Synopsis by Mark Deming

Ted V. Mikels wrote and directed this sexploitation opus about a couple whose marriage is severely tested when they move to the Big City. Cliff (Phillip Brady, aka Gary Kent) is a top Midwest salesman for a metal manufacturing firm who is rewarded for his hard work with a new assignment -- working at the company's main office in Los Angeles. Cliff and his wife Mindy (Lee Anna) settle into the new apartment a company representative has picked out for them and soon they meet Joanie (Maureen Gaffney), their next door neighbor. Cliff is intrigued to discover Joanie works as an exotic dancer at a nightclub run by her attractive but hard-edged roommate Tanya (Verne Martine). Cliff and Mindy pay a visit to the club and Cliff likes what he sees; before long he's jumped head-first into the swinging California lifestyle, spending his spare time at Tanya's club and having an affair with his secretary, while Mindy strikes up a friendship with Joanie, who encourages her to let her wild side run free. Meanwhile, we learn that Tanya does more than just run a nightspot; she also works as a dominatrix, eagerly abusing men for the right price. When a celebration over landing a new account turns into an orgy at Cliff and Mindy's place, Cliff tries to seduce Joanie and Mindy performs a drunken strip-tease for the guests; both actions have regrettable consequences for all involved.
