- Sex & Nudity Reason
- In a brief scene, during a Voodoo-themed musical entertainment act, we see a strange man (impersonating Baron Samedi) dance around a stage in a white loincloth, white trench coat, and white top hat. We can see his entire legs and upper body. He dances towards a woman in a dark bikini who has been roped to two poles. He then wraps his left arm around her lower back and begins to quiver his jowls while making an odd sound. Some might see this as sexual, others as a hilarious moment.
The opening title sequence begins with a woman's body dramatically side-lit, showing that she is wearing nothing but some necklaces. The strong lighting leaves most of her body in shadow, but we see part of her areola as well as her bared side from shoulder down to upper thigh. Later in the sequence, another apparently-nude woman is shown from the front; the only covering shown is some body paint. Posing and camera work obscure most of her body; no areola, nipple, or pubic area is shown.
A man and a woman are in bed together, the man's arm around the woman. The top sheet covers the woman's chest, leaving the man's chest and the woman's shoulders visible. No clothing is visible. The woman asks the man for "one more time," implying sex.
A woman sneaks out of a man's bedroom wearing only panties, with the man's pajama top pressed to her chest to hide her breasts. As she sneaks away, we see her bared back.
A man unzips a woman's dress, showing a bit of her bared back and the top of her panties.
In two scenes, a man dances in a scanty costume that covers little more than his pubic area. His bare chest, back and legs are visible several times. A few times in these scenes, we briefly see his buttocks.
Several scenes involve a painted depiction of a nude man and woman embracing as lovers, with the woman's bared breast showing from the side. Pubic areas are hidden by posing and the couples' buttocks are hidden by an artistic drape.
A man tries to talk a woman into bed with him. She refuses, but after later events in the scene, she reluctantly agrees to sleep with him. Nothing overt is shown beyond this, but the morning-after scene suggests that they had sex.
A man and a woman are lying on a blanket in the jungle kissing, the man shirtless and the woman wearing the man's sleeveless undershirt. Dialogue suggests that they had sex before the scene began. The woman later runs off, apparently wearing nothing but the undershirt and possibly some brief panties. The undershirt falls to the woman's upper thighs, leaving her arms and legs fully bared.
Photographs of nude women (apparently cut from magazines) are pasted up near a man's bed. Posing and cropping show bared breasts, hips, and thighs briefly.
A man and a woman wake up together in bed. The man is shirtless and the woman wears a camisole. They speak of having had sex. Later in the scene, the woman asks the man to have sex with her again in veiled language. The man agrees using an innuendo.
Dialogue reveals one of the sex scenes detailed above to involve a loss of virginity. The possibility of this makes another man very angry; his angry speeches contain multiple veiled references to sex.
