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>

Very Low Budget Film
12 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Group of college boys don't want to leave their college and ask their parents for more funds so they can further their education with other college degrees. In other words, they really want to be professional students and live a carefree live at the expense of the parents or other people. These college guys come up with some wild ideas concerning the complete cooperation of plenty of females as well as, a nutty professor who is studying the sex life of an insect. This is definitely a sexy comedy with plenty of nudity and this film pulls no punches at a certain religion and peoples deep beliefs in a Higher Power. However, it is a comedy and you have to view it as a big joke to have been produced and directed. Dennis Quaid and Priscilla Barnes gave an outstanding performance.
