To promote his new movie about a woman’s erotic experiences, director Lars Von Trier released a set of posters that has everyone talking.

The posters for  Nymphomaniac shows each of the cast members sans clothing and in the middle of an orgasm to illuminate the main theme of the movie.

The 14 posters were released last week and feature stars like Charlotte Gainsbourg, Uma Thurman, Stellan Skarsgard, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell, Shia LeBeouf, and more.

The movie generated some controversy when actor LeBeouf reportedly told MTV News that the sex scenes wouldn’t be simulated. One of the producers later clarified that they filmed the actors pretending to have sex and then filmed body doubles who really did have sex.

The movie is set to open in Denmark in December and, reportedly, a more “hard-core” version will be released at Cannes next year.
