One thing every college student knows and jokes about is how awful the housing market is. This cut-throat business is expertly highlighted in the 2019 short adult film PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSOR ENJOYS TIME WITH REAL ESTATE AGENT.

Professor Sheen (played by a man known as just “CHUCK”) is our titular character; almost the entirety of the film is experienced through his eyes. We begin with Sheen knocking on an old wooden door of a show home. He’s recently become single and is in the market for a home. The door swings open and we see our supporting actress, Kensie Madison, who plays the character of Kensie Madison.

Sheen has no idea who he’s looking at; he’s just here to look at the property. However, Kensie is immediately shocked as she already knows who Professor Sheen is: her former professor. This was the first sign that I felt foreshadowed Kensies’ ulterior motives. She helps him remember who she is, even laughing at his stupid jokes once he realizes she was a former student of his. Shortly, she invites him inside to have a look at the home.

As we move into the second act, Kensie begins showing Professor Sheen a living room. She talks about how well the sectional would fit a family and she begins to ask about his. As professor Sheen reveals to her that “Mrs. Sheen ” is no longer in the picture, Kensie feigns interest and nods with what could be described as a knowing smirk.

“I’m sorry about that but… it’s good to know,” she says. A second sign?

She quickly brings him to what I’m sure she believes will be his favourite room in the house. Upstairs is a large room complete with a large sectional couch, full computer station and even a pool table. The room is described as the previous owners’ “man cave,” although Sheen doesn’t seem too interested as the stairs have thoroughly winded him and he asks to sit down. This was when he asked why she went into real estate when she was so good at psychology. She dismissed it, adamantly stating “I hate psychology. I have no interest in it. It’s not even what I was majoring in.”

She goes on to say that she only took the class to impress Professor Sheen. And this is when it all came into place for me. She said she liked his cardigan with the elbow pads and that was it. I knew.

Why real estate? Why go from psychology to real estate? Two professions with seemingly no relevance.

It got me thinking. Real Estate is a competitive business and sometimes, extreme measures must be taken to ensure the sale is completed. Real estate agents are just another form of salespeople, who commonly use subtle tricks to entice others to buy what they’re selling. One of the first and easiest tricks is to establish a personal or emotional connection with the person. Maybe you have the same surname or maybe they love the same weird little fashion item as you, like cardigans with elbow pads. Luckily for Kensie, she already knew the Professor.

It all made sense. She was using his own psychology against him! Real estate is just using subtle tricks to manipulate someone into getting what you want: the sale. Kensie was using manipulation abilities learned through Professor Sheen to get him to buy the house.

Why would she laugh at his stupid jokes? Why would she act sad when Sheen reveals his divorce when she’s attempting to hide a smirk? Why would anyone, ever, compliment a cardigan with elbow pads? Simple. To break down this man’s defensive walls.

But why would Sheen, a professor of psychology, not be able to see what was unfolding in front of his, and to an extent, our eyes? If any other person were to have tried anything like this on him I’m sure he would have seen right through the rouse, but luckily for Kensie she already knows the professor. She had an in.

It was at this point she made an advance on Sheen unlike anything yet seen in the film thus far. He quickly shut down the advance, he’s her teacher, this isn’t right. But with an excuse that was just paper thin enough to work, Kensie pulled her final dick trick.

“I’m not a student anymore, obviously. I’m a real estate agent.”

PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSOR ENJOYS TIME WITH REAL ESTATE AGENT on its surface appears to just be a simple tale of a man attempting to buy a house and getting into a little more than he bargained for.

In reality it’s a deeply psychological piece that touches on themes of loss, relationships, emotion and manipulation. The first person delivery leaves the viewer trapped behind the eyes of Sheen as he falls deeper into the sale. I give PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSOR ENJOYS TIME WITH REAL ESTATE AGENT four fake compliments out of five.
