When the movie begins, Abigail Clayton, playing a nineteen year old wannabe actress named Thomasina, and her boyfriend Ken Scudder are fooling around. He throws her onto the bed and fucks her missionary style, while the credits play out over top of them. Ken licks at her pussy a bit and they move into a sixty-nine and then she rides him reverse cowgirl style until he blows his load onto her mound. They lay in bed, he tells her what a wild chick she is, and he proposes to her but she declines. After they talk about her career, he heads off to the office.
Abigail takes a nice leisurely bike ride and winds up and Clair Dia's place. They talk and then strip down and make out with each other. Abigail eats her out and then sits on Clair's face so that she can return the oral favors. Once they've made one another come, they talk about how to get into movies, which is Abigail's dream. From here we cut a scene where Abigail is fantasizing about being in the hot tub with a big time movie star played by the unlikely candidate of Joey Silvera. He sucks her tits and then they move out of the tub to a bed where he fucks her missionary style. She rides him cowgirl style and then gets down on all fours for some doggy style fun. He pulls out and strokes off onto her ass cheeks and then we segue back to reality where Abigail is masturbating on the bed.

We cut to the massage parlor where Abigail is employed. Turk Lyon, sporting some huge sunglasses, walks up to her and says 'You'll do' and she heads into a room with him. She gives him a massage and he wants a happy ending. She's not into the idea at first but soon comes around to it and gives him a blowjob. It turns out he's an adult film producer and he offers her a small part in it. She agrees and shows up at the set the next day where she gives some guy a blowjob before letting him fuck her doggy style and then missionary style until he finishes up and shoots onto her stomach. She leaves for the day and drives her VW Bug to a theater where she sees meets her friend, Sarah Mills who talks about some time she spend with a man played by John Leslie. We see them making out, then he eats her pussy and she rides him cowgirl style until he finishes. After that, Sarah tells her to practice her acting skills if she wants to make it.
After driving around and then walking around trying to figure out what to do about her career, she has a freak out and runs to a pay phone where she makes a call to Ken Scudder. Meanwhile, in a theater, Annette Haven and John Leslie are watching the movie that Abigail appeared in. They then head back to a house where they hope into bed. She gives him head, rides him reverse cowgirl style, and then gets fucked doggy style and missionary style. After arguing with Scudder, poor distressed Abigail talks to her friend while Annette and John Leslie are having a three way with Sarah Mills which we see in flashback. After that, there's a knock on the door, and it's Leslie and Annette, wanting to get Abigail into the movie they're making. Cut to the HOLLYWOOD sign and cue Joey Silvera, cause after some awesome stock footage inserts of the Paramount Studios lot, Abigail strips for Joey in the dressing room so that he can eat her out and she can finally make it as the actress she's always wanted to be.
Featuring some nice location footage of Los Angeles circa 1978, this Alan B. Colberg directed picture doesn't break much new ground in the plot department but it's a reasonably well directed picture with some better than average performances from an A-list cast of late seventies adult film superstars. Abigail Clayton and Annette Haven both look truly beautiful here, and they simply ooze sex appeal whenever they shed their duds for the camera. The story is a typical 'want to make it as an actress' story where the heroine gets used a couple of times before wising up and figuring out how to play the game but the cast make this one enjoyable. The sex scenes are well shot and while they might not be as plentiful as other XXX films of the era, there's a welcome chemistry to them that makes them more erotic than they would be otherwise.
Naked Afternoon is presented fullframe in what looks to be its original aspect ratio. There are mild compression artifacts evident throughout the movie and there are some noticeable macro-blocking issues as well. The colors are off in tint and hue and everything looks very soft. Detail is washed out and two or three times during playback a 'Copyright 2008 VCX' bug appears on the bottom of the screen. This interlaced tape sourced transfer is hardly impressive.
The English language Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack does fair a little bit better than the video on this release, though it too leaves plenty of room for improvement. There's background hiss throughout the but once the movie starts you won't have any problem following it. Make no mistake, this mix doesn't sound good, but at least you can understand the performers. Faint praise, mind you, but it gets the job done.
VCX have supplied a few minor supplements on this release starting with some bonus scenes, the first of which is from Eruption and features John Holmes getting a blowjob. A giant 'ERUPTION' logo appears on the bottom of the screen for the duration, which is really annoying. The second bonus scene is from Too Hot To Touch and it features Jamie Gillis fucking a cute blonde ski bunny in his office, pulling out just in time to blow a load on her face. The third bonus scene is taken from Perfect Partners, an eighties era shot on video movie. This scene features Amber Lynn and Joey Silvera who go at it in the bedroom for a bit until she sucks him to a finish. The final bonus scene is from Suzie Superstar and it stars Shauna Grant and Ron Jeremy. Shauna takes off her top and drops to her knees to give Ron head. She sucks him off for a while and he strokes off onto her ample and lovely cleavage.
Also included are trailers for Extreme Facials, Suzie Superstar, Expose Me Now, and Eruption in addition to chapter selection and some really ugly animated motion menus.
A well acted and well shot porno with a plot, Naked Afternooon is a fun vintage smut movie with some good performances and nice location shooting. VCX's DVD isn't particularly impressive but the movie is worth a watch and so its recommended for classic smut fans for that reason alone.
