Emanuelle Around the World


by Tuna

Emanuelle Around the World is also known as:

  • The Degradation of Emanuelle

  • Emanuelle - perché violenza alle donne?

  • Le vice dans la peau

It is one of the Joe D'Amato black Emanuelle series staring Laura Gemser. The European version contains an additional 8 minutes of nudity, hard core sex, concubine training, bestiality and interesting uses for a banana. It spots a better transfer than the Russian version, and a better dubbing job on the English dub. It also has an Italian soundtrack which comes with optional English subtitles.

This is one of the classier of the series, and even has a plot of sorts. Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) has run off to a tropical paradise with a man, and gotten tired of it. She comes back to work as a photo journalist. She meets an important man who travels constantly, and then is assigned to cover a sex guru who supposedly teaches the perfect orgasm. What she finds instead is a total rip-off of women, and a guru who suffers from premature ejaculation. Next, she teams with reporter Karin Schubert to break a white slavery ring that starts off in Italy and then takes them to Hong Kong. Finally, Emanuelle returns to the US, where she catches a Senator and his buddies abusing a beauty queen on the docks.

4.6 IMDB summary (of 10)




  • Laura Gemser:  all
  • Karin Schubert: all
  • Elisabetta Terribile: all, as the beauty queen. Some claim she is actually Kristine DeBell, others say no. Personally, I don't think so, although there is some resemblance. However, Terribile is only credited for this film, and there is no record of her anywhere else on the Internet.
  • Brigitte Petronio shows all in an early scene.
  • Many, many extras show everything, including hardcore action.
