The Skinny: Hey kids: DON'T WATCH THIS MOVIE. However, consenting adults could get a kick out of this outrageous Category III comedy that is consistently funny instead of sick or titillating. A Hong Kong Cinema cult classic. Find out why.
 
Review
by Kozo:

Hong Kong Cinema's seminal screwfest is a campy, over-the-top Category III film about a monk-to-be (Lawrence Ng) and his prosthetic horse penis. That's right: he has his own member lopped off and replaced with a horse's, all in the name of increased prowess. Despite his marriage to the top-heavy Amy Yip, Ng decides to take his big guy and hit the road and experience life as a well-hung fellow. Kent Cheng is the quack who operates on his member and Tsui Kam-Kong is a cuckolded husband who gains revenge by going after Yip.

Based on a seventeenth century novel entitled "The Carnal Prayer", Sex and Zen has attained cult status thanks to its over-the-top raunchiness and bizarre sensibilities. The absurd presentation is laudable because it's just so damn strange and works hard to be more than typical Category III exploitation fodder. At times the sex is played for laughs rather than titillation, and the actors are so gleeful in their performances that they become engaging. This movie is ABSOLUTELY NOT for the kids, but it's great if you’re drunk or want to embarrass your guests. (Kozo 1995/1999)
