Crudely made early fetish effort from Damiano
24 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

I watched the SWV reissue of this film (on a twofer) without knowing it was the work of porn great Gerard Damiano, and it offers very little of interest to fans of his work.

Threadbare plot of a magic ring allowing the heroine to conjure up partners for her sexual fantasies is a mere excuse for explicit sex footage. Key fetishes highlighted (and recurring) here are: toe sucking; light bondage; anus-fingering; and masturbating with a whip handle. A gratuitous scene of the heroine choking a girl to death with her whip (?!) is included as something of a diversion. IMDb credits Damiano himself as playing the beggar-in-blackface in the film's intro scene, but I did not recognize him; perhaps Larry Hunter listed as "hobo" is the Al Jolson wannabe in question.

Cast, including some famous porn talent, goes through the motions in various combinations. As in other early hardcore efforts, the key "money" shots are few & far between, whereas later they would become the raison d'etre for rounding out a XXX porn effort.

Shot silent with some minimal post-synch dialog, film is badly made. Odd use at the opening of a piano score for silent-era pathos is ridiculous.
