    #83 Carnal Crimes!

    Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 83 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

    We’re joined this episode by Kelly and Ken from Compañeros Radio Network sister show Heavy Leather Horror Show, taking on not a horror film, but art crimes! Carnal art crimes, in Gregory Dark’s 1991 erotic thriller Carnal Crimes. This is Dark’s first erotic thriller, all the pieces are in place: an unsatisfied wife gets involved with a mysterious and mulleted photographer, only to find he’s more dangerous than he seems. Also, he really likes bananas! Does it all come together? Well, not quite, but there’s plenty to chew on nonetheless!

    Plus, we talk about the life and career of the film’s star, the great Linda Carol. Carol is best known for playing the lead in Reform School Girls, but it turns out you can’t talk about the life of Linda Carol without also talking about the life of New England mobster Champagne Denny. It’s quite a tale.

    #82 Deadly Embrace!

    #82 Deadly Embrace!

    Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 82 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

    This episode, we’re joined by our good bud Carlo, from Crud Buddies and the Notes From the Back Row podcast. And all of us are wrapped up into a fatal cuddle from the master David DeCoteau, as we check out his 1989 proto-erotic thriller Deadly Embrace! It’s sort of like an erotic thriller, in that it’s about an affair that turns deadly - a very familiar erotic thriller plot - but also there’s about 50 minutes where people mostly just talk on the phone to each other. On the plus side, it does star Jan-Michael Vincent, Linnea Quigley and Ken Abraham, and DeCoteau’s camera is all about Ken Abraham in this movie, so that at least is a lot of fun.

    And we talk about the film’s female lead, Mindi Miller (aka Ty Randolph). Miller was not only an actor, but also a stunt performer, model, bodybuilder and - more recently - a skin care esthetician. She also had a rather famous boyfriend in the ‘70s! As a bonus, not only do you get to hear all about that, you get to hear her (in a clip from another podcast) talk about how her ex-boyfriend can still time travel and visit her in dreams even though he’s long dead.

    #81 Power Play!

    #81 Power Play!

    Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 81 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

    This time, we’re joined by Shannon Tweed superfan Tanner (who runs the StrippedToKill account on Instagram). But never let it be said Get Soft choose the easy roads or obvious films: instead of going for one of her big name projects, we decided to talk about Powerplay, a 1999 erotic thriller slash sort of comedy? Something like that. It is a weird one, either way - after the death of her step father, a ‘90s hot young woman chases down the gold digging black widow who was responsible for his demise. She also brings along her 40-something boyfriend, who has zero charisma, and even less idea of how to track someone down with any kind of subtlety. There’s kickboxing, there’s some serious, serious gore, strange comic relief, a soundtrack that makes at least half the cast of the show cry with laughter, and copious amounts of Shannon Tweed acting evil.

    Of course, you can’t have a Shannon Tweed superfan on the show without talking about the life and career of the queen of erotic thrillers. We chart the rise and rise of Shannon Tweed from mink farm to Playboy mansion, all the way to reality show superstardom with Gene Simmons.

    #80 Submission episodes 4-6!

    Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 80 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

    This time around, we finish up the final three episodes of Submission, the 2016 BDSM drama series by the great Jacky St James! The first three episodes didn’t go down great with the gang - will things pick up? Can a truly shocking final twist redeem the show? At the very least, we did receive a nice note from Jacky St James saying she liked our discussion of the first three episodes, so there’s that.

    Plus, having talked about Jacky last time, we take a look at the life and career of the biggest name star of the show: the legendary Raylin Joy, better known as Skin Diamond! Joy got into porn almost without really meaning to make a career out of it, but then became a superstar. She left the industry in 2016, so we check out some of what she’s been doing since - music and modelling, mostly!

    #79 Submission episodes 1-3!

    Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 79 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

    We haven’t done a TV show for almost 12 months now, since we finished our run on Hot Springs Hotel, so it’s well past time we looked at that wild corner of the softcore landscape. From weirdo ‘90s comedy, this time we’re moving into the most contemporary thing we’ve ever done: the 2016, six episode BDSM drama series, Submission! We’re joined once again by the legendary Pinky for this dizzying mix of pleasure and pain. Submission is the softcore debut for writer, director and co-creator Jacky St. James, who is responsible for the phenomenally successful hardcore series The Submission of Emma Marx, which - much like this series - attempted to redefine BDSM fiction following that whole 50 Shades business. But will a bunch of people who have absolutely no experience or particular interest in BDSM submit to the show’s charms?

    And, of course, we look into the life and career of Jacky St. James, one of the most important and successful female writer/directors in modern hardcore. Astonishingly, she got into the business when she won a script writing competition, which is cool, but also means she gets asked to retell the story every single time she’s interviewed, which seems like it would get tiring.

    #78 Confessions of a Sex Maniac!

    #78 Confessions of a Sex Maniac!

    Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 78 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!

    It’s been a while since we’ve done a British film, and even longer since we’ve done a good old raunchy British sex comedy. So, this episode, the core trio check out 1974’s Confessions of a Sex Maniac, aka The Man Who Couldn’t Get Enough! An unusually unprofessional, sex obsessed young architect decides to design a building based on the perfect breast, but of course he needs to find the perfect breast first. Those Brits, right? What a bunch. Turns out the movie is sort of like a sex comedy, but without actual jokes. So that’s odd.

    For some reason, it stars Roger Lloyd Pack, who’s probably best known from either one of the Harry Potter movies, The Vicar of Dibley, or Only Fools and Horses, depending on how old you are and if you’re from either the UK or a British colony. But he was also a Shakespearean actor, and fiercely left wing, pro-union, and pro-public education, public broadcasting, public health, and public transport.
