5 Stars --Planetout.com

The sleaziest lesbosploitation film ever made. --Ellen Spiro, Out Magazine

Product Description

That Tender Touch focuses on the twisted break up of lesbian lovers Marsha (Bea Tompkins) and Terri (Sue Bernard) who share a contented life together before dissatisfaction invades their Southern California wood-paneled apartment and Terri runs off to have a normal suburban married life with Ken. But poor Marsha can t quite let go. When she shows up destitute on Ken and Terri s doorstep they agree to let her stay with them. Suddenly it seems every female in the neighborhood is hot for Marsha the neighbor lady and her precocious teenage daughter and the sexy British maid. But Marsha only has eyes for Terri.

Described by Variety as One more variation on the Lesbian thing, this wildly entertaining melodrama stars minor cult figure Sue Bernard as Terri (Bernard was Playboy's Miss December 1966 and co-star of the Russ Meyer classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!). Bea Tompkins plays the lesbian ex-lover and babe-magnet, Marsha.

Format: DVD
When a sophisticated woman named Marcia, befriends a younger, emotionally wounded woman, their relationship blossoms into a love affair. The plot premise revolves around the problems in their lesbian relationship, when the younger woman, named Terry, decides to marry a man. Once Terry is married, she has trouble adjusting to sexual intimacy with her husband.

Meanwhile, Marcia (played with a sullen earnestness by Bee Tompkins) shows up at the home of Terry and her new husband. Seems that Marcia has lost her job, and needs a place to stay, until she can recover financially. While there, Marcia tries in vain to win back Terry's love. As Marcia becomes more desperate in her attempts at reconciliation with Terry, Marcia suffers a psychological collapse, with tragic consequences.

Homophobia was rampant in society, when this film was made in 1969. And so this film has strong negative assumptions, regarding lesbianism. The attitude typically held by mainstream society, was that all a lesbian needed was a good man, to cure her of her 'abnormal' sexual desires. That Tender Touch reeks with that kind of moralistic, homophobic tone.

Thankfully, things have improved markedly for the lesbian community, since 1969. This movie could be recommended as a historical reference, so that today's lesbians can see how far we've come, in terms of social acceptance. Otherwise, this film is overly melodramatic, and a bit depressing.

I don't even know what this movie is about. I'd seen it years ago, remembered that it was silly but in that exploitation from another country way and watched it again when it popped up on Amazon. OMG - this is terrible. If MST could do this type of movie then it would be watchable but it has not story, the dubbing sounds like the mikes on an inch from their mouths, and if it's sexploitation you are after, it isn't really happening here. Silly and waste of time, didn't watch much, sort of did housework while it was on.
