Films exploring taboo subjects have existed for nearly as long as the genre of film has existed. The former is remarkable for also containing the first strip tease to be put to film, a feature that was highly risque at the time. It was also fabulously popular. So it is unsurprising that other filmmakers would want to follow in its wake and push the boundary of what is culturally acceptable. As a result, explicit visual depictions of sexuality and violence have become commonplace over the decades—though precisely what constitutes an explicit depiction will vary depending on time and place. A film with explicit homosexual relationships will struggle to find release in countries like Kenya, whereas one depicting drug use might have a challenge in South Korea or Singapore.
