Alternate Versions

For the 2008 UK Optimum release (as "Black Emanuelle En Orient") cuts of 4 mins 26 secs were made. These were to remove footage of a cockfight, a mongoose fighting a snake, and a pleasure rape scene. In addition to avoid an R18 certificate (which only permits licensed sex shops to stock the film) the distributors removed hardcore shots featuring a vaginal penetration with a ping-pong ball.

Emanuelle, this time in Bangkok
13 December 2007 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

I often enjoy a spot of hardcore porn, and in spite of that and the fact that these films star the beautiful Laura Gemser; I have to say that I'm not much of a fan of Emanuelle films. Emanuelle flicks tend to be very similar to one another, and this is yet another film with only a theme to differentiate it from the rest of the series. The theme this time is that Emanuelle has found herself in Bangkok (seems like a suitable place...) for whatever reason, and naturally it's an excuse for her to engage in lots of sex with men, women and couples. The film is directed by Joe D'Amato, so as you might expect; sleaze comes as standard, and the film isn't lacking in that department. The sex scenes aren't particularly bad, but after seeing a fair amount of this stuff; I can't say that this film features anything that most of the others don't. The plot is practically non-existent as you would expect, and the sex scenes really aren't interesting enough to carry the whole film. There's not really a great deal that can be said about this one; it's not the worst Emanuelle film or the best, it's just an average one and I can't really recommend seeing it.
