A documentary exploration of changing sexual relationships within the family and social institutions, and among different generations. Introduction: "In this program we will explore the implications and limits of the sexual revolution with five women of varied ages and situations. Debbie is 19 and presently bisexual. Patty is 25 and now consciously celibate. Susan is 32, married, divorced, and has been living with the same man for over five years. Ann is 37, married for 20 years and has four children. My name is Millie. I'm 24 and have been living with a man for six months after three years of conscious celibacy." The panel discusses sex education, gender identity (of themselves and toward others), and choices in sexual lifestyles. Includes reading of "Talking to a man," written by Adrienne Rich and "What did you do today, dear," published in Women's Consciousness Man's World. Both were read by Emily Schiller. The male voice is Jim Berland. The song "Private property" was written by Randy Craig, Judy Avrams, and Ruthie Gorton. "I told you not to sleep with my musicians" was also written by Ruthie Gorton. Both songs were performed by Ruthie Gorton. "Custom-made women blues" was done by Hazel and Alice on Rounder Records. Engineering by Emily Schiller, Wendy Sisson, and Peter Sutheim. Produced and hosted by Millie Martinez for KPFK.
