Richard Franklin – The Oral Generation (1970)
Presented by “Family Studies Institute” THE ORAL GENERATION purports to be the first sexual instruction film aimed at liberated women; although it’s focus is of course on how a woman can please a man (or how a woman can please a woman with a man watching) in a non-conventional manner. The narration describes the greater availability of literature on sexuality aimed at female readers (although what we are shown on-camera are the usual texts from Kinsey to Krafft-Ebing to “The Joy of Sex” and “The Sensuous Woman” as well as the usual porn magazines) as well as female-focused films (during a montage of 42nd Street porn theater marquees). The oral sex interludes intercut with this academic discussion take the form of anecdotes by wives surprising their husbands in the showers or role-playing as their husbands secretaries (the only interlude that is remotely arousing in its rhythmic and escalating intercutting). There’s also a bizarre vignette involving a black samurai and a ménage a trois. Credits are non-existent for this one, but one of the performers appears to be Tina Russell (the 1970 date comes from Vinegar Syndrome’s back cover).
