This pornographic semi-documentary film purports to examine some of the varieties of sexual activity in San Francisco. Interviews with homosexuals, bestialists, and heterosexuals in and out of the skin trade are shown, as well as explicit footage from live sex shows and porn films. It includes some fairly typical footage for these kinds of "documentary" films, showing how a pornographic movie is filmed. Also included are some rather feeble interviews with ministers and law enforcement officials. A highlight is the film's period footage of San Francisco in the late '60s and early '70s.
