The fact that KAMA SUTRA '71 was released late in 1970 explains its contents: what would have been a normal storyline porno film has the semblance of documentary footage appended in order to pass for the sex education mantle that was permitted during the early days of public exhibition of XXX features.
There is travelogue footage of India, pompous narration about erotic art and ancient texts on the art of love. A presumably Indian couple make love, and this footage is spoon-fed during later reels as filler.
Film proper begins presumably back in La-La Land on the West Coast of our proud nation, where a group wanders through a mansion after playing a game of blind man's buff akin to spin the bottle. Main couple of Harry Anderson (soft porn vet John Dulaghan, a mainstay of fake docus) and his wife Grace peek through the doorways of various rooms, a lame loop- carrier technique so that they can voyeuristically watch folks making love in the various bedrooms and we, the paying customers can see what they see. Director credited as Raj Devi makes no effort to disguise this contrivance, so we're treated to tedious near-identical shots of Harry and/or Grace staring.
First porn couple features an ultra-busty actress whose technique is still arousing 44 years later, and like some of the other footage was reprised a year later in another junker titled WORLDS OF LOVE. Elsewhere the young John Holmes appears with 2 girls in a troilism scene ogled by our married protagonists.
Back home we witness their unhappy marriage, as the film unsteadily segues into a routine porno soap opera. Grace cheats on Harry with a young stud named Joe, while Harry''s off cheating with his blonde secretary Susie. Turns out Susie is married to Joe. Later the foursome meet up at an unsettling dinner where the audience enjoys knowing more than Harry does about their actual relationships. A contrived happy ending occurs after we see the Indian girl's big dark nipples for one last time. Naturally the end title reads "The Beginning".
Along the way we saw Harry wandering the streets past adult cinemas, one conveniently showing Alex de Renzy's PORNOGRAPHY IN DENMARK, a ground-breaking documentary released in Spring 1970, upon whose coattails KAMA SUTRA '71 was obviously hoping to ride.
