A group of people come together and talk about transgressive sexual subjects. This is inter-cut with often graphic sex scenes involving rape, torture, bestiality, lesbianism, masturbation and other subjects you may or may not be able to think of.

“Oscenita” is perhaps the most scandalous Renato Polselli’s film. Banned for few years in Italy due to its transgressive sexual content and released in theaters in 1979 this piece of sleaze offers several sexually explicit scenes including masturbation with a candle, whipping, rape and sexual intercourse with a donkey.

This movie was originally made in 1973, but banned outright by the Italian censors. The original version conveys the message of “obscenity” in different ages and cultural or sub-cultural contexts, coming to the point to deny its existence. This version has been lost and will probably never be released.

In 1979 Polselli re-dubbed the soundtrack to give the censors the idea the report was trying to prove the masculine guilt, in almost all the situations the sexual degeneration of women, therefore the victim of real historical sexual violence. This pseudo-feminist version is an over-the-top film of sexual excess that leads to the charge of the cinema industry on the sexual abuse of woman for mere commercial intents.
