Melissa Quigley
Leslie Manville

Melissa Quigley is dissatisfied with her married life. As she tells her psychiatrist, her mother-in-law hates her, and her husband gives off excessive body heat ... especially after a bath.

To add some excitement to her life, she decides to have an affair, unfortunately, with the randy Dave Drysdale. However, deciding to have an affair is a bit different from actually carrying through, and in practice, her guilt and nervousness make her sick everytime she ends up in a hotel room with Dave. In many ways, her sex life with Dave is a lot like her sex life with husband Clive.
