Most intense/potentially disturbing scenes occur between 0:30:16-0:31:16 and 1:08:35-1:08:59. Sexual abuse in the film is part of its broader thematic exploration of LGBT+ rights, treatment and culture. For example; the uncertainty, for many people within this community, of whether a place they are visiting is going to be safe for and accepting of them or not. The topic is treated relatively sensitively. Some verbal sexual abuse occurs following the second timestamp (1:08:35-1:08:59), but is subverted by the protagonist into something positive/empowering.
After (2019) (Movie)
After Lucia (Movie)
The plot revolves around a rape scene that occurs early on in the film.
In 'Yes Men' (S01E15), a one-time female character can control men and uses her ability to seduce them. While the male characters act as if the resulting relationship is consensual, it is the product of this mind control. There is a scene where she and one of the lead characters begin to kiss passionately in a hotel room and it is strongly implied that they have sex while he is under her influence. For an entire seven-episode arc (S04E16-S04E22), a recurring female character controls a different lead male character and manipulates him so that he believes he is in love with her. While there is no on-screen sexual relationship, it is implied that one occurs. The male character, when he is no longer controlled, confronts the woman for violating his agency.
Chappelle tells a joke about a superhero who has to rape women in order to sustain his powers (22:00-24:00).

Chappelle jokes about people giving oral sex in exchange for basic resources such as food during World War Two (45:00-47:00). Chappelle mentions the fact that Bill Cosby allegedly raped 54 women during the 70s, joking about the high number of women involved (48:20-49:20). He speaks in general terms about Cosby, the related rape allegations and backlash against jokes Chappelle has previously made on the topic until the 55:00 minute mark. From the 1:00:00-1:02:02 mark, Chappelle mentions Cosby again, saying that ‘[he’s] not defending him,’ but observing that Cosby has ‘a valuable legacy,’ that cannot be ‘thrown away,’ comparing him to the superhero mentioned earlier in the show.

Alien (Movie)
Worthy of note: phallic/yonic imagery is used throughout the movie in ways which often evoke violent symbolism of rape and assault.

I’m going to attack them sexually,” regarding the choices he made regarding this imagery during the film's creation.
Alien 3 (Movie)
A man forces a woman down and kisses her. Worthy of note: near the end of the film, two characters are attacked while having sex. The implicit sexual nature of the attack with the glib tone of the scene may be uncomfortable for some viewers.

Amelie (Movie)
Woman is shown having sex. She is largely disinterested in the encounter but her consent is not violated.
A grown man's sexual fixation on a teenager is central to the plot of this film. A middle aged man observes his teenage daughter's friend and has sexual fantasies about her. The same teenage girl implies that this kind of behaviour is a regular occurrence from older men. She implied that she was once sexually exploited by a photographer. Later, the same adult man who has fixated on her throughout the film makes sexual advances towards her, undressing her (with the intention of committing statutory rape), but stops when she discloses that she is a virgin. In other scenes, an adult films the household without their knowledge, the implication that this is a regular occurrence and is done with the intention of capturing intimate and private moments on film without consent. In one scene, an adult man forces a kiss onto another adult man. Worthy of note; virulent and at times violent homophobia is an ongoing theme.
S1E2: an omniscient god informs a slave that his relative has been murdered for refusing to submit to a rape. A main character frequently flirts/sleeps with very young women. A female character attempts to coerce a male character into accepting oral sex after he explicitly declines her offer. He eventually manages to rebuff her despite her physical attempts to force herself on him.
Passing mention of rape, metaphorical (i.e. 'rape of our country,' 36:25). Prison guard threatens prisoners, collectively, with sexual violence (01:07:00). A man is gang-raped in prison, scene is relatively graphic (1:21:00-1:23:00). The direct aftermath of this attack (the victim lying in a prison hospital ward) is depicted until the 1:23:49 mark. The attack is alluded to on multiple occasions in later scenes. Between 1:26:50-1:27:16, the victim walks through the prison canteen, obviously injured from the previous attack, while his attackers jeer and mock him.
A teenage girl of colour is in a relationship with a white adult man who is her boss. Though it is never discussed, there is obviously a strong power imbalance present in the situation. The protagonist is paid money to go on dates and perform sexual acts, though little is shown.
Season one (Murder House): S1E1: a woman is raped by a teenage boy wearing a rubber suit which conceals his identity (she ostensibly consents to have sex but believes him to be her husband).

The man in the rubber suit appears frequently and his identity is ambiguous until S1E8. S1E2: a woman is held captive by a home invader and told first to undress and then to put on a nurse's costume. S1E3: a man violently rapes his maid, on the premise that they two had had consensual sex in the past, until he is interrupted.

Homophobia is a theme throughout the season. A man is diagnosed as a chronic masturbator and is seen masturbating in some scenes; could be interpreted as threatening behaviour. S2E2: a woman is called a 'slut' and a 'whore' by one of the doctors overseeing the asylum. It is revealed that she was committed to the asylum by her husband who punished her for engaging in extramarital sex by accusing her of nymphomania.

