Maybe if one was really on LSD while watching this one?, 27 June 2013
Author: Zbigniew_Krycsiwiki from United States

In this boring 1960s exploitation/ education flick, a lesbian invites two girls to an LSD party by the pool, which results in everybody getting stoned and getting laid.

Flick rails against LSD use and hedonistic sex, but then exploits it as much as possible: most of the girls were a bit heavy and homely during black-and-white (sober) portions of film, but after LSD was taken, film switches to bright, vibrant, vivid colour, and they become hot nymphs, banging guys brains out, the LSD adding a tiny little thrill to their dull grey lives. Until the very end, when the leading lady ends up in a padded cell, in a straightjacket! Film switches to colour during Alice's trip; the black-and-white scenes look like bad home movies of the day, while the colour scenes look like generic '60s LSD-inspired filming of nothing in particular.

No credited cast or crew, was this an attempt to give the film a realistic feel, trying to make the viewer forget that they were watching a movie? Or were they all just too embarrassed to have their names associated with this thing?

Ultimately, the word 'END' appears drawn on a female caricature's ass.
