Worth staying awake for.
22 December 1998 | by (Here) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a pretty good film, although I was 13 years old when I saw it. So chalk it up to gushing hormones. This was the type of movie, along with "Black Emanuelle," etc. that would appear on Showtime at about 2 A.M.

"The Sex Machine" is an Italian sex comedy. The film taks place during an energy crisis; all the oil and electricity are gone. A scientist invents some kind of transducer which converts orgasms into electricity, thus providing a new source of energy.

I remember that I really enjoyed watching the nurse character.

Worth staying awake for, if it ever comes on again!
