Las que empiezan a los quince años (1978): The Beginning [of Prostitution] at Age 15 [in Spain]

Elisa, a 15-Year-Old Prostitute in Spain

As there doesn't appear to be any subtitles and despite the fact that I'm from New York, I was able to understand very little of Spain's Las que empiezan a los quince años (1978) [English: The Beginning at Age 15]; therefore, I had to rely on Andrabem's post on IMDB for a synopsis. Andrambem posted:

"Las que empiezan a los quince años" tells the story of the sexual adventures of three fifteen-year-old girls: Elisa, Marian and Susi.

Elisa lives with her father and her stepmother. Her father, drown in debts by reason of bad business decisions, has to run away from his debtors. Elisa remains with her stepmother that has no love left for her. Soon Elisa is out in the streets. One of the roads left for her is [teen] prostitution. Her life will be one of many adventures and misadventures.

[Elisa is in the above screenshot collage. She was either seduced or raped by almost every middle-aged man she encountered. And Susi couldn't keep her hands off of Elisa as well.]

Marian, very early in her life, became a prostitute. She had known a good-looking guy in a party. She falls in love with him, but in reality he's a pimp. One day they have a fight and Marian decides to become independent. She opens the doors of the cars and ask the drivers if they want some company. On seeing this beautiful Lolita, many say that, yes, they could do with a bit of company.

Susi's family has no financial problems. Her father works a lot and is always absent, but her mother likes and understands her. Susi likes girls. She sometimes plays innocent little [lesbian] games with Elisa and Marian.

The film offers a rosy vision of [teen] prostitution, but anyway it had no intention at all of being a documentary. The film wants to titillate, and it delivers. The [teen] girls frequently take off their clothes, make love, laugh...
