If you're looking for a fun blend of soft-core sex, sci-fi and comedy, look no further than Flesh Gordon.

In the early 80s, when I was a spotty adolescent with a burgeoning interest in the female form, I would secretly cast my eye over the 'special' section in my local video shop—the one which contained such 'interesting' titles as Dracula Exotica, Lemon Popsicle, and The Amorous Milkman. Amongst these tempting (but ultimately rather disappointing) titles was the legendary Flesh Gordon, a movie I had heard about from school pals (whose parents were obviously a little more lax in policing their kids' viewing than my own), but one that I found it impossible to see myself (try as I might, the shop owner wouldn't let me rent it!). Now, nearly 30 years later, I have finally caught up with this elusive soft-core sex comedy, and whilst it's hardly shocking or particularly titillating to a man of my advancing years, I found it to be a very entertaining piece of trash. Made in the sexually liberated 70s, this knowingly daft take on the cliffhanger serials of the 30s is silly, saucy fun featuring plenty of full-frontal nudity, some pretty good effects (considering the limitations of the budget), loads of smutty humour, and a shed-load of phallic imagery. In a story that bears many similarities to that of the major Flash Gordon movie of 1980, nasty dictator Emperor Wang attacks earth with a deadly sex ray that turns the population of Earth into uncontrollable nymphomaniacs. Hunky Flesh Gordon (Jason Williams), accompanied by beautiful sidekick Dale Ardor (the gorgeous Suzanne Fields) and scientist Dr. Flexi Jerkoff (Joseph Hudgins) travel to the planet Porno to try and destroy the ray and free its people from the tyranny of Wang. With such delights as one-eyed stop-motion monsters called Penisauruses (or is that Penisauri?), rapist robots, an animated bug-creature, a tribe of lesbian warriors, several orgies (which look rather racy from a distance, and lend credence to the rumour that this was originally a hardcore movie), a penis shaped spaceship, and a huge, but rather erudite beast at the end of the film, Flesh Gordon is a hoot from start to finish. 6.5 out of 10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.

Sex, camp and good fun!

This is truly a camp classic, ripe for discovery by those who love and cherish hysterical over-acting, horrid sex-jokes and flagrant innuendo. The plot is, well,....quite basic: Sex-rays from the planet Porno (presumably somewhere near the Porn-star..) hits Earth and threatens to destroy the morals of mankind. Flesh Gordon, after almost succumbing to those very same rays teams up with the lightly clad Dale Ardor and dr. Flexi Jerkoff. Together they fly off to Porno in a penile spaceship to destroy the evil Wang and his sex-ray machine. OK? Here they meet Penisauruses, the gay (in every sense) men of Sherwood forest, a surly monster (close cousin to King Kong) and an army of perverts, cavorting on the floors of Wang's palace. Wang himself seems somewhat miffed when Flesh complains about the sex-rays destroying morality :"Why, you should THANK me!" The pantomime plot has side-splitting moments and good fun, but at the end of the day it all bubbles down to one word: Sex. This is, effectively, a porn movie, with most of the porn removed (at least in this version), and a mixture of ludicrously funny sight gags and some elaborate special effects thrown into the mix. I enjoyed "Flesh Gordon", because it never stops moving and is always funny. In fact, it's a real treat, and the intended satire on the mores of American science-fiction is spot-on. (including the priceless sight-gag of Dr.Jerkoff starting his rocket-engine with a car-ignition key!) There is also a shot of a stranded spaceship which looks ominously like that one at the start of ALIEN. In fact, it looks like H.R.Giger must have been HEAVILY influenced by it! See this movie!

A hilarious sexy spoof of the original Flash Gordon series.

The title and genre belies the extraordinary production values that went into this film. Even the original 1 sheet (poster) exhibits the exceptional quality of a big studio effort; definitely suitable for framing. The concept is funny and the film is hilarious. The cast list alone will elicit a laugh. Any fan of the original serial will delight in the parallels and the irreverent treatment of this cultural icon. Naturally this refers to the original, uncut version.
