While the last story was moderately entertaining, I don't think I laughed once throughout

Funny, but the conceit gets tiresome after a while.

Extraordinarily uneven & not as funny as it wants to be. Not his best.

One of the funniest, smartest sex comedies ever. Mad props to Woody for pulling it off.
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) (1972) is Woody Allen's fourth film, consisting of a series of short sequences loosely inspired by Dr. David Reuben's book of the same name.
The film was an early smash for Allen, grossing over $18 million in the U.S. alone against a $2 million budget.
The credits at the start and close of the film are played over a backdrop of a large mass of white rabbits, to the tune of Let's Misbehave by Cole Porter.
The film is divided into seven vignettes, as follows:
The film currently has a rating of 89% in Rotten Tomatoes, based on 19 reviews.
An August 1972 review by Time said that many of the film's ideas "sound good on paper" but that the "skits wind down rather than take off from the ideas"; the film includes "some broad, funny send-ups of other movies (Fantastic Voyage, La notte), and its fair share of memorably wacky lines" but that "overall it is just Woody marking time and being merely a little funnier".
