Raunchy Teen-Sex, Sexploitation Comedies of the 1980s (1981-1989): Overview

The 1980s era of teen sexploitation films actually began in the mid-to-late 1970s and then extended into the early 1980s. Films such as the following provide a few examples of earlier similar films (described in their respective years). :

  • The Harrad Experiment (1973)
  • Candy Stripe Nurses (1974)
  • Smile (1975)
  • Slumber Party "57" (1976)
  • Animal House (1978)
  • Malibu Beach (1978)
  • H.O.T.S. (1979)
  • The Hollywood Knights (1980)
  • Little Darlings (1980)

The mid-to-late 70s and early 80s inaugurated a period of low-brow, teasy, R-rated sexy, US-made teen comedies (horror films not usually included) with gratuitous nudity, mindlessly weak plots, and raunchy profanity, designed for horny adolescents. The target audience was usually teenaged males with raging hormones and active fantasy lives who were looking for glimpses of naked girls and their first sexual conquest (a "Let's Get Laid" sub-genre).

See also Entertainment Weekly's 50 Best High School Movies.

The smarmy trend signaled that theatrical films originally made for 'dirty old men' were now targeted at teenagers, with comedic laughs often directed at the semi-naked young stars. There were many representative films of varying quality (some are described more fully in their respective years).

Balancing out the mostly R-rated teen-sex comedies were some of writer-producer-director John Hughes' films which took a more sensitive look at adolescent issues, in films such as Sixteen Candles (1984), The Breakfast Club (1985), and Pretty in Pink (1986).

Other more realistic teenage-oriented films included Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982), Tex (1982) with Matt Dillon, Baby, It's You (1983) with Rosanna Arquette, and director Martha Coolidge's Valley Girl (1983) with Nicolas Cage and Deborah Foreman.

Tagline: "The Bedroom is a Fun Classroom - EMMANUELLE's Star is the Teacher."

Nicole (Sylvia Kristel)
Stripes (1981)

This ribald, non-PC military boot camp comedy from director Ivan Reitman featured the taglines:

  • "The Story of a Man Who Wanted to Keep the World Safe for Democracy...and Meet Girls"
  • "Today's army needs men of courage... honesty... integrity... ambition. Instead, they got John Winger"

The R-rated comedy followed the fish-out-of-water exploits of three new US Army enlistees, similar to the training of rookie recruits in Private Benjamin (1980) and Police Academy (1984):

  • John Winger (Bill Murray, after appearances in Meatballs (1979) and Caddyshack (1980)), a hapless loser and miserable cab driver, a sarcastic wise-ass
  • Russell Ziskey (Harold Ramis), Winger's best friend - and an incompetent teacher of English as a second language to immigrants
  • Dewey "Ox" Oxberger (John Candy in a breakthrough role), an overweight army recruit

Soles), a sexy military police officer, along with MP Stella Hansen (Sean Young).

Linda (Phoebe Cates)
Goin' All the Way! (1982)

Directed by Robert Freedman, this was another coming-of-age teen comedy-drama set at Riverdale High. Its taglines were:

  • "Sometimes There's Only One Thing on Your Mind..."
  • "Monica is Holding Out, But He's Holding On"
  • "The Funniest Movie About Growing Up Since 'Porky's'!"

It was about various teens who attended the same school as seniors and were competing for attention and looking for sex:

  • Artie Mulligan (Dan Waldman), a sexually-frustrated blonde hunk
  • Monica Carr (Deborah Van Rhyn), a brunette, virginal, prudish and reluctant to go "all the way" with boyfriend Artie
  • Reggie Weis (Joe Colligan), Artie's scheming and joking best-buddy, employed at the malt shop; the boyfriend/sex-partner of Wendy (Sylvia Summers) who was naive about sex
  • Betty Jo "BJ" (Eileen Davidson in her debut film), Monica's confidante and girlfriend
  • Candy Hardin (Sherrie Miller), a cute, slutty and flirtatious classmate who made Monica jealous

In the opening sequence when Artie and Monica were making out in a parked car in his parents' garage, she refused to go any further because she said she was scared of getting pregnant. He asked her with a frustrated tone why she was hesitant and scared:

Monica: "Artie, I just can't."
Artie: "Why not?"
Monica: "I don't know."
Artie: "Is it my breath?...Well, do I have BO or somethin'?...Well then, what?...Oh, I know, it's because I don't have a thing, right?...You know, a thing for my thing...S--t, there's some Saran Wrap in the kitchen. That's always good in a pinch."
Monica: "I can't believe you sometimes."

Monica was uptight about sex and didn't want to be rushed ("Don't rush me, OK?"), and it was causing Artie to complain about having "blue balls." At school the next day, as Artie touched a nude centerfold taped inside of his locker, he told his friend Reggie: "Monica will come through, Reg, I know she will. It's just a matter of time." At the same time, Reggie was crossing out days on a calendar: "Wendy's late with her period again. Looks like I'm gonna have to break up with her." In class to his relief, Wendy passed him a note: "You're in Luck. Nature Struck!"

Student (Gina Calabrase)

There were views of a female weightlifting team (led by tough dyke-like Boom Boom (Rachel Spooner)), and an aerobics class with Monica next to her friend Betty Jo "BJ" (Eileen Davidson, who later starred in The House on Sorority Row (1983)) doing gyrating hip swivels and leg lifts (and butt crunches). During gym class as they spied upon the aerobics participants, Reggie and Artie continued their conversation about 'doin' it':

Artie: "If Monica doesn't go all the way soon, I don't know what I'm gonna do."
Reggie: "Oh, you do what I do. You don't take no for an answer."

