SEX/NUDITY 5 - Please note that almost from the very first frame of the movie there is a constant sexual tension. A man and woman kiss passionately a few times. A woman masquerading as a man seduces, with flowery, passionate speech, a woman and two men. A woman and a woman dressed like a man kiss a few times; the woman caresses the face of the woman dressed like a man, holds her hands, and kisses her on the back of the head. A man and woman kiss and hold each other, a man kisses a woman's chest and neck, a man and woman nearly kiss, and a man kisses a woman's hand a few times. A man caresses a woman's calf, and a woman puts a man's hand on her clothed breast. A man holds a woman from the back in order to teach her how to shoot a bow, and she swoons. A woman begins unbuttoning her shirt in front of a man while trying to seduce him. A man comes out of water and we see his bare buttocks (there are a couple of other shots of his buttocks from different angles), and we see his bare chest when he wraps himself in a towel. We see a painting of a woman lying on her stomach with her bare buttocks exposed. Two women disrobe in a moving carriage (we see their bare thighs, backs, and shoulders). Women are shown in period costumes that include cleavage-revealing
dresses. A man grabs a woman's buttock and crotch as he helps her down from a wall. There are discussions about being a lover. We see bare buttocks and breasts on statues.
