Description

Throughout seasons 1 and 3, rape, torture and paedophilia are common themes even if little is depicted on screen graphically. In season 2, one character's wife is raped. Her assault is mentioned on various occasions, but no details or flashbacks are given. Later in the season, another character has a flashback to her childhood, in which she is following an older man into a van. It is implied that she was raped, although it is never shown. S1E6: a woman rapes a drunk man as a form of revenge against her husband. Moments after realising what was done to him, the man makes her leave the house. S1E6: a woman flirts and initiates sex with a man who is very drunk and hesitant to engage. The man then leads the rest of the sexual encounter but regrets it afterward (44:30-46:30). She reveals she wanted to sleep with someone as revenge on her cheating partner. She took advantage of the man when he was intoxicated, but it was the man who performed the rest of the sexual act.
