Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman looking for the man of her dreams turns to a computer with unexpected results in the British comedy Virtual Sexuality. Justine (Laura Fraser) is 17 year old and a virgin, a situation she's none too happy about. She has her eye on Alex (Kieran O'Brien), one of her classmates, and has been plotting a seduction following the advice of her friends Fran (Marcelle Duprey) and Chas (Luke de Lacey). However, when Alex breaks their date to go out with Hoover (Natasha Bell), Justine is crushed; to take her mind off this turn of events, she goes to a computer show with Chas. Justine notices a virtual-reality makeover machine on display, and after toying with her own image for a while uses the computer to design her ideal man. Something goes wrong with the hall's power supply, and the computer explodes. The dust settles to reveal Jake (Rupert Penry-Jones), who looks like the man Justine was designing -- except he's wearing her clothes and thinks he's her. Justine eventually returns and is introduced to Jake; she finds she likes him quite a bit, not realizing he's merely a manifestation of her own personality. However, Jake also has also attracted the attention of her nemesis Hoover. Virtual Sexuality was based on a novel by British author Chloe Rayban.
