SEX/NUDITY 6 - A young man and a young woman sit on a bed, they kiss, she pushes him back and kisses him, she removes a ring from his finger using her mouth and reveals that she has changed it into a tongue piercing; they continue to kiss, he stops her, she climbs out of bed and removes her nightgown (she is wearing a black bra and panties, and both have flashing lights strategically placed over her nipples and pubic area) and she says, "I want to go all the way."
 A young man removes his shirt (his chest, abdomen and hips are visible) in front of a crowd of people in a town square; he removes his pants (his crotch is blocked by the crowd and then a large disco ball when the camera moves in closer) and turns to show his back and we see his bare buttocks and buttock cleavage when he bends over. Four men wearing cutoff jeans and no shirts dance together and make suggestive moves toward each other. A woman wears a deep-cut and short top that reveals cleavage and bare abdomen.

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.
