After growing up in a conservative home, a sexually repressed Anna Lee (Maddy O'Reilly) seeks help in the most unlikely of places—an unconventional therapy practice called the Variel House. Known for taking a very hands-on approach to treatment, the Variel House pushes patients to their sexual limits through a variety of exercises geared at helping them confront their fears. It is during these exercises that Anna Lee is paired up with Emmett (Xander Corvus), a patient battling his own demons, and the two forge an unlikely friendship. Together they share their most intimate secrets and hidden desires while navigating an intensely provocative road towards sexual freedom. But when their erotic journey proves too challenging for Emmett to handle, Anna is left wondering whether true liberation can only be found on one's own.
Jacky St. James has penned and directed a true erotic wonder in this tale of a woman who becomes at peace with her sexuality. Having grown up in a conservative, sexually repressed home with an abusive mother, lead Maddy O’Reilly goes to a group treatment home run by AVN MILF Performer of the Year India Summer and AVN Hall of Fame performer Steven St. Croix. There, she receives help overcoming her fear of being sexual through guided sexual experiences. Note that bondage and penetration occur simultaneously in this—know your local laws regarding this material before choosing to stock this excellent title.
Summer blindfolds O’Reilly and has her blindly grope Johnny Castle to make her more comfortable with a man’s anatomy. O’Reilly then sits and listens as Summer and Castle fuck near her. Castle fucks Summer’s pussy well and the kink factor of O’Reilly sitting nearby and doing nothing cannot be ignored.
Fellow sexually troubled soul Xander Corvus tells Summer of having hooker Natalia Starr tied to his bed for ten hours before their hot vag coupling. This is a very hot fuck with Starr working Corvus’ dick hard.
O’Reilly fantasizes about Corvus and gets to massage his back with oil in an exercise, but her fear of giving in to her urges makes her hold back from letting Corvus fuck her. As a group exercise, O’Reilly is bound to a Saint Andrew’s cross and pleasured with a toy in her twat by St. Croix, Summer, Castle and Jessa Rhodes. When Corvus and O’Reilly reunite after some time apart, their fuck is emotionally incendiary and meaningful. Corvus is handcuffed while O’Reilly sucks him, and their vag where she is bound is wonderful.
