She is only a little surprised by how highly erotically charged she becomes, and of her surrender to the unusual situation she finds herself in.Petra realises her inhibitions are unhelpful and goes about exploring her desires and feelings as she is introduced to an adults-only playground for the pursuit of every kind of consensual sexual pleasure and practice.

She finds her experiences deeply satisfying and rewarding, although sometimes challenging. She reaches a new acceptance of herself through her widely divergent experiences.

She experiences extraordinary states of blissful sexual fulfilment as she is transported on ecstatic journeys to the very edge of creation. She gains new insights into her feelings from this other realm of being which exists outside her ordinary awareness and perceptions. Petra develops a deeper understanding of life’s lessons, and what she gets and wants out of her closest relationships. And she enjoys a variety of deeply satisfying experiences along the way.
