Storyline

Ben, Larry, Alan, and Steve are about to graduate from college. They are terrified of the prospect of actually having to work hard for a living, so they come up with a plan to support themselves as graduate research students by getting a foundation grant to study sexuality in college-age women. But despite their success at getting paid to bed down pretty girls, the work-load becomes too great, so they open the "study" to businessmen who pay to participate. Only a small mind would call it prostitution, and only a pessimist would think it could backfire.... Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Boring movie about horny college kids? Yup
25 March 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Horny college boys setting up a phony sex clinic in order to meet girls could've been the basis for a fairly funny movie. Unfortunately, this one isn't it. It doesn't even have the saving grace that '80s movies of the same genre had--completely gratuitous nudity. Priscilla Barnes gets naked (well, topless anyway) for a moment, and a few other nameless "actresses" do, but that's about it. Has a few funny moments, but not nearly enough to make it worth sitting through. It has a better than usual cast for this type of movie, but they don't have much to do. Director Rod Amateau made a bunch of these types of movies, but he hasn't learned how to make a good one yet. Don't waste your time or your money on this dog.
