Claude Mulot - La Femme-Objet AKA Programmed for Pleasure (1980)


Claude Mulot is a French director who also used the pseudonym Frederic Lansac for his erotic films. In 1969 he made an erotic horror feature entitled La Rose Ecorchée (The Blood Rose). In this film, the mad scientist was named Frederic Lansac, and he chose it for his pseudonym when he made the move to hardcore films.

Claude Mulot's porno entries are eccentric. They feature elements of science fiction and what the French call the "fantastique". --[Aug 2005]

Perhaps the best French erotic director, and that's really saying something. He was a well respected serious director before becoming an adult film auteur, whose witty and inventive sex films like LE SEXE QUI PARLE, LES PETITE ECOLIERES and LA GRANDE BAISE put the competition to shame.

Mitsuru Meike - Hatsujô kateikyôshi: sensei no aijiru AKA The GlamorousLife Of Sachiko Hanai (2003)



A riotous amalgam of political satire, apocalyptic comedy and steamy erotica, The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai is an insanely entertaining example of the Japanese pink film (pinku eiga) genre, a popular form of erotic softcore cinema. Titillation is, of course, a primary goal, but due to Japan's censorship codes (no depiction of genitalia or penetration is allowed), creative storytelling is also important. When both factors are present, as in this memorably nutty offering, the result is particularly pleasurable. Sachiko Hanai (Emi Kuroda) is an escort who specializes in teacher-student scenarios (the film's delightfully apposite original title is Horny Home Tutor: Teacher's Love Juice). One day, after an energetic tutoring session, Sachiko adjourns to a nearby café. An argument between two men escalates, and she is shot between the eyes. Miraculously only dazed, she grabs a mysterious cylinder from the café floor, thus making off with a clone of George W. Bush's finger. And then things get really weird. Sachiko discovers odd psychic abilities and begins imagining various theories of the universe and multivalent philosophical speculations, all to the throb of techno. While she pursues arcane poststrucuturalist knowledge—and has intellectual intercourse with a political philosopher—a consortium of bad guys chase her in the hopes of recovering the cylinder. Raunchy and hilarious in equal measures, with a dash of smart political commentary, Mitsuru Meike's memorable feature will undoubtedly tickle you pink.

Finn Karlsson - I Jomfruens tegn AKA Danish Pastries (1973)


IMDb review:

I was exceedingly happy to be able to find this old gem. In the early 70s, there was brief window when porn was where many cinematic experiments were happening. Some of them actually had some promise for being important. Perhaps the oddest is the porn musical. This is the most interesting from a historical perspective.

You have to place yourself in the era: a huge percentage of the population believed that the world was in a time of change for the better and this change had something to do with the overlap of free sex, drugs, some astrological appropriateness and the end of war. At the same time, the American government was hammering back on all fronts, while the Dutch and Danish governments were seemingly alone in supporting all four.

Joe D'Amato - Emanuelle e gli ultimi cannibali AKA Emanuelle And The Last Cannibals (1977)


One of director Joe D'Amato's best in the Emanuelle series. This film tells the story of photo-journalist (Laura Gemser) who runs into the cannibal proclivities of an Amazon tribe. After viewing documentary footage of cannibals torturing, executing and devouring their enemies, she apparently still wants to learn about such behavior firsthand and journeys down the Amazon with a research team to find the tribe in question. Naturally, the entire group falls into the cannibals' clutches, leading to endless messy scenes of people being carved up, impaled, disemboweled, split in half and (of course) eaten.

Peter Perry - The Pigkeeper's Daughter (1972)


Harry H. Novak was a dirty old man. A sort of meat-and-potatoes Russ Meyer, he shoveled loads of celluloid treats down America's greedy smut-hole, among them these 2 hillbilly pud-pounders that hold up very well since they were completely fucking filthy.

Russ Meyer - The Immoral Mr. Teas (1959)


Mr. Teas is a door to door salesman for dentists' appliances. Everywhere he goes he encounters beautiful "well-developed" nude women, which of course stir his interest. The only sound in the film is the voice of a narrator and a very monotonic musical theme played on the clarinet or some similar instrument.

