Playboy David Galaxy is a suspect in a robbery case and needs an alibi, and the only credible witness to his innocence won't help. He also has to prove his mettle with "the only woman in the world who's never had an orgasm."
The blurb on the back of the Jezebel DVD says that this movie "oozes Britain in the 1970's". Well, it definitely oozes something. . . A professor (George Baker) gives an assignment to male-female pairs of his students to examine sex fantasies over a holiday break. For anybody else, this would a recipe for non-stop softcore scromping, but as usual the Brits have to include WAY too much of a plot and a lot of pretty pathetic attempts at humor. Instead of these attractive young people being content to simply, um, interview each other, one of them interviews an older, unattractive barmaid, another interviews his pigeon-obsessed father (don't ask), and one even interviews an elderly jockey with a serious fat fetish. Needless, to say these people's fantasies usually fall well short of eroticism and are only very funny if you are on nitrous oxide and/or are British.
One Swedish girl with a thumb-sucking fetish (once again, don't ask)played by Anna Bergman interviews her uncle (Ian Hendry) while they are playing a game of billiards. Naturally, his fantasy involves her being a butt-naked while they play. But as enjoyable as it is to see Ingemar Bergman's lovely daughter sans clothing, it's even more sad to see a great actor like Ian Hendry (who was in "Repulsion") reduced to this kind of rubbish. But speaking of "Repulsion" I think there is some kind of homage to that movie here as well with a brief bit about housewife who cures her intense agoraphobia with sexual fantasies (okay, whatever). Of course, the students do have some real sex with each other eventually. One nerdy guy scores with Felicity Devonshire. Marie St. Claire takes all her clothes off for another nerdy guy so he'll be "less distracted". And in the hottest scene Suzy Mandel and Heather Deely discuss lesbianism and decide to experiment with each other. . .
The best reason to see this movie is that it features almost all the British sex stars of the era--Bergman, Mandel, Devonshire, Dealy, etc. (with the exception of Linda Hayden and Koo Stark, who were in a bit higher class, and Fiona Richmond, who wouldn't have been remotely believable as a college student). Mary Millington even shows up in a brief (and uncharacteristically clothed) cameo as a virginal girl who receives an unexpected "back-door delivery" while singing a Cat Steven's song(?) with her church choir. This movie isn't great by any means, but I guess it has its moments.
