Swedish cinema historically has a more liberal stance towards sex than their North American counterparts. These early Swedish summer films blended arthouse with grindhouse in the Scandinavian countryside, and they were able to appeal both to highbrow and lowbrow audiences as a result. This reputation was embraced in Swedish cinema for decades, and these ten films exemplify that. Set during World War II, the film tells the story of a love affair between Stig, a fifteen-year-old boy on the verge on manhood, and Viola, his schoolteacher. Viola feels trapped in a troubled marriage to Kjell, who struggles with depression and alcoholism. Things are further complicated when Stig and Kjell become friends. The camera does an excellent job of building tension, and of balancing a feeling of intimacy with one of intrigue. Swedish erotic cinema has not been just restricted to the arthouse, however. In the s in particular, comedic sex romps became increasingly common.

All Things Fair
Nudity in film is the presentation in a film of at least one person who is nude , partially nude or wearing less clothing than contemporary norms in some societies consider " modest ". Since the development of the medium, inclusion in films of any form of sexuality has been controversial, and in the case of most nude scenes has had to be justified as being part of the story, in the concept of "artistically justifiable nudity". In some cases nudity is itself the object of a film or is used in the development of the character of the subject. In some cases, nudity has been criticized as "superfluous" or "gratuitous" to the plot, and some film producers have been accused of including nudity in a film to appeal to certain audiences. Many actors and actresses have appeared nude, or exposing parts of their bodies or dressed in ways considered provocative by contemporary standards at some point in their careers. Nudity in film should be distinguished from sex in film. Erotic films are suggestive of sexuality, and usually contain nudity, though that is not a prerequisite. Nudity in a sexual context is common in pornographic films , but softcore pornographic films generally avoid depiction of a penis or a vulva.
