Doctor Dreadful (Zoltan G.Spencer) & his organisation the Hand of Pleasure terrorize London, using his girl roots to shag the life out of his opponents. However, the last of his opponents, a CIA-agent (Ron Darby), just had time to hand some secret files over to American tourist Joe (William Howard), before being shaged to death himself.

This however comes to the ears of a Scotland Yard inspector behind Doc Dreadful, & he informs Joe about the situation he's in, & that Scotland Yard plans to use him as a decoy to catch Dreadful.

Having heard that, Joe "is in no mood for the British Museum" (original quote), so he visits American hooker Jill (Terry Johnson) for a quick shag. However, Joe & Jill seem to get along pretty well, so they soon beconme a couple ... withthe insopector having a watchful eye over everything they are doing (including shagging).

Eventually though, the inspector loses their trail, which is exactly when they are kidnapped by Dreadful. & while Jill is locked into a cage & forced to have endless hours of lesbian sex with Dreadful's 2 girl robots, Joe is connected to Dreadful's brainwashing machines - that turns normal women into his horny girl robots -, withthe intention of turning him into a poof. Somehwo though the plan backfires & Joe is turned into a regular stud, breaks free of his chains, knocks out Dreadful, & shags his 2 girl robots out of commission ...

& when the inspector has finally found Joe & Jill, everything is already over.


Though the film tries to pretend it was shot in England via massive stock footage, there's little doubt that it was shot in California (since it consists largely of indoor-shots anyways).

The plot of Hand of Pleasure, a silly espionage story with a masked villain who is kind enough to have his opponents shagged to death, is of course little more than an excuse to show as much nudity & sex (strictly softcore) as possible, & while many will call it just cheap & sleazy (& one can't really argue with that) I also call it funny & endearing, beneath all the sex & sleaze the film has a certain innocent honesty of not pretending to be more than it is but trying to make the best out of it anyways, even if the best isn't all that much ...