The exercise session was followed by an extended nude shower scene among the females. The topless females talked about having sex, and shouted advice to Monica:

BJ: "So Monica, how far did you let Artie go this time?"
Wendy: "Yeah, Monica, how far did you let Artie go?"
Student: "You can go as far as you want with me anytime."
Monica: "It's personal, you guys."
BJ: "Come on, Monica. I'd tell you."
Monica: "Don't I know it."
BJ: "Still scared, huh?"
Monica: "Oh, it's getting worse. Why does it have to seem so necessary? I only wish I was sure about him."
BJ: "Does he know you've never done it yet?"
Monica: "Why, do you think I should tell him?"
BJ: "Oh, God no, are you kidding? God, guys like girls that are experienced."
Monica: "I thought they all wanted virgins."
BJ: "That too. Face it. I just don't know what they want. It's up to us to tell 'em."

During another memorable scene, BJ phoned Monica and asked her advice about the size of her breasts:

BJ: (while lifting up her shirt and fondling herself) "Hey, do you think my boobs are getting any bigger?...I've been trying positive thinking. Do you think I should send away for one of those bust developers?"
Monica: (suggesting) "Why don't you try a padded bra?"
BJ: "Oh Monica, you know that bras give me a rash."

As a "works-everytime" ploy to get Monica to go to bed with him, Artie rented a TraveLodge motel room, but she rejected his offer - believing he was treating her "like a whore" and that he was sex-obsessed. She broke up with him with a devastating accusation: "If you need it so bad, why don't you go stick it in Candy Hardin?"

In a major (and very unlikely and unfunny) pick-up sex sequence the next evening, Reggie and Artie were confronted by a pair of girls in a VW convertible - and to their surprise the short-haired driver enticingly stripped off her top. They drove to a deserted parking area where the topless driver joined Reggie in his car, where they shared a beer in the backseat and she urged: "Let's f--k!", while Artie was in the VW's back-seat making-out with her blonde friend who opened her blouse and urged him to touch and kiss her breasts. But then Reggie shouted out to his dismay:

"This girl's got balls!"

Shortly later, Artie received a phone call from cute school classmate Candy Hardin from her bathtub and she invited him over. As he pedaled over to her house, he daydreamed about having sex with her once he arrived. He imagined that when she greeted him at her door, she claimed she was "not ready yet" but kissed him anyway, and then removed her white silky negligee in front of him while purring: "There's something I want to show you." When he actually arrived and she opened the door, she was wearing a black negligee: "I thought you'd never get here. You don't know how long I've waited for this moment." She passionately kissed him, and then unzipped his fly while suggesting: "And there's another thing I've been dying to do." Unfortunately, both greetings were only fantasies in Artie's head. When he arrived in reality, classmate hunk Bronk (Josh Cadman), Candy's hunk boyfriend answered the door and prevented any sort of rendezvous between them.

There were also visits to a malt shop where Reggie worked, an evening in an old fashioned roller-skating rink-arena, female mud-wrestling and bikini dancing at Hollywood Tropicana, a pool party prefaced by Wendy, Monica, BJ and Candy watching an old-fashioned VHS porn tape ("Talk Dirty to Me"), a sub-plot about a songwriter named Roger Jackson (Dan Woren) who briefly attracted Monica's romantic attention, a sex-crazed date between Boom Boom and Bronk, and a climactic Sadie Hawkins dance, etc.

As the film concluded at the dance, Monica and Artie (who were "meant for each other") had come with different dates, but nevertheless wanted to be with each other. After Bronk was vengefully beaten up by Boom Boom's female muscle-buddies, Artie stranded his date Candy to displace Roger after calling Monica "my girl." Roger decided to hook up with BJ who was available, while outside in Artie's car, Monica was finally ready and willing to have sex with him:

Artie: "Boy, what a night, huh?"
Monica: "It's probably the best night of my life."

When he started to apologize for his temporary dating interest in Candy, she just wanted romance with him at long last: "Artie Mulligan, you big dope. Will you just shut up and kiss me?" Then after a passionate kiss, she proposed a further idea: "I've got a better idea. Let's go all the way" - as No Time Like Now played in the background.

Karen (Diane Franklin)
Porky's (1982)

Tagline: "You'll Be Glad You Came!"

[See full description in year 1982]

This film was considered the first major example of the vulgar sex comedies of the early Reagan era, with its memorable voyeuristic locker room scene. There were two sequels that followed:


Porky's (1982)

Porky's II: The Next Day (1983)

Porky's Revenge (1985) (aka Porky's 3)

Notorious Locker Room Scene
Zapped! (1982)

Director Robert J. Rosenthal's fantasy teen sex comedy was similar to Brian De Palma's horror thriller Carrie (1976), mixed with Star Trek and Porky's (1981). It was followed by the awful sequel Zapped Again! (1990). Its taglines were:

  • "They're Getting a Little Behind in Their Classwork"
  • "The Comedy That Won't Let You Down"

The teen-oriented modest hit was set at Ralph Waldo Emerson HS, with prominent characters, including:

  • Peyton Nichols (Willie Aames), a yearbook photographer with a supply of condoms packed in his home photo studio
  • Barney Springboro (Scott Baio, a Happy Days star as Fonzie's younger cousin Chachi), a bookish, science student nerd with thick glasses
  • Bernadette (Felice Schachter), a pretty, also nerdy school newspaper reporter, dating Barney
  • Jane Mitchell (unknown star Heather Thomas, later in the TV show The Fall Guy), a popular, mean, and snobby blonde cheerleader
  • Robert Wolcott (Greg Bradford), Jane's handsome, stuck-up, frat-boy college-aged boyfriend, attending Tee Winkle College

Peyton Nichols (Willie Aames)

Bernadette (Felice Schachter)

During a failed science experiment with mice and efforts to make marijuana grow faster and stronger, Barney accidentally acquired the powers of telekinesis, levitation, and the ability to animate and manipulate various objects. He didn't realize the power he was able to wield, until one day Barney (with Peyton) used his power at school to burst open her pink cardigan to reveal her pink bra underneath, and embarrass her in front of her college frat boyfriend Robert. .

