Refinements In Love
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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!

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.
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!!!

Sorry, but my review title says it all. Video just not worth it, except for maybe the last 10 minutes.Published on November 21, 2009 by GemKB
