A SWEET SICKNESS (1968)
This old 60's sexploitation flick is pretty close to more modern day porn in that there really isn't that much of a plot, just a bunch of scenes of a woman being used and abused by various people around Hollywood as she tries to work her way to the top. There's a weird scene where her clothes are auctioned off and then her boss hits her 'cuz she didn't let the winner of the auction have his way with her. Most of the scenes don't even have that much drama though and are just excuses for more nudity and soft-core sex. Not that there's anything wrong with that if black and white humping turns you on. There's also an audition with a big-boobed stripper who was either pregnant or had quite the beer-belly which was kinda gross but maybe some folks are into that kind of thing. My favorite bit is the climax where our heroine/poster-child for female victimization is chloroformed and then used in a weird orgy/gang-bang while some DOORS-rip-off music plays, everyone is covered in shaving cream and a guy in an ugly monster/gorilla mask fondles her lovingly. Now that's a party!
