Storyline

Jurgen Noetafreud is a professor of the psyche of human sexuality, who introduces 10 short segments from his case studies of the most common female sexual fantasies. In "Beauty Parlour", Abby finds the experience of a salon haircut and manicure a very sensual experience. In "Card Game", Barbara's husband uses her as bargaining chips to his friends during a evening round of poker. In "Wearing the Pants", Gabrielle is a lonely housewife who dreams up having her way with a neighbor who steals her underwear. In "Nightmare Alley", Felicity has an encounter with a boxer/rapist who turns on her desires she never knew existed in her. In "The Girls", Francine develops an attraction to a large-breasted woman during a daily stay in a steam room. In "Fruit Salad", Imogene has fantasies involving a 'well-endowed' man in the form of the sea god Neptune during a fruit basket binge. In "Mother's Darling" Belle is a middle-aged woman who welcomes home her son from war in her own way. In "Black Velvet"... Written by lament

Alternate Versions

When the film was first submitted for a UK cinema certificate in 1977 it was rejected by the BBFC, and a resubmission the following year resulted in heavy cuts of around 20 minutes. The 2010 Nucleus DVD suffered lesser cuts though still fairly heavy ones, with 8 mins being removed from the rape scene in the boxing ring ("Nightmare Alley") and all dialogue referring to the pleasures of incest (in "Mothers Darling").

not to be confused with the horror classic, though both have balls in them
10 June 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Directed by Richard Franklin (whom would go onto better things with "Psycho 2" and "Roadgames"), comes this tawdry number wherein Professor Jurgen Notafreud (John Bluthal from Dark City, and the Fifth Element) reveals the 'top ten womens' fantasies' in this porn mockumenty. The fantasies include, a girl lusting for her hairdresser, wife swapping at a strip poker game, strap-on, rape, sex with John Holmes, incest, prostitution, school play and religious sacrilege. This is a VERY mixed back. The doctor is supremely unfunny and cringe-inducing, some of the 'fantasies' are great, but some are awful. All of them are hard soft-core by the way. Plus you get some extremely top heavy women and of course John Holmes, that in itself is worthy enough to give this one at least a rent. It was followed by a severely lacking sequel to quickly cash-in on this film's success.

My Grade: C-

DVD Extras: Commentary by Antony Ginnane (one of the most interesting and informative ones I've heard); almost 23 minute retrospective featurette 'Fantasm Penetrated'; and theatrical trailer

Eye Candy: more full frontal and ass than you can shake a stick at (in one viewing at least) Serena, Shayne, Maria Aronoff, Rene Bond, Roxanne Brewer, Wendy Cavanaugh, Uschi Digard, Gretchen Gayle, Dee Dee Levitt, Maria Lutra, Helen O'Connell, Candy Samples, and Maria Welton all bare all; plus some girls I don't know show a lot as well

For the Ladies: a few balls and peni (plural of penis)
