Trivia

Due to the filming being very rushed, several of the characters go up (flub) on their lines on-camera several times. Most noticeable is around the 27-minute mark where one character mistakenly refers to Harry as 'Fred' and the same character calls Fred, 'Gene' and the others correct him on-camera; they are all clearly seen trying not to break character by cracking up.

excellent shot sexploitation by Lewis
23 October 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

For me as a horror buff Herschell Gordon Lewis is best known for his Blood Feast (1963) horror recalled as the first gory slasher flick. But as many directors back then they also made some soft core sexploitation flicks. Those of Herschell were supposed to be lost until they popped up last year and were released on Blu ray.

Don't think you will see some excellent acting. This flick is pure sexploitation like you can find so many back then in the sixties but coming from Herschell hands they were really sought after.

In Ecstasies Of Women we learn to meet Harry (Walter Camp) in a go-go dance club surrounded with his friends on his bachelor party. having some booze and looking at the naked girls walking in the club he has flash backs from conquering girls he want to get laid with.

And of course that are the most important moments in this flick. Of course it's soft core so nothing is really shown except naked juggs and hairy pussies. Walter Camp was only seen in this flick and never heard again of, the girls he made love with on his boat did appear in other sexploitation flicks.

Just looking at the way it was shot it was excellent done except for the hand-held camera, everything was edited well (except the scene with Phil were you can spot the lens of a camera on the left), so nothing was revealed although here and there you can spot the genitals but no intercourse was shot. What we did have was some overdubs by the girls while having sex. The screaming and coming was clearly done after wards.

Lewis shot three sex films between 1969 and 1971 that fell completely off the radar – The Ecstasies of Women, Linda and Abilene (western) and Black Love (rated as porn) all under the pseudonyms of Mark Hansen and R.L Smith. The where supposed to be lost as I stated earlier but are now out there for the geeks of sexploitation and sixties erotic flicks. You have to take the titty club and the over acting by Camp to see the dream sequences but hey, the lead didn't stole his name, pure camp. Out on region free Blu Ray.
