* ContemplativeBoss: Subverted by Brandon and one of his prostitutes having sex in this position.



** HollywoodPersonalityDisorders: Sissy has many traits that hint she may have borderline personality disorder, such as impulsiveness, clinginess, anger issues and self-harm. As well, she alternates between feeling affection for and conflicting with her brother. Most of these apply to him too, though, as well as hypersexuality (obviously).
