Over the Threshold
It is Devon and Clarissa’s wedding night. The two of them were raised in strict Christian households, and have abstained from sex for their entire lives. In a night that represents the culmination of their repression, Devon is gung-ho and rarin’ to go whereas his new wife Clarissa has trouble letting go of the psychological repercussions of years of abstinence. It’s a story based in truth for many people; a truth that too many are afraid to talk about.
