Storyline

Linda, frustrated that her hugely energetic sex life leaves her unsatisfied, seeks medical help. The doctor informs her that the reason for her problem is that her clitoris is mistakenly located at the back of her throat - but there is a very simple remedy, which the doctor, and various other men, proceed to demonstrate.

Trivia

The Radio Times "Guide to Films 2007" picked this as one of 100 landmark films of all time. Radio Times' film editor Andrew Collins said that the list is about a film's influence on society, not cinematic quality. Collins said "'Deep Throat' is not necessarily recommended for everyone. It's a quite badly made film, but to deny its influence would be pure snobbery." See more »

Porn Cult Classic
28 May 2001 | by SchlockmeisterSee all my reviews

This movie set the stage for "Porno Chic" a time when it seemed okay to go out and see a "dirty movie" at the local theatre. Couples were going, along with groups of women, curious as to what the clamour was all about. The clamour was actually about this technique that Linda Lovelace was displaying in this movie. That is the true star of the movie. We can easily forget that this was a time when adult features were trying to have a storyline to gain acceptance with a mainstream audience so a story is included. The acting in this movie is okay as porn acting goes, luckily the one with the talented throat also could manage a few acting skills. Dolly Sharp as Linda's girlfriend Helen is funny and has an unusual look for those of us used to modern-day Bimbo porno queens. What ever happened to Dolly Sharp? Harry Reems is doing his best Groucho Marx imitation as the doctor who helps Linda with her "problem". The young looking blonde who is Reems' nurse just seems to be allowing her body to be used as she appears to be a million miles away emotionally and mentally. Great music. Rare to find a porn movie what has lyrics along with the action. Singing a song called "Bubbles" and making bubbling noises during an oral sex scene comes across pretty funny , but the song that is REALLY funny is the title song "Deep Throat" with such memorable lyrics as "Deep Throat, that's all she wrote, Deep Throat", we have had a lot of fun making up our own lyrics to this song. Highly recommended adult movie. Funny as hell, sexy and it will get you turned on. What more can one ask for in an adult film?
