The second installment of the successful Black Emanuelle
-series starring Laura Gemser was released in the UK for the first time on DVD in 2008. In order to receive a BBFC-18 rating, the studio had to censor 3 scenes of the movie. Besides a rooster fight and a mongoose fighting a snake, one of the rape scenes had to be cut out. Since the studio wanted to a void the hardly profitable BBFC R18-rating, they additionally decided to also cut out the scene where a woman sticks ping pong balls up her vagina. The Italian DVD by Stormovie is only one European alternative that includes the entirely uncut version.0:00:00 / 0:00:00

After the camera panned down to the ping pong balls, the BBFC already fades to the second dancer's performance. You don't see her putting the first ping pong ball in her vagina. She then continues to dance until the ball falls out. Jimmy picks it up and throws it to the dancer. While the dancer shoves some more ping pong balls inside of her, Emanuelle and Frances touch their accompaniment's crotches. At the end of the performance, the dancer lets all ping pong balls fall out of her vagina.
