Sharon (Stacey Walker) is a tease, and the only way she can get her kicks is to play men like suckers. First it's Roy (Michael O'Kelly), who mistakenly goes too far during a hot makeout session in his auto. Sharon screams rape and Roy winds up in prison. Her roommate, Paula (Sharon Carr) can't believe that she's ready to go out with a new man a mere six weeks after being raped, but Sharon sneers, asking "What do you expect me to do, observe a year of mourning?" The new beau is a co-worker, Dick (Tom Hughes), a shy, stuttering mama's boy. Sharon flirts shamelessly with him, even inviting him into the bathroom while she bathes, and when he finally overcomes his nervousness and climbs on top of her, she again erupts with threats and outrage. Dick flees in shame, and is never heard from again. Even Paula is misled by the evil seductress, and her lesbian overtures are cruelly rebuffed ("I may be a bitch, but I'll never be a butch!"). Dick's vacant position is filled by Carter (Neville Coward), who is the next to squire Sharon around town. For a while she is sweet, and Carter accepts the fact that she won't go all the way. Unfortunately, he has been reading pornographic novels as an outlet for his lust, and the intense imagery is causing violent, erotic dreams that obsess him. A crazed outburst of pent-up sexual energy from Carter leads to Sharon meeting the source of her final comeuppance.
