One of the better '70s porn movies
12 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

Although the plotline is a little threadbare - bored housewife goes on pubic rampage to relieve her erotic itch - the sex scenes in this movie make it a cut above the usual. The lead, Dominique St. Pierre, has a different "look" than most porn starlets, and there's a great, sensuous girl-girl scene that is very up-close and personal. Hard to find, but worth it.
