Circus Acts is hardly the implication of its title which would lead you to suspect high wire balancing fellatio. Rather we come up with some nominal sex scenes, a couple of noteworthies among them, but nothing that you'd put in the class of sideshow material.
Sheri St. Clair in her little stint as the "aunt" who seduces her nephew atop a piano, consistently brings a sparkling, fun-loving quality to her performances, and this excerpt is as typical of her work as any.
Likewise, Tish Ambrose, who's not always given full measure of credit for her performances, engages in a wild lesbian aperitif under a restaurant table. Ambrose is one pretty lady.
But if I'd have to pick one moment, (or one filing cabinet for that matter) that's justifiable argument for the existence of compilation tapes, it's Barbara Dare's segment as a get in on office girl who shows that a 9 to 5 world can have some creative dictation. Dare continues to be the wild woman of sex.
Unfortunately, some of the other bits fall into the realm of stupid—segmented from their original footage, so without the proper setup (the major drawback of compilation), it's like watching half an orgasm.
I would have settled for some slightly better editing.
