SEX & ZEN II
(Yu Po Tuan Er Zhi Yu Nu Xia Jing)
Certainly, there are plenty of erotic encounters and bare flesh. However, these are no more than the usual bare flesh tumblings that take place in virtually any type of film with a R-rated release and none of these have the imagination of their predecessors set-pieces. Worse most of the comedy seems conducted in a crude and noisy, not to mention unsubtle, tone of farce. The film tends to comes across as being directed by a smutty twelve year old boy the heroines father tries to lecture her while reaching a very loud climax via oral stimulation from one of his wives under the table; people engage in masturbation contests to see how far they can ejaculate and such like. While these may produce a crude laugh, they fall woefully short of their predecessors comic highlights. There is also not much of a plot.
Unfortunately, while Sex & Zen II aspires to be a part of the Hong Kong Wu Xia cycle, it does not appear to have the budget to allow its swordplay to shine. There is one extraordinary image of one of the wives being snatched up and raped by a demonic figure who flies through space on an organic-looking chair, which fails badly through not having the budget to pull it off. The one point that the film does transcend itself is at its climax that features the heroine being raped by the sorcerer villain who is now a woman with a penis which becomes a competition between the two as to who can hold off achieving their orgasm the last and in so doing devour the others life essence.
There were two further Sex & Zen sequels with the subsequent non-fantastical Sex and Zen III (1998) and the fantastical Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy (2011).
