Victoria Voeght, a naïve seventeen year-old raised by a wealthy widower, moves into a freshman dorm and pledges a sorority. At her first mixer, a friendly senior hands her a can of cola laced with Rohypnol, and chats with her until she fades from consciousness. He eases her to his bedroom, then shares her with several fraternity brothers. Two of them later help the injured and comatose coed back to her sorority. Following emergency surgery and eight years of intense psychotherapy, Victoria acts on the philosophy: Never hold a grudge. Just get even. Through revenge you may learn to forgive.

Philip Andrew Carter watched the handsome young woman brush her lips lightly across his hairy round belly then raise her head and smile at him. He felt her fingernail touch his most sensitive place before she pushed herself off the bed. He frowned.
"I must visit the other room a moment, counselor." She looked down at his groin then met his eyes. She smiled and said, "You stay just as you are. I promise I'll be right back."
Mildly perturbed with the interruption, Philip's eyes measured the potential barely concealed by Victoria's white silk bra and panties. "And I promise I'll be right here." He pushed his tongue between his lips and wagged it back and forth.
Philip watched Victoria wink then turn away. He studied her muscular legs and firm buttocks as she walked to her purse on the dresser opposite the queen bed. He smirked approvingly after she disappeared around the divider wall to the dressing area.
When Philip heard the toilet door close, he reached for the mints he had previously moved from the pillows to the bedside table. He unwrapped both and popped them into his mouth. While they melted, he grabbed the bottle of Johnny Walker Black Label he had ordered from room service, unscrewed the cap, and sucked an ounce directly from the bottle.
Philip closed his eyes and felt the bed move. He enjoyed the float resulting from two happy hour doubles, half a bottle of burgundy with his prime rib and baked potato, and three after dinner scotches.
Ah! he thought. A great meal. Good booze. What should be magnificent sex. It doesn't get any better than this!
Philip belched softly, scratched his belly where the woman had kissed him, and sucked down another ounce of scotch. He had no inkling the woman planned to amputate his swollen penis.
