doesn't even win the booby prize
In this soft-core romp, Cherry Jankowski (Sharon Joy Miller) works at the booby hatch, an experimental sex toy shop that measures the users' sex drives, and is sexually frustrated by her secretly transvestite boyfriend (not a spoiler as it's shown in the film's trailer), Herman, who wants to want until marriage. Meanwhile fellow worker Marcello, who used to be the stud at work, is now impotent.
This movie works more of a curiosity to catch multiple "Dawn of the Dead" alumni before they starred in that film because as a comedy, much like the character of Marcello, the film is completely flaccid. Despite the abundant nudity on display I found myself growing restless and looking at my watch to see if the film was almost over yet. It seemed like a story that could've been told in 30 minutes (at most) stretched out way too thin to pass for a motion picture. However as I said, if you're a fan of Romero's Living Dead films, it might hold some historical interest.
