Women Behind Barsi is one of those. You know what I mean even before you see the naked (and pertly cute) butt under the whip. You know what I mean the moment you hear the untrained voices sliding strangely all over the place - are they declaiming, asking a question or just being Welsh ?! You know what I mean the moment you see the "Prison Warden" meet four new girlies in the lobby of a family house, and then chatting one up like a shy out of work actor at some middle-of-the-road bar.
Low production values all around mean one thing and one thing only : one of those films that's honest about cocks, cunts and what people do with them. (Tho in this case it takes about forty minutes of absolute nonsense to get to that point - and the whipper is incredibly incompetent, half the blows land on the girl's kidneys it seems.)
Two girls fuck, and you've never seen something this amusingly divorced from the reality of girls fucking in your life, unless of course you've been watching the porn of the period (you know, back when it was called porn-o, like right-o). They touch, like, at the shoulders. On the other hand, the head-on-bosom appology opener is common and quite natural, so we can't say the whole scene's fucked up. Just the actual part.
There's also a little bit of vaginal electrification, and Lina Romay screams with the best of them.
And that's about all.———
