Pressure Point (1962)
The 1962 movie Pressure Point is a psychological drama that explores the complex relationship between a black prisoner and his white psychiatrist. The movie is known for its controversial and provocative themes, including sexual moments.
The movie follows Bobby, a young black man who is imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. He is assigned to a white psychiatrist, Dr. Anderson, who is tasked with evaluating Bobby's mental state. As the two men get to know each other, a sexual tension begins to build between them.
The sexual moments in Pressure Point are subtle but powerful. In one scene, Bobby and Dr. Anderson are alone in a room and Bobby begins to unbutton his shirt. Dr. Anderson looks away, clearly uncomfortable with the situation. This moment is a powerful reminder of the power dynamics between the two men, and the way in which Bobby's race and status as a prisoner affects their relationship.
In another scene, Bobby and Dr. Anderson are talking in a park and Bobby begins to kiss Dr. Anderson's hand. This moment is both tender and provocative, as it suggests a desire for intimacy between the two men that cannot be fulfilled due to their respective positions in society.

In the psychiatrist's office there's a painting of two women on the wall. One of the them is topless.
At a bar a bunch of men get rowdy and graffiti a bunch of tick-tac-toe's on the wall, and when they subsequently run out of space, all but two leave the bar. The last two order the bartender to lay on the floor as they play tick-tac-toe on the bartender's wife's face and back using her lipstick. The humiliation and the partial disrobing of the woman heavily emits a strong disturbing sexual atmosphere akin to a rape.
A younger child may not pick up on it, there is a slightly disturbing scene where the boy's mother stages a scene with her son in which she gets him to rub her legs, repeating, "you're the only one."
In a montage we see a woman for a split second wearing a dress revealing minor cleavage.
The patient's drunken father brings home another woman and in front of his wife starts to kiss her - alluding to more sexual activity as he takes her downstairs wrapped in a sheet.
