Below is a note that Penn State would add to our annotation for a title
such as Sweet Swetback's... We rarely add this type of information (7 out
of more than 20,000 titles), but a few years ago we found that faculty
actually appreciate the note in some cases.

"Contains sexually explicit scenes; preview by the instructor is recommended."
