Sex & Nudity

Sex & Nudity - 6

A woman asks a man if he would enjoy a roll in the hay.

The monster unzips his pants in front of a woman (no nudity is visible), she makes a crude remark about his endowment, he lies on top of her and we see him moving as he groans and she moans and begins to sing (intercourse is implied). She begs him not to force sex on her, as she is an engaged woman. He proceeds to force himself upon her anyway. The woman sings joyously, which implies she enjoys it.

A few minutes later the movie cuts back to the Monster and woman, as the woman begs him to have sex with her again.
