SEX/NUDITY 10 - A woman discovers a minotaur raping a man (the minotaur is behind the man, thrusting), she shouts and the minotaur turns around and we see its fully erect penis; a man approaches the minotaur and stabs it, it falls to the ground (the erection is still visible) and moments later we see the man with the disembodied genitals of the minotaur on a rope around his neck. A man is wearing the severed genitals of a minotaur around his neck as a necklace, and the genitals hit his mouth when he tries to take off the necklace; he offers the genitals to a woman that turns him down, and he then hands the genitals to another man, who places them on the man's shoulder. We see the severed genitals of a minotaur hanging around a man's neck for approximately 20 minutes in various situations and settings, including dangling next to a woman's face as she is strapped to a bed (she grabs the genitals in a suggestive fashion and the man pulls them out of her hands). A man draws a crude cartoon of a man and a woman having sex: we see a man's massive genitals and the woman's bare breasts.
 Several topless women, their bare breasts visible, surround a man wearing a diaper (his bare chest is also visible). We see several topless women with their bare breasts lightly covered with mud but still visible. Several topless women, a small amount of mud seen on their breasts, watch several men fight; they moan suggestively as a man takes off his shirt (we see his bare chest) and throws it at the women. We see an animated version of two topless women and their bare breasts visible. A man's bare chest and back are visible on multiple occasions as he goes without a shirt. A man is seen taking off his shirt. Throughout the movie we see women wearing cleavage exposing tops and dresses. A woman's cleavage is visible as she lays on a bed on two occasions.
 A man is bitten in the thigh by a venomous monster, he shouts at two men to suck out the venom, one of the men makes a sexual joke and then forces the other man's head near the man's crotch area; we see his head going up and down (appearing as though the man is performing oral sex on the other man), and he is then instructed to spit out the venom (we see him spit out a milky substance).
 A man is seen on top of a woman tied to a bed: he thrusts twice and it is implied they are engaged in sex, and several men and a woman enter the room and the man leaps off the woman (she's wearing a tight, cleavage exposing corset and the man's shirt is long enough to cover his genitals).
 We see a man in bed, he rubs oil on his hands and it is implied that he is about to masturbate (we see his hands move under a sheet); another man enters the room and teases him about masturbating and when a woman enters the room the man implies that he was about to masturbate, telling her that he was about to think about her. A woman wearing a bikini-like outfit (her bare torso is visible) approaches several men, she takes off the bottoms as the men watch (we see her bare buttocks) and one of the men makes a crude remark about sexually relieving himself on her bare breasts. We see a man having his clothing ripped off, revealing his bare chest and genital area, which is completely smooth -- several men stare at his crotch and make remarks about the man not having genitalia and when he turns we see his bare buttocks. A man wears tights and a large codpiece, he stands behind another man and instructs him how to swing a sword; it appears suggestive as we see the man's behind. A man watches as a woman takes off her clothing; we see her wearing a bikini-style top and thong-style underwear, her buttocks and bare torso are visible, the man explains to another man that he is watching a woman bathe, and both men then look at the woman's bare back and buttocks.
 A male squid-man puppet asks a man to kiss him, the man kisses him passionately, he then instructs another man to kiss the creature, and the man gives him a brief kiss on the lips. A man and a woman kiss passionately on multiple occasions. A woman kisses a man on the cheek, and the man sticks out his tongue and attempts to lick the woman's lips. A man licks a woman's face, and the woman acts disgusted. A man makes a crude remark to his brother about having to "touch" a male squid-man creature, implying sexual release; the man touches the creature's crotch area (no nudity is visible), the creature makes suggestive moaning noises and we then see the man wanting to wipe off his hands.
 Throughout the movie there are countless references to rape, including a man telling a woman he is going to have forcible sex with her on over ten occasions, a man telling a woman that she will have his child on multiple occasions, two men discussing how another man is intending to rape a woman, a man tells another man that he is going to "enter" a woman and that she has been "pre-moisted" by three elderly women (he does not explain what he means), and a man asks another man a series of questions concerning another man having forcible sex with the man's wife. A man makes a series of crude gestures that imply that a man is forcing another man to perform oral sex on him; we see a man watching and laughing.
 A man and woman kiss passionately, the woman offers to have sex with the man, she lifts her skirt and we see a metal bikini-style bottom with a lock, the woman explains that it is a chastity belt and that she needs to find a key from another woman in order to have sex. A man, using suggestive language, asks a woman to have sex with him but she ignores his advances. A man asks a woman if she will bathe with him and she declines. In front of a crowd of people, a man accuses another man of having sex with his wife, and the man says it was just "heavy petting" with "brief penetration." On multiple occasions two men discuss sex, including one man telling the other that it is customary for a man to "lay with" multiple women, and a man tells another man that he is jealous of the man's sexual history. A male squid-man creature tells two men that a man will force a woman to have sex with him to produce a dragon and one of the men remarks, "That's gross." Two men, using crude language, describe various sexual positions a man may take with a woman. A man tells another man not to stand near a virgin woman, and the man makes a crude remark about having sex with her. A man and woman have a conversation with sexual innuendo as he holds her arms behind her back, she makes a crude remark that a sword is a man's penis and he says he will "gladly penetrate" her. A woman teases a man about the appearance and use of his genitals (we see no nudity), he then makes a crude remark about masturbating to prepare for having sex with her and he makes a crude remark about the woman's genitals being similar to his hand. A man asks another man if he thinks a man and a woman will have sex, and the man says no. A man tells a woman about a series of crude sexual behaviors, including that a man organizes orgies, sleeps with multiple women, has fungus on his genitalia, and allows men to sexually relieve themselves on him. A male squid-man creature implies that he and a man had a sexual relationship, saying they would kiss, jump on the bed topless, and "other playful secrets." A man tells another man that he believes his brother was molested by a male squid-man creature. A man makes a crude joke about being forced to masturbate in front of a Pegasus. A man jokes to several men that another man's haircut makes him look like male genitalia. Two men make crude gestures with their hands, implying sexual release over the ashes of a man's body.

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.
