Chuck Johnson arranges erotic happenings in the family guesthouse while his curious younger sister, Tangi, peeks through the window. Their eldest brother Kelly returns from a tour of duty in Vietnam to a homecoming planned by Chuck. The uninhibited guests enjoy a variety of erotic activities; several girls strip off each other's clothes and join the party. Tangi surprises Kelly in his room taking a "fix"; wounded in combat, he has become an addict, but he remains a hero to his sister. The following afternoon, Chuck conducts "The Initiation," an erotic beer-drinking contest. The first person to down a glass of beer removes an article of clothing from "the initiation girl." The participant who removes her last article of clothing wins the girl. Ray, a member of the orgy group, finds Tangi spying through the window and attacks her. Chuck hears her screams and comes to her aid. The fight is halted by Kelly's arrival in the custody of two narcotics agents; he was arrested while trying to buy some heroin.
