This is the “story” of bored suburban housewives led by “Lynn”, who use their looks and talents to make extra money in the seedy heart of the Big City to support their materialistic lifestyle back in the ‘burbs. Women like Lynn take gigs posing for “camera club” photo shoots, attend swinger parties and fulfill fantasies of perverts only to end up with a fistful of cash back in the mundane world of track housing, manicured lawns and the two-car garage.

Director Al Ruban, who went on to produce several respectable art-house films for acclaimed director John Cassavettes, certainly doesn’t skimp on the tasty female nudity. Foxy Jackie Miller takes a long bath. 60’s soft-core picture regulars Gigi Darlene, June Roberts, and Marlene Starr all pose topless for pervy shutterbug guys. A voluptuous belly dancer shakes her sexy stuff at a wild stag party. Moreover, we also got sadomasochism (Lynn’s first customer is a pathetic whimpering dude who enjoys being whipped), voyeurism, lesbianism, and even (sort of) necrophilia. Meanwhile, a grim-voiced narrator solemnly intones about the sordid escapades throughout the movie. Steve Karmen’s swingin’ jazz score really hits the groovy spot. The stark, grainy black and white cinematography by Jerry Denby and C. “Chuck” Davis Smith further enhances the overall racy fun. Smith also pops up as a leering cameraman and Ruban appears as Lynn’s unsuspecting husband Bob. A nice slice of amusingly mild, yet still titillating 60’s soft-core sleaze.
