The product being reviewed contains hardcore features.

The Undergraduate: It appears that a 30 minute short taking place in a sex education classroom written by Ed Wood was then expanded by incorporating a [terrible] pre-existing hour long ‘sex education’ road show feature to pad it out to theatrical length. We’re shown it while the students are taking their final exam. Once that’s out of the way we get a lecture from the professor which includes his recommending Penthouse magazine to his coed class of students. He then wraps with a “don’t do drugs” speech and it’s over. Finally. At last. Sourced from a Betamax tape release.

Plus The Lost Films Of Suzanne Fields.

Ward Sex: The horrid one-liners thrown out during the theatrical trailer for Ward Sex is the best thing about it. The feature is just a run-of-the-mill all sex mash-up with no reason to exist except to procreate and amoebas can do that.

The Young Model: This one is essentially just an extended dirty joke, but it works, even given the shoddy production and that half the run time consists of extreme zoom shots on the action at hand. Suzanne Fields has a lot of charisma and that in concert with the twist ending make this one watchable once, but would anyone really want sloppy seconds?

Sex Spa: Last but not least, this one has a script, engaging characters, humorous dialog and is actually worth watching. It appears that they spoke their dialog ‘live’, but the soundtrack was all post-synched by the original cast, and they are having a good time doing it (sounds like a party). Better check your collection though, because footage was incorporated into The Best Of Everything (generally regarded as a Candy Samples feature). Even the best sex comedies are somewhat stupid, and this is no exception; did you know that an orgasm will burn 250 calories? Besides Suzanne Fields and Ric Lutz we have the short, busty, and energetic Amy Bellamy (Zodiac Rapist). It’s fun and energetic and it’s the saving grace of this volume in the series.

Note: The Best Of Everything was released by Something Weird Video as DRAGON ART THEATRE DOUBLE FEATURE VOL 046. The Sex Spa footage runs 13 minutes, whereas the feature as presented here runs 55 minutes.
