Lusty Crest

Lusty Crest

A young woman named Kasha tries to escape her romantic past by starting over as a maid at a love hotel called Lusty Crest. But she soon discovers that the hotel is plagued by lecherous peeping toms, a staff with powers of mind control, and an owner, Mr. Josh, whose magic tricks have quite a seductive quality. If that weren't enough, Kasha soon finds that the hotel was built on top of the earth's Sex Core, and the spirits lurking there are desperate to be set free. Meanwhile, a pair of guests has witnessed some supernatural activity, and Mr. Josh and staff must "take care of them" the only way they know how--by using powers they have harnessed from the sensual spirits.
