Sex-related Aussie documentaries of the 1970s

Johnny Moronic’s latest time capsule.

Johnny’s notes:

Throughout the 1970s there were some sex-related documentaries/docu-dramas that were made in Australia that had a close look at sexuality in Australia. These movies all played in cinemas which seems very odd now but back in the 1970s there wasn’t really any other place to show them as they were often too risqué for television. Plus there was a growing interesting in sex and these movies were generally entertaining. I’ve already looked at the lengthy 1970 documentary The Naked Bunyip, a heavily censored look at sexuality in Australia with the censorship shown with an animation over the scenes that the filmmakers were told to cover up. Now I’m going to take a look at a couple of fairly graphic documentaries from the less censorious mid-1970s.
