Does anyone know anything about the glut of 1970s British sex comedies?
With an increasing number of DVD releases bringing some of these trashy films to attention once more, we're currently trying to work out where the line between porn and comedy is drawn, and thus what we should be covering on this website.
There are obvious examples, such as Robin Askwith's Confessions Of... series that I'm quite sure anyone would expect to find on a comedy reference website, but then there are others that I've seen nothing of, heard little more about, and consequently don't know whether they're actually worth us covering or not.
For example, the following handful of titles are listed by the ever authoritative (ahem) IMDb as 'comedy' and having UK production. The cast of some also lend weight to the comedy label, but other plot outlines, reviews and details are less than convincing that some aren't just plain soft porn:
If anyone has any information or knows anything about those titles, or any similar productions (there appear to be dozens - every time I start looking, I discover new ones), I'd be extremely grateful to hear from you. Pathetic smutty jokers (sootyj and your ilk, this means you) need not reply.
