From the makers of Reefer Madness comes Sex Madness. A film demonstrating that sex can be just as detrimental as marijuana.

This is a typical sex exploitation film from the early 1930s - complete with wild parties, sex out of wedlock, lesbianism, etc. A chorus girl's exposure to the "casting couch" also exposes her to syphilis. Exploitation filmmakers hoped to capitalize on the taboo subjects of venereal disease, sex before marriage, lesbianism, etc. while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 which forbade a film from containing such content. Films like this would tour the United States for years - mostly being shown in rundown, skid row theaters.

Released as an educational film no doubt to get around the Hays Code, this is really a sleazy exploitation film. It has some of the worst acting you'll ever see. Here's the plot from IMDb: A happily married couple has been trying to have a baby with no luck. They discover that the husband is sterile.

A failed actor, after killing the mad scientist he works for, decides to take over the scientist's life and continue his work. You can find out more about this movie on its IMDB page. There is an AVI of the movie here.
