A smorgasbord of sexual deviance is on display in this Mondo-styled mockmentary from the golden age of sexploitation. The Lusting Hours is presented as an exposé of "sex for sale," and how it is peddled in its many forms. The films swings back and forth between rural brothels, where frankly unsophisticated local girls sell satisfaction to farmers and small-town businessmen; big city streetwalkers, who offer pleasure for pay to the dregs of society; male hustlers, who will dally with either men or women for the right paycheck; pornographers, who go from snapping cheesecake photos for fun to documenting increasingly kinky activities to support their voyeuristic habit; and sophisticated call girls whose supposedly glamorous life is at odds with the expense and risks of the flesh trade. Shot in stark black-and-white, The Lusting Hours includes appearances from sexploitation icons Michael and Roberta Findlay, under their aliases Julian Marsh and Anna Riva.
