If you've got a drama section, that's where this belongs.
Chris Cannon's got a hooker problem, which seems to have started as an obsession with practitioner Lezley Zen, who really knew how to get Cannon off ... with her feet. He frequently watches a vid of their time together and seems to be obsessed with recreating the magic with more pros, provided by pimp Eric Masterson - like Michelle Michaels, who tortures Cannon with a hot coat hanger and drips candle wax on him in the opener before they get down to reverse cowgirl, doggie and mish. Can you say "S/M"?
Cannon confides his pain to old pal Kira Kener, who just happens to be Masterson's abused girlfriend - Masterson fucks new recruit Cherokee doggie-style without Kener knowing and sets Kener up with his new pimping partner Nick Manning - so Kener tries to set Cannon up with "nice girl" Ashley Blue.
We won't reveal all the plot elements here, since it's definitely worth watching this "meller drammer" (as they used to say in Old Hollywood) to see what director David Stanley does with it - but be prepared: It ain't a pretty story.
What is pretty - or at least interesting - is what Stanley's done with the music. The atonal sounds that accompany the Cherokee/Masterson scene held our attention to the action, and the score for the rest of the feature is likewise attractive enough to warrant a Best Music pre-nom.
