Theexistence in a film of any sexuality has brought controversies since the creation of the medium.Only a few movies are frank about both male and female sexuality. Some people support sexualscenes arguing that sex is an instinct. Thus the film is an imitation in real life. Moreover, sexscenes help to depict the aspects of a character in a short period. Such elements include shyness,dominant, submissive, or inhibited. Furthermore, some people state that sexual exploration in afilm represents the behavior that most adolescents have. However, Religious leaders havecriticized sexual films, while the government has banned some movies, declared them a subjectfor censorship, or both. The government claims that most adolescents spent their leisure timewatching content on different platforms, thus, they are more prone to sexual scenes.1In stateswith the movie rating system, movies covering sexual scenes typically receive a constrainedclassification.
