Review, Plot summary, and comments on Teenage Prostitution Racket
12 March 2001 | by lordfaramir82See all my reviews

This movie is very rare and so this review is based on a multi-generation bootleg copy which I obtained from a site that deals in rare horror/sleaze films. When watching this I wasnt fully awake so I dont remember the all character names or the story after the first 30 minutes or so. any vague discriptions or fuzzyness on the story are not due to bad film making but from my lack of devoting the attention this film deserves. Velvet busts a girls cherry and she falls for him. Velvet proposes then BSes her and says he has to go home for 3 months because his father is sick and poor and stuff. He then hints that he wouldnt have to leave if she would do something but he kinda brushes it off like she wouldnt want to. She asks what and he says she could whore herself, but not so straight forward. Well she decided to and she gets stuck in the world of prostitution. About here I lost track of the characters names and most of the story because of my sleepiness but still found the movie quite entertaining. There are many whores through out the movie who age from 13-18 or so and I swear that the actresses couldnt be a day over 19, theres even one girl who still hasnt grown much pit hair. I wouldnt be suprised if some were underage. Well the first half of the movie has a fair amout of tits and bush but the second half has some hardcore scenes. A bj and penetration shots. Theres also lesbian strap on, we dont see actual penetration but it sure as hell isnt simulated. Theres also a lesbian rug munching scene but you cant see much due to all the hair. Keep in mind this is a 70's italian movie. All the girls are au natural. No shaving or even trimming. That goes for poon as well as pits. As for the video quality i would say its between good and fair. Its slightly fuzzy with a little crackling in the audio. There are 3 or so parts where the whole screen gets scrambled but it doesnt last to long so you dont miss anything important to the story. There is also apparently a scene which is cut short but what can you expect for such a rare film. That also does not interupt the story. It is Italian dubbed to English with greek, russian, or some balkans language subtitles that are in some parts way out of sync. I dont know which language the subtitles are but they look somewhat like what i listed. The dubbing decent, not like The Beyond is but it doesnt sound monotone like some shmucks reading a script. The voice pitches to change and you can tell emotion. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes 60s or 70s softcore porn and sleaze/sexploitation fans and anyone who likes their girls YOUNG. Being quite young myself and having more than my fair share of girls back in highschool, I can assure you these girls are truly young and not just wearing lots of makeup. If your looking for porno this isnt it. While there are a few hardcore scenes they dont make up the bulk of the movie. Ratings on a 1-10 scale 1 being impossible to understand or see and 10 being flawless Acting, Story, Fluidity: 8 Audio quality: 4 Video quality: 4 T&A: 7
