The concept of this film is similar to the prequel: sex & violence in former times in Rome. There must have been some trouble in the US because each hardcore scene is cut in the US Version but all violent scenes are unharmed.
Generally can be said that the quality of the US DVD is pretty bad: the quality of the images are awful, the sound is kind of noisy all the time and the film is presented in the false aspect ratio as well.
US DVD: 88:57 min
NL Tape: 103:48 min

Comparison of the image:

One of the virgins has oral sex with the male slave, interrupted by cuts to the other virgins, they're masturbating. (Hardcore)

Further scenes of the orgy (e.g. a man vomits plus some hardcore).
Change of scenery: a guard gets killed in front of the palace.
Further scenes of the orgy. (Hardcore)
The woman massages the horse's penis. Caligula, Miriam and the guests are watching her. Further scenes of the orgy from time to time. (Hardcore)
Short dialog between Caligula and Miriam:
Caligula: "Such sensitivity, Miriam. I like it."
The woman lies under the horse. The horse grunts, the woman screams. And again several scenes of the orgy, most of the time oral sex. After a lot of male participants have ejaculated, the US Version restarts. (Hardcore)
