While her husband serves a prison term, Shelly is left alone to support her baby. She launches herself as a prostitute and meets a wide variety of clients. One old man is consoled by the thought that all is for the benefit of the baby crying in the room next door. In the course of her business, Shelly encounters an impotent braggart and a beatnik who laps wine as it is poured over her breast. She provides college students with their first sexual experiences, meets her own lawyer in the course of business, and even encounters a priest. Shelly joins up with a girl friend in order to satisfy customers who enjoy group sex. Willing to satisfy any desire at a price, she discovers the diverse frustrations and needs that motivate her clients.
