In Vinegar Syndrome's first PEEKARAMA 3 UNIT! SHOW, they present more of the works of Anthony Spinelli.  In CRY FOR CINDY, hairdresser Ann (Hustler Honey Amber Hunt) starts turning tricks to help pay for her boyfriend's medical school tuition and then gets lost in a whirlpool of wealthy clients, kinks, and pimps that has only one way out.  In TOUCH ME, Dr. Lloyd Davis conducts an encounter group to help a group of sexy strangers face their sexual hangups head on.  Rene Bond, Sandy Dempsey, Ric Lutze, Suzanne Fields, Richard Smedley, and George "Buck" Flower star.  Finally in the long lost AN ACT OF CONFESSION - sadly available only in its softcore cut - Sister Beatrice thinks becoming a Bride of Christ will solve her sensual yearnings for men and women alike but it only exacerbates her wild fantasies.  Her confessions tempt others and it may take the lord himself to satisfy her.
