Primitive early porn feature, very poorly made
17 August 2011 | by lor_See all my reviews

It's difficult to judge ELECTROSEX by current standards, since it dates from the earliest days of feature-length, non-documentary porn films. What it most closely resembles is a soundie stag loop, stretched to hour-long running time.

Like any high-concept stag movie, premise is simple: a guy has invented lifelike female sex robots and has invited his pal Jim over to test them. What ensues is an orgy and that's the entire movie.

The guys ad lib typically sexist remarks and nothing much happens other than sex. The gals are turned on (not in the punning sense, but in the on/off switch sense) by touching their nipples and the "I could see it coming a mile away" final "horrific" twist is that the Off switch supposedly located behind their ear lobes doesn't work, leaving our hapless heroes to be humped to death (cue the screams and fake blood makeup effects on their crotches).

As lucky Jim who gets to sample the trio of Alpha, Delta and Gamma robots (one infers that Beta was a dud, discarded by the inventor during Beta-testing), Tommy Toole was an unsung sort-of-superstar of the earliest porn, having carried the classic TOMATOES with a very impressive performance.

His big dick is on display here, but the filmmaking technique credited to "Mike Henderson" is so primitive that most of the footage plays softcore not by design but by default. A lengthy fellatio sequence by loops star Cheri Rostand on Toole's tool is obscured from the camera by her long hair. What passes for a script contains such bon mots as Rostand announcing "I know over 400 ways to make you come" to Toole.

The inventor is a nondescript guy who clearly had no future in porn, or in any other of the arts. Besides Rostand there is a pretty brunette and tall-tall blonde Linda Wroom with extremely bad teeth (but great breasts) filling out the cast.

Primitivism is reflected in the real-time, aloof camera-work, which eschews closeups, as if D.W. Griffith had never popularized them 60 years earlier. It would take Howard Ziehm's breakthrough MONA to establish in feature films the textbook of explicit shots which still prevail over 40 years later. ELECTROSEX has no musical score, another cinematic invention apparently beyond the scope of Mike Henderson's knowledge of the medium, and this causes the wall-to-wall sex action to get mighty tedious.

Only real humor or diversion comes directly from the cheapness of the enterprise. Though Toole as Jim questions the radically different shapes of the robot girls (Wroom sticks out like a sore thumb), he doesn't bat an eye at Rostand the robot wearing a wrist-watch, Wroom's bad teeth, or the rather pointless tan lines.

Something Weird has preserved this on DVD-R, so sci-fi completists, start your engines!
