Three thrill-seeking go-go dancers — Billie (Lori Williams), Rosie (Haji), and their leader, Varla (Tura Satana) — encounter a young couple in the desert while drag racing. Go-Go dancers are Dancers who are employed to entertain at a Discotheque. Drag racing is a competition in which objects compete to be the first to cross a set finish mark usually from a dead stop and in a straight line After killing the boyfriend (Ray Barlow) with her bare hands, Varla drugs, binds, gags and kidnaps his girlfriend, Linda (Susan Bernard). Susan Bernard (born February 11, 1948) was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for its December 1966 issue On a desolate highway, the four stop at a gas station, where they see an old man (Stuart Lancaster) and his muscular, dimwitted son, known as the Vegetable (Dennis Busch). Stuart Gage Lancaster ( 30 November 1920 – 22 December 2000) was an American Actor known for roles in Russ Meyer The gas station attendant (Mickey Foxx) tells the women that the old man and his two sons live on a decrepit ranch with a hidden cache of money.
Intrigued, Varla hatches a scheme to rob the lecherous old man, who is confined to a wheelchair. A wheelchair is a wheeled Mobility device in which the user sits While Varla and her lover Rosie case the ranch, Billie is charged with guarding Linda and sent to distract the Vegetable. As Billie is seducing the Vegetable, Linda sits with the old man, who tries to rape her. When Billie and the Vegetable hear a scream, they stop their tryst; after finding that Linda has run away, they set out after her. While trying to escape, Linda encounters the old man's other son, Kirk (Paul Trinka), driving toward the ranch. Not knowing who he is or where he is going, she jumps in his truck and begs him to save her. She tells him how Varla killed her boyfriend and kidnapped her. He assures her that she will be safe with him and takes her back to the ranch. Linda, upset and aghast, is reunited with Varla, who tells Kirk the girl is mentally unstable after seeing her boyfriend killed in a racing accident. She concocts a story about Linda being from a socially prominent family who has hired the three women to return her quietly.
The women are invited to the house for lunch. During a mealtime conversation laden with sexual innuendo, they learn that the old man hates the Vegetable because his mother died giving birth to him. An innuendo (also called insinuation) is a remark or question typically disparaging that works obliquely by Allusion. After Billie gets drunk and recklessly hints at the real reason behind Linda's presence, Varla slaps her. The outburst upsets Linda, who screams that Varla is a murderer. Believing that Linda is hysterical, the men ignore her claims. After a few drinks, Billie gets completely drunk and passes out.
Meanwhile, Varla seduces Kirk, much to Rosie's dismay. The old man and the Vegetable begin yelling that Linda has escaped again and drive off in pursuit. Once they catch Linda, the old man encourages the Vegetable to sexually assault her. After a brief struggle, Linda expects the Vegetable to rape her. Kirk and Varla arrive, and Kirk rushes to save Linda. Much to everyone's surprise, the Vegetable does not harm Linda. Instead, he falls down sobbing and begging for forgiveness, disgusting his perverse father.
The old man decides that the girls are too much trouble and orders them to leave his land. To Varla's annoyance, Kirk no longer seems attracted to her, and now seems to believe Linda's story. When Varla tells Billie and Rosie to prepare to leave, Billie announces she is leaving the gang. As Billie is walking away, Varla takes Rosie's knife and throws it into Billie's back, killing her.
When the old man and the Vegetable see Billie's corpse, the old man again orders the girls to leave. Varla uses her car to play a game of cat and mouse with the old man in his wheelchair while the Vegetable is distracted by Billie's corpse, which he cradles in mourning. The old man tries to roll into the house, but his wheelchair gets stuck. Varla runs him over with her car and his wheelchair flies apart, revealing the money hidden under the seat of the chair. Varla tells Rosie to retrieve the knife while she collects the money. Rosie asks the Vegetable to remove the knife from Billie's body; after doing so, he stabs Rosie with the knife, killing her.
Varla sees Rosie is dead and tries to run down the Vegetable with her car. After striking him, she pins him against a wall with the car. He lifts the front of the car, burying its back tires in the sand. He then collapses beside the car. Varla abandons the car and uses the old man's truck to find Linda and Kirk. While walking through the desert back to the ranch, they see the truck and think the Vegetable is coming to rescue them. As the truck gets closer, Kirk and Linda realize that Varla is driving. They try to escape, but they cannot outrun the truck. Kirk turns to confront Varla. After a violent struggle, Varla appears to win the fight and is about to kill Kirk. Linda gets into the truck and runs over Varla, killing her, leaving Kirk and Linda as the only survivors.
