Taking off on Westworld, a bus load of people going to a resort that helps them solve their sexual hang-ups. Everyone and everything is monitored by a huge computer run by a gang of white-coated technicians, which deducts their deepest sexual fantasies - whether or not they are aware of them. The clients are paired off with each other for optimum effect. A bigot, for example, is given a beautiful black woman to make love to, and a frigid housewife is linked up with a tender, soft-spoken lover.
A prime example of what a truly good adult film can be like. The producers obviously put a lot of care (and, for a porno film, quite a bit of money) into this, and it shows. Shot on film, it doesn't have the cheap, rushed look that many adult films of the period (not to mention the dirt-cheap shot-on-video junk of today) had. There are some actual "performances" other than the sexual kind (although those are quite good, too), and for once you actually find yourself getting involved in the story--an astonishing feat for an adult film. A major plus is that it doesn't have the degrading, nasty attitude towards women that is unfortunately so prevalent in most of today's adult movies, which is a refreshing change. The centerpiece of the film, however--to me, at least--is the spectacular Desiree West, one of the few black actresses appearing in adult films at the time and far and away the best. She is, to put it mildly, smokin' hot, and just her scenes alone are worth the price of the rental. If you're an adult film buff, don't miss it. If you're not especially enamored of adult films, check this one out anyway. It'll surprise you.
