Sex & Nudity

  • The opening title sequence features silhouettes of women who are apparently nude, evidenced by a lack of any irregularities in the smooth body contours that would be caused by clothing, as well as by their visibly erect nipples.
  • A man wakes up in bed, visible from the waist up, wearing nothing. As he gets up, he puts on a robe, and later in the scene, we see his bared legs, implying that he was wearing either shorts or nothing at all in bed.
  • A man reads a Playboy magazine, with the cover to the camera. The magazine shown shows no clear nudity on the cover. We see him turn the magazine sideways and open the centerfold, grinning. Later, we see the man walking away having pulled the centerfold out of the magazine. As he folds it up, we see a glimpse of the model's bared breasts. The magazine issue shown is the February 1969 issue of Playboy, in which the centerfold model is depicted nude down to her upper thighs. The pose hides her pubic area, but in the movie scene, we do not clearly see the woman's bared hip and thigh, even when viewed a frame at a time.
  • A man enters a woman's bedroom at night. The woman is shown in bed, lying chest down, with the sheet covering her from the hips down. She is clearly not wearing any upper garment. In later parts of this scene, when the woman is facing the camera she has the sheet pulled up over her breasts, showing only her bared shoulders. Her nipple is visible for a brief second. We see the man at one point from the knees downward as his kilt falls down around his ankles, In dialogue, the woman implies that he was wearing nothing beneath the kilt. Later, we see the man in bed with the woman, the man bared to the waist at least. Consensual sex is implied.
  • In later scenes, multiple similar liaisons are either initiated or implied in dialogue with other women.
