The police raid a brothel and a prostitute (Lina Romay) escapes into the countryside. The woman, Celestine, ends up at a rich folks house where she ends up sleeping with two of the servants who then get her a job as a maid.
Jess Franco remakes his own 1978 film That Certain Taste and does it pretty much a direct scene for scene remake. As before, three couples are having sexual problems until a porn star (Lina Romay) shows up and teaches them a few lessons. The first film was a pure hardcore movie but this one here is a lot cleaner, ala softcore.

Lina Romay is full of energy and is the only reason to seek this one out.
