Brazilian legend Helena Ramos stars in this highly erotic coming-of-age tale. An innocent young girl becomes pregnant and her newborn child requires life saving medical care. Cast out by her family, her desperation brings her to a high-class brothel where she sells her flesh to the highest bidders. A lurid tale of a woman who uses her body to save the lives of both herself and her child, VOLUPIA DE MULHER is a characteristic example of Brazil's Pornochanchada period (of the late-1970s to mid-1980s). These films pushed the boundaries of what could be portrayed on screen in a overwhelmingly Catholic country.
