In this well-crafted and surprisingly raunchy '70s British sex film, a place of healing offers its clients all kinds of extras for the right fee. The kinky clinic is run by the archetypal boss-bitch menacingly played by Georgina Ward who, aside from conventional sex, offers her richer clients spankings and lashings which come in handy later when she blackmails them. However, a wealthy lesbian begins an affair with Ward - and her son soon turns up looking for her, turning the place upside down. Featuring a hot cult cast including Maria Coyne (Virgin Witch), Windsor Davies (It Ain't Half Hot Mum), and Carmen Silvera ('Allo 'Allo), this saucy tale of lust and revenge comes from director Don Chaffey, best known for more wholesome fare like One Million Years B.C. and Jason and the Argonauts.

True enough, it's sexploitation, and there is an abundance of female nudity--mostly toplessness and mostly from stunningly gorgeous leading lady Georgina Ward. The sexual themes permeate everything and most of it is fetishism. But there is an incredibly mature approach to the subject matter that the title just doesn't suggest.
And for that reason, this movie (a British production from 1971) was way, way ahead of it's time. I'm convinced that the exact same story could be released today as a major motion picture and do incredibly well at the box office.
That story centers around a sex therapist (before there were such things--female, at that) who gives very hands-on treatment to her patients. She's very successful, but a big schemer who, after getting them addicted to her methods, hustles the most wealthy among them for huge lots of cash.
Eventually this becomes a problem for her, leading to a cleverly-written twist ending that will make you think that "Sex Clinic" is a lost Alfred Hitchcock film. It's really that good.
As sexploitation it's not very exploitive, but as entertainment it's a great flick and totally worth a look.
