People in the UK who want to see these films have to make do with the hard stuff cut out. Things are improving with more explicit material being passed but still short of uncensored hardcore. The late Teri Diver's Masquerade is a good example of this more liberal attitude to erotic films and means that we do not have to tolerate the worn out trick of repeating clips to pad out the run time.
There are about eight erotic scenes in this film which includes a whipped cream fight, S and M bondage, girl/girl in the garage and a couple of shower scenes. The basic plot is about how a young woman, Toni (Chelle' - note the apostrophe after the e), working as a car mechanic finds a caring man at a party. First of all, she goes through various scenes in which she imagines herself with a male mechanic and a female friend who does body painting. The body painting could have been a lot more interesting. A lot of time was obviously spent on this but we saw little of it being done. Instead we see the end result but only in a dimly lit party setting. The scenes in which Toni gets naked are quite well done. Teri Diver knew how to shoot these scenes with both long shots and lingering close-ups. The bondage scene was not to my taste, nor the metal body piercing. On a lighter note, we discover that sex aids are all part of the modern mechanic's toolkit.
This is quite a good showing from a director who is, tragically, no longer with us. We get plenty of erotic action and it is pleasant to see natural good looking women, so 7 stars.
