A teen couple plans to have sex throughout the film (the boy is concerned that he will leave high school still a virgin). A boy is heard masturbating, and a teen couple is heard having sex. Unmarried adults openly discuss their sexual activity. The script includes frank sexual discussions with sexual terms. A book shows explicit drawings of sexual positions—these are later animated during a hallucination sequence.
