    This film was OK, but I still prefer the director's later masterpiece, 'Interracial Butt-Destroyers 12'. 6 years 7 months ago

    Terrific movie. Call it art or pornography (it functions as both), but we need more intelligent, well-crafted, truly adult films like this and it's sad that there have been so few made. 6 years 9 months ago

    I agree with mightysparks. The first half of the movie seems like the "story" was only a bad excuse for sex scenes. The second half showed what the real intention of the movie is, however: It made also clear that the only reason why this is a canonized movie is the fact that it was/is very scandalous for a non porno, but a scandalous movie is not always equally art. In my opinion a waste of time. 6 years 10 months ago
