Cheating Notes

Alma (Salma Hayek) gets seduced and starts dating an older, seemingly rich man while her boyfriend is in the USA. She makes out with him at 1:19:00 at his place but leaves when she finds out that the place is a brothel for rich clientele. She comes back and fucks him at 1:25:25 (non-nude). She then becomes a courtesan, but we don't see her service any client.
