Another of the
161 Jess Franco films, Tender Flesh stars Monique
Parent, Amber Newman, Analia Ivars, and his wife,
Lina Romay who is a very good looking 43 in this
film. The plot, such as it is, is about a
stripper (Amber) who is hired by a wealthy
countess/madam (Romay) and is taken to her
private island for a weekend of fun and games
paid for by Ivars. The fun and games include
B&D, S&M, lesbianism, and much more.
There is also a very bizarre ending.
Franco, in addition to well lit full nudity
and beautiful scenery, included some camera
effects in some of the nude scenes, and some
unusual lighting. This film is clearly soft-core
porn, but it not like its US equivalent. The
content is far stranger, the sets more
interesting, and the nudity more sensuous. Franco
fans say this might be his best film. IF you are
looking for great bodies doing lots of things to
each other, and a well-photographed film, this
might be for you. If you are in the mood for a
story, look elsewhere.

Scoop wrote an excellent review of
Knightriders (see July 23, 2000 in the back
issues). As a matter of fact, that is why I
bought the DVD. I find that I agree with nearly
everything he said. While it is a little too
long, it is a VERY good film. My one area of
disagreement with Scoopy is his statement that he
could have done without the exposure by Maureen
Sadusk. While she is many years (and at least as
many pounds) past her prime, she brought
enthusiasm and a strong sense of erotic,
hedonistic abandon to the small role that I found
A few facts not mentioned by Scoopy -- Stephen
King and his wife appeared as Hogie Man and
Hogie Man's Wife in a crowd scene. It was his
first and her only film appearance. The parallels
between this film and the Arthurian legends
extended even as far as having a Lancelot-like
character who has a thing for the queen. The film
was released the same year as Excalibur, and Time
called Knightriders a better film. The DVD is
side-boxed (black space left and right) to
preserve the original aspect ration, and is a
good transfer with good color saturation. For an
indie, it has amazing costumes, stunts and score.
The DVD contains a feature length commentary with
many of the cast and crew. As Scoop said,
"It's a unique and worthwhile picture that
is must viewing for serious film buffs."
Unlike some films where you know you are seeing
something important but can't really relax and
enjoy it, this one is fun to watch.

from TomCat and Johnny Web
is a cinema classic, also known as the Diary of
Forbidden Dreams!!! It was a disaster for Roman
Polanski, as well as some respected performers.
It was supposed to be a ribald comedy, but was so
far off into the surreal that most people found
it to be incomprehensible gibberish, and
suggested that someone spiked Roman's kielbasa
with LSD. Here is TomCat's description:
Sydne travels as a hitch-hiker. The last
driver tries to rape her, so she runs (without
luggage) to the first house she sees. It is a
private boarding house. The owner is an older man
(Marcello Mastroianni in lots of make-up) with a
past as a mafia pimp. The chamber maid gives her
a room. Someone spies on her at night, and her
blouse is stolen. The next day this room is
allocated to other people so she sleeps on an
Italian beach on a cold night. When she wakes up
this time, her bottom clothes have been stolen.
The she has some strange naked and semi-naked
adventures. In the end a dog tears off her
pajamas, getting a little coppertone thing going,
so she is once again naked. She finally runs away
from the house, still completely naked, and jumps
into a truck full of pigs. The end.
We had to give it four stars, however, because
Sydne had a great body and was stark naked in
almost every scene!

Article from the Sun about Posh Spice,
Playboy offers Posh 'n' Becks £200k to pose in
POSH and Becks are considering stripping off
to appear in Playboy. Ibiza is buzzing with the
news that the couple have been offered £200,000
by the top men's mag to pose stark naked.
David and Victoria - who will perform her new
single Out Of Your Mind in the island's Eden club
tonight - met Playboy executives in Los Angeles
to discuss the proposal.
Posh and Becks have been promised a say in who
takes the pictures and how much flesh they show.
The pair would be the second couple to strip off
for the mag. Hollywood stars Melanie Griffith and
Don Johnson posed together ten years ago.
A pal said: "Victoria and David are taking
the offer very seriously and are really
flattered. "But it's important to Victoria
that she has full control. Playboy said they
could cover their bits however they liked."
Victoria has also revealed how she stays so
skinny - she gets plenty of sex! Posh says it's
Becks' fault because she can't stop making love
to him. Her confession came after she was boldly
asked: "Are you so thin because you shag all
day." Posh replied: "Yes, actually. And
I bet you would too if you were married to David

