When her friend and ex Lisa (Liliana Komorowska) walks in and sees them, she tells Isabel, ‘I can’t believe you’re doing this. We date real women.’
Isabel seeks the young woman out at the club that night and then enjoys a strap on for the first time. She is nervous about it, but later she dresses up in a suit as well, experimenting with what that feels like. (AB)
