One heckuva robot
24 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is one very good reason for watching this distaff version of "Frankenstein": our protagonist, a wheelchair-bound scientist (Sadler) has sex with a comely android creation (Shinas). Shinas is absolutely gorgeous, and fulfills an anatomically correct living doll in the closet fantasy all hetero males share. And unlike "Jeannie" and "My Living Doll," this stunner gets completely nekkid before doing the dirty deed with her master. Nothing new plot wise here, but it is definitely entertaining for an adult male audience. This OL episode, like so many others, contains female nudity (using the most stunning looking women imaginable) and soft core sex scenes -- which certainly also must have entertained young boys everywhere. Highly recommended for the sensuality, even when you know where the plot will end up.