He was also able to manipulate a win for the HS' underdog baseball team coached by Dexter Jones (Scatman Crothers), fight off bullies, and help Peyton win a drinking contest against Robert during the senior class' amusement park trip. He even competed against a rigged roulette game during a frat-party when Robert attempted to win back his lost wagered money from Peyton. Barney's overpowering levitation of the roulette wheel backfired and destroyed the entire table.

Peyton was also competing for Jane's attention, and was able for one night to seduce her in his photographic studio - (and take an incriminating nude photo of her), by tempting her with flowery talk about his successful financial future. The next day, she denounced him: "Look, whatever happened last night, I faked every bit of it." He quipped back: "That's why it was so good."

Later in the climactic prom scene in the school gym (with the theme "This Must Be Heaven"), after Peyton and Jane were crowned prom King and Queen, Jane deserted Peyton on the dance floor. Peyton decided to incite and enrage both Jane and Robert by showing them Jane's nude photograph (in a packet of photos from his "personal collection") that he had taken of her during his earlier seduction of her:

"A Portrait of the Queen, Collector's Item - Limited Edition."

Angered, Robert was about to punch Peyton in the face when, in a parody of Carrie (1976), Barney decided to assist his buddy. He stared at Jane's chest and used his powers to strip off the top of Jane's pink gown to embarrass her and reveal her breasts (presumably a body-double). Barney also propelled Robert and his pals backwards, causing him to crash into a table. Jane retaliated and threw a slice of watermelon at Barney, hitting him in the head and disorienting him. His dizziness caused him to remove the bottom of Jane's gown and cause her more discomfort and humiliation - and she ran off.

With his powers of telekinesis, Barney also summoned a gust of wind that tore off the clothes of dozens of students (including a redhead (Jeanette Linne) in a white thong) and sent everybody running to cover up. The blow to Barney's head seemed to remove his super-powers, as Bernadette realized that it "must have shifted things back to normal." Barney also mused: "No more exploding clothes for the telekinetic kid" - although in fact, he still retained his magical powers - evidenced when he whisked Bernadette away in a bluish-sparkling cloud.

Year 1983
 
Class (1983)

Director Lewis John Carlino's compelling prep-school comedy-drama was one of many controversial films of the era about a torrid coupling between a younger student and an older woman. The pre-Brat Pack film could be described as a cross between The Graduate (1967), Animal House (1978) and Summer of '42 (1971), and a reversal of the genders in Blame It on Rio (1984). Its tagline was:

  • "The Good News is, Jonathan's Having his First Affair. The Bad News is, She's his Roommate's Mother!"

In this case, naive male teenaged prep school senior-high school student Jonathan Ogner (Andrew McCarthy) was schooled in sex (during a dalliance in Chicago) by older, alcoholic temptress Mrs. Ellen Burroughs (Jacqueline Bisset), his roommate Skip's (Rob Lowe) mother - who was unhappily married to Mr. Burroughs (Cliff Robertson).

The major scene for the boyish student was a hotel elevator seduction by Mrs. Burroughs, followed by bedroom love-making - and the surprise and crucial plot twist of their love affair was inexplicably revealed in the film's tagline and trailer.

Lisa (Virginia Madsen) Embarrassingly Disrobed While Serving Sandwiches

It featured many future stars in their cinematic debuts (McCarthy, Madsen, and John Cusack), including:

  • Skip (Rob Lowe), Jonathan's prep-school roommate
  • Roscoe (John Cusack) and Julia (Joan Cusack)
  • 1st Girl in Motel (Lolita Davidovich)
  • Lisa (future Oscar-winner Virginia Madsen), one of two girls at a nearby all-girls school who Jonathan once nervously dated and vomited upon, and then later was partially disrobed in an accident while serving sandwiches to a group of students

Taglines: "It's Always the Wildest!" and "Can you think of a better reason for going to summer camp?"

Dreamgirl (Sheila Kennedy)
Getting It On! (1983) (aka American Voyeur)

Writer/director William Olsen's teen sexploitation film was about another sexually-starved male protagonist, whose circumstances provided a number of topless females, tame sex scenes and instances of voyeurism. Its taglines were:

  • "Don't Miss the Stripped Down Fun and Hot-Wired Action"
  • "It's the funniest, sexiest, craziest comedy around!!"

It told about a horny and voyeuristic teenager Alex Carson (Martin Yost) with binoculars, who made a business out of spying on neighbors (females) and renting out video equipment. He had a huge crush on girl-next-door neighbor Sally Clark (Heather Kennedy), and began his profitable enterprise by videotaping her.

The teen film had prescient scenes that featured spy cams, and a plot to retaliate against Principal White (C.K. Bippy) of the school who was threatening to expel Alex's best friend Nick Byers (Jeff Edmond).

During a school assembly, Nick was responsible for airing a home video of the principal's daughter, Marilyn White (Kathy Brickmeier) having sex with Nick's brother.

In the midst of everything, there was a superfluous dorm room pillow-fight (with partial nudity) with unidentified students (Suzan Greene, Brenda Jarrott, Denise Linville, and Marion Roberson).



