SEX AND ZEN: Bring it on. [NSFW]

August 15, 2011

Earlier this year, SEX AND ZEN 3D: EXTREME ECSTASY was released in Hong Kong with an opening day take that beat out AVATAR. Chinese nationals visited the island in droves to see The World’s First 3D Erotic Film. Australia and New Zealand next experienced the film’s glossy production, revolutionary 3D effects, and yes: erotica, Thanks to our friends at China Lion Entertainment, who import first run Asian titles for the SpotlightAsia! program at our affiliated theaters in Hawaii, SEX AND ZEN is coming to America!

It’s loosely based on a sort of “Chinese Kama Sutra” -  The Carnal Prayer Mat – which contains such wisdom as:

For instance, if you have an ugly wife who does not greatly excite you during intercourse, and you get your pleasure by imagining her as the pretty girl you saw that day, how do you know that at that very moment your wife isnâ??t just as put off by your ugliness and isnâ??t getting her pleasure by imagining you as that handsome young fellow she saw the same day? This sort of thing is universal, of course, but although no oneâ??s chastity has been compromised, damage has been done to even the stoutest heart and, in its way, that damage is also retribution for lechery.

Sage advice for the fifteenth century male.

From what we gather, SEX AND ZEN 3D: EXTREME ECSTASY is going to be a lot more fun than its literary counterpart. We’re looking forward to over the top costumes, lush ancient temples, and a LOT of camp. Bring it on!

Opening at the Angelika Dallas (9/9), and the Village East Cinema and East 86th Street in NYC (both 8/19).
