Carmen Legg is a thirty-something, flame-haired, BMW-driving temptress who has everything she could possibly want - except peace of mind. She can't sit through a business meeting without men ogling her legs; she can't come home after an eternal workday without fending off advances from her oversexed boyfriend. What she needs, Carmen decides, is a man with more meaningful things on his mind. So, like many contemporary single women, she hopes to find her Prince Charming by placing an ad in the personals, describing a wish distinctly her own: Wanted: Clear-thinking male. Attractive, successful 35-year-old woman seeks man for good times, days out, nights in, companionship. Must be intelligent and impotent.
In response to the ad, Carmen meets a colorful array of men, ranging from an outrageously wealthy baron to a motorcycle-riding James Dean look-alike to a divorced father who works with computers. Sharing every step of her adventures with her likely octogenerarian neighbor, Elvira, her best friend Laura, a level-headed therapist named Isabella, and a good-witch who specializes in cures for impotency, Carmen gradually begins to see that abstaining from sex isn't necessarily the clearest path to clear-thinking relationships.
