This DVD titled "Female Misbehavior" contains one feature film (80 minutes in length) and 4 short films (each about 10-20 minutes in length).

The feature film is titled "Didn't Do It For Love". This 1993 celebrity-documentary chronicles the life and career of actress/businesswoman, Eva Norvind who (following her stint, in Mexico, as a 1960's screen-siren) went on to become one of NYC's most sought-after dominatrix in the 1980's.

The 4 short films on this disc (which were all filmed between 1984-1992) focus in on "real-life" woman who are either - (1) Porn performance artists - (2) Bondage/fetish professionals - or - (3) Female-to-male transsexuals.

All-in-all - I didn't much enjoy any of these films presented on this DVD. All directed by German film-maker, Monkia Treut - (For the most part) - I found them to be very grungy, sub-par and amateur productions all round.
