ABC of Love and Sex: Australia Style, The (1978)

This Australian semi-documentary presented (most of) the letters of the alphabet and discussed sexual subjects beginning with the corresponding letter – eg: B for Birth, H for Homosexual, O for Orgasm etc – with a Swedish “sexologist” (Maj-Brith Bergström-Walan) throwing in her opinion for good measure.

It’s basically just an excuse for a softcore porn film and copious amounts of nudity.

The segments in full are: A: Anatomy; B: Birth; C: Contraception; D: Dreams; E: Erotic & Erogenous Zones; F: Fun; G: Genitals; H: Homosexual; I: Innocence & Ignorance; J: Jealousy; K: Kiss; L: Love; M: Masturbation & Masochism; N: Natural or Normal; O: Orgasm; P: Pornography; R: Rape; S: Seduction; T: Temptation; U: Understanding; W: Words; X: eXcellence; Y: You. Three letters of the alphabet – Q, V and Z – had no corresponding segment.

Watch out for John Michael “Hollywood” Howson in a brief cameo as a gay party crasher in leatherman clobber.
