A psychotic photographer is on the hunt for a pure woman. To this end he sets up photo sessions at the homes of ladies he meets through a local sex newspaper, but they invariably disrobe, pose in provocative ways, and attempt to seduce him. Each time his fury is aroused and he strangles them, believing that he's doing a good thing by ridding the world of loose women. He becomes fixated on the owner of a local bookstore, a prim, proper woman who he believes might be the one he's looking for. Little does he know that she's a serial killer as well, stabbing local winos to death in back alleys late at night. Since they share a similar distaste for weakness in the opposite sex, when they finally come together the only possible outcome is violence and death for them both.