Prostitute (Kim Saunders)

Marilyn White (Kathy Brickmeier), The Principal's Daughter
Joysticks (1983)

With a sly film title, it referred to gigantic game-sticks in Jeff Bailey's videogame arcade - a gaming craze that was resurrected with the Pac-Man addiction in the early 1980s. Its tagline was:

  • "More Fun Than Games"

The plot centered around the threatened closing of the establishment by disgruntled parent and local businessman Joseph Rutter (Joe Don Baker). One of the film's inspirations was to have gobbling Pac-Men provide the camera-screen wipes.

Nerdy Eugene Groebe (Leif Green) was employed at a video arcade run by the ultra-cool stud Jeff Bailey (Scott McGinnis). In the first scene, Eugene was propositioned by two party girls, Lola (Playboy Playmate Kym Malin) and Alva (Kim Michel), who dropped their tops in front of him in their convertible, as part of a sorority initiation prank - so they could take a Polaroid picture of his "manhood."

Sexual Shenanigans

The arcade was populated by eccentrics, a punk rock band led by King Vidiot (Jonathan Gries), a Latino gang, and party girls. Lola and Alva played video arcade games topless with Jeff in the back room - including a close-up of Lola's breasts jiggling as she wiggled with excitement, before they jumped on a bed. There were other shenanigans, such as hot-tubbing in the back of a van.

Lola (Kym Malin)
Losin' It (1983)

Directed by Curtis Hanson (before L.A. Confidential (1997)), this teen comedy told about four California high-schoolers in the mid-1960s:

  • Woody (Tom Cruise)
  • Dave (Jackie Earle Haley)
  • Spider (John Stockwell)
  • Wendell (John P. Navin, Jr.)

Its tagline was:

  • "The Last Word About the First Time"

The four teens crossed the border to Tijuana in a convertible to find hookers, drink and to 'lose it'. Instead, they found and accompanied runaway, divorce-seeking housewife Kathy (Shelley Long).

The guys' first stop was a strip-show (with nudity), followed by Dave's encounter with a whore (Victoria Wells) - the others also scored with Woody's whore (Laura James) and Spider's whore (Martha E. Martinez).

The whole production was fairly chaste, however, although Woody and Kathy had sex together in a motel room.

Dave's Whore (Victoria Wells)
My Tutor (1983)

My Tutor (1983) was semi-scandalous for its teacher-student relationship - a common theme of the era - in which a seductive older woman romanced a younger boy.

Its tagline was:

  • "School's Out...But Bobby's Education Has Just Begun"

Similar to the theme of the popular Private Lessons (1981), this copy-cat film told about a young senior high school student Bobby Chrystal (Matt Lattanzi, Olivia Newton John's ex-husband, a former Xanadu dancer) who was amorously tutored in "French" by live-in 30 year-old blonde Terry Green (Caren Kaye).

My Tutor - Terry Green (Caren Kaye)

She enjoyed nightly moonlit skinny-dips in the family pool - and she bedded him down by the end of the film.

It also co-starred Russ Meyer's favorite big-breasted Kitten Natividad as hooker Ana Maria, and Graem McGavin as slutty waitress Sylvia.

Purity Busch (Linda Speciale)
Spring Break (1983)

Director Sean S. Cunningham's romantic comedy was another film about escapades of sex/sun in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for two sets of college-aged guys.

Its tagline was:

  • "Like It's Really, Totally, the Most Fun a Couple of Bodies Can Have. You Know?"

The two male groups who were forced to share their motel room together in Florida were:

  • Nelson and Adam (David Knell and Perry Lang), a pair of college nerds
  • Stu (Paul Land) and O.T. (Steve Bassett), two studs

It featured all the requisite 'spring break' wet T-shirt and teeny-weenie bikini contests, belly-flop tournaments, overbooked hotel rooms, girls undressing, beer-guzzling, etc.

Michelle (Kristi Somers)
Hot Moves (1984)

Another archetypal coming-of-age teen comedy from director Jim Sotos was about pubescent males at Venice Beach in Southern California attempting to lose their virginity - a rite-of-passage for these late-night guilty pleasure films from the early 80s.

Its tagline was:

  • "The Time Had Come For Some 'Hands-On' Experience"

Before the end of summer break at the start of their senior year, a foursome of inexperienced male friends made a pact to help each other. One of them, Michael was currently unsuccessful with his long-time pretty and sweet girlfriend Julie Ann (Jill Schoelen).

After striking out, they called upon the aid of beach beauty Heidi (Deborah Richter, Miss California 1975), whom they had first spied upon sunbathing naked with two friends. Cult siren and Penthouse Pet Monique Gabrielle was eye-catching as Babs, as was the scene of nude-beach spying with a telescope.

Babs (Monique Gabrielle)

The Party Animal (1984)

This R-rated low-budget (Canadian) exploitation comedy flick was written and directed by David Beaird.

Its tagline was:

  • "A Chemical Reaction Got Him Some Action!"

It told about obnoxious, sex-starved 26 year-old redneck campus "fifth-year freshman"-loser Pondo Sinatra (Matthew Causey in his only starring film role) who was on a quest to get laid. He at first sought the assistance of his roommate - Studly (Timothy Carhart).

In this incoherent, low-brow slapstick Faustian morality tale, he bargained his soul for the loss of his virginity, and received his wish (and more) in his small-town university. Goddess Miranda/Mother Nature (Susanne Ashley) heard his plea for sex, and he was provided with a chemistry lab love potion or aphrodisiac that made him sexually irresistible.

But as with any deal with the devil, he became exhausted from continual sexual pursuit ("I am like King Midas - everything I touch turns to poontang!").

The film featured an amazing, oversized sex rocket (giant dildo named Moby-M5), a three-foot long joint, and a large zip-locked bag of coke for snorting.

