LA LUCHA CON LA PANTERA (1975): Sexualized Mexican Schoolgirls Desire Men

Here's the translation of the plot summary posted on IMDB for La Lucha Con La Pantera (1975):
Life in the 1970s was not easy. And three examples will stand out as cruel glimpses into the wasted life of youth. Three young girls whose lives seem to be forgotten: 
Ana (Mildred Macías), one of them, has suicidal tendencies; 
Mercedes (Marissa Makendosky ), the second, experiences an incestuous attraction for her brother Guillermo (Enrique Novi); and, the third, 
Patricia (Rocío Brambila) longs to be sexually abused, as she reads in her fotonovelas

To elaborate, Ana stalks her literature profesor, which leads to kino on a public bench.

Much like in non-fiction, Ana, the coed, initiated the affair, but the teacher didn't have enough self-control to repel the nymphet's advances. 

Similar to the nymphet fantasies spelled out in Nancy Friday's My Secret Garden: Women’s Sexual Fantasies, Mercedes stalks her brother, which leads to a passionate incestuous kiss. 

And Patricia's desire to be sexually abused leads to autoerotism. 

In addition to the (middle) schoolgirl teleiophilia, the fact that the nymphets appeared to be Mexicans of European descent was striking. 

La Lucha Con La Pantera (1975) was directed by Alberto Bojórquez Patron and adapted from a novellas by José de la Colina.
