    • Synopsis
    • Frankie (Justin Cheung) is brought up in a strict middle class family. His mother is a Discipline Officer at a girls’ college, while his father is an observant Public Servant. Frankie lives a disciplined life, somewhat monotonous and boring.
      Frankie, like any other adolescence, is curious about sex during puberty; most parents avoid talking about the issue, especially in a family as observant as his. So Frankie turns to his “sex mentor” – porn magazines and his only friend Jing (Gregory Wong) from high school.
      To Frankie, Jing is like a life mentor, who always provides him with timely encouragement and support. With the help of Jing, Frankie has the opportunity of camping with his crush Zoey (Mo Qi Wen), and spending time alone with her, during which he loses his virginity to her… not quite! He turns out to be doing the well-known ugly she-boy from school!
      The episode devastates Frankie, and he decides to leave Hong Kong for the U.K. to continue his study. Frankie hopes to have a fresh start, but after absurdly breaking up with his first girlfriend Margaret (Angelina Zhang), he has no luck with girls abroad. His acquaintance with lecherous senior James (Mark Wu) is his only gain.
      Time flies by, Frankie works in Hong Kong after graduation, and is in a rapport and stable relationship with Zeta (Celia Kwok). Their only problem, a big problem, is their sex life. Zeta is sexually anxious and sets certain restrictions, not only does it forbid Frankie from being sexually satisfied, it also indirectly leads to their breakup.
      Depressed as he is, Frankie heads north to the Mainland with Jing to pick up chicks in nightclubs, where he falls for Fish (Jeana Ho). Frankie finds her downing her sorrow over her recent breakup; Fish takes the initiative to invite Frankie over to her place, and further proposes the possibility of a relationship. With such beauty before him, the normally calm Frankie struggles even knowing that she is only looking for a sugar daddy.
      The moment Frankie resolves to accept, he finds her boobs unreal and leaves in shock. He can bear fake brands and fake food, but he cannot take fake boobs!!
      Frankie returns home in disappointment, only to find another great shock awaits – his seemingly ethical father turns out to be a licentious man slut. The morals and values he lives by for years are shattered in one night. He desperately needs a way to vent his anguish, so when Jing invites him to the Mainland for prostitution, he happily accepts.
      As a newbie, Frankie is clueless to sauna-brothel; every detail is full of surprise and excitement. He is spellbound when he sets his eyes on Celia (Daniella Wang). Celia gives him pleasures he never experiences before; to Frankie, this is the “perfect sex” physically. Frankie finally understands why men love prostitution, as girlfriends will never satisfy them the way prostitutes do.
      Frankie knows his passion for Celia is based on physical attraction, whereas for Zeta it is spiritual; he cannot help but struggles between love and lust. What will be Frankie’s final decision?
