You know you’re movie’s pretty damn sexy when the frickin’ trailer is banned from airing on TV due to sexual content.

Tulip Fever, the new film from the producers of Shakespeare in Love and director Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl), centers on a 17th century painter’s illicit relationship with a girl (Alicia Vikander) he was hired to paint. While that synopsis doesn’t exactly scream “graphic sex,” rest assured the trailer is full of dramatically untied corsets, steamy un-air-conditioned attic fornication, the missionary position and sexual innuendos involving tulips. Given all the naked thrusting, the trailer was deemed a wee bit too racy to air on TV. (It also makes painfully clear the lessons we learned from Titanic: whatever you do, do NOT let your wife get painted by some hot young stud. You will always lose that battle.)

Tulip Fever comes out next Friday. Watch the (probably, very) NSFW trailer below.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
