This "study" of the hip phenomenon of mate-swapping consists of a number of documentary-style episodes linked by an outrageously deadpan American psychologist. The first episode has a young wife being ordered to swim naked to a houseboat where she is forced to stay the night. The next

episode has a husband and wife, Donnelly and St. John, looking for sexual satisfaction and finding it in swapping. Of course, St. John is shy at first, but before long becomes addicted to the kinky practice. In another episode a couple find adventure on a weekend cruise. There's also an

"interview" with a woman who turns to prostitution to help her husband pay the bills. He gets carted off to prison for his involvement, while she is allowed to continue selling herself. The picture is filled with people trying to avoid being "square," but who now seem ridiculous doing so. The

film, narrated by one David Gell, claims to be an in-depth study revealing the reasons behind swapping. All it really reveals is the gross lack of filmmaking ability.
