Set during Ming Dynasty, the film follows a young scholar, Wei, who falls for beautiful maiden at first sight. As much as they are in love, the scholar is sexually inadequate, and soon the sexually frustrated Wei is invited as a guest to Prince Ning's "Pavilion of Extreme Ecstasy", where a whole harem of naked nymphettes are kept to satisfy men's wildest fantasies. Wei begins to lose himself in lustful pursuits, and goes to the extreme of getting a donkey organ transplant to enhance his tiny manhood. There is an inconvenient side effect, the lecherous scholar becomes so indulged in carnal pleasure that he fails to see the deadly trap set up for him... This 3D Theatrical Version comes with 23 minutes of special features including commentaries, trailers, and several making-of featurettes.

Based on Chinese folklore regarding an ancient carnal prayer mat and some additional bizarre cultural myths, it centers on a young Ming-dynasty era scholar and his sexual encounters with the beautiful wealthy daughter he sets himself up to marry, and the concubines he beds in other attempts at sexual fulfillment. At some point he's made aware that his toolbox is a little light, and vows to do something dramatic about it, with the assistance of a depraved prince who presides over the "Pavilion of Extreme Esctacy" and his hermaphrodite court magician, as well as a few bungling handicapped surgeons who once studied with a great master now deceased. There's a healthy dose of comedic moments here, as there was in the original, but it's not quite as silly as the first.
The first hour of this film is impressive all around, from the gorgeous women, the colors, sets, women, costuming, effects and, oh yeah, the stunning women. Breathtaking babes whether draped or undraped, there's nudity heaped upon us tastefully and copiously every couple of minutes, and the scenes at the degenerate prince's mountain fortress display a carnal carnival environment I can only pray is part of my afterlife - I can dream, can't I? Shady deals are made, plots are hatched, schemes are in motion, and surgery is performed, endowing the dubious hero with the tool of a donkey, at which time he hoses down the countryside with great vigor, giving new meaning to the phrase 'Chinese Firedrill'. It's all done in dimwitted, lighthearted fun, but have I mentioned the women are beyond gorgeous? They make Salome look like Margaret Thatcher...
Unfortunately, the second hour (and yes, the film is too long because of this) becomes flaccid by miring itself down in too many cinematic clichés involving archetypal good guys vs. bad guys, minor martial arts (flying daggers and stars hurled right at the screen for the 3D effect) and ridiculous fight scenes, a race against time to save the principal characters from the evil lord and certain death, you know, the stuff associated with a typical, tepid Shaw Brothers flick from the 70's. In a foolish attempt to broaden its horizon and audience (though it did do phenomenal numbers at the box office - did parents bring their kids to this? You never know, as we're so uptight about nudity in the states, but torture or carve people up and it's ok), the film loses track of itself, so the second half has almost nothing to do with the first, and the nudity and exploitative elements are watered down considerably. Have I mentioned that the women are drop-dead gorgeous?
The ending is typical Hollywood - not so much awful, just that corny 'feel good' crap that makes me feel awful when all is said and done. Simply put, it's the wrong kind of 'happy ending' for an exploitation film, almost Speilberg-like (and that's no compliment). Is it worth seeing? Sure it is - have I mentioned the women are stunners and the nudity abundant??? 3 ½ stars, but could have been a 5 if the effort to broaden its market appeal was abandoned. So get on your carnal prayer mat and pray the sequel stays truer to its core...
