* TheJailBaitWait: Discussed as Larry fears that Althea is too young to be a stripper.
* KangarooCourt: In Larry's first trial, evidence in favor of Flint is denied, specifically magazines with similar content as ''Hustler''. The judge also sends him to ''[[DisproportionateRetribution 25 years]]'' and denies bail. Subverted in Larry's later trials, when the judges are clearly more frustrated by Larry's appalling behavior. But this behavior is due to Flynt feeling mistreated.

* TheJailBaitWait: Discussed as when Larry fears first meets Althea, as he can tell that Althea she is too young "not legal" when she auditions for his strip club. She admits she's but a centimeter from legal age - as in, the ''very next day'' was her 16th birthday(the age of consent in Ohio), and she auditioned while she still was underage just to be a stripper.
