Shorts by eight directors examine the boundary between Eros and porn. A feral man masturbates with the aid of a whirling crankshaft; a sunbathing woman phones a doctor for a playful house call; a man with a quartz penis goes through lovemaking, castration, cannibalism, and restoration; a mouth and tongue, close up, lick viscous liquids of different colors and consistency; we watch a grainy film of a lesbian threesome, their eyes and genitalia crudely scratched out; a director interviews ten men, choosing one who picks among six actresses for a porn shoot; ink wash drawings become animated scenes of copulation; last, while an infant cries, a strobe illuminates adults at play.

Fabulously, Tantalisingly Exciting.

Despite initial fears of an R18 certificate (preventing the film from being shown publicly and therefore ruling out its initial premiere at London's Tate Modern) the film was passed completely uncut and granted an 18 certificate by the BBFC. The BBFC president Sir Quentin Thomas said that the film was "so explicit that it would normally attract an R18 rating" but he judged that "it was a work of art not intended to arouse". All UK DVD releases carry a warning which states that the film 'contains strong, real sex'. See more
