Hardcore scenes in mainstream movies

Author: Ed Serrano

WHEN the Japanese film "In the Realm of Senses" was shown at the Manila Film Festival in 1976, the local moviegoers were aghast to see mainstream actress Eiko Matsuda performing oral sex and other hardcore scenes in the movie.

During those days "pene" scenes being "inserted" in local films all but pushed ticket sales up, particularly on second run theaters in the provinces. Many thought that little-by-little, local censorship would ease up and pretty soon, there may even be movie houses put up exclusively for adult male audiences. It did not happen. The censorship laws were strictly enforced. And in came the usual action, drama and comedy flicks, but the local audience began to dwindle.

These days, as if being aided by film-video pirates. local films finally lost touch with the moviegoers. Very few local movies hit the theaters and the producers are not even sure if they can get an ROI (return on investment) on the millions they gamble on their films.

Today, the likes of that 1976 flick are still seen in Europe and the US. Just like in the movie The Brown Bunny, Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny, a Hollywood actress who co-starred with award-winning actress Hillary Swank in the movie Boys Don't Cry is seen performing oral sex with her leading man Vincent DeGallo. In fact, he came in her mouth and she swallowed them all.

Mainstream actress Margot Stiley not only performed fellatio in 9 Songs, but erotic penetration scenes, as well. The same happened with Keri Fox in Intimacy, Kim Kardaishan, Mimi MacPherson, Yuliya Mayarchuk , a Russian star, French actress Caroline Ducey, and a lot more.

Elizabeta Cavaloti, a highly respected European stage actress can be seen in her first and only mainstream dramatic movie that featured her as a cancer-stricken prostitute in Guardami. She did oral sex and actual penetration in the movie, and quickly returned to the stage afterwards

Did you know that half-Pinay Hollywood actress Tiffany Limos performed uncensored hardcore scenes with two young American men in the movie Ken Park?

Maybe, just maybe, if the censors will be not be too "brutal" in following religious fanaticisms, even only the male audience can boost up our dying movie industry.
