Synopsis by Robert Firsching

Cult Staten Island filmmaker Andy Milligan directed this exploitation film, one of his rare non-horror efforts. The fleshpot in question is Dusty Cole (Diana Lewis), who runs out on her surly lover and takes to prostitution, moving in with an aging drag queen (Lynn Flanagan) who hustles as well. Dusty sleeps with a rough customer named Jimmie (Paul Matthews), who beats her with a belt and then sets up a group-date at a poker party. In the meantime, Dusty meets Bob (Bob Walters), who lives on Staten Island and promises her a way out of the hustling life. Alas, a series of unforeseen complications arises. An obligatory in-joke has a character suggest going to a double-feature horror show of Milligan's Torture Dungeon and Bloodthirsty Butchers.
