The film ends with a promise of a sequel: "Don't miss the next exciting episode - The Perils Of Flesh", which failed to materialize. A sequel of sorts was eventually released in 1989. See more »
In one of the first scenes, a character clearly says, "Dr. Gordon, all of us here are aware of the total degragation that has overcome the masses." Obviously, he was meant to say "degradation." See more »
I'm Prince Precious, rightful heir to the throne of Porno. Years ago, this planet was a veritable paradise. But Wang, a maniacal botanist whose organ was devoured by a crazed Penis Flytrap, could not tolerate the existence of so much pleasure, and so, banding together an army of the impotent and frustrated, and armed with a small but effective sex ray, plunged my palace into carnal chaos, and took it over.

The very first film I saw this year was this one. Bravo (in Canada) aired this one New Year's Day.
Flesh Gordon is an ingenious spoof of "Flash Gordon" which set the standard for the porno industry to spoof just about everything.
The story is pretty simple. Emperor Wang of the Planet Porno has unleashed a sex ray on Earth that needs to be stopped. Flesh Gordon and his crew have to stop it.
This film (BTW, the extended DVD version) has some pretty good stopmotion effects, which represent the beasts that Flesh and company have to battle. One of them, the final monster, was actually voiced by Craig T. Nelson.
The film isn't hardcore, but there's a lot of nudity (male and female). The DVD version includes the orgy that goes on in Emperor Wang's throne room. Also, there is a sex scene with Flesh and Amora which wasn't in the original cut.
The movie is very cheap looking and made on a low budget. The acting is hit or miss. Some characters, like Dale, who spends most of the film screaming annoyingly are awful, but there are some hilarious lines here, too. One of the servants calls Emperor Wang "Your Assholiness". And wait until the guy with one of the all-time monikers (Dr. Flexi Jerkoff) describes one stopmotion monster as a "penisauraus".
This is a crazy film that has to be seen once. It reminds me of the good old days of cinema, when it was fun to go because you never knew what outrageousness could happen in movies.
