This feature film was released in 1976 theatrically, and is rumored to be one of the biggest grossing X-rated films of all time. The reason for this is because there wasn't a lot of hardcore around that was this well produced and presented. Also, there wasn't video yet. So why not do the transfer and rake in some extra bucks? Why not indeed.
Despite some rough-looking women and dubbing throughout, the sex is hot. The plot centers around the Starlets Club. What happens at the club is your basic porn reality: women orgasm from giving head and never seem to get enough sex. If this was 1976, I'd have to say that I was really turned on. But now it seems like more of a curiosity than anything else.
What makes this film work, even today, is that there's a sense of innocence about the way these people have sex. Even when the girls use dildos they are gentle. The editing and production tricks move the picture along smoothly, making one scene slip right into the next. Basically a loop carrier with lots of genital close-ups, I now realize that trimming one's "pubes" is an essential part of porn performance. Every now and then, the slightly lumpy bodies with copious amounts of hair made me think what it would be like to watch my parents have sex. And nobody wants to watch their parents have sex.
