Tonight’s the night. You know, the night. The night Stacey and Sam are going to… you know. But when the clothes come off, Stacey flees the scene, leaving her bewildered boyfriend half-dressed behind her. Embarrassed and confused, Stacey struggles to unpick exactly what her problem is with sex. From her unsympathetic boyfriend to her eccentric friends, no one seems to quite grasp Stacey’s dilemma, let alone herself, until she meets Owen. The story of a girl who wants everything and nothing to do with sex all at once, fighting the stigma surrounding what is ultimately just another sexuality.