Two of the more memorable scenes included:

  • Pondo dressed up as a girl with a hairnet, snuck into a coed dorm and entered a nude slumber party. He convinced the females to play strip high card. Soon, five of them were topless and down to panties only
  • A porn shop scene with a conversation about nuclear war proliferation conducted with dildos used as props




Strip Poker Game
Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

This defining first film was followed by three sequels (two of which were TV movies) about the disenfranchised dorks:

  • Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1987)
  • Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation (1992) (TV)
  • Revenge of the Nerds IV: Nerds in Love (1994) (TV)

Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1987)

Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation (1992) (TV)

Revenge of the Nerds IV: Nerds in Love (1994) (TV)

A typical low-brow Adams College campus 80s comedy had a predictable plot of competition between the underdog brainy computer-science nerds against the brawny jocks fraternity (Alpha Betas) and their rich and bitchy sorority girlfriends at Pi Delta Pi. Its tagline was:

  • "They've Been Laughed At, Picked On and Put Down. But Now It's Time For the Odd to Get Even! Their Time Has Come!"

One of the main goals of the geeks was to spy on, disrobe, and humiliate the pretty coeds. The juvenile antics included setting up surveillance cameras (during a diversionary panty raid) in the Pi Delta Pi bathroom to spy on the beauteous coeds.

Unnamed Pi Delta Pi coed (Colleen Madden) was spied upon by a hidden video camera as she fully undressed. During the spying incident, nerd Booger (Curtis Armstrong) delivered a famous line about the naked coed: "This is bulls--t. I want bush. Pan down. We've got bush!" Takashi (Brian Tochi) often repeated his familiar exclamation: "Oh, Hair pie!"

Pi-Delta-Pi sorority member and blonde cheerleader Betty Childs (Julia Montgomery), girlfriend of the Greek Council President Stan (Ted McGinley), was also peeped upon during a bathroom-shower raid, and photographed (with her nude picture placed on the bottom of a pie plate).

Other tactics included putting 'Liquid Heat' in the jock straps of the studly football players, and a pot-smoking dance party with a sister sorority of overweight misfits (Omega Mu). The geeks of Lambda Lambda Lambda (Tri-Lambs) eventually triumphed by the film's conclusion (with the song "We Are the Champions") at the annual homecoming fraternity decathlon (the Greek games), including riding tiny tricycles in a race, a pie-eating contest, an arm-wrestling contest, and the longest-belching contest.

Spied-Upon Coed (Colleen Madden)
Where the Boys Are '84 (1984)

The first Tri-Star Pictures release, by director Hy Averback, was a poorly-reviewed, non-funny remake of the innocent 1960 film. Lynn-Holly Johnson won the Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress, and the film received four other Razzie nominations, including Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay. Its taglines were:

  • "When Girls Want a Vacation Filled with Fun, Sand, and Romance, They Go to Fort Lauderdale - Where the Boys Are"
  • "Where All Your Dreams Come True"

It told about four college coeds on spring break in Ft. Lauderdale, searching for men:

  • Laurie (Lynn-Holly Johnson), a good-time, ready-to-party girl who was surprised to find herself dating a male prostitute (but expressed disappointment when he stripped for her: "So where's the rest of it? I'll see you in small-claims court")
  • Jennie ( Lisa Hartman), a virginal blonde, forced to choose between two men (a nerdy classical pianist and a rocker)
  • Sandra (Wendy Schaal), a slightly prudish, wealthy and spoiled Southern belle brunette, in love with a Mr. Right cop who arrested and jailed her for drunk and disorderly conduct
  • Carole (Lorna Luft), followed by her jealous steady boyfriend

Included was the requisite "Bootleggers Hot Bod" contest (with some brief nudity), drunken orgies, and a life-sized inflatable male doll named Dave. The blow-up doll exploded after practicing "foreplay" that involved nipple-biting:

"So you start out with a simple kiss...He doesn't have herpes, just kiss him...Body-kissing...Start on the mouth, just pretend he's Richard Gere...Now linger there a minute, and slowly move to the cheek, and it tastes like a combination of suntan oil and rubber...You take your lips on either one of his nipples...now you kiss it, and then, feeling very reckless, you gently, gently, but firmly bite it - She killed him!"

Fraternity Vacation (1985)

This one was a low-budget, stupid and frivolous teen sexploitation film by director James Frawley.

Its tagline was:

  • "Astronomy Major Wendell Tvedt has Studied Galaxies, Charted Planets, and Pondered the Universe. In Palm Springs, He'll Encounter His First Full Moon."

It featured two horny upper-classman fraternity boys from Theta Pi Gamma (at Iowa State University), seen only in black and white:

  • Larry "Mother" Tucker (Tim Robbins in an early role)
  • Joe Gillespie (Cameron Dye)

The two entered into a contest in Palm Springs, California to get laid by scoring (and winning a $1,000 bet with a rival frat) with beautiful and sophisticated blonde poolside coed Ashley Taylor (Sheree J. Wilson) (with a naked body double Roberta Whitehead). They were accompanied by nerdy Wendell Tvedt (Stephen Geoffreys), whose father provided the borrowed condo during the spring break 'fraternity vacation'.

Barbara Crampton as Chrissie and Kathleen Kinmont as Marianne provided the requisite seduction quotient - actually their appearance was a practical joke. They were the two girlfriends of the rival frat group, who acted sexy in bikinis:

Marianne: "Gee, I've always found that four people on a queen-sized bed can be very cozy, haven't you, Chrissy?"
Chrissie: "Marianne and I are best friends."

Then they became nude by slowly stripping (untying each other's bikinis). They pretended to want sex, but then announced that they had herpes.

