This documentary explores assorted "forbidden" topics from all over the world. Among the subjects depicted herein are a racy TV commercial for a female martial arts school, rowdy teenagers protesting a strict curfew on the Sunset Strip, an underground lesbian club in Geneva, a portable topless bar, and various strip acts from different parts of the globe.   

Director Lee Frost was one of the all-time great drive-in grindhouse filmmakers who made everything from biker flicks to blaxploitation items to hicksploitation outings throughout the course of his remarkable career. Frost churned out more than his fair share of mondo documentaries as well. This wild, racy, and snappy number rates highly as one of Frost's finest and most entertaining entries in this particular beloved exploitation sub-genre. Among the topics addressed herein are a terrifically trashy commercial for a karate school complete with a nasty would-be rapist and a hot chick taking a shower, a portable topless bar, an underground lesbian club in Geneva where two gorgeous gals get it on with each other as part of an initiation ritual, rowdy teenagers protesting a strict curfew on the Sunset Strip, a middle-aged Swedish woman killing both her husband and his younger mistress in a grisly automobile accident, and a French femme fatale who murdered three guys in order to get a man she was smitten with closer to her. The footage on strip clubs and their often bizarre customs all over the world is especially choice stuff: a risqué Paris nightclub, sexy Brussels strippers, virgin strippers at some posh high-class London club, and, best of all, Nazi strippers in East Berlin whose acts have heavy political overtones. Naturally, there's an absurdly solemn narrator relating lots of rather dubious "facts" throughout. The neatly varied score includes some sweet bluesy wailing and an insanely rippin' surf-rock instrumental. Of course, there's a wondrous plethora of tasty female nudity on constant parade as well. The sharp cinematography alternates between bold color and crisp black and white. At a brisk 65 minutes this flick is never dull and races along at a ceaseless speedy clip. A total pip.
