Throughout the centuries, man has lusted for the tenderness of a kiss, the warmth of a sensuous body and the heated pleasures that only hot, abandoned sex can provide. More often than not, a poor marriage can diminish these feelings or reduce them to mere daydreams or fantasies.
This is the case of Duke Durant (Ashley Moore) and his lovely wife Jennifer (Lee Carron) whose marriage is drifting apart. Each living a life of individual fantasy, they masturbate in order to achieve sexual satisfaction. Duke learns to find relief from erotic dancer Lydia Lace, played by the joyous Sharon Mitchell.
Duke is a lawyer whose client is a shapely young bride in search of divorce from her sex-crazed husband (R. Bolla). According to the wife, she is force to have kinky sex with another woman as part of a threesome and she's ready to sue for everything he's worth!
Just by coincidence, Duke's wife is a psychologist whose client just happens to be R. Bolla. He cries "my wife is making me crazy, she forces me to have sex with another woman... She's totally kinky."
Since there are two conflicting stories, Duke and his wife go to a popular hot swingers spot in hopes of finding straight sexual love. What they find will knock your socks and jocks off.
Surprisingly, they also fin R. Bolla with his amorous wife in one arm, and Lydia Lace in the other. What commences here is an all out sexual overture on Duke's wife by Lydia Lace and her married friend, perhaps one of the most erotic scenes in the film.
If you are into big breasted platinum blondes with erotic garters, fishnet stockings and graphic verbalizations, The Widespread Scandals Of Lydia Lace offers these features and satisfyingly so. But there are some disturbing features about this film that cannot go without mention. In a attempt to add a little artiness to the film, director Henri Pachard (Outlaw Ladies, Babylon Pink) uses flashbacks and segues which confuses the viewer. It is hard to distinguish between past, present or sexual fantasy. Lydia is also a bit too slow moving —boring at times. Then there's the matter of poor lighting —either too dark or too bright.
The many scenes featuring two girls and one lucky male were intense and highly erotic. This makes the Widespread Scandals of Lydia Lace a videocassette worth checking out.
