EYES WIDE SHUT (1999): A Teen's Orgy with Japanese Businessmen

In Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Dr. Harford (Tom Cruise) went to the Rainbow costume boutique to purchase a cloak and mask to attend a masquerade (i.e., orgy). While perusing the racks, Milich, the owner, discovered his young daughter having a three-way with two middle-aged Asian men. 

After Milich, understandably yet violently, confronted the Asian men, he was informed by one of the Asian men, "Are you crazy? We were invited here by the young lady." To which Milich replied, "Young lady. Couldn't you see she's a child?"

However, in a subsequent scene, Milich consented to the three-way between his "child" and the two Asian men.

Although, Milich didn't believe the Asian ephebophile's claims, their claims are very realistic, because contrary to popular belief, it is not uncommon for age-discrepant relationships to have been initiated by teens. However, thanks to feminists, ephebophiles need to be aware of the age-of-consent laws in their respective states before consenting to the advances of alluring nymphets.

Eyes Wide Shut was nominated for a César Award for Best Foreign Film, and the erotic drama is based on Arthur Schnitzler's 1926 novella Dream Story.