S2E3: near the end of the episode, one of the asylum staff attempts to rape a patient and then surgically mutilates her. S2E4: it is revealed that one patient killed her father for sexually abusing her.

S2E8: in a flashback, it is revealed that one of the patients was raped in jail. At the end of the episode, a man intends to rape a woman in revenge for her treatment of him but before he can do so she kills him.

In another scene during this episode, a young woman is drugged and gang-raped by a group of men at a fraternity party. Discussions of and references to this incident occur periodically throughout the season. S3E3: a woman makes sexual advances towards a minotaur. At another point in the episode, it is revealed that a woman has been sexually abusing her college-aged son. Eventually, he beats her to death when she makes sexual advances towards him.

S4E5: a reference is made to the fact that an upper-class family is particularly prone to mental health problems due to inbreeding. Season five (Hotel): S5E1: a hotel guest is shown taking heroin and then being violently raped by a faceless demon.

S5E8: a character is said to have checked in and molested a 10-year-old boy, leaving behind polaroids of this crime. S5E11: a woman is violently raped by a faceless demon in a flashback. Season six (Roanoke): S6E3: a character is found having sex with a witch while local people look on and touch themselves sexually; he claims to have no memory of this incident after the fact.

This is not only unchecked but often encouraged. There are numerous instances throughout the series where women are objectified by the four male protagonists. This varies from ogling from afar to making inappropriate and sexist comments.

Big Love (TV)
The show follows the life of a polygamist family that has close ties to a mormon cult. If all the wives of the main family are married by choice, there are many characters who are forced into marriages by their prophet. While most of the cult members "consent" it is a result of their upbringing in the cult. The main wife struggles with being in the polygamist marriage, and it is often suggested she agreed to it because she could no longer have children. Sex is frequently viewed as a measure of worth in the relationship. During the first few seasons the teenage son is in a relationship with an older teenage girl who pressures him into having sex, and he eventually does cave in. He goes through a period of feeling guilty and impure because of the loss of his virginity. There is a story line through S1-4 which involves sexual and romantic tension between the youngest wife, and the teenage son of another wife. This story line comes to a head in S3E6 when they see each other naked, and in S4E3 when they kiss. There is also a 16 year old girl who is engaged to the elderly prophet, and a scene vaguely impliying that they have sex. The same girl runs away from the cult in S2. There is a scene in S3 where she is hitchhiking with a truck driver who tells her to scoot closer to him. In S2 the 18 years old daughter dates a man who is 28 but it is treated as if it is normal. Because the daughter wont have sex with him, he sees other women. The daughter is given advice from one of the mothers to make herself more desirable around him so he won't leave her. She eventually gives in to having sex with him, but the two break up and she finds out that she is pregnant. The two get back together and eventually get married. In S2E9 a former coworker makes rude sexual comments about the youngest wife. One of the wives who is the daughter of the prophet grapples with her sense of agency, and it is revealed in S3E3 that she was forced into a marriage with a grown man at 16 by her own father. It is revealed that the two had sex and had a child together that the mother had to leave when she left the marriage. In S4 her mother is forced by her son to marry the same man. In S4E7-9 there is a storyline about a sudden abundance of children of incest. It is revealed in S4E9 that a man has been using in vitro fertilization to force women to carry children of incest. In S4E9 the wives are forced to publicly out themselves as part of their husband's plans, though they are all reluctant to. In S3 there is a storyline about the prophet being put on trial for forcing underage girls to get married. The prophet's team actively tries to prevent victims from standing trial. In S3E4 one of the victims is humiliated while standing trial and the prophet is declared not guilty. In S4 a character stalks a man and the two become a couple. In S5E3 it is revealed that one of the wives was only 16 when she married the husband.

S1E8: a teenage boy and girl are lying in bed kissing. The teenage boy attempts to push the teenage girl's head towards his genitals, indicating that he would like her to perform oral sex.

It is revealed that the boy involved has a history of attempting to pressure girls into performing oral sex on him. This scene opens up a wider conversation about consent during the course of the episode. In the same episode, another teenage boy and girl kiss one another, getting carried away so that their crotches accidentally touch. The teenage girl is ashamed of herself for being too forward, although the boy has no problem with what happened between them. The teenage girl's parents assume that the boy assaulted her.

Both seasons of the anime heavily imply child sexual abuse and sex slavery in the backstories of the main characters. This is more graphically depicted in the latter half of Book of Circus through a series of flashbacks, and in Book of the Atlantic.

S2E3: mention of paedophilia. S3E3: Discussion of child pornography, violations of the privacy of a teenage boy used for the purposes of coercion.

