La nueva (o más bien vieja...) promoción de los placeres de la sexualidad no reproductiva, claro siempre abordada de manera científica y con cierta comedia involuntaria que en ocasiones es divertida. Definitivamente no es el mejor trabajo de Torgny Wickman pero vale la pena darle un vistazo.
Took balls to make this, though there are far more vag shots. Also a lot of pipe smoking, bad hair (from head to jowl to upper lip to old forest growth down below), primitive animation, birds chirping, and the quaint prediction that w/ the sexual revolution will come (no pun intended) more equality for women. At times I was in eww of this time capsule, but I admired the intent and appreciated the unintended chuckles.
You would have to be pretty sexually depraved to sit through all 1 hour & 40 minutes of old, infertile scientists rabbling on about love & sexual experiences that they never have had & will have mixed in with some rather exploitative & uncomfortable numbers that last for way too long. I wonder what purpose that's for? No, no, it is all very scientific. Nothing smutty going on here. I sat through the whole thing.
This really IS an educational film. The very realistic masturbation scene, and the demonstrations of sexuality, are instructive to young people who may not know how to do these things.The weird part of this film is that all of the "sex experts" are smoking the whole time that they sit around talking about masturbation and sexual positions.
My rating of "3" is just a placeholder. I don't know if I can rate an educational piece like this. I'm sure this was innovative at the time of release. What I want to know is would you show this (or parts) to your children in modern day? I don't have kids, so I'm not in a place to decide this.
Back to basics in our troubled post-porn age, where in this 1969 docudrama, we remember human intimacy as a gift jointly contributed and not the commodified, corrupted idea being sold back to us by the corporates as humiliation, pain and power in 2015. A must see for the Masters and Johnson team of quirky experts, graphics and "real simulations". Squirm and laugh at how they construct the language of love.
Quite an artefact. Recommended if you're fascinated by the nuts and bolts of the sexual revolution & sex education. Will bore you to tears if you're not at least somewhat taken with its '60s modernist aesthetic and kitschy background music. Clinically and socially, it hasn't aged well: sex acts beyond PIV intercourse are not taken seriously; non-cis/het sexuality might as well not exist.
Four Swedish academics sit smoking and drinking tea while pontificating in heavily accented English about sex ('I should like to mention the practice of pleasuring oneself') intercut with shots of a woman wanking and a family of bears at the zoo. Absolutely bonkers, and the funniest film which didn't intend to be funny I think I've ever seen.
