She gets $800 a trick but it's not about the money for her. She just has an urge to have sex with lots of women. Now either the concussion has spurred a bout of bizarre behavior or the promiscuity is about filling a hole in herself, looking for some kind of meaning in her life. Whichever we watch multiple scenes of lesbian sex (no genitals but lots of breasts and bottoms and thrashing around)until her partner finds out, is sad and the lesbian mom goes back to being monogamous. It's not clear whether she stops her promiscuity because her lover finds out or because her need to have sex with multiple partners has simply worn out.
Best part of story, including ending: Well people are promiscuous for lots of different reasons. It would have been nice to find out why this woman was. But no explanation is given. I may be alone here but watching many scenes of simulated sex, gay or straight, bores me.

Best scene in story: One of her tricks is an overweight college girl. She found out this girl was trying to lose weight with dangerous fasts and she talked her out of it.

Opinion about the main character: She insisted on meeting her tricks beforehand. And she seemed to care about them a little. That made me like her.