There was one hell of a lot of nudity in this
flick! Although it pretty much bombed at the box
office when it 1st came out, an interesting story
actually goes along with the nudity.
plays a psychiatrist who sets up a hidden camera
and creates a video diary of his own mental
breakdown... as well as his fooling around with
many of his patients. This one offered some
unique collaging opportunities since it was
virtually all filmed from a single camera angle
and the wall facing the camera is a big mirror so
you get a view of everything that's going on even
if the characters are technically
"off-camera" during a scene. In my
personal favorite scene, Sally & Rip are
getting ready to do the big nasty but Sally does
something to piss Rip off and he loses interest.
Sally's still ready to go so she just grabs one
of Rip's legs which she straddles and starts
humping it like a pit bull on a viagra overdose!
Rip Torn gives one of the greatest acting
performances in history IMHO because as she's
doing this, he seems to remain completely bored
with what's happening and finally burns her ass
with a cigarette he's smoking to get her to leave
The pics of Lynn Swan are a bonus. She's
basically a "one-time-wonder" actress
but she was so cute I couldn't resist doing a few
caps of here too... especially since she showed
us her goodies in the film. :)

At 17, Jodie Oram was the youngest. Having
been told she needs bigger breasts, Jodie has
augmentation surgery. We see the bandages coming
off in the first collage. The other model is
Amanda Robbins, a few years older at 21.
We see them at their first joint shoot where,
unfortunately, it rains. This means that they
have to go to a studio in London. This shoot,
along with all the preparations, appears in most
of the collages. As you'll see, some blokes have
a dream job! Both girls appeared in the Daily

Does anybody know what has happened to the
girls in the three years since the show was made?

realizes she doesn't have enough time to go to

is a wilted lettuce leaf, an egg, and a can of
In a panic, she opens the can of cat food, stirs
in the egg, and garnishes it with the lettuce
leaf just as her husband is pulling up. She
greets her husband and then watches in horror as
he sits down to his dinner.
To her surprise, the husband is really enjoying
his dinner. Darling, this is the best dinner you
have made for me in forty years of marriage. You
can make this for me any old day."
Needless to say, every bridge night from then on,
the woman made her husband the same dish. She
told her bridge cronies about it and they were
all horrified. "You're going to kill
him!" they exclaimed.
Two months later, her husband died. The woman
were sitting around the table playing bridge when
one of the cronies said, "You killed him! We

so calmly and play bridge knowing you murdered

One misty Scottish morning a man was driving
through the hills to Inverness. Suddenly out of
the mist, a huge red-haired highlander steps into
the middle of the road. The man is about six foot
three and like a walking wardrobe. He has a huge
red beard and despite the wind, mist and near
freezing temperatures, is wearing only his kilt
and a tweed shirt.
At the roadside there also stands a young women.
She is absolutely beautiful - slim, shapely, fair
complexion....... heart stopping. The car
driver's attention is dragged from the girl when
the highlander opens his car door and drags him
from the seat onto the road.
"Right, you," he shouts, "I want
you to masturbate!"
"But......" stammers the driver,
"Now...or I'll bloody kill you!"
So the driver turns his back on the girl, drops
his trousers and starts to masturbate. Thinking
of the girl on the roadside this only takes a few
"Right" says the highlander "Do it
"But....." says the driver.
So the driver does it again.
"Right, do it again!" demands the
This goes on for nearly two hours. The driver has
cramps in both arms, he has rubbed himself raw,
and despite the mist and wind, has collapsed in a
sweating jibbering heap on the ground, unable to
"Do it again!" says the highlander.
"I just can't anymore - you'll just have to
kill me", whimpers the man.
The highlander looks down at the pathetic heap
slumped on the roadside. "All right" he
says, "NOW you can give my daughter a lift
Any of you remember studying the different
"laws" in Physics class? These laws are
much more interesting and relevant to my daily
life with cats, plus you don't have to memorize
them, you live and experience them everyday. See
if you agree.
--Law of Inertia:
A cat at rest will tend to remain at rest, unless
acted upon by some outside force, such as the
opening of a cat food can.
--Law of Thermodynamics:
Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except
in the case of a cat, in which all heat flows to
--Law of Dinner Table Attendance:
Cats must attend all meals when anything good is
--Law of Cat Magnetism:
All black sweaters and blue blazers attract cat
hair in direct proportion to the darkness of the
--Law of Rug Configuration:
No rug may remain in its naturally flat state for
--First Law of Energy Conservation:
Cats know that energy is neither created nor
destroyed and will, therefore, use as little of
it as possible.
--Second Law of Energy Conservation:
Cats also know that energy can only be stored by
a lot of napping.
--Law of Random Comfort Seeking:
A cat will always seek, and usually take over,
the most comfortable spot in any given room.
--Law of Bag and Box Occupancy:
All bags and boxes in a given room must contain a
cat within the earliest possible nanosecond.
--The Law of Furniture Replacement:
A cat's desire to scratch the furniture is
directly proportional to the cost of the
--Law of Cat Elongation:
A cat can make her body long enough to reach just
about any countertop that has anything remotely
interesting on it.