Out of Control (1985)

Although not specifically a teen-sex comedy, director Allan Holzman's second feature film (after a Roger Corman-produced sci-fi horror film Forbidden World (1982)) was this low-budget survival film shot on location in Yugoslavia. The nearly-forgotten film was released to theatres and to VHS tape in the mid-80s, and didn't have a DVD release until 2017 (in an editorially-revised edition). Its taglines were:

  • They were on the most exciting adventure of their lives. It would end up ... Out of Control.
  • The Plane Crash. The Survival. The Strangers with Guns. 8 High School Students...8 Unexpected Heroes. - It Brings Out the Hero in All of Us.

There was an interesting collection of up-and-coming stars in this incredibly-short and obscure feature:

  • Betsy Russell (who had appeared in the cult teen-sex classic Private School (1983), two more films in 1985: Tomboy (1985) and Avenging Angel (1985), and Cheerleader Camp (1988))
  • Martin Hewitt (who had appeared in the teen romantic drama hit Endless Love (1981) opposite Brooke Shields)
  • Sherilyn Fenn (in one of her earliest B-film appearances before her first starring role in the erotic drama Two Moon Junction (1988))

The film opened with a bizarre opening credits sequence, in which videos of teens ad-libbing and mugging for the camera played under the titles, to the sound of the theme song "Out of Control" sung by the Brothers Johnson. It was revealed to be a student-made "rock video" (by nerdy, bespectacled, and overweight Elliot (Andrew J. Lederer)) that was shown at the festivities surrounding the Seattle-area high school graduation (and prom night) for the class of '84.

In the hurriedly-edited story, eight teens (after the prom) ventured on a seaplane trip to a private island estate (of one of the rich kids) for a "fun-filled weekend of fishing, swimming and sex, and more sex"). Handsome, Prom King, rich-kid Keith Oliver (Martin Hewitt) assured his pretty Prom Queen girlfriend Chrissie Baret (Betsy Russell): "Nothing's gonna ruin our weekend."

However, the plane crash-landed in the ocean due to stormy weather near a rocky, uninhabited island - not their intended destination. (It was hinted that the island might be one of Puget Sound's San Juan Islands.) Chrissie worried: "We could be lost forever." With a deceased pilot George (Bill Farrington), and no real skills (plus most of the teens were still in their fancy prom garb), they were faced with exploring for food and competing alliances. Cowboy (Jim Youngs) and Elliot discovered a backpack full of spam cans and a bottle of vodka that was shared on their first night.

Amidst a game of spin-the-bottle that devolved into a "strip" version (featuring three of the four females becoming naked), there was a stripping competition, of sorts, between Cowboy's current girlfriend Tina and Chrissie, who was challenged: "Come on, Prom Queen, let's see 'em." She slowly but seductively stripped for everyone, and swiveled back and forth. A few moments later, she also volunteered to remove her panties - Keith reacted by covering her with a coat and calling it quits: "It's over."

Chrissie (Betsy Russell) Showing Off In the "Strip" Spin-the-Bottle Game

This was the beginning of a contentious love triangle between troublemaker and loner Cowboy, Cowboy's ex-girlfriend Chrissie, and Keith. Tina and the spiteful Cowboy began to make out, but she was reluctant: "I want it, but not here...I want it to be romantic....I don't want to do it like this." He left her, noticed by Chrissie who was being nuzzled by Keith. Chrissie followed Cowboy and asked him: "Why do you get all tough, put up a wall?" He responded: "I can't depend upon anybody, Chrissie." She claimed she had moved on from him to Keith: "He's good for me." But then Keith found them together giving each other an "innocent kiss." He assaulted Cowboy, but was soundly beaten. Chrissie tried to reassure Keith: "I love you. Cowboy never meant anything to me," but Keith was disbelieving. She kept insisting that they never made love, but only made out, and they were reconciled together.

The next day as Cowboy watched from a hiding place, the group thought they would be rescued after the arrival of a boat, but soon realized the men were dangerous, armed and violent drug smugglers when they were locked up on the boat. During a rape attempt upon Tina, Cowboy appeared, subdued the men, set the boat on fire, and rescued the group. Afterwards, Elliot confessed and hinted to Robin: "I don't want to die a virgin," and she responded to provide him with hope: "I'll sleep on it." Meanwhile, Cowboy and Tina had sex together - to the tune of "There's No Easy Way" sung by James Ingram.

Cowboy with Tina

A second group of three nefarious men arrived on a seaplane and again threatened their lives. Although Cowboy was detained after being wounded and shot in the side, Elliot helped to bravely rescue him. Keith eliminated one of the threatening men by pushing him down into some rocks, while the females fought off another man by shooting him in the leg, and Gary (Richard Kantor) pushed the third man from the plane into the water.

The group was able to eventually board the plane amidst wild gunfire and escape from the island by having Gary, emboldened by Katie, pilot the seaplane and radio for a US Coast Guard rescue.

Paradise Motel (1985) (aka New Kid in Town)

Director Cary Medoway's cheesy, coming-of-age sex comedy told about the sexual adventures of horny teenagers at a motel. Its taglines were:

  • "Where Room Service Comes With More Than a Smile..."
  • "Sam's Father Had the Best Toy A Son Could Ever Use...His New Motel!"

The main male character in the film was:

  • Sam Kehoe (Gary Hershberger), a shy, awkward senior high-schooler newly-arrived in California after moving from Seattle

Sam was thoroughly embarrassed by his father's (Bob Basso) 30-room Hawaiian-themed Paradise Motel (advertised with a pink station wagon and a reclining, waving hula girl mannequin on its rooftop), and its advertising motto: "A Free Lei with Every Stay." It also featured a 'honeymoon suite' mostly frequented by newly-weds (Laurie Smith and John Johnson) - in the film's opening - or other couples who made love all night in the motel room above Sam's room and kept him awake.

