A few months ago I posted a link to video of a 70′s Encounter Group that lot of you liked. Well, it seems what I posed was just a part of the full 90 minutes film. As I said before, as far as I can tell, this is not “staged” like a reality show or porn made to look amateur; but rather it is a promotional film for Encounter Groups.
For those who are too young to remember, the mid 70′s was the high point of the free love movement. It was after the sexual revolution, but before the right-wing backlash and AIDS. Movies like Deep Throat and Debbie Does Dallas played in theaters to a large mainstream audience. For instance I recall my parents and their friends all went to see Debbie Does Dallas at a theater and had no problem telling their teenage kids they were going.
At the same time that sexual barriers came down, there was the rise of the self-help and self-discovery movement. I bet everyone my age remembers Johnathan Livingston Seagull. So wile middle class professionals (like my parents) were exploring nude Caribbean beaches and nude pool parties, mainstream baby-boomers (i.e. not hippies) were trying out things, like sexual Encounter Groups.
While it was filmed in the 70′s, this film shows how free love at things sex-friendly nudist resorts looks even today. .
