Synopsis

The tale of a happily married bisexual swinging couple who make a bet that they can seduce a couple of naive young newlyweds, during a weekend get-together at their luxury Riviera villa.

Our take

One of the most transgressive of Radley Metzger’s softcore films, this perverse game is all seductive banter, erotic play, and full sexual liberation. One of the first films to portray bisexuality on screen, it is a fabulous product of the 70s: aesthetics, design and sass included. Happy New Year!

Critics reviews

Metzger’s direction is flawless, demonstrating an awareness of his unwitting audience’s impending skittishness toward pansexuality by playing up the moments of nervous humor and wide-eyed zeal in his undeniably attractive “innocent” couple.
