A small circus turns to nude performances and live sex shows in order to survive
financially. The cast also have it away in their caravans.
As with other 70s Danish films the hard core versions seem to be shorter
than the soft core ones.
There are many unknowns. Some of them may have appeared in other films.
Others probably did not. There may some duplication among the unknowns for this film.

Eberhardt Kronhausen & Phyllis Kronhausen - Freiheit für die Liebe AKA Freedom to Love [English dub] (1969)
Here’s something different... a vintage West German "white coater" hosted by bonafide sexologists PHYLLIS and EBERHARD KRONHAUSEN. And rather than rolling out the usual sex loops disguised as educational aids, the Kronhausens argue that sexual freedom (the "Freedom to Love") ultimately benefits society, and that sexual suppression leads to criminality and divorce.
To prove their point, the scholarly couple present dramatizations of four cases from their files. The first involves a young mechanic who discovers the shocking truth about his sexually voracious girlfriend as he’s taken into custody by the vice squad... In the second segment, a lesbian couple are "outed" to the police by their outraged neighbors... And following a grim segment about illegal abortion, the final -- and most explicit -- vignette demonstrates how a troubled marriage is rescued when the lachrymose lovebirds join a raunchy swing club...

“Sexologists, psychologists, and proponents of sexual freedom, the Kronhausens here attempt to induce erotic response in the audience by carefully chosen visual stimuli and juxtapositions (aimed at both conscious and unconscious). Phallic symbols and open orifices, a tongue licking an orange, an unexpected finger entering the frame: almost any object or act, no matter how innocuous, the Kronhausens show, can be made to appear erotic, and reveals our predisposition towards ‘shaping’ visual evidence for purposes of erotic gratification.” - Amos Vogel, Film as a Subversive Art
