EB #16 - TOPLESS TAVERN

[I don't have this EP and have no plot or cast info.]

I think I may have this one. Tom Byron plays a blue collar guy who wanders into a bar where the staff are all topless. It's in German, so I don't quite get it all, but he tries to chat up the bartender (who played "Tammy's" mother in Blind Date). There's also a stripper I recognise but can't name. I'll try and do some vidcaps.

Stars: None in the main story

Note: Although this sounds a lot like the Playboy Channel series Birds in Paradise it's completely different. It actually pre-dates BIP and may have been the original source material.


Yes, "Birds in Paradise" was set in Florida, not the Caribbean. Wink

There's a fantastic orgy scene at the end of the story and as Kelly Nichols signs off she's undressed and pulled into a sea of bodies. It's awesome to hear her voice trembling as she's fondled and groped!
I remember that, very well. I always really liked Kelly and that was a very hot scene.

Interestingly, all of this nostalgia had me considering starting a thread to see if anyone else remembered Birds In Paradise and if they held it in as high regard as I do Cool

"Topless Tavern" (maybe)


The lead actress, whom Tom eventually scores.


Very familiar, but don't know her name.


She hussles the bar patrons at pool.



More extras.

While compiling this data I came across an email correspondance I had with a guy in Britain in 1999 who was auctioning 20 original EB's on eBay from early in the series. They were PAL format so I didn't bid on them (boy that was dumb!). He gives a lot of great background to the series:

"The EB series of productions has a history dating back to 1980 when they first released their men's magazine on video with EB 001. At the time video censorship in the UK was very lax and the first 20 or so volumes contained extremely erotic female masturbation sequences, lesbian frolicking and were introduced by stars including Vanessa Del Rio, Desiree Cousteau and Marilyn Chambers. Around Volume 10 they started to introduce men/women centrefolds and, whilst you never saw an erection, they were much hotter than anything the UK had ever seen. So much so that in 1984 the British Video Recordings Act resulted in the outlawing of these first 20 volumes. The series continued but now content became very softcore, tits and bums, heavy comic content rather than erotica.

The early volumes were re-edited to remove most of the stronger scenes and mixed together as The Best of Electric Blue. They were nothing of the sort. In the late 80s EB turned their hands to producing softcore for US and European late night cable channels and their own softcore magazine but they never rivalled their early output, which retains its extremely high arousal factor to this day."


EB was the world's first video men's magazine (just beating Playboy). At the time, the UK had the strictest censorship laws in the EU, but they only applied to local production. A bizarre loophole allowed for very hardcore EuroPorn to be imported; if you couldn't understand what was being said, it was deemed to be acceptable. Electric Blue was about as explict as the BBFC allowed, but it was still pretty soft compared to what was coming out of Europe.

All that changed in the mid-90s, when British censorship laws were relaxed and allowed for HC local production. Almost overnight, EB couldn't sell their programmes any more.

I share the same fondness for this classic show. I have most of all four episodes and the casualness of the nudity and sexual situations made it memorable. If you were lucky enough to tape it off the Playboy Channel you did good because the series was released on video in a heavily edited form under the title Soft Touch.

Whatever happened to Jennifer Inch, Jeanine Louise and Sue Morrow?

Hey GailFan,

I'm using Snappy, but I'm glad you asked this because now I'm thinking that the computer I have now is a lot faster than the one I first tried to grab jpegs on. I accidently tried to grab some captures of some of the recent videos I reviewed for the site without using the pause button and even though they were not as good as the captures I could get when I remembered to pause the frame first they were a lot better than what I got with the slower computer. I'll try sticking in some of the videos I recorded in years past with the other VCR and see if I can grab scans that look okay. On pause they are a disaster but things look okay when the video is running normally.

What are you using? I have a very primitive frame grabber than plugs into the printer port but it can still manage to capture from a live (non-paused) source (albeit with a low frame-rate, and there's still the problem of motion-blur). It actually stopped working 2 years ago but I just got it working this afternoon when I bought a new parallel cable! (Although these caps were actually just grabbed from DVD, this is one of the few episodes I bought recently from Germany).

That is exactly what made it so hot. Full but not overly explicit nudity, which was oftentimes just happenstance and not directly related to imminent sex, which is cool for a change, plus an open, Emmanuelle style attitude about the gender of the partners and the guilt-free, wholesome nature of the sex. The plot is a tried and true softcore one (girls need to raise money to buy something big), but they used it as a great jumping off point.

So I've read. What evil bastard would do such a thing?
Quote:

This is Jeanne and Sue's only IMDB credit, but I remember seeing Sue in another Playboy Channel production of the era. Let's see if this rings any bells:

This was a shot-on-video hour long show that concerned a group of people and their relationships over the course of one day and night. Couples hooked up, broke apart, cheated on each other...it was like a softcore Short Cuts, following a multi-player cast and their exploits. Additionally, most of the cast had after the fact confessional "interviews" in which they expressed their thoughts and feeling directly to the viewer, breaking down the fourth wall.

Most of the action centered around a bar where a lot of these people either were drinking or worked. Sue played a waitress who was having trouble with her demanding jerk of a boyfriend who was a bartender. She wound up going home with a guy who clearly fancied himself a Tom Selleck type. She had several full frontal scenes, one in a shower early in the day and then one with the Magnum wannabe as they went down to his kitchen to get something to eat and he wound up going down on her as she sat on the counter.

I've got that and a couple of BiP episodes on VHS, but I haven't had a VCR since I gave it away to make room for my DVD player in 2002. I should probably pick one up second hand and use it with my other TVs so I could see some of this stuff again.

