Ava is a well-known erotic novelist working on her latest book. When she writes her sex scenes, they are always based on her own experiences.

A desire that Ava is more then happy to explore with him!
"Empowering Ava", is director Angie Rowntree's first VR movie. “We’re still experimenting and familiarizing ourselves with the technology, but I'm very intriqued with dynamic storytelling and the possibilities it brings. This new medium really does open up a whole new world. A world where the viewer can become an immersed participant in the story, instead of just being a bystander. It’s pretty exciting. It challenges our perception of cinema” Rowntree said.
Empowering Ava: A Virtual Reality Experience is a co-production between PervOut.Com and Sssh.Com