Roy Stuart - Glimpse 1 (1990 - 2008)

The new Glimpse Video is unlike anything Roy's done before, unlike any porn video ever, in fact. After viewing its unprecedented two hours and 20 minutes I called Roy and told him he should be entering this in film festivals because he's done what so many have attempted and failed to do.
The New Glimpse Video is an exquisitely photographed experimental film with an eclectic sound track. It has been filmed and mastered using digital video equipment for superior image and sound quality. There are more than 30 women in over 40 separate scenes. The women are very real, right down to their abundant bushes, wet red pussies and lovely natural breasts, without being the tired housewives we've come to associate with American all-natural sex tapes. The women on this tape are truly beautiful, many European fashion models, often quite young, and yet they're engaging in acts usually reserved for the coarsest old pros.

Roy Stuart - Glimpse 3 (1990 - 2008)

‘Tenderness’, to the astonishment of High Court judges and some others, was D.H. Lawrence’s working title for what became ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’. Lawrence perceived a ‘taboo on tenderness’ in his time, and it’s apparent that the West has nowhere near cracked that taboo even today, eight patchily ‘liberated’ decades later. Enter Roy Stuart with Glimpse 3, the third in his richly packed series of probingly erotic videos. Whilst every sizeable episode in no’s 1 and 2 has, for the alert, its quotient or infusion of tenderness, only a minority of Stuart’s viewers/voyeurs may spot it amid the intense provocation – of mind as much as groin -- of the so-much that can be found going on in them.nnThe first six minutes of Glimpse 3 give flashing hints of the kind of whirling whole we’ve already had to thank Roy Stuart for, albeit there happen to be no male-female conjunctions shown (fear not, we shall encounter them aplenty, since there’s some 140 minutes on this disc). But the accomplished Anna Bielska, who can look any age from 13 to 23, is there dancing, now clothed now naked, in parks and alleys of Rome. Then a sternly entrancing brunette, legs wide-spread on a gilt chair, holds knickers (whose?) aloft; soon she will be near-naked on the carpet, beginning a magical self-caressing journey.

Jesus Franco - Lilian (la virgen pervertida) AKA Lilian The PervertedVirgin (1984)


“Sure, you'll have difficulties finding this one - but try to get it, because it's THE Katja Bienert film you always wanted to watch; the one you HAVE to watch if you're into mid-80s-sleaze and a beautiful young girl displaying her wonderful body and her absolute incapability of acting.”...

Richard Kern - Face To Panty Ratio (2011)

Presenting a mesmerizing little video by Richard Kern called Face to Panty Ratio. There's not a whole lot to say about this one. If you like girls with pretty faces, camel toes, and asses, this is exactly what you need to get you through the day.
I took the liberty of counting all the panty shots, face shots, and panty/face shots to figure out the ratios in Face to Panty Ratio. The shots of panties came out on top with a healthy 53 shots. Faces clocked in at 41, while combined faces & panties shots counted 11 frames. Be forewarned: there is a good chance that Thurston Moore's music, combined with Kern's strobe of underwear and faces, could catapult you into a seizure.

Sergej Moya - Hotel Desire (2011)


Sergej Moya is a German actor, writer and director who had the idea for the movie. The 23-aged filmmaker appreciates erotic films which celebrate emotional relationships and depict explicit sexual actions as part of an interesting and demanding love story. So he created the ambitious project HOTEL DESIRE. In his film he wants to tell the story of a woman who is longing for more in her life than only the daily business. It's an attempt to explore human aspiration for explicit sexuality and to present it as an intriguing story with erotical feelings and sensual pictures.

It's said that women think about sex every 60 seconds on average during the day, men every 52 seconds," he says. "However, I could not find any data on how many seconds, minutes or hours we think about murder and homicide every day. I want to make a film that does justice to sexuality as an expression of human joy of life. A film that confidently borrows from the porn genre, but that is not a porn film."

Ovidio G. Assonitis & Emmanuelle Arsan - Forever Emmanuelle aka Laure(1976)


Journey to the lost tribe...
The succulent Annie Belle (of HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK and BLACK EMMANUELLE, WHITE EMMANUELLE fame) stars as Laura, a free-spirited young woman whose bold philosophy of pleasure enflames the passions of every man and woman she encounters in the steamy city of Manila. But when she's invited to join a deep jungle expedition with a hunky filmmaker (Al Cliver of ZOMBIE and THE BEYOND) and a beautiful anthropologist (Arsan), Laura discovers that no sexual hunger can ever be truly forbidden. Can one woman's insatiable lust create a new dimension of love, or will her complete carnal surrender to a strange native tribe lead to the most shocking act of all?

Gerard Damiano - Never So Deep (1981)


Music for the scene where Sam Strong auditions three of Madame Vivian's girls includes the theme from "The People's Court" which also debuted in 1981.

