Harold (Stuart) is a typical older married man with a hot looking but
frigid wife (Royalle). Her only type of sex
is letting Harold play with her t**s. So, oversexed Harold
eventually succeeds, with the help of the butler Maurice
(R. Bolla), in having sex with each maid. When his wife
them, she fires the girl. Enter Divina (Hart), the new
She beautiful, sexy, friendly, caring and knows what everyone
wants or needs, especially sexual needs, before they ask.
She uses her strange powers to help the family, becoming
kind of sexual Mary Poppins. Only, Mary never helped a
the way Divina does.
This is a good couples movie. The sex is hot but not really raunchy. Enjoy it with someone special.
I am surprised that the previous commentator felt the sex wasn't
raunchy... He must be getting a bit jaded.
The scene at the end where Veronica takes on Bolla and Jeremy and another guy is very hot. Watching her suck one guy, handstroke another, while Jeremy's enormous member slides in and out between her cheeks is hard to beat.
I really like the fact that women didn't shave their pussies in this era.
And the earlier scene where she seduces the son and his girlfriend is pretty good too.

Bill Milling's follow-up - in his "Philip Drexler" incarnation - to his
widely admired A SCENT OF HEATHER, a naughty rendition of Disney's MARY
POPPINS (and, yes, to all you purists out there, I am aware that P.L.
Travers wrote the source novel but pretty much everyone else associates
the character with pretty Julie Andrews rather than the sour spinster
as the author described her), may borrow several of his previous film's
resources star Veronica Hart, same mansion but could hardly be more
different in style and tone. In all its unforced playfulness, not to
mention a generous helping of Hart hardcore her fans won't want to miss
out on, it remains one of the most purely enjoyable early '80s adult
Wealthy Mr Harold (engagingly portrayed by Aaron Stuart, an attractive actor in the early stages of middle age far removed from the stereotypical "porn stud" image) and Lady Caroline (future Femme founder Candida Royalle in her finest performance) seem to have a spot of bother trying to keep a maid, mostly because Harold can't keep his hands of them and his spouse has the annoying habit of walking in on them in flagrante. Matters are no different with their latest servant, superstar Desirée Cousteau of Alex De Renzy's PRETTY PEACHES fame, who's immediately sent packing. To give the Master his due, it's not really his fault. Cold fish Caroline abstains from carnality during the day and refuses her husband any frivolous favors other than letting him fondle her bountiful breasts ! Mere moments after she has contacted the agency for Desirée's successor, Divina (Hart) magically appears and is hired on the spot. Butler Maurice (Robert Kerman a/k/a "R. Bolla" on fine form) informs her that all hired help has to put out for him sexually to assure smooth sailing. When he's casually rebuffed, he plots revenge along with the randy gardener (Ron Jeremy, amazingly slender at this early stage of a soon to be three decade career) and Caroline's scheming brother James, beautifully played by the monumentally undervalued Michael Gaunt, an openly bisexual actor (he co-starred in the John Amero & Michael Findlay (a/k/a "Francis Ellie" on such joint ventures) gay porn classic KISS TODAY GOODBYE) who would live his finest hour in Roger Watkins' challenging American BABYLON. The remainder of the family certainly can't find any fault with Divina. She soothes Harold's pent-up passions while his wife's right there in the room, though the maid magically assures she can't see what's going on. The couple's horny offspring, Henry (an early appearance by the ever excellent Jerry Butler), tires of trying to make out with his feisty fiancée Harriet (Nicole Scent) while her parents (George Payne & Jane Kelton) are out, so Divina arranges a threesome with herself as an added bonus. Even Caroline succumbs to the domestic's charms, leading into an all time lesbo liaison with both ladies reduced to miniature size for a bout of sizzling lovemaking on a Brillo pad surrounded by huge pencils and boxes of crayons ! Even occasional Golden Age browsers should recognize most of the cast here, presumably with the exception of Scent and Kelton, a pair of blonde Milling discoveries who both turned up in his highly entertaining BLONDE GODDESS. Thin, small-breasted and husky-voiced Nicole had played a frisky maid (wearing the same outfit as Hart does here perhaps ?) in Drexler's HEATHER. The decidedly fuller-figured Jane briefly popped up as one of the original ALL American GIRLS. The sex may not seem overly adventurous to a present day porn audience, though there's a peculiar proliferation of "cowgirl" (i.e. woman on top, straddling her flat on his back mate), but that is more than made up for by its heartfelt nature. Veronica, then still a natural brunette (she would go blonde and redhead at various stages in her career), takes the lion's share of the lusty duties at hand and was clearly destined for imminent super-stardom both in the thespian and sexual sweepstakes. Her grand finale with Kerman, Gaunt and Jeremy deserves special mention as it's the single scene to fleetingly feature rear end insertion, albeit post-coitally and just before a fade.
The director does a wonderful job keeping up the pace by playing the material as a French bed-hopping farce with all the performers perfectly capable of hitting all the right notes. First-rate production matches their efforts every step of the way. Milling was not exactly renowned for his stinginess after all, rarely reticent to board a plane with a bunch of pretty people, whisking them off to whatever exotic location he fancied for stuff that usually wound up in later, more loosely plotted endeavors like HOT STUFF or IN THE PINK. Best investment he made here may be acquiring the services of camera man Mike Stryker, whose trademark brightly-colored, close-up studded style (the breathtaking credits sequence he shot for Ed De Priest's SKINTIGHT should serve as his calling card) truly complements the whimsical fantasy theme, making DELICIOUS a rare, successful adult exploration of such cinematic territory generally and not altogether unjustly - deemed beyond the industry's grasp.
