No, one would be talking about having sex, the other would be having said sex. Clerks would be an example of a movie that has sexual dialogue without any onscreen sex.

Sexual content including dialogue

I was thinking that it meant there were sex scenes, but instead of just having music played over the action, the people were talking.

And it wouldn't have to be dirty talking, it could just be chit-chat... y'know, movies, current events, regular stuff.

This confuses me much like the "graphic creature scenes" warning on "The Cave" previews.

So will "Aliens" have to be re-rated to include "Graphic Alien Scenes"?


"Sexual content including dialog"

I have to agree with Count....doesn't that mean people are talking during sex?

Is you don't understand the difference between dialogue and sex, you must have some very interesting first dates.

Buddy: "Did you have sex?"
You: "Oh yeah, several times. Right when I picked her up, in the restaurant, etc."
Buddy: "What?"
You: "Yeah, I even met her dad. Hell of a guy. I had sex with him too!"

Well wouldnt' "talking" about sex fall under "sexual content"?

Isnt this "with dialog" a bit redundant?


I've not seen "Sin City" does anyone actually have sex in the movie?

there is one brief sex scene in sin city.

Here's another thing, with the "sexual content" line, there is a "some sexaul content" notice in kill bill vol1, (i'm puting tags mainly due to the content, not for spoiler material.)
Spoiler:
Buck: Price is $75 a fuck, my friend. You getting your freak on, or what?
Trucker: Oh yeah, boy.
[gives Buck the money]
Buck: Now here are the rules. Rule Number One: no punching her. The nurse comes in tomorrow and she got a shiner or less some teeth, jig's up. So, no knuckle sandwiches under no circumstances. And by the way, this little ****'s a spitter. It's a motor-reflex thing. But spit or not, no punching. Now, are we absolutely, positively clear on Rule Number One?
Trucker: Yeah.
Buck: Good. Now, Rule Number Two: no monkey bites, and no hickeys. In fact, no leaving no marks of any kind on her. After that, it's all good, buddy. Now, her plumbing down there don't work no more, so feel free to come in her all you want. Keep the noise down, try not to make a mess. I'll be back in twenty.
[Buck starts to leave, but snaps his fingers and turns back]
Buck: Oh, shit! By the way, not every time but sometimes this chick's cooch will get drier than a bucket of sand. If she's dry, just lube up with this,
[tosses him a jar of Vaseline]
Buck: and you'll be good to go. Bon Appetite, good buddy.
Isn't this also dialogue?

Actually, sexual content would cover more than just sex. The hooker's outfits, the Yellow Bastard's history of molestation and rape and other things would fall under sexual content. Plus, there is a sex scene.

So maybe "Sexual Content" covers visual, "with dialogue" covers audio.

No. It says "including dialogue." It's not redundant to list the specific items included in a general term. For example, if I tell you that I had Italian food last night, including penne alla vodka, I'm not being redundant. Specifying that the Italian food I ate included the penne dish just makes it more specific. Same with "sexual content including dialogue"; the "including" portion just makes the general "content" term more specific.

Yes, but the point here is to state clearly the most "adult" aspects of the film. Who's going to say "I'm down with my kids seeing sexual content except when there's dialogue involved"?

Some people are fine with seeing sex on screen, but get more upset with things like the "37 dicks" conversation in Clerks.

What is the point of being specific about it being "dialog"?

If people are screwing or talking about screwing its still content for adults.

I don't believe that dialogue is content, and that's why I'm taking a Cub Scout troop to a matinee of THE ARISTOCRATS.
