David and Janie, a normal, happily married young couple, are singled out and kidnaped by a sex cult led by Persephone, "The Whiplady," the secret club's most sadistic member, to participate in the group's perverted sex rites. David and Janie are at first horrified, but soon Persephone degrades them so that they slavishly respond to the unexpected desires she has awakened in them. Completely disoriented, the two choose suicide as an escape from the degradation forced upon them by the group. This double suicide reinforces Persephone's belief in moral corruptibility, and the cult walks away from the death scene, already planning for their next victims.
Also known as Lost Weekend.
