Editorial Reviews

This amazing cult-mondo sex oddity from acclaimed adult film director Carlos Tobalina is a sight to behold! Cross one part "hardcore" and one part "mondo" film, throw in some unbelievable music, then mix it up with some crazy editing (the opening credits appear 40 minutes into the film) and you have REFINEMENTS IN LOVE!

A penetrating look at 1970s sexual culture, REFINEMENTS IN LOVE is a jaw-dropping, pants-dropping film unlike anything you've ever seen before. Narrated by cult actress LIZ RENAY, this film is chock full o' nudity and sex. You'll see a woman hypnotised into the ultimate sexual pleasure, the sexual benefits of talcum powder(!!!), and even director Tobalina himself giving us a glimpse of his chic 1970s California mansion while he's filming one of his famous "adult" features. Of course, you want to see this... as long as you're a grown up! This "adults only" entertainment explores the pleasures of the flesh in a most unique and titillating way! Eagle-eyed adult film fans will also notice a rare early appearance from adult film starlet, Rene Bond!

This is one wacky film relic. If you made a check list of all the camp ingredients you would want in a retro mondo sex movie doc -- you would end up with REFINEMENTS IN LOVE.

Phony sex institute acknowledgements? Check. Thematic folk songs with pointed lyrics? Check. Movie THEME complete with string orchestra? Check. Weird credits (as in they don;t appear until 40 minutes into the movie! That must be some kind of record...) Check. Verite footage of sex movie premiere circa 1970? Check. Interview with director ludicrously superimposed on a TV as if it is being featured on the "news"? Check. Bogus sweaty doctor using unorthodox methods to cure a frigid female? Check. Talcum powder sex scene? Check. Wildly inflated claim of social importance to sexual freedom? (hint: atomic explosion as negative result). Check. Mind-stopping narration by celebrltiy? Check. Early uncredited appearance by legendary sex kitten? Check.

I could go on but you get the idea. This one is truly packed with entertainment value. Plus it is actually an interesting document of that era (besides the laughs), and last but not least, it delivers the goods skin-wise too.

It took me a while to finally decide to purchase this piece of junk DVD. Only then I purchased it because the cost went down to almost what it's actually worth, and because you can't rent it on Netflix. Now, I wanna kick myself further because the cost is now even lower than what I paid--$14 total (including shipping). Now I see it's available used for about $10 if you include shipping. Probably I would recommend paying less than $10 and only then if you're curious.

If you're buying this for reasons most of us do not buy it for, as a study of the early 70's sexual revolution with a lot of figures, statistics, and historical comparisons thrown in, you're probably getting more for your money than the majority, who are buying it for good adult film entertainment, with the nonsensical educational elements thrown into it for extra entertainment!

Simply put, this video is just what you'd expect it to be. Mediocre looking models appearing in sex scenes not more than 5 minutes in length, practically everyone in the movie looking like they spent years on heavy drugs. Perhaps the film's only good scene is the one of the Doctor examining the nude girl on the table, but even that one isn't so good, because as stated before, the scene is only like 5 minutes long and is too over edited with very limited camera views.

Buy is piece of junk if you're curious, but I'd recommend paying under $10.00 total. Do not be fooled by the picture on the box! It's a complete deception! (As pictures on boxes usually are.)

I wonder if anyone can recommend a film of this sort that actually doesn't suck!!!

I won't admit to having a collection of porno, maybe I don't? This was one a long time ago. I love these kinds of movies that are a time capsule of the evolution of sex. Back in the day young people believed there was a future for this society and that sex was the vehicle for personal and cultural transformation. Wow how naive. A couple of wars later sex is and looks meaner and "trimmer"?. And it's funny too see people way back when trying to have sex, But they just make love. Yes they're nude and we can see hard ons and intercourse but really it's not a turn-on. Alas there is no fear or intimidation, whats the point. Maybe I'm jaded because of my non-existent pornos. But it's like being The best man at my friends wedding, Im just looking at him thinking: You poor fool. Fantastic scene with a "Doctor" that is giving his patient her first orgasm. Funny how she re-emerges througout the movie in other scenes. I guess he really jump-started her? Charming movie. Back in the day I doubt a girl would go out with me twice due to my compulsive need for a razor.
