(Newser) – Doctors are warning fans of Ang Lee's new film, Lust, Caution, not to try to imitate the sexual positions featured in the movie, Reuters reports. The uncut version's extensive sex scenes moved one Chinese doctor to caution, "Only women with comparatively flexible bodies that have gymnastics or yoga experience are able to perform them."

The censored Chinese version of the film is 7 minutes shorter than the Hong Kong cut, and viewers are streaming across the border to investigate. As if that weren't enough, hundreds of websites offering free downloads of the film are contaminated by viruses. "People should be wary of Web sites that offer free downloading services because their personal passwords can be stolen," says a software expert.
