There would be a few nice scenes missing but nothing that would make a 
huge difference to the plot. Here are a few of the things that would 
probably be removed from an expurgated version:


Zinka's carvings of "delicate ribby-winged beings" who were -- ahem -- 
very closely acquainted with humans
Rupert saying that he and Zinka had been -- ahem -- very closely acquainted
Zinka drawing on a charm on a sleeping man so that they will become -- 
ahem -- very closely acquainted later that evening
References to humans and centaurs interbreeding

If your copy doesn't have those things, it's been expurgated. I am a 
purist so I would buy the unexpurgated version myself but, as I said, 
you wouldn't be missing significant parts of the story.
