A group of horny female prison escapees holes up in a remote farmhouse. Desperate for a man, they call up an old associate, gigolo for hire Tony (Adam Clyde). The ringleader, Big Shim (Marni Castle) realizes that they could be sitting on a goldmine when they learn that Tony is the "kept man" of a rich businesswoman, Brenda McClain (also played by Castle). So they hold him hostage for $100,000. This prompts Brenda to hire private eye Sweety East (Monique Duval) to deliver the cash. Meanwhile, Big Shims' main squeeze Baby (Eve Laurie) incurs her wrath by escaping with Tony.
I was hoping that this sexploitation feature would be a little more fun than it was. It's certainly got its fair share of sex and titillation, but there's quite a bit of padding. There's not a lot of action, but the characters help to make things passable. Castle is memorable as Big Shim, sporting a pretty amusing wardrobe including a cone-shaped bra. There's a hysterical level of kink to the proceedings, because at one point Big Shim and friends start dressing Tony up in womens' clothing. They even whip him.
The filmmaking is genuinely crude and the story thin, but that will merely add to the experience for devotees of the sexploitation genre. The ladies show off the goods with enough regularity, and even Clyde gets into the act by exposing his backside. The cinematography by Harold Williams is rather stark, the direction by (an uncredited) Harry Wuest adequate, and the stock music used is amusing jazzy stuff.
Worth seeing for Ms. Castle, Ms. Duval, and the perky music lover "Twig".
Six out of 10.
