16 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 30 libraries worldwide
Teils grelle, teils hintergründige parodistische Filmsatire auf die Sexwelle der frühen 70er Jahre. In sieben "Kapiteln" voll beißenden Spotts entlarvt der Regisseur die damals modischen Themen und Komplexe durch Übersteigerung bis ins Monströse, die mit rücksichtsloser Konsequenz durchgehalten wird. Die populärwissenschaftlichen Banalitäten der Aufklärungswelle werden dabei lustvoll karikiert; zugleich ergeben sich amüsante Genrepersiflagen.
