The video companies that trade in porn are generally incompetent, but Gourmet Video, distributors of TEENAGE DESIRE, takes the cake. Here is Seka in her very first and a truly fabulous starring role, and they market the beast without even mentioning her, instead advertising Kristine Heller, John Seeman and Paul Thomas, NONE of whom appear in the picture. How dumb can you get?
Back in the day Seka was not my favorite or in my Tops list -she always struck me as too pretty, too perfect: manufactured. And her acting was suspect. But here, 33 years after the fact, I was bowled over to see a young Seka, with conventional blonde rather than platinum blonde hair, and speaking with an easy-going Southern drawl, turn in a captivating performance in what is basically an all-sexer.
Filmmaker Rik Taziner, who I was prepared to write off after his ego-tripping clunker of a Western titled WINTER OF 1849, did a fabulous job with TEENAGE, which oddly enough marks the final film of his career. I'm willing to give his other oddball movies a look.
Seka co-stars with Ken Yontz as a married couple, introduced checking out via binoculars folks hanging out on the nearby beach. Seka soon tires of this voyeurism and begins servicing hubby while confidentially relating (in voice-over) sexy stories and anecdotes.
Normally this vignette structure, with the inevitable re-use of loop material (it's a license to steal), is a downer, but the sprightly paced TEENAGE DESIRE uses it to maximize the variety of sex on-screen. The hour-long film literally flew by for me, the opposite reaction I usually have to the generally interminable filler that constitutes cheapie porn.
The vignettes Seka narrates include: (1) Threesome involving a girl dressed like an Indian maid and another even younger girl in (and out of) a cowgirl outfit, using tomahawk and six guns as decorative props. Ming Jade and Angel Ducharme both are arresting in this very brief loop, accompanied appropriately by "I Shot the Sheriff" on the soundtrack; (2) A Black girl Seka knew back in school has a mixed-combo threesome, taking both dicks in her mouth at once, one of the '70s leading porn fads, and then executing a double penetration finale; (3) an old blonde MILF has sex on a boat (below decks -looks like a kitchen set, however) as a Chick Corea '70s fusion track plays; (4) Seka tells hubby about the lazy, incompetent carpenters working on the house, and we see instead the two guys, including Mike Ranger going three-way with her in the film's centerpiece, replete with a comical twist ending; (5) Scene-stealer Tracy Walton as the couple's cute blonde babysitter, who masturbates while they're away to her picture of John Travolta, only to be summarily seduced by both Seka and Yontz for a climactic three-way.
Add to this mix of new and old vignettes some really hot & heavy sex scenes by Ken & Seka, including a memorable money shot from Yontz, and you have a thoroughly arousing porn film. There's nothing profound and it's all unpretentious fun, but the sotte voce, mainly whispered sexy femme voice-over narration is a nearly-perfect adjunct to the sexy footage on screen.
