Actually...'P' was for pornography., 8 August 2002
Author: xfile1971 from Northbrook, IL, USA

This documentary comes across as something you might have seen in a progressive sex ed class in the '70s. It gives you a few facts and is extremely dull. If you're expecting something along the lines of a soft porn movie then you'll be disappointed. If you're expecting to learn a lot of interesting things about sex then you'll be disappointed. Plenty of nudity but nothing too steamy (except for a couple of good looking young women making out on a bed together.) I was surprised that they had a very liberal stance on homosexuality but then proceeded to portray all gay guys as flamboyant queens or cross-dressers. Whatever. 2/10
