Reportedly, during development and prior to production, actor Graeme Blundell didn't want to reprise his part as Alvin Purple. Apparently, Blundell wanted to play a gangster. Around the time, the film The Godfather (1972) was very much in vogue. As such, the script was written with gangsters and a gangster role of Balls McGee for Blundell. Consequently, only the first act (third) of this movie is most like the original The Sex Therapist (1973), the rest of the movie being more of a mob-comedy.
