3 art students have a threesome - because one boy is impotent - and his friend (being the good lad that he is) steps in to help and satisfy the lusty girl. Yes, it is as ridiculous as it sounds....and, rest assured, it's all going to end in tears.
Why the young chap doesn't go to the doctor's surgery to sort out his flaccid problem is never explained, is it psychological or physical? We shall never know, not that anyone will lose any sleep over it!...
These three just keep on painting and bonking and discussing their menage...endlessly.
It's predictable...and, for a threesome, incredibly boring.


The(ir) Blurb...

An art student surprises his classmate and fellow artist by keeping the portrait he has painted of her when she believed she would own it after it was completed. The surprising turn of events continues into a seductive love triangle between her, him and a third student.
