Plot

The story is about a lustful scholar (played by Lawrence Ng) who dares to challenge the moral teachings of the Sack Monk. The monk attempts to lecture the scholar that spiritual enlightenment transcends the passions of the flesh but the scholar, who enjoys women, doesn’t agree. However, the most powerful man in the town marries his daughter, played by Amy Yip, to the scholar. The daughter is a virgin and has been taught that sex is dirty.

The scholar, after a disastrous yet humorous wedding night, soon initiates his bride into the pleasures of sex, aided greatly by the illustrations of a copy of a sex manual. The amorous husband goes about his ‘scholastic travels’ where he meets the greatest thief known to man. The thief is able to sneak into people’s houses undetected, and the scholar wants to learn this skill so that he can sleep with other men’s wives. The thief is initially willing to help him, until he catches the scholar one day and discovers that the scholar is not very well-endowed.

The thief tells the scholar that stealing other men’s wives requires good lovemaking skills and equipment. He promises to help the scholar only if he has a horse’s penis. Of course, the thief does not think it is possible, until the scholar returns one day, indeed, with a horse’s penis attached as his own. Apparently, the scholar met a doctor who was able to replace anatomical parts (a scene with a cameo by Hong Kong comedian Kent Cheng).

The doctor managed to transplant a horse’s penis to replace the scholar’s meager one. Armed with his new 20-inch penis, the scholar goes on a sexual rampage, not caring if he is seducing other men’s wives or is nearly caught in the process. Meanwhile, the scholar’s wife, after experiencing the joys of sex, becomes sexually frustrated. She tries masturbating with paintbrushes but is left unsatisfied until she has an affair with the gardener, the husband of one of the wives the scholar seduced. She becomes pregnant and runs away with the man, who out of revenge sells her to a brothel, the madam assaults her leading to a miscarriage, originally unwilling she is coerced into becoming a prostitute and comes to enjoy her new life.

The scholar has become frail and sick due to too much sex (involving two sisters-in-law who are bisexual and into S&M). He goes to the brothel for treatment, where he is offered the top courtesan. At first, husband and wife cannot recognize each other; she looks at his penis and thinks it cannot be her husband’s because his is small; he cannot recognize her because his eyesight is failing. While they are having sex, he takes a close look at her figure and nipple and recognizes her. To her dismay, he screams, shouts and calls her a disgrace. To his dismay, she runs off and hangs herself. The man, completely broken, goes back to the monk to ask for forgiveness. [wikipedia]
