long-term girlfriend Jane Christie won't let him end their
four year relationship, and, being a woman, she
resorts to the sort of low-down tactics against which all men are
powerless: tales of lesbian adventures, wearing no
underwear, and, most dastardly of all, exfoliation in
Susan Walker is in a relationship with Patrick
Maitland - at least he thinks she is... but chances are
she's fantasising about a bronzed antipodean whenever
friend Sally Harper is saving her elasticity for
Mr Right, and Steve's best friend Jeff Murdock is ecstatic if he manages to get
through a conversation with a woman without dribbling on her
or mentioning his (entirely fictional) false leg.
Steve meets Susan in the ladies toilets mid... coupling...
with Jane, it is hardly the most auspicious of romantic
Can Steve and
Susan bridge the Sock Gap and get down to Doing the Squelchy?
Is their relationship strong enough to endure the Lesbian
Spank Inferno? And will the real Giselle please stand up...?
