Dr. Sharon Thorpe Reporting for Duty
Carnal Haven (1975)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
As our film kicks off we meet a variety of couples who are all suffering from some sort of sexual issue. We then meet Dr. Klein (Sharon Thorpe) who runs a sex clinic where she teaches people the proper way to have sex.
CARNAL HAVEN is a fairly entertaining film from Carlos Tobalina that tries to be both educational as well as offering the porn crowds what they wanted, which was hardcore sex. The term educational is used very lightly as that there was just a ploy to make the film seem like it had a reason to be doing hardcore since that there was still a bit of a legal issue.
The film offers up a great number of familiar faces and I thought they all managed to make the film entertaining. The various characters were all put into sometimes funny situations and I really loved the early scenes showing them and their issues. We get the likes of Annette Haven, John Leslie, Joey Silvera, Desiree west and many others and all of them are in fine form here. Thorpe basically is the educator who must show her clients what they are doing wrong.
is CARNAL HAVEN a masterpiece or some sort of must-see? Not at all but as I make my way through the work of Tobalina it's at least a somewhat entertaining one.
