SummaryEdit

Susan discovers a porn film, Lesbian Spank Inferno, in Steve’s VCR while Patrick has a new haircut. To avoid a confrontation, Steve tells Susan he loves her, which drives Jane to see her psychologist Jill, who is not interested in having her as her patient. Susan and Steve host a dinner party for Sally, Patrick, Jeff, Jane and Jane’s reluctant psychologist. Before dinner, Jeff and Patrick let slip that they know about the Inferno tape and Sally gives away that Susan has told the girls too, making dinner a very uncomfortable occasion for all. Patrick belives Jill and Jane are a couple and tries to convert her. On the other hand Jill thinks Patrick is gay and tries to convert him. The tape comes into the conversation and Steve ends up giving a speech.

In front of everyone, Susan insists that Steve justify his passion for the offending porn film, Lesbian Spank Inferno. In his impassioned defence of the male sex, Steve accidentally tells Susan that he really does love her.

Embarrassing MomentsEdit

TriviaEdit

The uncertainity of the length of Steve and Jane's relationship continues. In Flushed, it was 4 years, in Sex, Death & Nudity, it was 4.5 years, and in this episode, Jane claims it was 5 years while she's having wine with Susan & Sally.

In 2017, Hustler.com actually produced and released the pornographic film Lesbian Spank Inferno. It follows the plot described in this episode by Steve.
