200 Motels (1971) is a musical comedy film directed by Frank Zappa and Tony Palmer. The movie follows the misadventures of a fictional rock band, The Mothers of Invention, as they tour the United States. The movie is known for its surreal and often outrageous humor, but it also contains some surprisingly explicit sexual moments.
The most memorable sexual moment in the movie is when the band's lead singer, Jimmy Carl Black, is seduced by a group of female fans. The scene is played for laughs, but it is also surprisingly explicit. Black is seen in bed with the women, and the camera lingers on their bodies as they writhe around in pleasure.
Another memorable sexual moment comes when the band's manager, Ian Underwood, is seduced by a group of female fans. The scene is played for laughs, but it is also surprisingly explicit. Underwood is seen in bed with the women, and the camera lingers on their bodies as they writhe around in pleasure.
The movie also contains a number of other sexual moments, including a scene in which a group of women strip off their clothes and dance around a fire. The scene is played for laughs, but it is also surprisingly explicit.
Overall, 200 Motels is a surreal and often outrageous comedy, but it also contains some surprisingly explicit sexual moments. The movie is a must-see for fans of Frank Zappa and Tony Palmer, and it is sure to leave viewers with a lasting impression.
A woman named Lucy does what are described as "half a dozen provocative squats". She is seen topless while wearing panties. The scene starts in the shower and then she does a dance routing while continuing to be topless. It's more of a humourous scene. It could even be called artistic, but it's certainly not intended to be sexual.
While the nun "tries to OD", Janet and Lucy notice a pervert "beating off" nearby. Lucy considers this "exciting" and grabs one breast while clearly aroused. Lucy is topless at this point while Janet is struggling to get a corset-type piece of clothing on. Only Lucy gets aroused. The scene is mainly played for laughs (like much of the film).
While not visual, there are several lyrical references to sexual acts throughout the film (and soundtrack). IE: Lonesome Cowboy Burt wants a waitress to "sit on his face" and Howard wants to "go to the club or the bar or wherever the pussy is found in the town that your band is booked to play in". Songs like "Penis Dimension" and "What Will This Morning Bring Me This Evening?" are about sex, but normally in a joking way.
When the nun is on her deathbed, Janet is seen topless getting ready to go out into town, applying deodorant and such. Again, it's not sexual but she is completely topless.
