Sexual frustration and misplaced desire turns two lonely men into emotional wreckage in this oddball sexploitation effort. Loveless Nick can't find a girlfriend, so he spends his evenings at a burlesque theater, where he becomes obsessed with Eve, a well-proportioned exotic dancer. Meanwhile, his friend Joe has fallen in love, but it's his poor fortune that the apple of his eye, Margo, is a street-hardened prostitute who openly taunts him even after he's paid for her company. Haunted by images of Eve and his encounter with Sandra, an artist's model who poses nude for her lesbian lover, Nick decides he can no longer stand his loneliness and pays a call to a brothel. However, the red-light establishment turns out to be "the House of Fetish," where he's first treated to an S&M show and then handed over to Toni, a prostitute who tortures Nick within an inch of his life. Maidens of Fetish Street was distributed by Bob Cresse through his Olympic International Films, a key source of 60's "roughies."
