Off somewhere in the middle of the desert sits the Bar None Dude Ranch, a cathouse for all men…and women. With the law in their pocket and a carefree daily lifestyle, their on-site working girls have it pretty easy. The only problem is a shortage of clients. But when a trio of dim-witted city folk arrive at the ranch, hoping for a more conventional western getaway experience, they quickly find themselves in the midst of a carnal getaway, the likes of which they could never have expected, all the while the new girl, Jennie, whose husband wants her to give up her life at the brothel, is starting to have doubts on her chosen profession, but can’t decide if she’s ready to give up easy money for the prospect of true love.
