A major theme and recurring joke is one character's crush on his cousin and cousins who do not know they are cousins flirting with one another. S2E11: a woman that the protagonist believed was blind when they slept together tells him she is pregnant. When he asks her why they did not use protection, she says “You thought I was blind, remember?” implying that he stealthed her / only pretended to use protection. It turns out she was faking the pregnancy so it is possible she was lying about this. S3E1: while in jail, one male character implies to a man that he has been sexually assaulted every night by inmates. S3E2: one character says that in prison, you just have to "shut up and take it" (referring to sex) but with a wife, you just have to "shut up and give it". S3E3: one character says that he is a mix between an analyst and a therapist: an "analrapist". This shocks several people when they see his business card. S3E3: one character renames a film titled "The Sexual Assault of Abigail F." as "Losing it". It is played for laughs. In season 4, the community becomes inhabited entirely by sex offenders. Also in season 4, a woman has sex with a teenage boy, thinking he's an adult, while pretending to be a teenager herself in an attempt to frame him for statutory rape.
