DESCRIPTION
An orgy scene. On this side, we see two heterosexual couplings on each end, in each of which an ithyphallic youth pursues a slave girl who attempts to escape. In the middle, another youth in his excitement presses his groin up against the buttocks of the youth pursuing the girl at the right. As on Side A, the suggestion is that bisexual pleasures mingled freely.
