The Harrad Experiment

Or 'Gidget Meets Masters and Johnson'. Set in an American co-ed college where the pupils are taught self-discovery through sex and (discreet) nudity, the film merges teen romance and sexposé so beguilingly that it ends up as one of the most amusing Hollywood romps since Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. The sexual agonies and dilemmas are straight out of True Romances, and frequently crass; but occasionally they have a lurid authenticity, and Post, who employs long, voyeuristic takes, reveals more gusto here than one would ever have thought possible from his previous work. The film, with its incredibly awful theme song and old-fashioned conception of sexological research, well deserves the cult success it had in America.
