This is a film which gives an insight to the world and views of the 60's and 70's to the world of the sex industry in the UK and the Netherlands. As a former resident of one and now living in the other, I found this particularly interesting, especially compared to how both countries are now. For me this was an interesting insight, but not much more than an extended news artical with naughty film clips... to be honest the sort of thing you might see late night on channel 4. Not bad, but not great either
Great fun and a great look at the late 60s, early 70s sex scene, particularly as it applied in London. We get inside what seems to really be a dirty bookshop, back room and all. What's great here too is that the proprietor (real or otherwise) is protesting that the stock here in the back is pretty much the same as the stuff in the front, when we can clearly see from the magazine fronts behind him, there are clearly erections showing. Still, hypocrisy is almost the name of the game here, and although the film is never as moralising as The Wife Swappers, not everything is waived through. I liked the Victorian reconstructions with the bible thumper reading dirty bits (from the Bible!) and the blue movie film making set up (probably not genuine but certainly had convincing moments). The film maker outlines to the two main protagonists what he wants and then indicates to a younger girl that at some point she gets excited by the activity and joins in. Afterwards, he indicates that she did fine but he had expected a little more action from her. Her rather sweet response is that `they were moving too fast'.
I had ordered this mainly because I had a gift card and just a little bit of money left on it. It was only vaguely interesting, but had some funny Victorian reconstruction moments as well as a small cameo by Germaine Greer as a judge on some porn panel in Amsterdam.
