Storyline

Abby lives with her lesbian domestic partner and their young son. However, Abby and her girl's long stable relationship has become passionless, and Abby is slowly becoming sexually frustrated. Abby's son hits her on the head by accident one day with his baseball and she suffers a mild concussion. This gets her thinking and she decides that she shouldn't repress her urges anymore. She hooks up with a young cute gentle and experienced lesbian prostitute, who sleeps with lonely women, and has a fantastic sexual and emotional experience. She becomes fascinated with the idea of helping other lonely women feel such joy and fulfillment, so she decides to get into the business herself under the pseudonym Eleanor. Her clients are both introverted women, who wish to explore their urges, and sexually aggressive women who know exactly what they and even Abby want. She learns more about herself and others after each sexual encounter. But how long can she live a double life before she's caught.

Came for the boobs stayed for a great story
14 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

After getting a knock to the head a bored lesbian house-wife becomes a suburban hooker in an attempt to give her life meaning. She has to work her new hobby around a somewhat standard life.

I'm not going to lie, the only reason I put this on is because I fancied some girl-on-girl action. There is some, but this film is much more.

The story is pretty straight forward but engaging and lean. The characters are absolutely fantastic and I was soon drawn into the lives of the central character, her loved ones and her clients.

Most of the weight rests firmly on the shoulders of Robin Weigert, who makes this look very easy. She manages to portray a certain apathy with her life, that is strong enough for her to take action but never strays into depression.

She is also physically well suited, she does look like a stereotypical suburban mother - but she is easy on the eye when it comes to the sex scenes.

A great watch, there is some eroticism but mostly fantastic characters and simple but elegant story.
