Hazel Delany walks out on her husband on the eve of her daughter's wedding. Hazel is upset at nightclub owner husband Peter because of his string of affairs. Peter is annoyed at his wife's lack of interest in sex and exasperated that his mother is getting more than he is. They eventually go to see a sex therapist to overcome their difficulties. Peter is hiding a secret about one of his ex-mistresses and Hazel has a sexual awakening in the arms of a younger man.
Peter's son Simon has left a long term relationship. His mother pushes him to reconcile and marry his girlfriend after she admits to Hazel that she is pregnant. He is reluctant as he has fallen for one of his father's nightclub hostesses.
Highly sexed Alona Cunningham works as a sex therapist yet finds her boyfriend Paul reticent in the bedroom.
