Storyline

A modern advanced film about sexual education an behaviour based on the clinical research made by famous American and Swedish doctors. The film centres around a panel; Inge and Sten Hegeler, Maj-Brith Bergstroem-Walan and Sture Cullhed, all well known, reputable experts, who have devoted their scientific studies to the various fields of sexual life. The film deals with all kinds of problems connected with the sexual relationship of people. Whilst every question is discussed by the panel., the film illustrates; the difference between male and female sexual organs and their functions, positions, and authentic coition whereby a split screen system is used enabling us to see the various reactions in different parts of the body. In connection with this as well as in other parts of the film, diagrams and animations are used to simplify the understanding of the complicated reactions which occur when a person is under sexual stimulus. The panel also discusses the role of sex in society, the ... Written by Stefan Nylen <red@defekt.cinemacabre.se>

the UK censors finally allow me to see infamous little sex education movie

So, after all these years, the UK censors finally allow me to see infamous little sex education movie. Acquiring this within the Christine Lindberg box set ( and no she is not in it!) I'd thought I might pop it in the player and get a flavour or fast forward through the anticipated 50 minutes or so running time. But no, this runs almost 100 minutes and isn't at all bad. Hardly dated either, except the sex educators are all about 50 whereas they somehow would all be more like 20 if this were made today. Sound information and advice, saucy clips and if most of the performers do look a bit frightful, they still do well enough and the ghastly look of some may be due to deterioration of the film stock. Just towards the end the interviews and examination for various contraceptive devices seemed to go on a bit but otherwise, I found this well put together and surprisingly enjoyable. Fetishes were mentioned but not shown and there was no mention of homosexuality.
