Vertigo (Hickcock) had sexual content.
North by Northwest gets a might racy.
Psycho talks about incest, and sexual lust.
Marnie has a rape scene, and quite a bit more.
Frenzy has a lot of sex and violence interwined.
Hitch was a bit of a dirty old man. He just wrapped a good film around the dirty bits.

(Replies should be as pedantic as possible. I love that so much.)
Yes, but he used oblique references - nothing explicit.
Even the shower scene in 'Psycho' was out of focus, and left mostly to the imagination.
Adults seeing 'Marnie' understood that a rape had occurred, but again - nothing explicit was seen...
You sound as if you are defending Hollywood's slide into the gutter. Hollywood should respect audiences, as the early writers and directors had. They are not doing that today.
One can not even watch tv programs or commercials today, without having his values insulted.
