The year is 40,000. Peacefully floating around in zero gravity, Lily (Jane Fonda) is suddenly interrupted by a call from the President of the Earth. A young scientist, Duran-Duran, is threatening the ancient universal peace and Lily is the chosen one to find him and save the world. During her mission, Lily never finds herself in a situation where it isn't possible to lose at least part of her already minimal dressing.

Lily is another of those soft porn sci-fi flicks and contains nothing much other than 4 sex scenes (dependent upon your definition of sex) interspersed with dressing, undressing and tearing off clothes. The alleged plot has only one True Hero, Angel Pygar, who is otherwise a non-participant. For a sub-plot, there are so-called heroes, apparently named after sex toys, revolting against a Lesbian Tyrant Queen. They mercifully perish. Pompous villain Duran-Duran is so stuffy and vain as to make him harmless, even if he were to succeed, and despite his worst intentions. Director Vadim, Fonda's hubby, is flagrantly showing her so as to say "This is what I keep in my bed!"

However, despite being a mindless flick, this movie has redeeming qualities if viewed on a deeper level - that is, what Fonda & Vadim say through Lily about the Women's Liberation Movement throughout the four episodes of sex:

Sex Scene #1 - Lily hitches a ride to town with the local male baby sitter at the cost of a hot sweaty afternoon of passion. No vows of celibacy are being kept here. Loverboy is unsophisticated (doesn't know what the Sex Pill is for) and crude, but charming. Mutual sexploitation nets Lily new clothes and a ride to town. Lily lustfully rises/sinks to the task at hand. Some would use the nasty word "Prostitution" to describe what happened. Worse/Better (depending on your preferences) is yet to come.

Sex Scene #2 - Lily cheers Pygar the Angel so he can fly again. In addition to the issues of Sex Scene #1, we find that Pygar is of a different species, the last of his kind. Some would use the ugly word "Beastiality" to describe this. I am going to be generous and treat Lily as Female Sexual Predator who uses Sexploitation to take advantage of a man of different race in a moment of weakness. Isn't the Women's Movement against sexploitation of anybody?

Sex Scene #3 - The Sex Pill. An attempt to be kinky that mercifully fails. Instead, it is silly. It would be more palatable, however, to the Women's Movement to use the Great Lesbian Tyrant instead of that stooge of a "Good Guy" revolutionary.

Sex Scene #4 - Death by Orgasm. Duran-Duran puts Lily into the Orgasmatron, the Ultimate Sex Toy, to drive her beyond her tolerance level of Pleasure & Shame, and to remove her clothes. Lily's pleasure tolerance is off-scale, and her sense of shame is non-existent. When the "Killer Orgasm" occurs, the machine overheats & shorts. Allegorically, does this mean that Fonda & Vadim enjoy betraying the Women's Movement so much and with so little shame that they want Women's Lib to Short-Out?

What was Vadim thinking here? Any self-respecting, liberated wife would have Bobbitized him for that!
