Miss Kissey Hill, daughter of now late notorious 19th century high-class prostitute Fanny Hill is walking in her mom's footsteps and has an even more notorious reputation. Supposedly, she can service any man under the table. The story focuses on one long and vary faithful day in her life, during which she receives various more or less perverted nobles, and occasionally the less noble, in her very stylish upper-class boudoir and salon and services them. Afterwards, she, with some difficulty, writes in her diary her opinion on them. Some of her clients on that day are a very old and horny aristocrat, light s&m-loving Count de Sade, an inexperienced but "talented" farm boy who just came to town, three young aristocrats who bring two more girls for an exhibitionist swinger party, and finally Duchess of Roxbury who visits Kissey as the night falls.

A disappointing release from Something Weird Video
I love Something Weird Video and its vast panoply of strangeness. That said, this DVD is not amongst their best. When I watch a movie that I know is bad, I want the sort of bad movie that my friends and I can sit and mercilessly heckle. And certainly this movie is very bad. The problem with "The Notorious Daughter of Fanny Hill" is that it is not quite bad enough. It is low budget, fairly tame, but moderately competent softcore semiporn. Skin flicks on Cinemax are racier than this dated outing. What this film really accomplishes is being really magnificently boring.
The second offering in the DVD, "The Head Mistress" is somewhat better at being bad to the point of funny, but still mostly manages to be exhaustively boring softcore. The DVD is also loaded with extras and the trailers here came the closest to making me feel like I didn't waste my money. But overall, I believe this DVD is not worth the effort. Instead pickup the endlessly entertaining "Beauties and Beasts" Box Set.
