Mattei's 1979 Mondo Sex Shocker
Title: LIBIDOMANIA: SESSO PERVERSO [Sexual Aberration]
Bruno Mattei (as George Smith)
co-written by: Bruno Mattei and Claudio Fragasso (as Clide Fergusson)
Mattei, Italy's acclaimed master of the obscene, promises a look at
'perverse sex' here. And he delivers in explicit detail for this ultra-rare
mondo shocker, slapping his audience with an onslaught of such colorful
perversities as: The nausea of necrophilia, the dilemma of dildos, the
truth about transsexuals, the sexiness of sadism, and the karma of coprophagia
[plus many more]. The darkest corners of human affection and affliction!
Sigmond Freud meets the Marquis de Sade. A sequel from Mr Mattei came
a year later, LIBIDOMANIA
2: PERVERSE SEX, VIOLENT WORLD.
