In a very Freudian moment, a woman strokes a snake while a man holds it at the level of his groin.
A man is seen to attract a lot of female attention in a village. He meets with at least one woman in a meadow to make love. No nudity.
In an extended sequence near the film's conclusion, a man seduces a woman in the forest all through the night, she becoming almost feral. He carries her and lays her down in a meadow before laying on top of her. They are seen to undress each other, exposing the man's chest as well as the woman's breast. She also kneels in front of him and crawls worshipfully at his feet. She also whimpers like a dog and licks his face.
