Introduction by David Church, PhD*
A sexually liberated woman (Jennifer Jordan) returns home to a small fishing village and sets off a chain reaction of unleashed desire among her former classmates and friends. But has the notorious Abigail Lesley come back to free the sexually repressed peers who drove her out of town or to seek retribution for their hypocrisy? This emotionally sensitive, softcore potboiler from erotic master Joe Sarno features a skilled cast of Golden Age adult stars, including Rebecca Brooke, Eric Edwards, Jennifer Welles, Sonny Landham, and Jamie Gillis.
