This appears to be a plea for understanding towards sexual deviants.
1 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

"The Lonely Sex" is a very strange sort of exploitation film. First, unlike most exploitation films of the 30s, 40s and 50s, this one actually has some nudity--and gratuitous nudity at that. Second, the film is about sexual deviants and appears to be a film that encourages the audience to try to empathize with these folks! However, the film is made so poorly and features so much lousy acting and dialog that you can't help but laugh at the film. It's about two guys--one a creepy guy who likes to peep in windows and make inappropriate advances towards his landlord's daughter and the other is a social misfit who kills a woman and then kidnaps the landlord's daughter! This second one is awfully pathetic and you do feel for the guy a bit...but he DOES murder a lady and I don't know how you can excuse that. Overall, the film is a confusing mess of a film that doesn't exactly seem to know what its message should be. Is this a warning to parents? Is this a plea for understanding? Is this just a badly written film? All I know is that the film was, at times, interesting but mostly it was just a forgettable cheap mess...with boobies.
