Roger Greenspun of The New York Times did not care for the film at all:
... [T]here are ineptitudes and unrewarding obscurities enough to sink the movie... The movie it keeps trying to be, however, is an amalgam of social satire and sane sex propaganda and it succeeds with neither... time and again it comes to look like a series of blackout skits from the more inhibited edges of an exploitation movie.
