Big names in the cast differentiate this routine porn opus from hundreds of similar amateurish productions of the early '70s, representing the other half of the equation at a time when Porno Chic was in its ascendancy. That difference was a forerunner of today's story vs. gonzo dichotomy -basically a distinction in ambitions. These Avon theater productions were made to supply a steady stream of content for theatrical exhibition, nothing more, nothing less.
Story of a Dr. Cordoba helping folks with sexual problems has nothing to do whatsoever with teenagers - that title reference is simply a phony audience come-on. The film, which features odd musical choices in the manner of Shaun Costelllo's Avons (but is not credited to him and unlikely to be his work at all) has several in-jokes of an insider nature, as in a reference to "The Late George Appley". It is not inconceivable that this was made by a film literate auteur, in which case the title riff on a '50s Dirk Bogarde hit "The Doctor's Dilemma" might have been intentional.
Three of Gotham's best players dominate the proceedings: Marc Stevens trotting out his familiar "my dick is bigger than yours" routine for the umpteenth time; Tina Russell looking fine but with a lesser role than usual (she was a big star at the time); and future disco star Andrea True as another patient named Mrs. Goldfarb, whose problem is she's a necrophiliac. At one point a girl sings a bawdy song, and True at the piano joins in vocalizing, a hint of a career yet to unfold.
The level of humor is asinine, as in a tongue depressor used by the doc for a gynecological examination. There's even a finale lifted from the hit "Deep Throat", as Stevens does an X-rated burlesque routine with a Nurse Anderson.
