A young Southern débutante temporarily abandons her posh lifestyle and upcoming, semi-arranged marriage to have a lustful and erotic fling with a rugged drifter who works at a local carnival.
This well-photographed, R-rated, soft-core erotica drama (with a double entendre title) was produced by director/writer Zalman King (of Red Shoe Diaries fame, who also directed Wild Orchid (1989) and was the writer for 9 1/2 Weeks (1986)). It was followed by a sequel in 1994 called Return to Two Moon Junction, with Melinda Clarke (as a New York fashion model from Georgia who fell for a sculptor) substituting as the sister of Sherilyn Fenn’s character in the first film.
Its cliche-filled tale was about sexual awakening in numerous well-orchestrated, hot tryst scenes between:
April Delongpre (platinum-blonde Sherilyn Fenn), a Southern belle, Alabama heiress, and soon-to-be-married
Perry (Richard Tyson), a lusty, long-haired, white-trash carnival worker
She was challenged by him when he remarked: “I thought you were just another tight-ass princess,” and she fought off his kisses but soon succumbed. She took an arousing, auto-erotic long steamy shower intercut with scenes of the brawny carnival workers setting up and her subjective fantasy of watching nude men through an uncovered tile peep-hole. During one of the explicit, steamy sex scenes April had with the carny, her fiancée Chad Douglas Fairchild (Martin Hewitt) was at a bachelor party (presided over by Sheriff Earl Hawkins (Burl Ives)) watching a stripper dressed as a sheriff.
The erotic romance even featured a quick topless-nude cameo by Kristy McNichol (from the TV series Family) as bourbon-drinking, truck-driving floozie Patti Jean, who boasted about painting her nipples (“Now you know my secret. I put a little rouge on. Makes it easier to see through my blouse. It’s a real 60’s thing to do, but I think it’s cute. Boys would just howl when I wore pink angora sweaters in junior high. I love angora. You ever put yours in the refrigerator?…It makes it real fuzzy”), and hinted at being bisexual. She asked April: “I’ll bet you got great tits. I can tell. But you shouldn’t cover ’em up or be ashamed of ’em…And that top would look so much better if you weren’t wearing a bra.”
She offered her own top to April, stripped topless, and encouragingly insisted: “You’ve got the perfect figure for it, perfect. Oh, come on, don’t be shy. Just put it on and say goodbye princess” – until the pressured April obliged. She then admired April’s form: “It’s at moments like this I can see why guys like women so much.”
