'Sex & The Other Woman' is a 1972 smutmanteau, a series of four cautionary tales about the many dangers single girls pose to married men. I say cautionary but, in fact, the hapless husbands do rather well out of it, mostly having their cake and eating it too. And biscuits.
|The waspish Mr. Wattis|
In the first tale, a young model goes all out to snare a wealthy married man - she has uncomfortable looking sex with him on a plane and, later, uncomfortable looking sex on a waterbed as his unimpressed wife watches. Once the divorce is finalised, he sheepishly admits to her that his wife was the rich one, and she drops him like a shit smeared hot brick. A harsh reality, but, don't worry, from here on in the film becomes almost surreally optimistic.
|The glamour of the Mile High Club|
|Sexy woman, now in her sixties|
A moment of discord creeps in when the lover becomes pregnant, something the wife is medically unable to do. Ah, you think, that's pissed on your chips, mate, the end is nigh, but, no, she has twins, a boy and a girl, gives one to her friend, and everybody's happy again. It ends with smug bastard Ted addressing the camera and saying 'take a tip from me, fellas, if you've got a problem with the other woman, try introducing her to the wife. You never know, you might have my luck.' Yes, you might. Or, conversely, you might end up staggering into A & E clutching your severed knackers in your hand.
