Originally distributed on VHS with scratch-and-sniff Odorama-cards, so viewers could smell what they saw on screen. See more »
Great cast in poor video
This Jenna Jameson hit was credited in IMDb to Ben Dover aka Steve Perry, the veteran British pornographer and comical sex performer. That is ridiculous and I fixed the database error, as this is strictly assembly line porn from the VHS era, with the talented Jim Enright credited as producer and editor but not director.
It starts off with the notice of being "in Smell-o-Vision", and a number appears at the beginning of each sex scene. I take this to mean it was released with a gimmick familiar from decades ago when a scratch & sniff card was issued to theater patrons to generate a different smell for different scenes. The original Smell-o-Vision used theatrically by Liz Taylor's then-husband Mike Todd was geared to fragrances blown by fans into the theater at various moments, an impractical system that failed to catch on.
Watching a DVD reissue two decades later the gimmick is irrelevant, though the story dwells on Jon Dough's sexual problems due to his acute sense of smell. Film kicks off with him taking his sports car in for repairs and ogling Mark Davis humping a female mechanic played by Shayla LaVeaux. Jon later reports the voyeuristic event to his friend Jenna Jameson, noting that the overwhelming odor of gas and oil prevented him from being aroused by the sight of the sexy Shayla in action.
Jenna refers him to an aromatherapist for treatment, and her co-star Juli Ashton, also a big star at the time (featured constantly on Playboy TV), and Juli diagnoses his problem and gives him advice, and later treatment.
Produced by AVN Publications (I wonder if the corrupt industry award-giver pondered conflicts of interest when it came time to Nominations and Awards for the year), the show devolves into the corny format of ancient porn, dating back to the soft-core '60s. Dough keeps seeing folks making love, and script emphasizes various fetishes akin to his odor issues. For example, Juli is entranced with leather, cuing a leather & latex fetish three-way in which she's d.p.'d by her two assistants Tony Tedeschi and T.T. Boy in slave boy garb.
Later Juli treats Jon to an early version of Virtual Reality, giving him mitts to wear and fancy dark glasses as he witnesses Tom Byron's lemon fetish (taste) inflicted on busty Marilyn Star, the least-known member of a starry cast. That's poorly cross-cut with Juli's sex scene, getting off on footsie with Jon's leather loafer, the dumb gag of it appearing all shiny at the end of her rubbing after the cum shots conclude the scene.
Jenna is fine in a soft-core shower scene and puts out in er two sex scene with Vince Vouyer and inevitably Dough. Dough's acting is extremely poor, overdoing his outbursts in search of laughs.
The Brit team of Nici Sterling and Wilde Oscar are arousing in an outdoor sex scene watched by Jon, while Kylie Ireland and Felecia have a lesbian threesome with Jenna that is a birthday present for Vince and becomes group sex with him being the beneficiary.
