Sex & Nudity

  • There is a lengthy sex scene between John and Selima in which they kiss and embrace, he pulls down her dress and begins to kiss and caress her breasts (which are fully seen). Things move to the bedroom and we see thrusting and then John starts to preform oral sex on Selima (we see her breasts again here) and then she straddles him and the scene ends.
  • Cecil walks up to John and pulls her dress down revealing her bare breasts for about 2 seconds.
  • Jonh and Cecil are shown pre-coital. Nothing explicit.
  • A woman is called some sexual slangs as she has a baby that is not her husband's.
