This initially appears to be simply a dumb Italian sex comedy about a young woman working as a concierge/maid in an apartment building and being accosted by various sex-minded weirdo tenants. It's interesting though for a couple of reasons. First, it was directed by talented Argento protegee Luigi Cozzi, who also directed the superb giallo "The Killer Must Strike Again" the same year. While this is certainly not Cozzi's best work, it is surprisingly well-filmed for a sex comedy (even if it does contain some stereotypical fast motion sub-Benny Hill type antics). It also features three of the most sumptuous women from Italian exploitation films of the period--Erica "The Devil's Nightmare" Blanc, Daniela "Four Times that Night" Giordano, and the lead, American Irene Miracle (who is most famous for the breast-against-the-glass prison scene in "Midnight Express",later parodied by Jim Carrey in the ONLY funny scene in "The Cable Guy"). Blanc plays a lesbian, Giordano plays a hippie, and they both are among the MANY people who try to seduce "the nude porter" Miracle.
I don't know if it's very funny--the dubbed soundtrack is in Italian and I don't know WHAT language the actors were actually speaking (I've narrowed it down to either Esperanto or Pig Latin). There's no violence and only one brief sex scene (although a Blanc-Miracle lesbian scene might be MIA from the print I saw). But one thing's for sure--it's not called "The Nude Porter" for nothing.
