Storyline

Linda, frustrated that her hugely energetic sex life leaves her unsatisfied, seeks medical help. The doctor informs her that the reason for her problem is that her clitoris is mistakenly located at the back of her throat - but there is a very simple remedy, which the doctor, and various other men, proceed to demonstrate.

Alternate Versions

Several openings to the film exist. The original opens with a text prologue referencing Freud and cuts to the familiar opening credits of Lovelace driving around Florida with the commonly known opening theme. The Arrow home video version cuts this opening and begins with the first shot of Linda in the car. Another version of the opening starts with the car shot but with a completely different interlude in the background. The Italian version retains the Freud opening with Italian text and has the opening titles, including Italian dubbing production credits, with the familiar opening music with Italian titles over still shots of Lovelace.

User Reviews

Another dull overrated film, falsely labeled as a classic.
12 July 2002 | by honesty_in_a_bottleSee all my reviews

If this is a porn classic, then the genre is in trouble. Not only are the acting, direction, and script unfortunately dismal, but even the theme and editing are poor. Gerard Damiano's style seems to lack even the most basic sense of eroticism.

Lovelace's ability to swallow the male sex organ is impressive, but certainly not unheard of, and while she is okay to look at, the film's refusal to focus on any other female character is a little frustrating. For instance, I was rather impressed with Carol Connors' performance as the nurse, but I would have liked to see her character developed more.

In the film's credit, I have to say that the music is just strange and intrusive enough to be entertaining. Also, Lovelace has the only line that has ever made me laugh in a porno movie. After she finds out that has a strange mutation (one of the worse elements of the script), and the doctor is laughing at her, she says, "How would you like it if your balls were in your ears?" The follow-up line from Reems is cringe-inducingly bad, but that one simple and honest line managed to surprise a chuckle out of me.

The rest of the humor in the movie is sadly lacking, and combined with the poor lighting and lazy cinematography, the result is a little gross.
