 A man invites a woman to join him in an adult gift store, they kiss, they flick their tongues at each other, and they remove their clothing (the man wears a thong and his bare chest and buttocks are visible while the woman wears low-cut lingerie that reveals cleavage and bare shoulders); the two use several sex aids during this extended scene, with the man mounting a sex doll while kissing it and thrusting on it, the woman licking a phallus while the man holds it and waves it around, the woman inserting a phallus into the man from behind, and the woman inserting beads into the man from behind.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
