Pleasure Unlimited (1972)

aka Drop-Out Wife

How bad is it? It's very typical 1970's porn.
Should you see it? No.

When Ed Wood (see previous post) became popular in the 1980's, several people investigated clues that he may have been involved in the making of dozens of movies, mostly pornographic, that had not been catalogued. This has not proven very fruitful, but some films of his sometime collaborator A.C. Stephen have been added to "the canon," including this one, which has some talky moralizing and suggests Wood wrote a first draft (I'd say "Sun Bunnies" was outlined by Wood and "Snow Bunnies" a one-sentence idea for a sequel). The plot is of a housewife who decides to become sexually adventurous and quickly finds herself in over her head, with tragic consequences. It is nothing remarkable.
