No sex or nudity in this movie.
Anita is seen putting on pantyhose during the 'Quintet' number, while in a bra and slip.
A few remarks referring to prostitutes, cross dressers. Very subtle.
At the gym dance, some girls are wearing tight dresses, which reveal breast outlines, and slim visibility of nipples.
Maria asks Anita to lower a dress's neck by one inch, and Anita replies "Too much." This implies cleavage.
The Jets grab Anita and force Baby John onto her, but Doc stops them before anything can happen. Implies rape.
Tony is seen sleeping in bed with Maria (he is shirtless, she is in a nightgown), but it's vaguely implied that they had sex.
Some kissing and making out throughout the film.
Some sexual dancing, lifting skirts, subtle thrusting etc.