The main character's director also forcibly kisses her in one scene. He later asks her inappropriate sexual questions and tells her to masturbate as part of her 'training' for her role. Worthy of note: another character later suggests performing sexual favors for the director, although it is unclear if she is joking or not. At one point the main character goes to a club with another woman, who sneaks ecstasy into the main character's drink without her consent, although the main character clearly knows the drink is drugged. Later, after she has had the drink, the main character abruptly comes to her senses while being kissed and groped by a man in the bathroom. While we do not see him forcibly assault her, she is obviously high by this point and unable to give consent. After leaving the club, the main character takes a taxi with the other woman, who puts her hand between the main character's (clothed) legs and attempts to grope her. The two later have a sex scene in which the other woman is very aggressive, pushing the main character down on the bed and performing oral sex on her without verbal consent. Although at the beginning of this scene the main character actively kisses and undresses the other woman, and does not resist the sex in any way, she is still heavily under the influence at this point. Although it is never stated that incest or child sexual abuse has occurred, the main character and her mother have an extremely unhealthy relationship, elements of which may be perceived as incestuous.

Later on, the main character is given a ride home by a male high school senior (age unknown, but he could be a legal adult). Shortly after the only other high schooler gets out of the car, the driver pulls over and gets into the backseat with the main character. He pressures her into playing a game of truth or dare, taking his shirt off and trying to get her to do the same.

He recognizes that even if nothing physically violent took place, the car scene depicts something terribly violating.

The Goldfinch (Movie)
Goldfinger (Movie)
There is a scene in which the main character attempts to initiate sex with a woman (openly a lesbian) in a barn. She clearly rejects his advances, both verbally and physically, prompting a fight scene in which she tries to stop him from kissing her, and which ends with him on top of her as she punches him but eventually relents. This scene is largely played for laughs. One of the running themes in the film is the moral ambiguity of the main character. Arguably, the above scene could be interpreted as an exploration of this theme.

Worthy of note: one of the main characters is played by Charlie Chaplin, who has been embroiled in sexual abuse allegations during recent years.

He shows her a button-cam video that a reporter took while pretending to interview for a job of the man groping her breasts; this is shown from the chest point of view, since the camera was attached to her chest. At the time of the flashback, the woman doesn't think that this is a big deal and signs up as a rewards customer out of spite for her now-ex boyfriend. This is supposed to demonstrate one of the many ways in which she was a horrible person while alive on Earth, but is also somewhat played for humour. S2E7: A character implies she was sexually abused by a teacher while in school. A minor character is revealed to have sexually harassed his female employees. A character films two other characters having sex without their knowledge.

She kills as a form of revenge against her attackers who walked free.
In prison, a male character is approached by another (visibly physically stronger) male character who makes a suggestive comment to him and touches his face without consent. Worthy of note: In the same prison, a female character is aggressively harassed and cornered by several male characters, though not with the goal of sexually assaulting her but rather with the goal of killing her. Though sexual slurs are used, the situation in itself is not sexual.

The intentions of the female character are never explicitly stated to be sexual, but it is worthy of note that she wished to simulate romantic reciprocation from somebody who did not naturally provide it. Worthy of note: at the holiday party, Hermione talks about her date being 'all hands' and eats a smelly hors-d'oeuvre to put him off.

Discussion/mention of sexual harassment and of a teacher touching a student inappropriately, non-explicit. The situation in which this inappropriate touching occurs is shown, although the touching itself is not depicted in any great detail.

Hollyoaks (TV)
This is a long-running soap with many characters, so some stories are in the past and will be referenced infrequently in present episodes. Stories are normally sensitively, albeit imperfectly. As this is a pre-watershed program violence has to be off-screen but events are often played for emotional drama, and will be discussed frequently in a way that may cause some viewers distress.

Hotel Artemis (Movie)
Hotel Du Nord (Movie)
Hotel Rwanda (Movie)
Women appearing underage is presented as a desirable trait by multiple people. Man refers to some women in the sex industry as ‘teeny-boppers,’ implying that their lack of experience (real or apparent) is a significant part of what makes them sexually appealing. Potentially exploitative sexual relationships/dynamics are a continuing theme; glorification of sex with very young people (teenagers, mostly girls), and of unprotected sex, as well as people entering into sex work in order to remedy financial struggles. Many young women are encouraged to take up sex work with promises of money and other luxuries. In one scene, a man pretends to be the adult friend of a young girl’s family, ‘taking advantage’ of her sexually. The actress is instructed to act as though she is ‘never fully engaged’ in the sex, and the actor is told that he should begin undressing her and assume that he can continue although she never explicitly expresses consent. Later, she talks about how much she 'hated' filming the scene. References are made to websites which specialise in pornographic videos specifically of exploited teenagers. One storyline addresses the prevalence of ‘forced oral sex’ and other abuse in pornography, often taken to extremes (one woman is made to vomit and lick her vomit off the floor). Women are verbally abused; often, there is a racial element to this abuse. A woman jokes that a dog ‘tried to rape her.’
