Disguised as a teen-warning film, this supposedly racy exploitation item from cult director Herschell Gordon Lewis seems charmingly old-fashioned today. High-school teacher Marcia (Pamela Rhea) lands in hot water for teaching sex-education, so she decides to hold the classes in her home. The parent causing trouble is overprotective because he had to get married young and feels trapped. He ends up having an affair with an old floozy who gets pregnant because her daughter Randy (Nancy Lee Noble of She-Devils on Wheels) has been replacing her birth-control pills with saccharine. There's a gang of hoods around, whose leader Pike (Roy Collodi) leads a gang-rape of Randy and tries to assault Marcia before he gets caught. Randy's mother has a bloody abortion on her sofa, there's a sappy love story, and the school principal talks to the camera, warning viewers that every high-school is like a keg of dynamite. Lewis himself wrote the loopy theme song, a teen father's lament featuring a crying baby set to surf music. A lot of laughs for fans of trashy camp.
