Sex and Zen

One of the most notorious Hong Kong films ever has been remastered and is back on DVD, ready for a whole new generation of Hong Kong Cinema fans!

Sex and Zen is, simply put, one of the most unbelievable movies ever put to film. Lawrence Ng stars as a randy scholar who challenges tradition by attempting enlightenment via the unscrupulous ravishing of as many women as is humanly possible. This desire occurs despite being married to his delectable wife, played by famously top-heavy Hong Kong Cinema starlet Amy Yip. But the quest to become the ultimate player comes with necessary enhancements, namely a horse's member in place of the scholar's, uh, laughably small endowment. Thanks to a quack doctor, the scholar gets the necessary surgical help to experience life as a well-hung guy. But does such carnal pleasure come with a price?

Based on a seventeenth century novel titled "The Carnal Prayer", this raunchy, raucous romp is the perfect midnight film for consenting adults looking for something very, very off the wall. Sex is played for laughs as much as it is for titillation, resulting in many unbelievably entertaining sex scenes. Sex and Zen has eye candy to spare, thanks to appearances by Isabella Chow, Rena Murakami, and of course fan-favorite Amy Yip. The film also features appearances by Category III staple Elvis Tsui, Shaw brothers veteran Lo Lieh, and Kent Cheng as the doctor skilled in horse-to-human organ transplant. It may not be family-friendly or even a comfortable conversation topic, but Sex and Zen can easily be called a cult classic.
