Commuter Husbands (1973)

Six different stories are presented in this 1973 British sexploitation anthology – a companion piece to Suburban Wives (1971) – narrated by the beautiful Gabrielle Drake (who unfortunately keeps her kit on) from the Penthouse Club in London.

The first tale – about husband Dennis (Robin Bailey) and his wife (Heather Chasen) having separate affairs and ending up booking into the same place (“this lovely hotel down by the river”) – is staid and obvious, lacking the simple fun of the other stories.


The second story features Dick Haydon as a plumber who gets called to fix a problem at the penthouse home of a posh Frenchwoman (Claire Gordon) where there’s a swingers party going down.

Then there’s a segment about a man (Mike Britton) who fantasises he’s chasing naked women around – including the gorgeous Nicola Austin – on a motorbike, a trip to Amsterdam, and finally the story of an ageing Peeping Tom.
