The biggest stars, best directors, and highest production values; that is a QUALITY X film. These deluxe Blu-ray editions of some of the genre's masterpieces, along with plenty of hidden gems, offer beautiful restorations and plentiful bonus features, all presented in homage to its namesake of esteemed New York film distributor, Mature Pictures, the company which almost single handedly raised the bar for outstanding sex films, and whose films will be included in this fittingly elegant collection.

After virginal teenybopper Joy is assaulted by a trio of burglars, she finds herself in an unexpected predicament: she wants more! Unsatisfied by her prudish and inexperienced boyfriend, Joy sets out across Manhattan to seduce any and every man she can find, while unwittingly setting into motion a wave of female sexual liberation that sends the entire city of New York into an orgiastic frenzy. With pleasure way up and crime way down, everyone is happy, except of course for the NYPD and stuck up Lt. Handcock, who becomes increasingly concerned that all of the carefree sex going on will put him out of a job…

A patently bizarre mix of raucous sex comedy and thoughtful commentary on contemporary mores, with hefty helping of “sticking it” to the man anti-authoritarianism, Joel Bender's (Gas Pump Girls) debut feature film, JOY, stars Sharon Mitchell (Maniac) in one of her first starring roles along with Crystal Sync (Punk Rock), Richard Bolla (Indecent Exposure), Jake Teague (A Woman’s Torment) and many others. Working from a witty and fast paced script co-authored by Bender, along with slick cinematography and tight editing, JOY is a witty, and unexpectedly heartfelt classic which makes its Blu-ray debut from Quality X, newly restored from its 35mm Interpositive and including a comprehensive slate of exclusive interviews.
