"Twenty or so years ago, when I was in graduate school, a small UHF station in the Detroit area had its late night movie programming taken over- or so it seemed- by a film buff with a taste for low-budget European soft core. There were lots of German lesbian vampire films, strange Italian fantasies, and this movie, which seemed to play at least once a month. A small group of my fellow students (yes, we were all studying psychology, as amatter of fact) became rabid fans of this film series (and of Prisoner Cell Block H, but that's another story.)
The Senator Likes Women is a classic sort of Italian dark comedy and parody, combined with a typically Italian strong anti-Church message. The Senator is a young politician on his way up, destined for the Presidency. He's the product of years of careful grooming by the Church, and by one Bishop in particular who watches over him and advises him. He does have one problem- he's prone to blackouts in which he makes love to dozens of women- and you can guess from the pictures where some of those women reside.
I won't spoil the plot- such as it is- with further details, but I will note that there are some very dark twists intertwined with the comdey and sexual romps. It's not a film for everyone, but if the description appeals to you... well, you're one of those it's for."
