Angel in Distress (1982) - Phil Prince

Blonde and busty Angel James is kidnapped. Mistress Candice supervises her torment, including bondage, assault, verbal humiliation and S&M orgy. Ron Jeremy plays a private dick, Amos Brag, hired to track down the kidnapped Angel.

From IMDb:
Avon was a company that ran a string of ultra-sleazy porno theaters on Times Square throughout the ’70s and most of the ’80s, specializing in rough S&M fare, accompanied by hardcore stage shows during intermissions. While there was hardly a shortage of such material already produced elsewhere, they decided to cut out the middle man as it were and produce their own foul-natured features. To this effect, they acquired the services of a number of – surely otherwise unemployable – in house directors, including the notorious Joe Davian and Phil Prince. Davian, who was rumored to sport a concentration camp tattoo, showed signs of talent when working on more mainstream adult projects like GIRLS USA and MANHATTAN MISTRESS. Prince on the other hand, whose off-screen brushes with law and order provided the stuff of (urban ?) legend, gave precious little evidence of any ambition whatsoever beyond capturing the required number of kinky sex acts within the interval his employers allotted, usually a single day.

Pantaleón y las visitadoras AKA Captain Pantoja and the Special Services (2000) - Francisco J. Lombardi

When Peruvian soldiers stationed in the Amazon go crazy with horniness and begin raping the local women, the army decides that the most obvious solution is to set up a complimentary prostitution service to keep its men in line. The only problem, of course, is that everyone’s sufficiently hung up about sex that the operation has to be a covert one, and in order to ensure discretion, the brass hires Pantaleon Pantoja (Salvador del Solar), an uptight straight arrow who doesn’t even smoke or drink. This may not seem to be the stuff of comedy, but a comedy it is, and a compelling one too, laden with hot sex and standout performances, although a maudlin finale that ties things up too neatly puts a damper on the proceedings. The second adaptation of a novel by Mario Vargas Llosa (the 1975 original was codirected by Llosa) may take on obvious targets (sexual double-standards and hypocrisy), but it does the job — as an outrageous radio shock jock, Aristóteles Picho feels particularly timely in his role.

Der Teufel in Miss Jonas (1976) - Erwin C. Dietrich

The Devil Came From Zürich, 19 June 2010

By the mid-1970s, hardcore still could not be legally screened in most European countries. That situation would soon change in a few flagship regions like Holland, France and Germany, though others like the UK and Belgium stuck to their guns well into the video era. None of this prevented Old World inhabitants of learning about the explicit extravaganzas that were packing movie theaters on the other side of the Atlantic. As yet unseen, Gerard Damiano’s landmark DEEP THROAT and the Mitchell Brothers’ BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR built up mythical reputations by word of mouth that could only be damaged by the sobering reality of these merely modest attempts at broadening a genre thus far limited to brothels and stag parties.

Duke, the leader, takes possession of her but then loses her in a poker game. The violence escalates to a full throttled climax. Filled with stark, brutal imagery from start to finish, Hot Summer In The City is a haunting film you won’t soon forget. The characters are so believable that it seems like a documentary.

By exploring the routes both into and out of the porn business, Yngvesson discovers that the adult film industry has taken on an unprecedented air of legitimacy despite lingering taboos. It didn't happen overnight though, and in addition to exploring such lingering issues as sexually transmitted diseases, racism, and misogyny, Yngvesson digs deep to offer a studied look at the progression of porn thus far, and an intriguing look at where the business may be headed in the future. After spending several months behind the scenes, Dag is asked by a desperate porn director to shoot his next project. Although extremely reluctant at first, he accepts on the premise that he can fully document the whole experience. What results is an inside look at the trails and tribulations of shooting a porn flick, that turns into a more personal portrait of the star, Jeanna Fine.
