Reuters reported this week that Chinese doctors have warned audiences of Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution (Se jie) not to try the film’s sex scenes at home.
“Only women with comparatively flexible bodies that have gymnastics or yoga experience are able to perform them. For average people to blindly copy them could lead to unnecessary physical harm,” said Yu (Zao, deputy director at a women’s hospital in southern Guangdong province).
Most of said scenes, however, ending up on the cutting room floor in mainland China, and the uncut version is only available for viewing in Hong Kong. Which prompted a billion people to cross into Hong Kong in the last two weeks since the movie opened.*
*The actual numbers have not been officially confirmed.
