For Bad Classic Porn Enthusiasts
2 January 2005 | by (West Babylon, New York) – See all my reviews

Having seen the early-80's Playboy Channel's R-rated version of "Public Affairs" through the scrambled broadcast made for non-paying viewers, I had to recapture what I missed and was deprived of by getting the original version, mainly the first two sex scenes.

The film is about Congressman Nicholas Stern's run for Senate. His campaign, financed by Fritz von Holenwohl via his wife/Nick's ex-fiancé Marybeth Butterfingers, involves fighting pornography and prostitution. Using his speech-recording aide Jodee for sexual favors and Sternmobile driver Tommy Corona as a semi-gopher, Stern is backing new legislation allowing foreigners to vote within New York State, the scandal of which news reporter Elvira Lawrence is trying to bring to light. When Nick's upcoming engagement is mentioned by Fritz during an orgy to appease a shiek for financial support, Jodee, and soon Tommy and Elvira, work in their own way to let Stern fail in his campaign. Tommy and Elvira have a torrid affair threatened by Tommy's loyalty to Stern and Elvira's search for the truth. Marybeth decides after a long thought of her past relationship with Stern to rekindle her sex life with Stern.

Bedding and BS recur throughout the movie, even with the attempt to sound more legitimate.
