A scene from Pasolini's ARABIAN NIGHTS

This scene is played whimsically/humorously in the film so keep that in mind. Like so many of his films Pasolini hired unknowns, almost all good looking and even though they didn't have any acting skills (this film is no exception) his films are so devoid of "obvious" exploitation that they seem more lyrical than anything else. Released by United Artist, it's the kind of film that could only have been made in the 1970s.
