We’re used to saying practically anything on our movie and TV screens these days. But so much of what we see today has, not so very long ago, been classified as pornography. It was only in 1960 that the first official publication of the printed version of Lady Chatterley’s Lover went on trial in the UK for flouting the obscenity laws. Through the decades, various movies have gone out on a limb to break sexual taboos. Here are some of them:
1. Ecstasy (1933)
This Czech film starring Hedy Lamarr, who was only 18 when she appeared, has two sex scenes involving nudity. In one scene, she has sex with a man, and it caused a sensation because it was the first depiction of sex in a mainstream flick. It is still considered the cinema's first sex scene.
