Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970)
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) is a cult classic film directed by Russ Meyer. It is a satirical take on the 1960s Hollywood scene, and it features a lot of sexual moments.
The movie follows the story of three young women who move to Los Angeles to pursue their dreams of becoming rock stars. Along the way, they encounter a lot of sexual situations. One of the most memorable scenes is when the girls visit a nightclub and are propositioned by a group of men. They are then taken to a back room and offered drugs and sex. This scene is a great example of how the movie uses sex to explore the themes of power and control.
The movie also features a lot of nudity and sexualized imagery. There are several scenes where the women are seen in lingerie or partially nude. These scenes are used to show the power dynamics between the characters and how they use their sexuality to manipulate each other.

Women's naked breasts are seen often but seldom for more than a second at a time.
Two women are shown making love, one strokes the other's naked buttocks and their breasts are shown pressed together.
A woman is seen for about a quarter of a second running, in a prolonged sequence of many flashing images that includes other naked breasts, her breasts and buttocks visible through a see-through black negligee.
There is a strong sexual tone throughout the film; women are dressed very sexy, in ways that accentuate their bodies, especially their breasts. A nude woman dances openly among clothed people at a party. Several couples make love throughout the film, including one lesbian couple who have a love scene together as well as a bisexual male character sexually touching a man in bed (under the covers, hence nothing is actually shown, only suggested). Although the film is rated X (NC-17 today), there is no type of sex in the movie that one would normally associate with an X-rated film (Only breasts are shown and there is no other type of frontal nudity). One of the characters who was previously thought to be male in the film is revealed to have female breasts. A woman wakes up to accuse a man of raping her while she was unconscious.
