    It’s interesting that nobody has commented yet. This is a very strange movie. I have no interest in the male rear end, and there seemed to be a lot of that here. What I definitely am interested in is full-frontal male nudity. For a good portion of thiis movie there was always either a thin fabric covering the male organ, or cloth that was placed in a very teasing way. Finally in the latter half of the movie we started to see some very nice scenes of the naked male body, which I liked very much. Most of the music was much to my liking also. This was a good addition to your collection.

      Those are my sentiments exactly. Still, it’s 1971. The LGBTQ community wasn’t as “exposed” back then as it is now. Take TLA Releasing for one example. I enjoyed this movie both for what it was and wasn’t.
