Old Tobias hires the psychologist Doctor Varlay to interview people about their desires. While flashbacks are shown of Young Tobias and Lilly, Doctor Varlay meets her interviewees. Laura reminisces about a joint meeting with her two boyfriends. Stand-up comedian John recalls dreaming of talking and touching a mannequin girl so much that she momentarily came to life. Next up, retired football player Fred recalls a random sex encounter, prompting the buxom doctor to fantasize of pleasuring him. Lastly, Kim fantasizes about her female roommate, prompting Doctor Varlay to imagine the same scenario with her assistant Carol. Kim also recalls a The Crying Game (1992) experience with a transsexual. Doctor Varlay then finds her real desire in Old Tobias' assistant, Carlos. Carol does the same with Fred. At Old Tobias' deathbed, a Lilly hallucination reveals she left him because he desired money over her. Written by Anonymous

Not Kay Parker's best.
16 August 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Kay Parker seems to aspire to classiness from time to time in her adult flicks, and I guess this is one of those times, but 'Desire' is not an outstanding production from the standpoint of either the story or the sex. In this film, William Margold (thankfully in a non-sex role) plays an old man haunted by the memory of his wife (Tamara Longley) leaving him many years ago. When he asked her why, she simply told him, "Desire." Now he's brought in Kay as some kind of expert to help determine just what the "desire" spoken of really is. She interviews various persons for their take on the concept, and their ideas are illustrated onscreen. The sex is mostly OK, but the philosophizing is none too profound.

Ron Jeremy is responsible for some of the best action here. I know he's gotten way too fat over the years and his motormouth is a turnoff to many. But he was slimmer when this movie was shot and even if you don't like his personality, he does cut it as a performer. He starts out the scene with a newly-obtained "love doll" which his fantasy rapidly turns into a live woman, played by Misty Dawn. She's not required to deliver any more dialog than the doll would, but Ron of course does enough talking for both.

Parker's scenes run from fair to middlin', a bit of a disappointment. But even second-rate Kay is more interesting than a lot of other actresses, and some of her co-stars seem quite interested. Longley and Mai Lin acquit themselves pretty well. Not the worst production you'll ever see, to be sure, but far from the best.
