Storyline

British Sexploitation/Sex Comedy. Lord Wingate, aquitted after appearing in court for fraud, starts up a 'finishing school' to teach girls how to extract money from rich men, in return for a percentage of their gains. He enlists the help of the Duchess of Burwood (Alcoholic Aristocrat played by Rose Alba) as a teacher and Hector (Cockney Geezer played by Nosher Powell) as fitness instructor. A probation officer friend supplies the first batch of pupils fresh from Holloway prison via a clapped out old mini bus. Suspicious neighbours and police together with newspaper reports naming the prison girls now hobnobbing in high society results in a raid and new court appearance for Lord Wingate. The Judge sentences him but plots to start up his own 'school for sex'. Written by David Evans <rabbitwarren1@bigfoot.com>

A sexy early outing for horror director Pete Walker
23 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An early effort from Pete Walker, this one takes the form of a lightweight sex comedy that's a bit like an old Carry On or St. Trinian's movie with added nudity. It involves an unscrupulous businessman who decides to set up a business training young girls in the art of seduction, and all of the hijinks that ensue.

I always find Walker to be a professional director and his writing isn't so bad either. SCHOOL FOR SEX is obviously a low budget production, but it's an acceptable timewaster with it. Derek Aylward is a likeably roguish lead and there's a good eye for detail in the casting, too; Nosher Powell is a perfect fit as the P.E. teacher, and Rosa Alba brings a touch of class to the proceedings as the Countess. There aren't as many familiar faces here as in other British sex comedies from the era, although popular starlet Francoise Pascal makes an early appearance as one of the students.

The humour is either groan-worthy or mildly amusing depending on your tastes for this sort of stuff, but the nude scenes are plentiful and playful, and the actresses undeniably attractive. It's certainly one of the more lightweight and forgettable Pete Walker movies I've seen, but given the amount of poor British sex comedies in existence, it could be worse.
