"Before I know it, he's got both of my hands in his viselike grip above my head, and he's pinning me to the wall using his lips . . . His other hand grabs my hair and yanks down, bringing my face up, and his lips are on mine . . . 

"We just released minutes ago the permit to exhibit the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, with a rating of R-18, with certain requirements for the information and welfare of the viewing public. As viewed by our Review Committee, no cuts. We noted, however, that the film producer already introduced some measures of self-regulation into the film prior to review," said Toto Villareal, chairman of the MTRCB, in a text message to Rappler.

To address the sensitivities with regard to the sex scenes in the movie, "there is also the requirement to flash a ten-second disclaimer and notice at the start of every showing," he said.

"Being R-18, no minors shall be allowed to view the movie."
