The titular "man bait" is svelte shopgirl Madge Dreyer (Marie Prevost), who can't convince her customers and male co-workers to keep their hands to themselves. When she rebuffs the advances of her boss, Madge is fired, whereupon she finds work at a dime-a-dance joint. Here she meets and falls in love with young Jeff Sanford (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.), who -- surprise! -- turns out to be the son of Madge's ex-boss. Though the rest of Jeff's family disapproves of his choice in women, his brother Gerald (Kenneth Thomson) is delighted -- he'd like to spend some quality time with Madge himself. In a wholly expected development, Madge ends up with Gerald, while Jeff dutifully returns to his society fiancee.
