Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard

Distraught over the size of her actually quite spacious wardrobe, Edina (Jennifer Saunders) attempts to annex Saffy's bedroom. Saffy (Julia Sawalha) refuses, suggesting that her mother take over long-lost son Serge's room instead. Saf, Eddy, and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) break into the room, which is a virtual museum to the boy even though Eddy can't even remember what her son looks like. They discover an issue of '70s porn rag Razzle -- though not, to Patsy's relief, the issue in which she appeared. Reminded of her own sexual shortcomings, the uptight Eddy agrees to Patsy's plan that they hire a pair of rent boys for an old-fashioned orgy like the ones they used to attend. Unfortunately, though, the only procurer the women know is Eddy's hairdresser, Christopher (James Dreyfus), whose escort acquaintances tend toward the effeminate side. Just as Patsy and Eddy are beginning to loosen up with their "dates," they realize that the blue movie they've rented to get in the mood has gotten mixed up with the videotape for yet another of Saffy's school projects. They rush to the school, trailed by Mother (June Whitfield), Christopher, and his female-impersonator lover (Ian Gelder) -- but not soon enough to prevent the students from viewing the film, which includes footage of an orgy Patsy and Eddy attended in the '60s. Originally broadcast on BBC 1 on April 20, 1995, Absolutely Fabulous: Sex marked series three, episode three of this popular Brit-com.
