Seven segments related to one another only in that they all purport to be based on sections of the book by David Reuben. The segments range from "Do Aphrodisiacs Work?" in which a court jester gives an aphrodisiac to the Queen and is, in the end, beheaded to "What Happens During Ejaculation?" in which we watch "control central" during a successful seduction.Written by

In the "sodomy" segment, the character Stavros Milos hails from Armenia. Stavros Milos is a Greek name. See more »
For me, Norman Mailer has exactly that same sort of relevance - that affirmitive, negative duality that only Proust or Flaubert could achieve.
I don't know if we're gonna make it or not, doesn't look too good.

We're gonna make it.

After being banned in Ireland on March 20 1973, a cut version was passed in 1979 and theatrically released in 1980. This edited:
the scene in which a shepherd goes to see a doctor and tells him how he has fallen in love with a sheep. The line, "the greatest lay I ever had" was removed.
The bread intercourse scene was removed entirely.
Modern video releases are uncut with an 18 certificate. See more »
This is a very funny parody of pop sex-psychology literature
The film is entirely about sexual perversions, even though it is not technically erotic Allen has taken some of the most popular clinical treatments of sexual fetishes and has placed them into very unusual situations
Gene Wilder, for example, falls in love with a sheep; Woody Allen plays a medieval court jester who gets his lance stuck in his lady's chastity belt while the king is off fighting in the Crusades; a giant breast is released upon the countryside; an Italian couple can only find happiness in public sex; and we are taken into the inner labors of a male human body as it tries to seduce a woman in a car
Each individual scene is quite well done The tales are rapid filled with irony about the overly exaggerated importance of sex in our culture
