Film Censorship: Girls Gone Wild Series


 

 

 

 

Girls Gone Wild Series

Generally, we try to avoid covering adult titles that were censored down to R18+. If an adult film was supposed to be hardcore, and is awarded an R18+ rating, then it is cut.

However, the GIRLS GONE WILD series is interesting as they sit on the border between the two ratings. Indeed, they appear to be aimed squarely at the R18+ market for soft-core sex.

The majority of the series were passed with R18+ ratings. Several were awarded X18+, though these were usually eventually censored down to a more commercial R18+. Three titles were Refused Classification.

 

 

UNCENSORED! = False Advertising!

There was a real problem the way the Australian distributor marketed the censored GIRLS GONE WILD releases. They still carried the U.S. covers, which proclaimed them to be UNCENSORED!

As you can see from the following titles, this was a blatant case of false advertising.

A number of titles that were previously rated and released as R18+ were resubmitted and increased to X18+, and in one case RC. This would seem to indicate that they may have been pre-cut prior to their original submissions

If you know of any censorship of other entries in the series then please send in the details.


 

 

 

 

Girls Gone Wild: Best Breasts Ever 2

Produced by Mantra Films / 2007 / USA

This film has never had problems with the Australian censors. It is included because the distributor censored it prior to submission to the Classification Board.

It was resubmitted and awarded a higher X18+ (Explicit Sex) rating in November 2008. This indicates that the original submission was probably pre-cut prior to classification.

 

Information from Jack.
The R18+ version runs 52:17. I didn't notice any obvious cuts, although I am sure it is censored.

The R18+ DVD runs 48:23 and is censored. I noticed on cut where Jessica (the Katie Holmes look-a-like) is shown naked on the bed with her legs apart. The guy behind the camera is heard saying "..and". The soundtrack jumps at 25:11 and we next see her on her side masturbating. I am sure this is not the only censorship.

Girls Gone Wild: First Timers

Produced by Mantra Films / 2006 / USA

Zeal Entertainment had a DVD of GIRLS GONE WILD: FIRST TIMERS Refused Classification in May 2007.

The reason was:
Film 1(a) The film is classified RC in accordance with the National Classification Code, Films Table, 1. (a) as films that "depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified."

This would seem to indicate that the sex was just a little too strong for R18+, which pushed it into the X18+ category. Once there, the restrictions would have become a whole lot tighter (e.g. zero violence), which pushed it into RC territory.

No attempt was made to get a lower rating.

Girls Gone Wild: Sexes Up Las Vegas

Zeal Entertainment had a DVD of GIRLS GONE WILD: SEXES UP LAS VEGAS rated R18+ (High level sexualised nudity, High level sexual activity) in March 2008.

In November 2008, a second submission was Refused Classification.

The reason was:
Film 1(b) The film is classified RC in accordance with the National Classification Code, Films Table, 1. (b) as films that "depict in a way that is likely to cause offence to a reasonable adult, a person who is, or appears to be, a child under 18 (whether the person is engaged in sexual activity or not)."

We suspect this version was uncut and that Zeal Entertainment was aiming for an X18+ (Explicit Sex) rating.

Review of censored R18+ version

Information by Jack
The R18+ version runs 45:11 which must make it censored. Online retailers seem to quote a running time of 58m for the U.S. version. I only noticed one obvious cut (but there must be more) and that takes place at 10:36. This is the scene of the girl in the hotel room who later goes to the outdoor spa. She is shown on all four and puts her hands between her legs, the scene then cuts at 10:36.

The thing with these DVDs is that it is so easy to remove entire scenes so unless you compare it to the uncut version then it makes it hard to notice something is missing. I've attached a screen cap of the R18+ DVD menu where you can see that they claim it is uncensored.

Lying fucks!