Ugly George was a well named guy (he looked a lot like Bob Guccione, Jr.) who had a cable access show in New York where he accosted women on the streets and tried to get them to come back to his studio and strip on camera.

EB #21 - A NIGHT IN BANGKOK

The Seven Stars of the Orient, a fabulous necklace with untold powers, is missing and it's up to a gorgeous antique dealer to travel to the Far East and find it.

Stars: Traci Lords, Kristara Barrington

Note: Traci plays twin sisters in this EP and has quite a lot of nude scenes. I've never seen this EP on the Playboy Channel or offered for sale anywhere.


I have this one. It's a sort-of Indiana Jones spoof. The first sister is a spy in Shanghai, her cover is as a magician's assistant. On-stage she wears a little pink g-string and nothing else. Otherwise, her outfit is a copy of Indy's. When she's captured by a sort-of female Fu Manchu character (played by a European actress), her twin sister and her boyfriend come to the rescue.
There's an excellent moment when the magician mistakes the sister for his assistant, hands her her "costume" and expects her to resume the act. There's also a scene where Traci has to escape past a pair of guards, so she raises her top, and while they're ogling her chest she knocks their heads together. Parts of it were shot in the same nighclub used for the Silk Garter Club.

I may hold off capping this one, given Traci's dubious legal status.

I'll try and do another cap. There's just very brief shots of many of the extras working the bar. This was from the first batch of German re-releases on DVD from around 2001, and the quality is shocking, worse than the original VHS tapes I bought in the early 90s.

It is a great ep, and one of my favourites. I just wish they'd released it with the original English track as well.

In addition to the central story in each Electric Blue there were also short vignettes (although as GailFan mentions the vignettes were the main part of the British versions). Just for info purposes I thought I'd list some of the recurring segments in the series. Unless specified, the segments ran the length of the series.

"Electric Blue Reports" - An on-the-scene, travelogue-like segment that featured various adult activities and personalities from all over the world. Everything from live sex shows, model searches, alternate lifestyles and T&A celebrity profiles. If it was happening in the realm of adult entertainment, it was covered by EB Reports.

"Critic's Corner" - Adult film reviews that span skin flicks from the early 70s to the video age. While the reviews were helpful in ID-ing stars, they were often glowingly over-the-top. Each film was ultimately deemed an erotic masterpiece.

"Nude Wives" - This segment featured nude home videos submitted by viewers. The quality wasn't always the greatest (the camera work or the women) so maybe that's why it was discontinued after about a dozen episodes.

"Electric Blue's Therapy Corner" - Hosted by porn star Veronica Hart (in a doctor's office dressed in a lab coat), the whole premise of this segment was simply to set up another short bunch of nudie clips that sometimes only vaguely related to the "topic," such as a discussion on nude exercise followed by slow motion video of a couple playing ping pong naked. It was discontinued by EB #20.

"Fantasy Woman" - A non-specific vignette that usually came at the end of the show. A busty girl in a jeweled bra always fronted the segment (who was she?!). The subject matter would almost always be a short erotic MF encounter or solo girl scene but it could have been anything. Some favorites of mine were two nude girls teasing a lifeguard at an indoor pool and T&A babe Julia Parton and a guy doing some sexy aerobics.

Note: Starting about EB #17 previews of upcoming shows became a regular feature. One segment that I wish had continued was "Celebrity Nude." It never made it past the first few episodes.

"...the sex is hot..." Laughing

That's where I saw the review of the Splash parody w/ Traci Lords and John Leslie.

Was that the segment with the sweaty brunette essnetially fellating the bottle of Perrier, then dribbling it down over her bare chest, that they used the clip of in the opening credits?

Here are descriptions of the short-lived follow-up series to EB, Tales of Erotica. The format was shortened to 30 minutes which only allowed for four segments of the main story (divided in "chapters") and two erotic vignettes per show. It debuted February 20, 1988 on the Playboy Channel. Four episodes exist.

ToE #1 - SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS

Two party animal chemists stumble onto a powerful aphrodesiac derived from the sweat of a special pig.

Stars: Ruth Corrine Collins, Jennifer Delora, Veronica Hart

Note: Porn stars Kascha and Barbii (aka Michelle Verran) appear in vignettes

ToE #2 - THE BOOBY TRAP

Campus coeds aren't safe when the latest sexploitation TV series shows what their hidden cameras have uncovered.

Stars: Tamara Carrera, Gina Carrera, Debra Lamb, Christy Canyon, April Maye, Heather Wayne

Note: Debuted March 19, 1988 on the Playboy Channel. Tamara began her career as a bikini model in US hot rod magazines and is in no way related to 80s porn star Gina. This was easily my fave EP since the hidden camera aspect gave it a voyeuristic appeal and Tamara was a genuine cutie who just about vanished into nowhere within five years.

ToE #3 - SENSUOUS SKIES

The last flight of bankrupt "Titanic Airways" promises to be a hot one when a plane load of horny passengers and crew members take to the skies one final time.

Stars: Krista Lane, Christina Veronica, Jacqueline Lorians, Jennifer Delora

Note: Debuted April 16, 1988 on the Playboy Channel. T&A babe Christina Veronica appears in a vignette

ToE #4 - HEAVENLY BODIES

A reclusive young millionaire pines away his lonliness into songwriting, until he's visited by two sexy ghosts who give his love life a helping hand.

Stars: Debra Lamb, Becky LeBeau, Michele Burger

Note: Debuted May 21, 1988 on the Playboy Channel. Porn star Ginger Lynn appears in a vignette
