Seven segments related to one another only in that they all purport to be based on sections of the book by David Reuben. The segments range from "Do Aphrodisiacs Work?" in which a court jester gives an aphrodisiac to the Queen and is, in the end, beheaded to "What Happens During Ejaculation?" in which we watch 'control central' during a successful seduction.

Woody Allen's favorite segment in this movie is "Why Do Some Women Have Trouble Reaching an Orgasm?". See more »
At the end of the fourth segment the transvestite man's wife exclaims: "The look on their faces when the police removed your hat!" and the man laughs in response. But it was actually the man himself who had removed his hat on being recognized by his wife. See more »
Here I'm studying premature ejaculation in a hippopotamus.
How often does that problem come up with a hippo?
Here I'm forcing a man to have intercourse with a large rye bread. They're getting on famously! Here I'm going to take the brain of a lesbian and put it into the body of a man who works for the telephone company.
But why? What good will this do anybody?
It'll show those fools who called me mad!

This is a very funny parody of pop sex-psychology literature
The film is entirely about sexual perversions, even though it is not technically erotic Allen has taken some of the most popular clinical treatments of sexual fetishes and has placed them into very unusual situations
Gene Wilder, for example, falls in love with a sheep; Woody Allen plays a medieval court jester who gets his lance stuck in his lady's chastity belt while the king is off fighting in the Crusades; a giant breast is released upon the countryside; an Italian couple can only find happiness in public sex; and we are taken into the inner labors of a male human body as it tries to seduce a woman in a car
Each individual scene is quite well done The tales are rapid filled with irony about the overly exaggerated importance of sex in our culture
