By the Gods!

Mara Lane and Brad Harris in 79 AD: THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM (1962)

Guess what they're talking about in this scene? Sex, of course. They used words acceptable back then to discuss the topic but that's the gist of it. This scene is often cut from certain editions, such as the Spanish DVD which cuts out the entire beginning of this moment. That's nearly 10 minutes from the original version. It's a great looking PEPLUM movie. The story is so so, like so many other Brad Harris movies. I like watching it just to watch it, not necessarily for the convoluted story. Mara Lane, sister of PEPLUM star Jackie Lane, is quite good in this and makes me wonder why she didn't have more roles.
