After having been raped by her stepdad (C.Davis Smith) and cheated on by her boyfriend (Harry Reems), Viveca (Erotica Lantern) feels inexplicably drawn to girls - starting with the very girl her boyfriend just cheated on her with (Suzy Mann). Soon, she falls for Linda (Laura Cannon), a girl she meets at a party she attends with her boyfriend actually, and she can't stay away for Linda no matter how hard she tries.

Of course, back in the day, being lesbian was still a big topic (and a bit of a taboo), so Viveca visits a psychotherapist (Fred J.Lincoln) to cure her. He lets her elaborate on her sex life in every dirty detail, then he claims the best way to cure her is for him to ... I suppose you could call it shock-fuck her out of her fixation on women. At first it seems to work even, but then Viveca starts thinking about Linda and starts to enjoy the act.

 

Even though this film tries to give itself a pseudo-reputable appearance with its psychotherapy-session-framework and at least a beginning that seems to carry a message, all of this is thrown out of the window as soon as the shagging starts. Then the dialogue becomes hilariously flat and superficial ("And in your sex with Linda, did you change position?" - "Yes.") and the whole thing becomes more and more sleazy by the minute.

As for the sex scenes (which make up the majority of this film): They are softcore, but at a time when hardcore wasn't yet fully established even in grindhouse theatres, this film really tries to push the envelope in places, and some of the scenes, without showing actual penetration, look quite authentic. Oh, and the girls are all really cute in an early 1970's sort of way.

The real fun though is the film's directorial effort that miticulously sees to it that during the therapy session's dialogues the respective person presently speaking is simply not shown, while all the on-screen sound in the other (mostly erotic) scenes is exclusively moaning, very obviously dubbed at a later date by Roberta and Michael Findlay - which of course gives this movie a distinctively unreal feel. The musical score, mainly consisting of early 1970's rock, is pretty cool though.

In all, this is of course not a masterpiece by any definition of the word, but lovers of vintage sleaze will probably find something to like about this film. I know I did!