Riccardo Ghione - La rivoluzione sessuale (1968)


A psychoanalyst, who is a fervent supporter of the sexological theories by Wilhelm Reich, induces a group of seven couples to retire to a hotel in order to practise partner-swapping with no restraint. Something gets out of hand though and the experiment has no happy end. A boring erotic movie which is mainly interesting for the dramatic evolution of the plot, maybe due to Dario Argento's contribution to the script. Laura Antonelli, in her full personal appeal, who is already "naked" enough, is worthy of a special mention

Vasili Mass - Zirneklis AKA Spider (1991)


A young girl agrees to sit as Virgin Mary for a painter. soon after that she starts experiencing nightmares in which painter turns into a giant spider and tries to rape her. is this just her imagination or is there something else to it?

After the success of many renowned advertising campaigns for Aubade Lingerie, Hervé Lewis' first film, in which he rediscovers the lighting of his black and white photographs, is dedicated to the beauty of women. His pure and poetic images convey an uncommon sensuality, power and intensity. Through Hervé Lewis' lens, every woman becomes a star.

Rollin creates a scenery in an aristocratic atmosphere where a group of friends come together to have a party. However in the woods surrounding the castle a kleptomaniac is hiding and waiting to take advance of the partygoers.

The Countess X” is one of the finest classics from the golden age of French porn. Beautifully shot on 35mm film, it and features some of the best actors and actresses from the period. This release of ”Countess X” was restored from the original negatives in HD-quality, making this the best possible version of the film.

Jean Rollin - Gamines en chaleur aka Monique (1979)

The maid, Yvette, sympathises with Monique and together they peep on the aunt and uncle having sex. Yvette breaks the deadlock by seducing the uncle and catching the aunt masturbating with a cucumber in the bathroom. Her boyfriend ("Dominique") catches Yvette and the uncle in the act, and, as far as can be gathered from the events (I don't follow the Italian-dubbed dialogue) blackmails him to agree to inviting his friends round for an orgy.

Joseph W. Sarno - Odd Triangle (1968)


from IMDB:
Usually reliable d.p. Stephen Silverman apparently had problems balancing the interior vs. exterior lighting, and the grading for the print used by Something Weird for the video reissue is defective, resulting in shadowy interior scenes that are difficult to see and several exterior sequences that are pure white-outs.

Carlos Tobalina - Three Ripening Cherries (1979)


IMDb comments:
"Terrific "coming of age" porn; almost too much of a good thing

Carlos Tobalina made so many porn films & videos that the wheat has gotten lost amidst the chaff, but THREE RIPENING CHERRIES holds up very well and deserves rediscovery. Boasting a terrific female cast, it is still stimulating decades later, revived by Alpha Blue Archives from a nice looking print.

Premise is three young sisters (Lynn LeMay, Brooke West and Misty Regan) fantasizing about sex, while their mom (oddly but effectively-cast loops star Kitty Shayne) wants them to hold out for true love. Its credited as being based on a Guy de Maupassant story, no less.

Opening reels spotlight Shayne exclusively, as she tells her offspring, plus visiting European gal Claudia (Rosa Lee), about her own sexual history, in order to have them benefit from her experience and avoid various pitfalls.

Max Pécas - Les branchés à Saint-Tropez AKA The Fashioned in Saint-Tropez (1983)


If it were not Max Pécas it would be an average youth romantic movie with some elements of crime comedy, but it is Max Pécas. So, all other genres may be passed in the lovely name of erotic. Moreover, it's one of the most successful Max Pécas' films: it even engendered a so-called "trilogie tropézienne" (with "Deux enfoirés à Saint-Tropez", 1986, and "On se calme et on boit frais à Saint-Tropez", 1987, which were his two last films). Well, there is even some plot in "Les branchés à Saint-Tropez": two young couples arrive at Saint-Tropez and settle on the villa of father of one girl's ex-. But this father proves to be a counterfeiter, and there is even a police auto-moto-chase in the final of film... Well, who will watch the Max Pécas' movie for the plot? The genuine subject is a sun, a nudity and a very French joy of life.

Pier Ludovico Pavoni - La peccatrice (1975)


Plot: (sorry, only italian)
Sicilia, anni 50. Il padrone di una zolfatara vessa in ogni modo i dipendenti e in particolar modo Turi. La sua intenzione è quella di portargli via Debora, la bella moglie di colore (che le beghine della città reputano una strega).

Knud Vesterskov - Constance (1999)
