Eating Raoul (1982)
Eating Raoul touches on all sorts of sexual perversion from S&M to role play, from swingers to bestiality. We get midgets, bondage, a silly hippy-dellic sex scenes, a swingers party massacre, bare breasted women including Mary Woronov which never seems to get old. We get Nazi fetish and lots of frying-pan-fu.
My personal favorite scene involves Paul Bartel picking up supplies at the local sex shop and being belittled by the sleazy clerk behind the counter. Don Steele also shows up in here who is known for all his roles in Roger Corman flicks and this time he's naked.
Eating Raoul is campy fun all the way through and it doesn't take itself serious. It also has a very sarcastic tone to it and doesn't show moralists in a much better light then the sexual deviates. There really aren't any good guys in this one and those are always my favorite kind of movies. If someone was to tell me they were looking for a comedy that dared to be different and had a raunchy side to it, this would be at the top of my recommendations. So climb into your latex suit, lube yourself up and have a swinging time with Eating Raoul. Its as fun as a frying pan to the head!