Opening Scene of Occupants in 'Honeymoon' Motel Suite

Sam became friends with slick, perpetually-horny and sleazy buddy Mick Thurster (Robert Krantz) in his high school, and also in the cafeteria met the very popular, perfect and beautiful 'dream girl' blonde Laura Phillips (Jonna Leigh Stack)

Mick and his friends had been evicted from their grumpy Coach Martins' (Al Hansen) nap-shack (where the boys had sex with girls). They needed a new locale so Mick befriended the put-upon Sam and convinced him to facilitate their use of the motel's honeymoon suite (Room 19) for sex (similar to the storyline of director Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960)). Sam had just convinced his father to keep the room empty because the moans and squeaky bed noises of fornicating couples in the room kept him up at night. In exchange, the cool guys bribed Sam with free videogames and burgers, and a new group of friends.

One of the first teens to use the motel room with Mick was Debbie Meyers (Colleen McDermott). Sam had just unlocked the room for the couple and helped sneak them into the room. Debbie had already quickly removed her top and appeared coyly topless before Sam was able to leave:

Mick: "How about a little privacy?"
Sam: "I hope you like the room."
Mick: "Aloha, Sam."

Topless sunbathing by the motel's pool the next day, Vicki Meyers (Dena Tencate) yelled out: "Hey guys, who has the suntan lotion?" Eager volunteer Sam rapidly responded to bring the lotion to her when she teasingly asked: "Could you rub some on me?" She then turned and propped herself on one elbow to look up at him (and flash her breasts) as they flirted with each other:

Sam: "Uhm, Vickie...are you doing anything later?"
Vicki: (while giving him a good look at her breasts) "Why, what do you wanna do?"

It was revealed that she was part of a cruel prank and set-up that thoroughly embarrassed Sam with the Coach and his showering wife Betty (Kelly Holland) in their home - Mick's attempt at revenge against the Coach. Afterwards, Vicki still wanted to date Sam and told him after they were dropped off at the motel: "I've never done it in a motel before. Well, maybe once." But their potential sex scene together (presumably off-screen) was skipped over. Meanwhile, Sam was supervising multiple couples to use Room 19 in the motel, including half-dressed "Girl Leaving Room" (Leslee Bremmer, uncredited) who left the motel room after a quickie with her unbuttoned blouse exposing her breasts.

Shortly later, Sam's despicable and conniving 'friend' Mick pretended to help Sam by giving him Palace concert tickets (for an expected date with Laura). Then, the two-timing Mick double-crossed Sam that same evening by convincing Laura (his ex-girlfriend) to accompany him to the motel - causing her to "stiff" Sam and her concert date with him. And furthermore, when Sam returned to the motel, he confirmed that the motel's 'Honeymoon Suite' had been carelessly used by Mick with his date - left behind were his girlfriend's earrings. Sam was briefly reprimanded by his father, who had discovered his deception ("pretty slick operation") about the motel room, due to the lights being on and the door unlocked.

To make up for ditching Sam (using the excuse that she had gotten back together with her ex-boyfriend), Laura agreed to fix him dinner that evening. The same afternoon, Sam's father grilled him: "How long has this been going on?" about the suite. Sam replied: "A couple months." His father wrongly assumed (and was incredulous) that Sam was the sole sex beneficiary - especially after Sam admitted the frequency of intercourse with a lot of different girls: "Every night last week....Yeah, four times one night." He was aghast:

"My God! What the hell are you, some kind of a sex fiend? And to think I was worried about you meeting girls...I understand perfectly. You've been f--kin' your brains out in my f--kin' hotel....Boy, son, your generation is something else. Do you have any idea how difficult it was for me to get laid when I was your age? Do you have any idea? It was damn near impossible. That's how difficult it was."

Sam's father was more upset about his son's sexual proclivity than his devious use of the room.

After Sam's awkward dinner with Laura at her home, the two ended up at the bowling alley eating burgers. When he went to say goodnight to her at her front door: ("I really like you"), he realized she was the owner of the earrings he had found in the suite. He was stunned and depressed. The next day at school, Sam's friends assumed that the 'Honeymoon Suite' would still be available for their use. That evening while working the front desk, Sam saw Mick and Laura enter the room. She admitted that she was reluctant and uncomfortable about sneaking around and being there with him after her pleasant evening with Sam.

As they were kissing, Sam burst into the room and tossed them out. Laura was stunned: "This is your motel, Sam?" Already suspicious of Sam's growing relationship with Laura, Mick confronted him outside the room on the balcony: "So what's goin' on with you two?" When Mick began to bargain to keep the motel room available, in exchange for setting up Laura on a date with Sam, he finally had enough:

"You know somethin', Mick? You're the biggest f--kin' asshole I ever met."

Sam punched him in the face, bloodied his face and and broke his nose - and for the remainder of the film, Mick was bandaged. The next day, Laura was apologetic to Sam: "I wish things could've been different" - and he agreed. For Sam's deception of his father by turning the motel into a "teenybopper whorehouse," he was severely punished, permanently grounded and required to clean all the motel rooms. Meanwhile, Mick's under-handed two-timing of both Debbie and Laura was fully revealed to both girls, and even the Coach knew of Mick's duplicity. Even Mick's good friend Danny Williams (Rick Gibbs) reminded him:

"Hey Mick, you know, you can't have everybody."

Laura arrived at the motel to warn Sam that Mick was planning on seeking revenge for his broken nose, but it was Mick's dishonesty that finally caught up with him. Laura and Sam were destined to become romantically interested in each other. They drove off in the pink station wagon, with his father's permission ("Take the car, what the hell, you run the whole god-damn place anyway"), to go bowling, as Sam asked Laura - with the film's last line: "Which one of you told the Coach about Mick?"

