The 80's were the golden age of adult films, where shaving, tattoos and piercings had not come into vogue, and they actually attempted to have a real script and the adult film performers delved into real acting.
The story is about William Burke, powerful, successful and rich, but his secret is that he doesn't like sex, but prefers to spy on others, hence the title "Peeping Tom". Its actually quite a funny movie at times and Burke (Jerry Butler) does a fairly good job, despite his rather odd hairdo which really isn't something you would see on an executive, even back then. His friend Sy Norman (Nick Random) looks more the business executive part, right down to the polyester suit and comb-over. Buck Adams is funny as the rather dimwitted "cool" guy in the warehouse that seems to only be interested in one thing, while Nina Hartley keeps chattering away.
The sex scenes integrate well within the movie, being part of Burke's peeping fantasies and spying interludes.
In the end he finally gets caught, and gets put in a psychiatric hospital for some R&R. Burke makes a rant/admission in the hospital scene thats unexpectedly hilarious. In the end he's "cured" of his peeping in the usual manner how porn movies solve problems.
His analyst also happens to be his invisible friend who berates his perversions during the fantasy sequences.
This classic movie has some familiar stars of the time, such as Kristara Barrington, Nina Hartley, Sheri St. Clair and a cameo by Honey Wilder, a former star from the 70's.
