Emmanuelle VI had hardcore scenes shot, but they were never used. These explicit scenes, which did not involve the main actors, were included in some television versions and turned up as extras on certain European DVD editions.
This was the first 'Emmanuelle' movie in the official series where Sylvia Kristel was not the main actress playing Emmanuelle. Kristel appears, but mostly in the first part of the movie, before a surgical operation transforms her Emmanuelle character in to a new Emmanuelle played by Mia Nygren.
This is the only 1980s 'Emmanuelle' film in the official 'Emmanuelle' series to feature Sylvia Kristel as well as see her playing Emmanuelle. Kristel does not appear in Emmanuelle V (1987) nor Emmanuelle 6 (1988).
