Directed by Tim Pope, Soft Cell’s Sex Dwarf video, released to promote their debut album, created quite a scandal in 1981. Claiming it was pornographic, British police actually confiscated copies of the video. It was banned from MTV at the time and has been banned from YouTube though it pops up now and then. The Sex Dwarf clip reminds me of the films of Jack Smith and The Kuchar Brothers. The obviously smutty setup – from both the tune and the tone taken by the clip - is to get willing ladies to come up to Soft Cell's flat and film some decedent debauchery for the band's delight. But unlike "Sex Dwarf", which uses a "Love to Love You Baby" sex sound scenario to shade its sonics, the moans and groans here are just plain pitiful.
