Compared are the Italian DVD by Raro Video/Nocturno and the German DVD by X-Rated.

The Teenage Prostitution Racket contains of several single episode during which young girls tell about their experience about being a sex slave. Rosina runs away to her aunt in town in order to become a part of her uncle's shady business. Without even knowing it, she falls in love with some pimp who forces her to work for him. At a party, the good little school girl Gisella befriends the wrong people who sell her virginity to the highest bidder. Daniela comes from a good family but the rebelllion against her parents and the love to her john Guido push her into prositution. Then there is also the story of a prostitute who has a dog for protection and her pimp does not like it at all, a woman who loves to have sex outside and also sinful behavior behind convent walls.

The distant narrative style allows a good look into how young girl can wind up as a prostitute without even realizing it before it is too late. The alleged noble intentions of educating are gone pretty fast when the actors start undressing and the movie turns into some kind of exploitation flick.

The first DVD was released by Rorao Video/Nocturno in Italy in April 2005. The DVD only contains Italian audio, there are no subtitles at all. Besides a bonus feature, there are also deleted scene and some of which contain HC scenes. These scenes were shot by Mino Giarda and they were shot for the international market - for countries with less restrictions in particular. Two years later, in May 2007, a German DVD was released by X-Rated. The transfer is one from the Italian DVD but the erotic scenes from the bonus footage are back in the movie. Unfortunately, these deleted scenes have a time stamp and for that reason, the picture has been cropped for the German release - as the subsequent screenshot comparison illustrates.

Other than that, the German DVD is pretty decent though.

In March 2018, Raro Video released a Blu-ray in the US. Even though Raro released the uncut Italian Version on DVD in 2005, some plot is cut on the US Blu-ray. The Blu-ray contains English audio only and it appears the scenes for which there is no English audio are the only ones missing. This is a little disappointing because the Blu-ray is superior to the DVD qualitywise. There are several jump cuts on the DVD that do not exist on the Blu-ray.
