In a snowy upstate New York village, two unhappily married women bide their time with each other's company. The husbands of beautiful blonde Mona (Lorraine Claire) and big-haired brunette Karen are busy developing their own company, with their love lives suffering in the process. Mona's next-door neighbor Brooke suggests them join the area's most happening club, "The Exchange." Rather than the usual men-swapping-wives routine, this time round it's the horny wives who switch husbands for a night of sexy fun.
exciting and ever interesting relic of a most specific period of sexual social history
Not the non stop swaparama one might expect and the participants may show as much angst as flesh but this is still one hell of a movie. Just a little overlong but it boldly covers much ground and the 60's were barely swinging by this time. In the beginning it appears that the movie will be about the seduction of college kids by bored housewives but this keeps broadening out until we have a sleazy (mostly off screen) rape as seeming finale but no there is more. In the end we have (again, mostly off screen) gang rape and suggestions of incest. Heady stuff and for the most part all treated most seriously and if some of the performances lapse occasionally, the sexy mood, aided by simple yet effective spasmodic drumming sustains the movie throughout it's gradual spiral towards depravity. Well shot and for the most part well performed. An exciting and ever interesting relic of a most specific period of sexual social history. Fun too!
