Teaser Storyline for Pamela Pamela You Are ...
Pamela Browning is a lovely, young, wealthy woman. She is married to a successful professional man. Their style of living is elegant-a beautiful upper class home, a Bentley with a chauffeur, everything a woman could want. But Pamela is restless. She has no children but her husband has a daughter, Susan, who is a potential rival and a present reminder of the fun and daring of youth. Pamela feels unfulfilled, unproductive and she fears that she is growing into a stagnant, unhappy middle age.
At a risque party, Pamela meets a very attractive and dashing young man, Calvin Miller. She thinks no more about him but he shows up at her home after the party and proceeds to take over an invitation for morning coffee and to turn that into a ridiculous breakfast, complete with champagne and even spaghetti to go with the three dozen eggs he has made for the two of them. From this, it is an easy path to Pamela's bedroom.
She sees in Calvin, the youth she seeks. She sees, literally, while she is in his arms, the real and fantasized boys and men in her life.
At the height of their love-making, Susan arrives home, unexpectedly. Calvin is able to smoothly lie and account for his presence in the house and now he makes a well received play for the younger girl. With both women in his clutches, he is able to do what he wishes with them. Susan wants him as a summer fling and nothing more, even though she is quite under his spell. For Pamela, it is a different matter. She is desperate and she allows herself to be dominated by him, completely, even enjoying his domination, his physical attack upon her.
Calvin throws a party at Pamela's home and invites a number of his reckless, deviate and debauched friends. The party is beyond all bounds of Pamela's usual propriety in social affairs. There are fights, sex-motivated games, sadistically oriented encounters, depravities of every description. Pamela tries to go along, it all seems like fun. Calvin, to top off his conquests tries to con Susan, who arrives home in the midst of his party, into taking an hallucinogenic drug. When she is afraid, he persuades Pamela to try it. While he goes off with Susan, Pamela fearfully anticipates the effects of the drug and searches for him to guide her. When she finds him in a parked car with Susan, her humiliation is complete . . . .
