It's not secret that I've had a bit of a porn star crush on Ginger Lynn ever since I first found New Wave Hookers in a hidden box in my dad's closet. I owe him one for having good taste in smut. It helped to well round me.  Too Naughty to Say No was released in 1985 and still carries with it much of what made the adult entertainment industry great through the 70's and early 80's featuring quite a few big name actors and having a fairly fun theme. Vinegar Syndrome releases this one to DVD.

Victor Nye aka Humphry Knipe had worked in the adult film industry before. He was actually a writer on Star Virgin and this would be the last film he would write. He had directed some other works each with a number of big names actors including Peter North and Chasey Lain. I love the concept of his picture Love Bites - in which mosquitoes are biting men and infecting them with something that is making them horny. Sounds about right to me.

The overall quality of Too Naughty to Say No is great with a nice transfer and a clean print. The cover is sexy featuring my favorite, Ginger Lynn in her birthday suit alongside her costar. The release even comes with a commentary with the Director and Producer.

The movie itself seems to be a rather clear cut fuck by numbers with some great actresses and some hot bodies in some fairly ordinary scenes. The opening at the Catholic school is perhaps the most daring given some of the controversy surrounding using schools and school girls as the jumping off adult features. There are plenty of moments that are edgy but for the most part the actual intercourse is fairly standard stuff. For a movie that is supposedly inspired by the writing of the Marquis de Sade, you really don't get any of this philosophical undertones that make adapted de Sade great (especially modern interpretations of Philosophy in the Bedroom). Do not expect any torture or domination games. It's really about the loss of innocence and self exploration in the face of an overbearing church.

Of course watching my favorite two porn stars bump uglies is always a treat even if the treatment of the de Sade name didn't meet my expectation. Jamie Gillis and Ginger Lynn start off the picture giving us every reason to think this is going to be an unforgettable adult picture. Unfortunately the movie does go down hill from there.

From Vinegar Syndrome:

Beautiful and young Catholic schoolgirl Betty (Angel) is waiting to meet her friend for an innocent and fun filled weekend. After dozing off, she awakens to find that the world isn’t quite as innocent and pure as she thought and soon finds herself trapped in a nightmarish world of sexual perversions. As she stumbles from one encounter to the next, her adventures introduce her to the debauched habits of everyone from the kindly Nun and Father at her school (Lisa De Leeuw and Michael Morrison), her unabashedly kinky friend (Ginger Lynn), and even a perverted undertaker (Harry Reems)!

Inspired by the writings of The Marquis de Sade and produced by internationally acclaimed erotic photographer, Suze Randall, TOO NAUGHTY TO SAY NO is a devilishly clever story of sexual awakening filled with some of the biggest names of the 80s, including Jamie Gillis, Lois Ayers, Bunny Bleu, Raven, Eric Edwards and more.
