta-ly referred to by the “interviewer” as extremely depressing and underwhelming. Readers may feel differently because of the implications of more to come at the end
