Leopold Bloom's PoV is much easier to understand. He focuses more on mundane matters in his internal thoughts.

I haven't really noticed anything "racy" about Ulysses so far, aside from a couple of subtle insinuations that somebody fooled around.

Past controversies tend to be much ado about nothing by today's standards. When I finally got around to reading Catcher in the Rye, I couldn't find anything serial killerish about it. Maybe it was the first novel to use a young adult voice in a less than Disneyesque setting, but I couldn't find what was so shocking about it to get banned from school libraries.
