Starved for sex
14 May 2009 | by plurality-1See all my reviews

I saw this, at least an exploitation film with this title, around 1960, close to when I saw Lash of the Penitentes, of no relation except both were knocking around in the days before the porno dam busted. When the baby started birthing (or is it the mother who births?) there was a cut, whether a splice or an editor's cut I cannot say, but the viewership, which was mostly interested in the medical aspects, of course, was robbed of an unencumbered shot of private parts. Anybody who tells you these were the "good old days" wasn't there, or has suffered memory loss. The film was even less sexy than the chopped up burlesque films that were also making the circuit, if you can believe that. Wonder whatever happened to that kid?
