The Price of Desire


by Tuna

This is a soft-core erotic film which has a better-than-typical plot, and is basically a showcase for genre goddess Kira Reed.

Kira and her husband play a game where they visit a casino separately. She picks up a guy, he watches, and then they run the guy off before things go too far. They find this wildly exciting, but are thinking of taking it to the next level by having her go all the way with the right guy. Enter the owner of the club, who approaches them, and will pay to play their game with them. Kira's husband is unemployed, and the two could use some cash.

Act II is a reworking of Indecent Proposal, except that the husband gets to watch. That is the day he discovers jealousy, and Kira falls for the rich new man. Act III bears no resemblance to Indecent Proposal. Hubby's jealousy destroys the marriage, and she is lured into a permanent three-way with her new lover and his wife, Janine Lindemulder.

Kira's character works as a fashion model dresser, which gives a good excuse to include several other unclothed women in the cast.

If you like the occasional soft-core skin flick, you could do much worse than this one. There is abundant nudity and the women show lots of lovely body parts. The film also has a real (if derivative) plot, an ending which is not completely predictable, and a cast which can deliver lines believably.
