Pulsating Flesh: A man with the most unusual talent of impregnating any women who has sex with him is invited to a talk show to recount his sexual escapades.
When it comes to quirky premises this is not the first time around for Carlos Tobalina who have given us such head scratchers like Come Under my Spell and Jungle Blue. The narrative for this film which is essentially the same format one would follow when compiling a best of scenes collection. All but one scene feature Ray Welles (under the name Ray Hardin) in the role Peter Longfellow, the man with the special talent. The only scene that takes place outside of Peter’s memories is a scene where two ladies are watching him on television and gets aroused.
Though the sex scenes have that by the numbers vibe to them. There are two scenes which standout the most. Up first is a scene where Peter has been hired by a husband and wife to get the wife pregnant. Unknown to them outside is the room they are in is the milkman who is watching their every move. As this scene progresses the milkman who is portrayed by the legendary Harry Reems (Deep Throat) gets bored stroking his cock and invites himself to join in on their debauchery. The other stand out moment and perhaps the scene with the most heat is the scene where the talk show host portrayed by Tamara Longley asks Peter to demonstrate on her during a commercial break.
Super Sex: Needing to getaway for a brief vacation Dr. Rosenberg enlists the help of Dr. Stein, who immediately implements his unique techniques for curing sexual problems.
The plot revolves around two doctors with conflicting views when it comes to curing sexual problems. The more established older doctor who follows tradition and the much younger doctor who believes that the best way to find a cure is to take a hands on approach. And though most of the patients are very receptive to having sex with these two doctors. There are few where hypnosis is required to unlock their inner sensuality.
When it comes to the sex scene they are best described as adequate. With the only sex scene leaving any lasting impression being a scene where a woman who is unsatisfied with her body and wants to swap souls with her friend. This scene features Vanessa D’Oro in the role of the woman who wants to swap souls with her friend and Nina Hartley in the role of her friend. Surprisingly this scene does a very good job showing the swapping of their souls.
