The Sensually Liberated Female and He and She are a pair of films gear towards educating the general public about sex related topics. Content wise, these films are reminiscent of Mondo cinema and The School Girl Report films. Both films were directed by Matt Cimber whose other notable films include, The Candy Tangerine Man, The Witch Who Came from the Sea and Butterfly.
The main difference between these two films subject matter wise is that The Sensually Liberated Female focuses solely on the female sexuality. Where He and She makes it an all gender affair as it shifts to the focus towards couples. Also when it comes to the tone of each of these films they are like night and day. With He and She taking on a more psychological tone while The Sensually Liberated Female is a more laid back affair.
Both films feature an ample amount of nudity, women pleasure themselves and being pleasured by others, a little bit of fellatio and hardcore sex. And when it comes to moments that verge into hardcore adult cinema. These moments are handle surprisingly were and hold up better than most adult cinema from this era. And at just over sixty minutes each things move along briskly as both of these films never overstay their welcome.
Both films are presented in their intended 1.33:1 aspect ratios. The sources used for each transfer is in very good shape as colors look nicely saturated and details look sharp. Also there are no issues with Edge enhancement or compression.
Each film comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital mono English. There are no issues with back noise or distortion and everything sounds balance.
