“The ‘white coater’ sub-genre was the most popular trend in early erotic features. These ostensibly educational films skirted censorship laws and as such could present the most explicit scenes with minimal legal concern. However, many enterprising filmmakers took the opportunity to flex their artistic muscles and created works, such as these, which were as visually striking as they were titillating.” – Synopsis provided by the Distributor

Sessions of Love Therapy: A psychologist helps four couples with their sexual problems.

The narrative for Sessions of Love Therapy follows a conventional structure. With each sex scene being setup by dialog.

Though the sex scenes go well beyond the realm of soft-core. The sex scenes are best described as serviceable and no one scene standout from the other scenes.

Sessions of Love Therapy was directed by John Flanders, whose other credits as a director are limited to one other film, The Undergraduate.

Notable cast members include, Rene Bond (Refinements in Love, Fugitive Girls), Sandy Dempsey (Touch Me) and Ric Lutze (Bust Out).

101 Acts of Love: A Doctor uses sexual demonstrations to help her patients overcome their own sexual issues.

There is a free flow vibe to this film’s narrative. With the majority of this film’s dialog moments at the front end of the film. There is also narration throughout the film that provides further information about what is happening onscreen.

For a film of this vintage, this film’s sex scenes are more explicit, then the majority of adult films from this era. There is an inventiveness in regards to the various sexual positions and because of this, the sex scenes are this film’s strongest asset.

101 Acts of Love was directed by Eric Jeffrey Haims, whose limited filmography includes, Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio and A Clockwork Blue.

The DVD:

Sessions of Love Therapy and 101 Acts of Love are presented in their intended 1.33:1 aspect ratio. The transfers for these two films have been scanned and restored in 2k from 35mm negative elements.

The sources for both films are in very good shape and any print related debris is minimal. Colors and flesh tones look accurate, details look sharp and black levels fare well.

Each film comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital mono mix in English. Both audio mixes sound, clear and balanced.

Extras are limited to a trailer for Sessions of Love Therapy.

Overall another sold double feature release from Vinegar Syndrome.
