Nope not a single one in my whole endeavor of skyrim!
when i'm playing i'll let my 6 year old daughter watch and will only tell her to leave if the violence is a bit too much or just have her shut her eyes/ears for a few seconds.
the sex content is mostly in books, or dialogue and definitely not the in-your-face type.
even when sexual/violent dialogue starts up i can just speed through it or hit mute for my daughter.
for a supposed "mature" game, it is severely lacking. in fact, i've made the case that bethsoft purposefully made the game devoid of true violent and sexual content so that, by word-of-mouth, the game would be bought by parents for their children once they realized how tame it actually is.
No sexual content? Ahum...
Well...no sexual content aside that which you create yourself.
ther are none, other than the lusty argonian maid
Go to Yngvild and read Arondil`s Journals.
It`s implied but even implied necrophilia might be on a parent`s no-no list.
You can sell the journals to Vekel the Man even if you`re not a member of the Thieve`s Guild.
My ratings for Skyrim are PG for sex and R for violence(PG-13 without the decaps) but I`m more open-minded than the average parent
Oh dear. I shall have to look at that.
btw if you have the Dead Thrall spell , Arondil is an excellent mage who also has a permanent corpse.
And please leave those dead milkmaids alone ! They`ve suffered enough ! (shiver)
Stay on topic please! Oh! That was the topic.
So, one of the Thieves' Guild guys talking about how he had all the women he could bed actually meant that he was selling furniture to the ladies of Skyrim?
Or rather, your spouse lies down and you stand next to the bed for as many hours as you want.
If morality is your parents' issue, they can read some candid reviews done by Christian gamers (if that interests you and your family at all).

I just read them over and they pretty much tell it like it is. I've never visited their websites prior to doing research for this thread. I would avoid christwire dot com's review as that is meant to be intentionally inflammatory.
Personally, I'm not a Christian, I'm a Buddhist. I don't have any issue with Skyrim, my 5 year old son often watches or plays along. He has his own Argonian character that he plays from time to time. The violence is what really makes this an M rated game. If you're able to separate fantasy violence from reality, it's not an issue. Exploring Draugr (zombie) infested crypts doesn't frighten my son because he knows it's not real. However, watching some of the more dynamic scenes in movies like Harry Potter or the Avengers does scare him. Go figure, but that's how he thinks. I still remember Resident Evil 1 scaring the bejezus out of me.
This is probably me looking too deep into things, but there's a quest where you have to help a guy stop a Dunmer from defiling his family's tomb. The Dunmer writes him a message saying, "I'll show you how we deal with ancestors in Morrowind!"
....all I can think of is the Dunmer woman in Oblivion who asks you what the punishment is for necrophilia in Cyrodiil.
I do not recommend having your dad read this thread
Well there's a book called "the lusty argonian maid" and there is Riften's town slut known as Haelga. But other than that, not much really. All there is is just talking of sex, unfortunately, no live sex.
If you go into Haelga's bunkhouse, there is a room behind the desk with shackles on the bed, stamina potions on a shelf, leather strips, some mild porno (lusty argonian maid, mentioned already, not very explicit), etc.
I wouldn't even call it a porno. I always figured that the events in Lusty Argonian Maid are just what they say they are- Lifts-Her-Tail is trying to cook, clean, etc., and the sleazy master of the house is making things difficult. The comedy lies in the fact that they're not actually doing anything sexual, but the words/phrases all have very suggestive double meanings.
the Bible's song of solomon has more sexual innuendo than much of skyrim.
Hehe, I was a missionary for a couple of years, and would periodically bug other missionaries by singing the Song of Solomon to the tune of some hymn (usually something grandiose).
I actually recently read these books; Barenziah was quite the homewrecker.
But as has been stated, there aren't many sexual themes. The only other ones I can think of that haven't been mentioned are Astrid implying she was molested by her uncle, and Sapphire telling you she was raped.
And her husband was mostly fine with it, at least in the Nightingale's case. But I did find it hilarious how the Khajiit sex scene was censored. The Queen Mother of Morrowind sleeping with a member of a race that is commonly used as slaves? Nope! Not getting published! Emperor's decree. EDIT: Wait, scratch that. I just read the fully intact Daggerfall version. Holy crap, that's graphic.
But what really blew me away as I finally read all the books in one go last night was her affair with Tiber Septim and its unfortunate result. Really, Talos?
