So much bush, you'd think you were in a jungle., 2 November 2008
Author: lastliberal from United States

This video nastie was banned in Britain and never released.

No, it wasn't for Jesus Franco's propensity for plenty of full frontal nudity, including his own wife, Lina Romay. After all, they have made over 100 films together, and I am sure moviegoers know her as well as he does.

No, it was the application of the old "Tucker Telephone." I don't know if Franco got the idea from the Tucker prison farm in Arkansas, or from Generalissimo Franco, but the application of electrical wires to his wife's vagina and the electrical current was too much for the Brits.

Yes, there is a poorly done lesbian scene (only one), and the women in prison all slept naked, but that gets to be a bore after a while. Mostly people just smoked and talked. Pretty boring.
