|nudity||A man pursues a woman romantically but she is not interested in him, shouting at him to go away. A man shows up at a woman's workplace (a diner) and sings to her while bumping the counter with his groin as a flirting gesture, then presents her with a funeral wreath of flowers. One night a man slams a woman against his pickup truck (bearing the sign "Body and Booty by Branson") and kisses her as they grab and push each other against the truck by turns, kissing passionately and the woman slaps the man's bald head in excitement several times as they both grunt and groan. A woman asks a man what he wants and he replies that he wants to love her to which she says, "You ain't getting' nuthin'" and "Don't play with me. I'm a woman" and he replies, "Well, I'm a man." A few women and girls wear short skirts that reveal legs to the mid-thigh. In different scenes, one of several women wears a low-cut top that bares significant cleavage. A larger woman wears clingy tops and leggings that hug her curves and her large bosom. A woman wears a tight knit dress that shows off a large bosom and buttocks. A woman and a man lie asleep in bed one morning (bare shoulders and arms are seen above the covers and sex is implied from the night before); they rise in the morning and hurry to get dressed (we see the woman wearing a bra and skimpy panties that reveal bare back, thighs, legs, arms, shoulders and cleavage while the man is shown wearing boxers only and we see his bare chest, back, shoulders arms and legs to the thigh). A woman reads "Fifty Shades of Gray" in her bedroom when a boyfriend tosses pebbles at her window; she looks out and he asks her to come down and as they talk he kisses her briefly. Several couples kiss briefly in several scenes. A woman stares at an attractive male neighbor as he mows his grass; her female friend tells her over a cell phone to put on a bikini and go ask to "whack his weeds" (have sex) and the friend's next advice is to say, "I'll have my tubes untied for a man who is fiscally responsible"; the friend then says to look to see if his feet are big (referring to genital size) and to stare at his zipper and look for a bulge in the crotch. A single mom and her male neighbor flirt with smiles and double-entendres about constructing a stage set and he uses the terms "pounding," "hit it," "plenty of wood," "I'll do anything you want"; she says she knows what she likes and what she wants until he begins to stutter and walks away, saying they'll talk later. A woman says to a man she meets, "Damn, T.K., you fine!" A man drives to a woman's house one night and as she walks out on her balcony and he tells her he loves her four times. A woman wearing a short, tight black dress that hugs her curves and reveals moderate cleavage and bare legs to the mid-thigh walks into a car dealership where she tells her ex-husband (a salesman) that she has a boyfriend and to leave them alone. Five women say they will go to a Chippendales male strip show and the camera cuts to the women as they sit close to a sort of runway in a club and wave dollar bills and shout as a man's bared calves and feet walk by and stop. A little girl tells her mom that she knows when the mom has a boyfriend in the house overnight because the toilet seat is always up in the morning. A single mom discovers that her middle school daughter had her first menstrual period two months previously and is sad about now knowing about it. A teacher tells a mom that the mom's daughter was caught making out with a boy in the school restroom and the girl says the boy was not a very good kisser. A woman's ex-husband forbids her to have a boyfriend. We hear that a single mother used an anonymous sperm donor and the child is upset that she has no father.|

Male business partners at a publishing house belittle a woman with seniority for having a child and she looks embarrassed. A woman argues loudly with another woman, screaming because her son ran away from the other woman's house late at night while babysitting; men and women searched for the boy without success and the mother screamed loudly and threw books and papers off a table, shouting at friends to get out of her house. A woman argues loudly with her ex-husband about raising their daughter according to a set of reasonable rules and about not giving the girl a cell phone, makeup and too much freedom.

A preteen boy goes missing one night and returns the next morning when he says that he took a bus across town, where his estranged father took his money and his Gameboy, sold it for drug money and left him on the street alone at night; he says that he had to walk miles back home and that it took until morning, his mother shouts at him and they both cry for a few minutes.
