I needed to post that because I also wanted to link to this article about the MPAA's double standard between this flick and others.  Doesn't hamper my excitement for WoWS, but it does irritate me further about the rating system.

Why Did “Wolf of Wall Street” Get a Pass From the MPAA, When Feminist Films Don’t? A Conversation With Jill Soloway.
Worth a read, but the thrust of the article (no pun intended) is that there are a huge number of graphic, misogynistic sequences and managed to get away with an R rating while the less graphic but female-centric Afternoon Delight had to make a bunch of cuts.  I haven't seen either film so I can't compare, but I just hear echoes of This Film Is Not Yet Rated and continue to think how useless the current rating system is.
