On the June 15, 2006 edition of Howard Stern's Sirius Satellite radio program, Takei revealed that the sex scenes were shot with body doubles and added to the film only after the producer was unable to secure distribution for the film as it was originally edited. Takei states he was unaware of the additions until years later, and laughingly added that he was "impressed" with the body double used for his character. See more »
It might surprise some avid Star Trek fans that George Takei (who played Hikaru Sulu) stared in a sexploitation flick that made the drive-in rounds back in the early 70s.
That film is "Josie's Castle" which was also released as "Teenage Divorcée" and "The Young Divorcees." As the story opens "Josie" is getting divorced from her boring husband so then she and a couple of also-divorced guys (including Takei) rent a condemned "castle" for cheap.
They immediately make it into a hippie pad complete with parties, group sex, and pot smoking, much to the concern of their nosy landlady.
The landlady eventually calls the cops who escort the groovy trio to jail for drug dealing.
Josie also gets jealous because she thinks Takei & her boyfriend are gay.
Does Takei appears nude with Josie & gang (or just almost nude)? I'll never tell. Just see it for yourself at a theater probably nowhere near anybody (LOL) or demand that it gets put on DVD soon.
I'll give it a 6-plus.
