Playboy Playmate humiliates herself; parents and Hef.
26 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Wheel of Fire, Lynda is in a Road Warrior knock-off in which she is captured and gang-raped by a group of scummy, bearded, tattooed bikers. When first captured, she can be seen on the ground screaming as her top is ripped off, revealing her awesome rack. The leader has his way with her, ties her to the hood of a beat up car and tears around the desert with a still topless Lynda screaming her head off. He then rewards his fat biker worshippers by letting them pin her down and take turns screwing her.

Apparently, the original cut has a much longer rape scene that goes on forever. She is beautiful, but this feature is borderline porn. Obviously working on this film was better than having to sit through it. Don't watch it with a date. it is quite misogynistic.

The film is apparently a bit of an embarrassment to Playboy.
