Despite being vulgar, crude, brazen and not particularly handsome. Daryl rules to be able to tap into innermose emotions of the three friends, and such as rules to seduce each. In turn, the three women blossoms emotionally and sexually. After an incident involving one of the town's leading citizens, the ultra conservative Felicia Alden, the three women begin to understand how and why Daryl is able to mesmerize them so fully. The three decide to try with some teenages learned instraightly from Daryl so that they can hopefully regain control of their own lives.
