Five lads receive detentions for such infractions as posing as a doctor during girls’ breast examinations and straying into the gals’ locker room. Responsible for the boys’ plight is snooty homecoming queen Purity Busch, evidently the only female virgin left at the school. Five guys dedicate themselves to de-purifying her, and remainder of the film describes their goonlike attempts on her innocence.

Film was lensed in Toronto, which can only make one wonder why all these studies of randy young Americans come from north of the border.
