Four directors tell tales of Eros fit for a 1970's Decameron. Working-class lovers, Renzo (Germano Gilioli) and Luciana (Marisa Solinas), marry but must hide it from her employer; plus, they need a room of their own. A billboard of Anita (Anita Ekberg) provocatively selling milk gives a prudish crusader for public decency more than he can handle. The wife of a count whose escapades with call girls make the front page of the papers decides to work to prove her independence, but what is she qualified to do? A buxom carnival-booth manager who owes back taxes offers herself for one night in a lottery: a nerdy sacristan and a jealous cowboy make for a lovers' triangle. In each, women take charge, but not always happily.
