Plot[edit]

On a boat ride in New Orleans, Michael, a yuppie working in construction, meets writer and libertine Sarah Asproon. For her publisher, Sarah needs to finish an autobiographical book about her 100 erotic conquests and chooses her chance acquaintance Michael as her last and crowning conquest. However, he is about to get married to Helen.

Michael and Sarah strike an erotic pact for 11 days and 11 nights and live through a number sexual adventures with each other. After a while, Helen becomes suspicious and starts following them.

At the end of the time, Sarah has fallen in love with Michael. When she reveals to Michael her initial scheme of using him for her book, however, he takes her forcefully from behind and leaves her for his future wife.
