It is difficult to tell whether the tail is wagging the dog or not in this pornographic documentary which is also a documentary about pornography and what is considered to be obscene. In addition to its sado-masochistic and other hardcore footage, which is a small proportion of the whole, this film features a number of interesting interviews. Dr. Albert Ellis discusses his ideas on puritanism and guilt. Cartoonist Tommi Ungerer is interviewed about his "sex machine" drawings, and there are humorous interviews with Screw Magazine editor Al Goldstein, and publisher James Buckley.
