More caution, less ‘Lust’

China medics warn against copying sex scenes

Ang Lee‘s wartime spy thriller “Lust, Caution” is prompting cautions against lust — and illegal downloads.

Chinese medics are warning auds against trying some of the inventive sexual positions featured in the uncut version of the movie that is widely available online.

“Most of the sexual maneuvers in ‘Lust, Caution’ are in abnormal body positions,” says Dr. Yu Zao, a deputy director of a women’s hospital in Guangdong province. “Only women with comparatively flexible bodies that have gymnastics or yoga experience are able to perform them. For average people to blindly copy them could lead to unnecessary physical harm.”

The online version of the pic is also causing problems for computers, since the illegal downloads are embedded with viruses.

The Beijing Daily, citing figures from an antivirus company called Rising, says the virus has infected several hundred of websites, online forums and blogs about the film. Once hit by the virus, computer monitors display abnormal blue screens.

Even absent seven minutes of footage that comprises two sex scenes, the pic has been a hit in China, reaping $12 million in its first two weeks. It’s on track to be the biggest Chinese-language movie of the year in mainland China.
