Bordellet (1972) is a Danish, theatrical sex comedy film made by pornographic pioneer Ole Ege and notable for being Denmark's first full-length hardcore pornographic feature film.

The story takes place around 1900 and involves a young girl, a bordello and a hidden treasure.

Typical for Danish hardcore sex comedies of the 1970s, the production was not cut off from using talent from the mainstream film industry. The crew included cinematographer Morten Arnfred, also known for the TV-miniseries The Kingdom (1994). The cast includes comedian Gotha Andersen, a popular mainstream film and television actor.

The film started a decade-long tradition for Danish hardcore sex comedies.


At the film's release party, famous Danish millionaire Simon Spies showed up, took off his clothes and started having sex with members of the film's female cast, in front of the press. The resulting photos naturally made front page news and are still reprinted frequently.
