Episode 5 - S1-E5

Other mistake: When Hannah/Belle is talking to her "agent" you can see the escort website and Belle's "Enjoy List", a list of acts she is willing to perform, on the agent's computer, however some of the items on that list are mistakes. 1) She has (pardon the language) "cum in mouth" marked with an x for no; but has snowballing marked with a check for yes (you can only see half of it but it is a checkmark not an X). This is a contradiction because snowballing involves "cum in mouth". 2) She has a no marked for "moresomes" yet she does "moresome" as evidenced by the foursome in episode 7. 3) Belle is so concerned over someone discovering her profession that she worries in the first episode the escort website's pictures aren't pixellated enough to conceal her identity; yet she has both being photographed and being filmed marked as yes.
