Play Time


by Tuna


Monique Parent is somewhat frustrated by her husband's lukewarm libido, and takes matters into her own hand frequently. She mentions this to the wife of her husband's law partner, Jennifer Burton, while drinking mimosas topless by the Palm Springs resort pool. Obviously, the four have known each other a long time, and all work in the office. The arrival of a pool cleaner sends the girls scurrying inside, where they decide to watch each other masturbate. Next, they bring a husband into the act, and then finally try for the other husband, who reacts badly. We learn via flashbacks that his reaction was caused by something Julie Strain and Tammy Parks did to him when he was 18. He causes a battle that threatens to end two marriages and a successful law practice.

Playtime has long been unavailable on Region 1 DVD. Since it is a solid example of couples erotica, I am glad to see that corrected. The film consists of nearly non-stop nudity and simulated sex in groups of 1, 2, 3 and 4, with decent photography throughout. It is a bonus that the filmmakers and cast also somehow make you care about the horny characters.
