  • Description

    Story about a "health machine".

    Woman demonstrates a very bizarre contraption. It is made of metal and the woman is strapped to it by her arms and legs. She swings to and fro on the gizmo, eventually turning herself upside down. It is a little bit like a gyroscope.

    Intertitle quips: "There are more revolutions in this machine than in the whole of South America." Woman twists and turns holding on to the bars. "Every part of the body is exercised during these revolutions" said Dr Fried, the inventor." Woman demonstrates another variation on the exercises. A man and a woman exercise on the strange machine together - very bizarre! Two men then exercise together.

    Kinky!
