That's Clive himself doing the dance of the happy pizzle -- look closely at the *face* (if you can!) and you'll see it's him. He has been quite proud to take credit for the scene.
Apart from such prurient interests, this precurser to Hellraiser has many fascinating aspects from the skin-peeling scene and the puzzle to the weird shift of light. But only for the real fan or completist, or folks who like to watch Clive dance.
Of course, this film should not be confused with the short story, "The Forbidden" (although we can see how the concept is one Barker turns to again and again) which provided the basis for "Candyman."
