Lilith Likes to Watch - The Passions of Carol

Title:  The Passions of Carol Year:  1975 Starring:  Mary Stuart, Kim Pope, Jamie Gillis Director:  Shaun Costello Synopsis:  X-rated adaptation of A Christmas Carol Lilith's Notes:  The very first hard core XXX adult film to open in a straight theater. "I know your purpose is to do me good." T'is the season, and it's harder than you'd think to find Christmas themed porno. So, since we're not spoiled for choice I decided to go with The Passions of Carol, a porno adaptation of   A Christmas Carol. At first I thought this film understood me.

I discovered this film because, basically I just read over Jean Jennings' IMDB page and saw the title. It was an unusual title so I investigated further. Not only did it have a strange title but it was based on a novel that's over 100 years old and it was the fi

Director:  Anthony Spinelli Synopsis:  A bus tour takes its passengers to a place called SexWorld where they can live out their most secret desires during a weekend. - Via IMDB Lilith's Notes:  Porn debut of Kay Parker. Has a theme song which helped it win Best Musical Score at the '79 AFAA. "SexWorld! Do what you will. SexWorld! Come have your fill..." Ah, fantasies. We all have them, whether or not we indulge them. SexWorld  is an interesting experience because while watching it, you can't help but ask yourself, "What would my SexWorld be?" Such a rare thing, a porno that makes the viewer think. SexWorld  is an obvious riff on the original 1973 film  Westworld. S everal vacationers, with their own reasons, hop aboard a bus to the titular SexWorld, where every fantasy is catered to. Hidden away from the guests is a cont
