Rather than continue to hijack another thread, better to make this question a thread of its own.
I noticed when looking at the videos of certain sexy movies (Last Tango in Paris, Kama Sutra: A Love Story, and Romance), that the most explicit sex parts seen in the theatrical releases were deleted from the video.
Now, in the case of Last Tango and Romance, I rented them from Blockbuster and Blockbuster is notorious for its policy requiring that the really explicit sexy parts have to be deleted. Is that true? (Mention of Blockbuster will probably bring on the obligatory scolding not to support that company and to support your local independent video store. Well, I would sure like to, except that there aren’t any independent video stores around here, so it’s Blockbuster or nothing.)
I bought my own copy of Kama Sutra from Amazon, but found that it still had the most explicit sexy parts deleted from what I remembered in the theatrical release.
- Is there a general policy of censoring the really sexy parts for the video release?
- If so, WHY??? If it was good enough to show on the big screen, what’s the problem with leaving it in the video?
