Product Description

1960s suburbia becomes a hotbed of rampant adultery and illicit sexual encounters in legendary sexploitation director Joseph Sarno s early erotic classic, Moonlighting Wives. Joan Rand is a shrewd, sexy, disgruntled housewife and mother who yearns for the better things in life. Unbeknownst to her husband, and with the help of a friend, Joan turns her office stenography service into a thriving yet well-concealed prostitution ring that has local law enforcement baffled. Needing more and more willing young housewives to grow her business with wealthy clientele and to satisfy the town s increasing demand for naughty female fun, Joan gives adulterous and well-connected golf pro Frank a piece of the action. Joan s appetite for the good life soon leads her on a sensual and glamorous odyssey of blackmail, wife-swapping and orgiastic nightlife as she and her stable of gals mingle and swing with the country club set. As the money continues to roll in, Joan s dereliction of her domestic responsibilities leads her disgusted husband straight into the arms of a nubile, 18-year-old babysitter...and brings her one step closer to the police.

About the Director

Joseph W. Sarno is an American film director and screenwriter. One of the most prolific and distinctive auteurs to emerge from the 1960s "Adults Only" market, Sarno has more than 40 feature films in the sexploitation subgenre to his name. Whether it is his New York nudies, Florida made vibrator pictures, or Swedish erotica, Sarno's brand of sexploitation is unique in offering unusual characters, taboo-probing situations and relationships, and psychologically compelling stories, as well as opportunities for his actors to contribute genuine performances. His scripts frequently revolve around the introduction of an outsider figure who becomes a sexual catalyst for a small town community, with particular interest paid to the liberation of repressed female characters through sexual experimentation and fulfillment; they also sometimes incorporate elements of magic realism. Among his most important films are Sin You Sinners (1963), Sin in the Suburbs (1964), Red Roses of Passion (1966), Inga (1968), The Indelicate Balance (1969, unreleased until it became a bonus feature on the DVD of The Seduction of Inga, 1971), Young Playthings (1972), Laura's Toys (1975), and Confessions of a Young American Housewife (1976). Sarno adopted various pseudonyms when working in the hardcore industry in the 1970s, reserving his own name for the films he was able to make on his own terms; the hardcore work is mostly dispensible, though the misleadingly titled The Trouble with Young Stuff (1976, directed by "Otis Hamlin") does shares certain themes and obsessions with Sarno's main filmography. In recent DVD audio commentaries and interviews, Sarno has admitted that his actors sometimes engaged in authentic sexual intercourse (though it was not required by the softcore nature of his films) and female masturbation, which he encouraged for the sake of portraying the authenticity of orgasm.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Antique June 11, 2010
To me, director Joe Sarno is an over-looked master of movie erotcism.
But I'm giving this color study of surburban sin only 2 stars because all the eroticism has been edited out.
There's no nudity, no sex and it could have easily been shown on TV.
In the commentary by Sarno, he said that he deliberately played down naked bodies and sex but added that censorship boards also pitched in to do their own censorship.
To really see what Sarno could do in black and white, check out "Desire Under the Palms," which may not be available yet on DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why bother? January 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The sales pitch on this movie was much more interesting than the movie. This is an antique and can not be considered for anything but a "G" rating and some sort of ambiguous description.
