Sex & Nudity
- The film mainly deals with the protagonist's comic attempts to abstain from committing adultery and other immoral acts, after he, along with many other men, send away their wives and children for the summer.
- There are various fantasy sequences throughout the film in which women lunge at the protagonist and kiss him passionately. Later, the protagonist attempts to seduce the object of his desire, and attempts to kiss her. They kiss a few times later in the film.
- There is the famous scene where Marilyn Monroe stands over the subway vents and her skirt gets blown by the wind from the subway. It is obvious that she is turned on by it. This was outrageous for 1955 but it's fine in today's standards.
Violence & Gore
- There is a dream sequence in which a man imagines his wife returning home and discovering his indiscretions. She shoots him repeatedly, however, the violence is portrayed in a comic, unrealistic fashion, and no blood is depicted.
- None whatsoever.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
