Sex & Nudity

  • A thing to remember is that some of the full on penetration scenes are done with CGI. But some are real, performed by porn actors, whose screen names are listed in the end credits.
  • It is explained that a young girl started masturbating when she was 2 years old, and includes a shot of a young girl from the neck up looking down, implying that she is masturbating.
  • Two 7 year old girls are seen entering a bathroom and lowering their panties. They proceed to rub their crotches into the wet bathroom floor. There is no nudity, but both are shown to be enjoying it. In the uncut version, you can see their partially obscured pubic area as they take off their panties, but it's for less than a second. In the Greek blu ray version, one girl is seen climaxing from the act before being interrupted by their mother.
  • A 14 year old girl is shown losing her virginity by the hands of an 18 year old. Although the scene is short explicit shots of penetration are shown, and there is moaning.
  • In the Greek blu ray a 10 year old girl is shown sitting in her fathers lap and grinding, he pushes her off after a few seconds, but the whole scene has a comedic tone to it.
  • Two 16 year old girls have a competition to see who can have sex with the most men in the duration of a train ride. Two shots show men from behind thrusting, no nudity.
  • A teenage girl enthusiastically gives a man a blowjob and spits out the semen. There are several shots of his genitals (prosthetic, per interviews) visibly in her mouth. The Director's Cut version is much more hardcore, with semen spurting out of the penis. Close-up shots of erect penises and the outside and inside of a woman's vulva.
  • A man performs real cunnilingus on a woman.
  • The Australian version mostly contains a constant flow of close of shots of men's penises comprising of all types of men, of different sizes, erections, and skin tone.
  • Australian version shows no vaginal scenes.

Violence & Gore

  • Volume I of Nyphomaniac isn't as violent as Volume II.
  • Some occasional slapping, hitting and typical moderate violence.


  • 30+ uses of the F-word, 3 uses of the C-word, along with countless other anatomical and scatological profanities.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A cigarette is seen in a man's hand

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene in which Mrs. H confronts her husband at Joe's apartment with her three young children and leaving in hysterics is very emotionally intense.
  • The tone is fairly light at first until the stories become disturbing and graphic.
