Storyline

Linda, frustrated that her hugely energetic sex life leaves her unsatisfied, seeks medical help. The doctor informs her that the reason for her problem is that her clitoris is mistakenly located at the back of her throat - but there is a very simple remedy, which the doctor, and various other men, proceed to demonstrate.

Alternate Versions

The 2003 UK DVD by Arrow Productions has been edited. Even though the back cover says 'contains strong real sex', all hardcore scenes are re-framed, which is why it runs much longer than the 2000 51 minute version. Most versions open with the credits whilst Linda Lovelace is driving her car, but this version has a pre-credit sequence of a message from Vanguard Films about Sigmund Freud, and shows Linda walking by the riverbank before getting into her car. Some of the music has also been changed, for example, the usual 'Driving with Linda' opening theme and 'Bubbles' have both been replaced by rock instrumentals. See more »

Porn – comedy – cult – classic!
22 June 2005 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Just pick a category…ANY category will do, actually, because "Deep Throat" fits in all of them. It's pure porn, naturally, but also a hard-to-obtain milestone with a cult history like no other movie could ever present. "Deep Throat" made the porn-industry what it is today: a mainstream and very profitable business in which actors and directors get respect and sympathy. And, instead of simply editing a whole lot of boring hardcore sequences together, the makers of this film wanted to tell a story (although a very silly one) with a great sense of humor! Linda Lovelace stars as a poor young woman who can't enjoy physical love no matter what she tries… Along with her doctor (the utterly cool Harry Reems) she discovers that her clitoris is wrongfully placed at the back-end of her throat! The doctor, as well as multiple other volunteers, gladly teaches her a way by which she can enjoy sex after all. This premise alone already is quite comical but humorist value of "Deep Throat" is increased by the playful performances (Reems is having the time of his life), the brilliant music (wait until you hear the title song!) and the implementation of typical but non-pornographic footage that illustrates what kind of pleasure the characters are going through (for example, shots from a rocket-launch when the men are climaxing…). Funny stuff…and Lovelace still looks better than most female porn stars today!
