The anonymous filmmakers of SEX AS YOU LIKE IT invented a whole new industry and didn't even know it. Sort of like Arthur C. Clarke inventing the communications satellites that are such an important part of our daily lives.
This series of all-star vignettes has the novel (remember, this is 1972) premise of people phoning in requests for sex acts to be shown on closed circuit TV, to which they subscribe. There is no cable, no Betamax, no VHS, no DVD, no nothing, so the forecasting of visual sex piped into one's home is a creative notion.
With such popular and stimulating cast members the film is easy to take, even though its attempts at humor pretty much fail. The sex is adventurous, as in an opening segment when Candy Samples not only whips a guy but puts on a strap-on and finishes him off. John Holmes has both Sandys orally competing for his member, and just when the cast is tired out and ready to call it a day, a caller insists that they come back for an orgy.
Typical of the tastelessness that some found irresistible (count me out), a guy dresses in a diaper and masturbates on a series of plush toys. As Jack Haley Jr. would say, That's Entertainment!
