Plot: In this first part of the naughty trilogy, Amy yip flaunts her nubile charms in the face of an easily distracted scholar (Lawrence Ng), which leads to their marriage and most unique wedding night. Looking to overcome feelings of inadequacy, our scholar seeks outside help in the way of a highly unorthodox animal organ transplant. His new satisfaction begins a downward spiral, and the realization of a very hard-learned lesson.


One of the classiest soft-core sex comedies around, Sex and Zen is sleazy in the funniest, quirkiest ways. Lawrence Ng signed up for the role of his life as a scholar who, longing for a life of seductive abandon, has his member transplanted with that of a horse, initiating a series of hilarious “conquests” by the nebbish scholar. Elvis Tsui also got a lot of parts after playing the well-endowed silkmaker who becomes cuckolded by the scholar, and Amy Yip, already a dubious sort of movie star in her own right, did one of two truly nude scenes in her career.

This is trash, no question there. But as trash goes, it’s very sophisticated, fun trash, with a lot of campy segments with silly special effects.
