Synopsis: A magical amulet grants those who wear it the ultimate sexual experience.
Sensual Encounters of Every Kind was co-written and directed by Richard Kanter (Wild Riders). And though this film’s title is a clear sexualisation of a very successful Hollywood movie. Fortunately, this is where all similarities end between these two films.
This films plot consists of five scenes (four sex scenes) and each one of these scenes present a scenario where someone who has come into possession of said amulet has a sexual encounter. The first of these scenes revolves an affluent woman who turns on a trio of landscapers that were working on her property. The second story is a family affair where a brother and sister seduce their French teacher. The third story is set in the political realm and in this scene an aspiring politician is caught having an affair with his secretary. In the fourth sex scenes two young ladies at a gym get some TLC from their coach. And in the four and final scene a young couple make out in the backseat of their car. This scene then flashes forward to their future and they are still together, albeit more wealthy. This is the only scene that does not feature any hardcore action!
Out of the four sex scenes the opening scene with Lesllie Bovee (Champagne for Breakfast) is the one that delivers the most heat. And though some may be turned off by her initial reluctance to the three landscapers’ sexual advances. Once the scene gets going there is no denying her ecstasy. Another standout moment is the dour scene at the gym. Later on during this scene the two girls and the coach continue their sexual romp into steam room. The weakest of these four scenes is the third scene with the politician and his secretary.
Performance wise, the cast are more than adequate in their respective roles. With this film’s standout performance coming from Lesllie Bovee (Sex World). Another standout performance is Georgina Spelvin (The Devil in Miss Jones) in the role of French teacher who is seduced by two siblings. Other notable cast members include, Serena (Dracula Sucks), John Leslie (Dixie Ray Hollywood Star) and Richard Pacheco. Overall Sensual Encounters of Every Kind is a well-made film that fans of adult cinema’s golden age should thoroughly enjoy.
