She needed someone to vent her pent up emotions.

She needed someone to vent out her pent up emotions.

What sounds better out of the two? Should"to" be included in the sentence? (Vent pent up emotions to)

Vent without out is more idiomatic when the object is a person.

Vent out is used to refer to getting air into an enclosed place such as a room or possibly clothing to clear it of bad air or smells.
