Forbidden Flesh! “Dirty Girls”! The “Unsatisfied!” Classic “Sexploitation” Cinema!



It seems like a stupid question, but at one time, it was a major box office draw in the US!


There was an era when films that showed “wanton women” were big box office hits – oh, in the kind of theater you would never be caught dead in!

First, let’s show you the definition of “wanton women”:

Wanton Women

Wanton (especially of a woman) – sexually immodest or promiscuous: her cheeks burned as she recalled how forward she had been, how wanton – a sexually immodest or promiscuous woman.

Stag magazine

To behave in a sexually immodest or promiscuous way: women who have wantoned with suitors –


That’s right: They “Wantoned With Suitors!”

OK, time to go back to the wild and crazy days of the 60’s, when the sexual revolution helped usher in a whole new era of movie. In the late 60’s and early 70’s, shrewd theater owners saw that low-rent, sleazy melodramas that focused on WANTON WOMEN did very well with single guys…what a surprise!

It was an era of grindhouse theaters like these – on 42nd street in Times Square – “grindhouse” meant they churned out movie after movie without stopping – and these were films that showed how “wanton” women could be – it was all a male fantasy of course, but it worked, proving once again how stupid guys have always been – and an era in movies that made lots of money off of them!

The Dirty Girls! They Were Made For Love!

Any problem understanding what this film is all about? Of course not! The poster says it all – women who were ready to share their love with you – when this film was released, there were new “social freedoms” that were taking place across the country – the “sexual revolution” in all its forms made for good copy and great box office! It was a simple, exploitative, and pandering marketing pitch that paid off, as you will see…

These posters all shared the same theme: “Daring, revealing exposes of life in the big city!” As a young guy, that meant moves that depicted women who were “morally flexible” – for a repressed young male, it was a dream come true – but in fact, these posters promised much more than the films would ever deliver…
like this one!

The Unsatisfied! “Violence – Liquor – Sex. NEVER ENOUGH!

Stop for a moment to savor the simplicity of it:

“Violence – Liquor – Sex. NEVER ENOUGH!”

Thanks to Something Weird Video for the description of the film – it was every young man’s fantasy – oh, and it still is! The grindhouse experts at Something Weird have spent years uncovering these classic sexploitation films, making them available to exploitation fans everywhere!

SW calls it a “slick, well-made, nasty little movie, ‘The Unsatisfied’ gives off a very different vibe and boasts a very different flavor than the typical U.S. teens-in-trouble film. When LEE HESSEL’s Cambist Films released a U.S. version of it in 1964, additional shot-in-New York skin scenes were cleverly added”.

That’s right, they took foreign films, re-titled them, added some additional skin shots and sold them to an unsuspecting public -I mean, it seems that guys are not that hard to figure out!’

The Unsatisfied

“I’ll kill you for that, you witch!”

Here’s the story of how these movies came to be: the added filmed inserts would add extra nudity or sexual situations to the movie for the purpose of selling it to a grindhouse audience – including a surreal moment just five minutes into this film in which two topless gals in a dressing room exchange words (“I’ll kill you for that, you witch!”), then suddenly fight to the death with a pair of scissors as a third gal blandly looks on: “C’mon, break it up, the phone’s ringing!” As quickly as the fight started, it abruptly stops, and the third gal happily shows off the (then-new) topless bathing suit she’s wearing! Wow.
