Storyline

Ulla, a prostitute is hired by the despicable Mudy, mother of the shy and mentally disturbed 20-year-old Tony with a tendency toward pyromania. She is invited on a sea cruise where she is meant to "take" his virginity. Also invited on the cruise are the provocative Paula and her husband Aldo, who are constantly striving to win the favor of a wealthy woman in hope of obtaining an oil concession. Despite her efforts, Ulla has no effect on the young man until the yacht stops on a Mediterranean island inhabited only by a goat herder and his wife, Beba. Tony is attracted to her, but little by little his mental disorders arise, and the story ends in tragedy. Written by lament

Vastly entertaining and rather sleazy Italian thriller.
20 February 2006 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A sexy vixen Edwige Fenech stars as a prostitute hired by the overbearing,vaguely incestuous mother of a shy,mentally-retarded 20-year old named Tony. Fenech is meant to claim Tony's virginity on a sea cruise,also attended by sexy Paula and her slimy husband Aldo,who incessantly try to curry the wealthy mother's favor.Ewa Aulin shows up as an island girl who dies when the dull-witted Tony accidentally strangles her,leading her husband to board the ship,where he is quickly dispatched by the rifle-toting Neri."Top Sensation" is a perfect example of Eurotrash cinema.There is plenty of sleaze and fantastic lesbian sequence between Edwige Fenech,Rosalba Neri and Ewa Aulin.The film is cheaply made,but highly entertaining.Give it a look.My rating:9 out of 10.
