Editorial Reviews

Do you know the difference between "the Bull Dyke, the Stomping Bitch, and the Baby Butch?" If not, then immediately watch Chained Girls, an outrageous expose of the Lesbian Gay Scene of the Sixties, and learn the True Facts about these she-wolves who prowl the streets of Manhattan after dark! See: "The Secret Haunts and Mysterious Life of the Lesbian!" See: "A Young Deb making Her Debut as a Daughter of Lesbos by being Subjected to the Most Shocking and Horror-Filled Initiation Ever Imagined!" Yes, it's exactly the kind of serious sociological statement you'd expect from the makers of Glen or Glenda? and Olga's House of Shame. Plus, join Dominique and her galpals for a special meeting of the Daughters of Lesbos, "a lesbian organization dedicated to the proposition that women are superior beings." After Helga gets it on with a counselor at a girl's camp, Dominique splashes in a tub with a pretty young playmate, and "female stud" Maxine makes it with a hippie hitchhiker. Yow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Titles From Something Weird July 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The two main titles on this DVD are both hilarious, particularly the first, 1965's "Chained Girls". This is not a BDSM feature at all, and neither is it claimed to be. It is, instead, a supposed documentary about the "growing menace" of lesbianism. I find it humourous to think that the filmmakers sincerely believed any of the (mis)information presented in this film. The box compares it to Ed Wood's "Glen Or Glenda", and I can see why. There is no sex in this 1965 feature, and very little nudity. It is incredibly silly, and quite funny to those of us who enjoy bad cinema. Directed by Joseph P. Mawra.
A more erotic film is 1968's "Daughters of Lesbos", this one being made to pander to the tastes of certain men. It is a very nearly plotless tale of an organization "dedicated to the proposition that women are superior beings". As if there was ever any doubt. This one contains much more sex and nudity, but much less unintentional comedy than "Chained Girls". "Daughters of Lesbos" was directed by Peter Woodcock, I swear that is the name given.
Also on the disc are 8 "Sappho Shorts", some from the 1930s, as well as a number of trailers. There is also an "Easter Egg" or two for those who wish to search.
All in all, this is a great disc from Something Weird Video, full of the qualities we've come to expect from this company.

Any thought that this double-feature from the wacky folks at Something Weird Video is about women in prisons because the first title is "Chained Girls" is dispelled by the second being "Daughters of Lesbos," because this DVD is all about lesbian sexploitation films. "Chained Girls" (1965) is presented by director Joseph P. Mawra as a documentary, narrated by Joel Holt, educating its audience about the secret and mysterious life of the lesbian, their secret haunts, how they have fun, so on and so forth. We learn that lesbians have a secret language, an inherent sense of insecurity, are usually suicidal, and that every dyke is out only for herself. Statistics pop up from time to time on title cards, while in between we see jealous dykes in a battle to the death over a fem (do not worry: you will learn about the different types of lesbians). At the end we are told that lesbianism is caused by such conditions as a neurotic fear of marriage, fear of bearing children in marriage, an unfounded hatred of all men, or hatred for an aggressive dominating mother. It turns out the point of this film is not to show women in their underwear, but rather to inform the audience, because "Only through understanding the facts, can we keep Lesbianism from becoming a serious social problem." I wonder if these women were being told that they were playing lesbians because in some of these scenes except for the narration there is nothing to indicate sexual preference. This is a classic example of an exploitation film, using the trappings of science and education to justifying watching scantily dressed women.

"Daughters of Lesbos" (1968) from director Peter Woodcock is ostensibly a series of vignettes reflecting the weekly meeting of a group of lesbians.
