Erotic Tales: Why Don't We Do It In The Road? (Erotic Tales: Verkehrsinsel)

Verkehrsinsel - as in "Traffic Island" - as in "Middle of the Road" - as in Why Don't We Do It in the Road?

Shot on Potsdamer Platz, the busiest corner in New Berlin, this is where a young couple decide to exercise their sexual fantasies by "doing it" on some public place, just beyond the pale of voyeurs and eavesdroppers.
