Here is an article by a New York Times film critic on the onslaught of sex and nudity in American movies (he didn't like it):

"Our movies are becoming more blatantly obsessed with sex...It is no secret that in recent years Hollywood producers have felt there was a need for "liberalizing" the Production Code...I asked Alfred Hitchcock how he justified introducing Psycho with that blunt assignation scene. His retort:"

"How do you critically justify that equally bold introduction to Hiroshima, Mon Amour? I wanted to visualize as clearly as possible the desire and desperation of my heroine...It wouldn't have carried much impact if I had shown them holding hands in a cocktail lounge."
