Storyline

While their husbands are away on a hunting trip, two bored housewives get together to commiserate. One thing leads to another, and they wind up in bed. For one of the women the incident was just a pleasant diversion, but for the other it's turned into a fixation, and when she sees her "lover" going after one of the male neighborhood hunks, things take a turn for the worse.

Despite an overdose of social sincerity in the first half, this film basically emerges as your typical early 70s exploitation fare. It's about a couple of housewives whose husbands leave for a sporting trip so they decide to explore their relationship with each other, in a romantic way. One of the girls (I couldn't tell you which one at this point) gets really involved with it on a personal level and the other is just playing around and is really more interested in cheating with a neighborhood guy. There's a brief bit of action when the hubby finds out but other than that it's a lot of bad dialog and a little bit of hard exploitation. The serious girl goes to a drug party with a couple of lesbians and almost gets seduced by some kind of a big-shot art personality (another woman).

I found the girl on girl exploitation to be decent but quite brief and lacking in any kind of fetishism or visual humor. The girl on guy exploitation was even more dull. So if anyone is looking at this comment for a recommendation I'd tell you to avoid it unless you're particularly interested in the subject of Hollywood portrayals of homosexuality. If you already saw it and you're looking for more information I don't have any, and if you're looking for insight I don't think there's much to see into here.
