A sugary voice-over introduces us to "Les Chic," a gigolo whose style, she explains, is neither "too far out" nor "too faggy." Phillips serves up some nicely composed girl/girl, couple and threesome scenes that make great use of light and shadows.
A non-sex highlight is the post-fuck stroll Chic and Rene Bond take through San Francisco's North Beach district, which looks pretty much the same in this 1972 footage as it does today.
Don't expect the bass-heavy soul or disco music commonly associated with classic porn, however: These body-painting, flower-grasping sexcapades are accented with flutes and folksy guitars. It's the closest thing to hippie porn this reviewer has ever seen, but strangely, that's not a bad thing.
