| Candida Royalle's directorial debut
Candida Royalle got behind the camera for her Femme productions in which she intended to make porn films more suited to women and couples. In this, her first film, she did away with a lot of the hard porn shots such as extreme close-ups of penetrations and the so-called "money shots". Instead she concentrated more on the erotic side such as seduction and romantic interaction between the cast. In this film, there are six vignettes showing couples and even a threesome. There is almost no dialogue.

The six vignettes are: Rock Erotica, in which a rock fan meets her idol in a dark stairwell; TV Idol, in which a fan meets her idol - or maybe she doesn't; Gallery, in which two men and a woman in an art gallery let their imaginations take over; Photo Session, which takes place in a photographer's studio; Sales Pitch, which has a saleswoman giving more than makeup advice to her female customer; and finally, The Dressing Room, another scene in which imagination plays a large part.

Many of the cast are experienced hands at porn but the best actress here has to be Carol Cross who is completely natural and who is surely one of the cutest porn actresses ever. It is a pity that in the Gallery scene we do not see her cute features often enough. The music composed for this film more than compensates for the lack of dialogue without being too intrusive. With this film, we get to see Miss Royalle's vision of adult entertainment and it is certainly entertaining.
