A man and a woman suggest to another couple that they bring several men over for a sex party and the second couple declines; several nights later, the second couple arrives at the first couple's home and finds the man watching as the woman sits on a pool table while a man with his nude back and buttocks to the camera thrusts and she moans and four other men are shirtless and waiting for a turn to have sex with her .- R