In the film's final moments, Danny snuck into the motel's 'suite' with Debbie, although Mr. Kehoe assumed it was Sam (with Laura).

Private Resort (1985)

This was the third in a series of Private... films (see more above) by producer R. Ben Efraim. It turned out to be an unamusing sex comedy romp about two sex-crazy guys spending a wild weekend in a luxury Miami, Florida resort hotel.


Private Lessons (1981)

Private School (1983)

Private Resort (1985)

Its tagline was:

  • "Where Every Room Has a Great View."

The two female-chasing buddies (who were both briefly bottomless) in the "private resort" were:

  • Jack (Johnny Depp, in an early screen appearance)
  • Ben (Rob Morrow, in his screen debut)

The film opened with the camera scanning oodles of bikini-clad beauties by the resort's pool. One of them had the misfortune of having the top of her bikini pulled off by a fishing hook and pole by a young lad named Georgie (Matthew Levine).

It also featured Police Academy's Leslie Easterbrook as trophy wife Bobbie Sue in a see-thru negligee when she caught Jack in her room, and sexpot Bikini Girl (Vickie Benson) with the skimpiest of blue bikinis. When confronted by the overzealous resort detective Reeves (Tony Azito) at an elevator for having too revealing a bikini and disobeying the dress code, he accidentally exposed her breasts - she slapped him and called him a "pervert."

One of the most remarkable scenes was when crazy, Eastern religion-worshipping Jewish cousin Shirley (Hilary Shepard) who was a devotee of Baba Rama Nana ("the greatest of all spirit forces"), stripped off her clothing to "be totally free," outstretched her arms toward Ben and ordered told him to strip naked: ("You must lose your artificial layers"). And then as he became aroused, she encouraged him:

"Gaze upon the face of Baba Rama Nana. Can you see the beautiful light shining from his eyes? Can you feel your spirit growing?"

They began chanting: "Come to me!" But he broke the spell by grabbing her irresistible naked body.

One Crazy Summer (1986)

This quirky and wacky teen comedy (a light revenge of the misfits tale similar to Better Off Dead...(1985)) was from writer/director Savage Steve Holland - it was remarkable for being one of the few teen comedies of its era that was non-raunchy. Its tagline was:

  • "They're Out of School, Out on Nantucket, and Out of Their Minds. With This Crowd, Anything Can Happen!"

It featured frustrated cartoonist Hoops McCann (John Cusack), a young art prodigy who was planning on going to art school in the fall. While still needing to complete an art project, he went to Nantucket Island for "one crazy summer" with pal George Calamari (Joel Murray). He found inspiration with a pretty, aspiring singer/songwriter musician named Cassandra (Demi Moore). He helped her to save her family home from evil property developers.

Also included: a yacht-sailing regatta race, the proposed construction of a lobster restaurant by sleazy real estate condo developer Mr. Beckersted (Mark Metcalf) and his spoiled local bully son Teddy Beckersted (Matt Mulhern), who were attempting to take Cassandra's grandfather's home and build another Lobster Log Restaurant.

Also memorable, it featured zany Bobcat Goldthwait as Egg Stork dressed in a Godzilla outfit invading a tea party, and animated interludes.

Hot Times at Montclair High (1989)

Director Jose Altonaga's sex comedy was a routine high school drama about a momentous senior year. (It was essentially a cross between Revenge of the Nerds (1984) and The Breakfast Club (1985)). Its taglines were:

  • "Sex, Drugs...So Who Needs Rock 'N Roll?"
  • "She's Hot... and They're Not"

In the story, handsome star football jock Sean Willis (Ross Hamilton), seemingly successful with a cheerleader girlfriend named Jenny Rush (Kim Valentine) and with a scholarship, failed a crucial science test.

Two other individuals would come into play to assist Sean:

  • Jason Miller (Brent Jasmer), a tough, always-in-trouble class punk
  • Zigmond "Ziggy" Karpinski (Johnathan Gorman), a sexually-obsessed, nerdy computer wiz who in dream sequences fantasized about having sex with lingerie-wearing science teacher Miss Hershey (Jonelle Goddard), in a soft-focus setting, and on a lab table

The photography teacher, Mr. Sakamoto, had given his students an unusual classroom assignment - to capture "An Embarrassing Moment" on film. Jason and Ziggy spied on the girl's shower room (providing most of the film's nudity from unknown actresses and a bit from sexpot Bridgette (Kim Anderson)), and their combined weight caused them to fall through the ceiling. They were sentenced to three-weeks detention for their "perverted behavior."

T & A in a Girl's Shower Room Sequence

Also in the detention session, Sean enlisted their support - to help seek revenge against long-haired musician and drug kingpin Dirk Allen (Michael Bates) who had drugged and sexually assaulted girl-next-door Jennie on a 70 foot yacht during a party. She had also become suicidal when Sean angrily broke up with her.

Spring Fever USA (1989) (aka Lauderdale, or Spring Break USA)

This sexploitation B-movie from writer/director Bill Milling (a former porn director) was about spring fever - a time of all-night parties and pretty females. Its tagline was:

  • "Where Life's a Beach"

It told about two males looking for hard-bodies in Florida:

  • Larry Wilson (Darrel Guilbeau), a UCLA student
  • Animal (Jeff Greenman), fat and maniacal

The film also featured porn star Ron Jeremy, and future porn star Janine Lindemulder (as blonde beauty Heather Lipton), in a lengthy bathtub bathing scene. After Larry rescued Heather, she treated him to a bubble-bath and possible love-making, but there were many detours after he went to a liquor store to get a bottle of Dom Perignon for the two of them.
