SEX/NUDITY 7 - Sexual innuendo. Lots of passionate kissing, mostly between
women. A man and woman appear to have sex with lots movement and sound; the woman remains
clothed and we only see the man's bare chest. A woman fondles another woman's
clothed breasts, then opens her shirt and reveals her bra; the woman then unbuttons the
other's pants (we see a bit of her underwear) and begins kissing her stomach. In two
scenes, we see a woman's bare breast as another woman kisses it. A naked woman is
covered with a sheet (but we see her bare back) and another woman, shirtless but covered,
lies on top of her; we later see photographs of this scene. A woman fondles another
woman's breasts underneath her shirt; we also see photographs of this scene. We see a
small part of a woman's bare buttocks as she's lying on her stomach in a
bathtub, and also the side of a woman's bare buttocks and thigh while she's
sitting on a toilet. Many women wear cleavage-revealing tops, and several scenes show
scantily clad women.
