The Piranhas Mate During Lent-Adult content. A story about two women ( Mother, daughter) that mate with one man on a tropical Island
25 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was nine years old. If this film was an American film it would be an R rated film. Foreign films have more nudity and are very Erotic. Isela Vega was a very sensual woman in her day and a good actress, the story line is interesting with some very erotic sex scenes. For its time it was risqué, if you are a fan of Latin actresses and old films and are not bothered by technicalities such as lighting its a good film to watch. I decided to view it again as an adult I would compare it to the The Big Doll House with Pam Grier

Translation is wrong-The Piranhas Mate During lent. Not Female Troubles in the Tropic
