Hard on the heels of the 1973 mainstream hit Westworld came this 1977 Anthony Spinelli opus, with bored New Yorkers taking a bus trip to Sex World, "where all your erotic dreams come true," and flashbacks show us the real life that they're escaping. At each client's orientation interview, experts eavesdrop, arranging the ideal fantasy. Some things presented, like a man and a woman masturbating during phone sex, or John Leslie as a racist rejecting Desiree West, or Kay Parker wanting to be overpowered by a man and getting just what she wants while her henpecked hubby watches, may not please people just looking for sex. There's more than just sex here — at least an attempt at it — along with the '70s Golden Age matter-of-fact acceptance of the sex, the made-from-scratch original music and film production values.
The images are clean considering the age of the material. Some overscanning leads to picture falling of the edge of the screen.
