THE BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) has requested that some cuts be made to the world’s first 3D erotic film – 3D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy.

UK distributor Metrodome were required to make two minutes worth of cuts to scenes of non consensual and violent sex.

But the strong sex scenes have been passed uncut at ‘18’.

3D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy has shattered box office records across the Asia Pacific region, including Hong Kong and Singapore.

It has grossed over $1m on six screens in Australia.

The film is due to open in the UK on September 2 in an exclusive deal with Odeon Cinemas.

3D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is banned in mainline China, while in the US it has earnt an NC-17 rating from the MPAA, which means that nobody under the age of 18 will be permitted to see the film.

An adaptation of the classic novel The Carnal Prayer Mat, the film follows a young Ming Dynasty scholar named Wei Yangsheng on an eye-opening journey of sexual discovery.

Directed by Christopher Suen and produced by Stephen Shiu, the executive producer of its predecessor film Sex and Zen, the film is being marketed as “the world’s first 3D erotic film”.
