Cult "pink" director Hisayasu Sato's films typically focus on unusual relationships among the alienated dregs of urban society, and this one is no exception, as a taxi driver who rapes women runs into a former victim and begins a decidedly peculiar affair. Minako Ogawa, Naoko Takeda, and the omnipresent Katsumi Ohtaki co-star in yet another of Sato's downbeat dispatches from the urban underbelly, co-written with Shiro Yumeno under the title "Decaying Town," which would be a good title for most of the director's works. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

Lucio Fulci and Edwige Fenech? Yep, that's right. Like so many other Italian directors of the time Fulci did a lot of sex comedies so perhaps it was inevitable that at some point he would have crossed paths with one of the leading actresses. In La Pretora (the French release title translates as The Judge and the Whore) Fenech plays twin sisters, one a judge and the other a porn star. Enemies of the judge devise a plan to confuse the two and create problems. Or at least that's what seems to be happening since there's no subtitles and they would be helpful in parts. It's a bit slow going at first but there's a good bit of Fenech later in the film (the screenshot of Fenech combing her pubic hair kept being deleted by the image host so I left it out). For Fulci fans this is only for completists because it's not very Fulci-ean and has zero horror elements. It could have been done by numerous directors. Fenech fans, though, will consider it a must.
This is a dodgy sex comedy with more plot holes than you could poke a stick at. There's a fair bit of hanky panky and generally the emphasis is on sleaze sleaze and more sleaze.

Swingers is a Dutch feature film released in 2002 and tells the story of a thirty-something couple Diana and Julian and their experiment in swinging.
Despite Diana's insecure nature, she and her husband Julian agree with the idea to sexually experiment with another couple. They put out an ad on the internet to which the well experienced Alex and Timo react. We follow Diana and Julian as they prepare for the arrival of Alex and Timo, who they have invited to their home for the weekend. Diana is nervous. As soon as she is confronted with the self-confident and ravishingly sexy Alex, her insecurity increases even more. Timo seems disinterested, a sharp contrast to the boyish excitement of Julian. But as night falls and their sexual exploration begins, we notice Timo may not be as casual as he initially seemed and Diana on the other hand contains hidden strength.
Jane and her friends are in Africa. When Jane gets lost in the woods and vanishes, she wakes up at the foot of the ape-man. One thing leads to another, apeman explores Madame and she does a little exploring herself to their mutual enjoyment. Turns out the ape man's real name is John, and he is the son of an aristocrat who was lost in the woods 20 years earlier. John consoled himself by overthrowing everything that moves to the delight of the ladies. Since porn movies always follow successful commercial films, it wass clear that the icon par excellence of the ape-man would have several incarnations more "carnal". Joe D'Amato's film gracefully captures the Tarzan legend using the husband-wife team of Rosa Caracciolo & Rocco Siffredi. The women are sexy, the jungle photography is beautiful, all in all, this is a very enjoyable watch. Note that the film uses the famous cry invented for Johnny Weismuller.

From IMDB: "Not nearly as sexually graphic or violent as either the original 'Caligula' or D'Amato's film, this is strictly soft core all the way - bar two scenes involving mating horses (taken from 'The Beast') and donkeys (filmed specifically for this film). I wouldn't call this historically accurate exactly (there's an understatement!), but I'll let that pass as the film at least tries to pile on the sleaze to make up for its other shortcomings: even though everything that goes on here is too cheesy to be offensive. For instance, during a torture sequence, a man is seen chained upside down and hacked between the legs with a sword, causing him to bleed to death. This could have been disturbing, if not for the fact the victim has been stripped down to a ghastly pair of black pants, which just made me smile with amusement. The rape of a bride and groom, also seen in the Penthouse version, is re-played here, only Caligula rapes the guy with his penis this time and not his fist. There is also a threesome involving a midget and scenes of incest."
