Ruth loves her husband, but she keeps secrets from him. When a notoriously lesbian neighbour returns home to Toronto from Art School in Montreal, Ruth finds herself unmistakeably attracted. Agnes is quirky, creative, and significantly younger. After twenty-five years married to a man, can Ruth find a place in her life for ambiguous, artsy Agnes? Or will the younger woman’s demons devour them both?
Melissa is surprised when her boyfriend wants to watch her perform oral sex on other men. Naomi’s boyfriend asks her to have a threesome with one of his friends. Bec moves back to her family farm in rural Australia, and is lonely and horny too, while Michelle moves to the suburbs, a long way from everyone she knows, and feels the same. Anna masturbates out of loneliness and boredom, and gets unexpectedly caught, and Nina flirts with her masseur and doesn’t. Sophie and Josh are the couple who still whisper together and kiss in public long after everyone else they know has stopped, until they meet another couple who are the same.
