Being kind of weird guy, I don’t really watch sex comedies for the sex, so of course I’m a big fan of 70’s British sex comedies where you don’t have to worry too much about any hot sex scenes getting in the way of the preposterous stories or the “comedy” (which is often pretty entertaining, but rarely for the reasons originally intended).This is a portmanteau sex comedy like “The Wife Swappers” or “Sex and the Other Woman”. The subject here is the “battle between the sexes”. In the first story an unfaithful husband and wife both take their respective lovers to the same hotel. In the second story a plumber does some work at the swank apartment of a French glamor actress and gets involved in a swinging party. This story, like a lot of British sex comedies of the era (i.e.”Confessions of a Window Cleaner, “Adventures of a Taxi Driver)really caters to the fantasies of the male British working class (which apparently involved getting grease all over the bare boobs and butts of the kind of glamorous women they could never have in real life).The third story is a kind of throwaway fantasy about a guy imagining he is an outlaw biker and chasing naked woman around. The fourth story is about a peeping tom getting his comeuppance.
