This is the tale of a year in the life of three British teens.  As can be guessed by the title, there is much about sex in this novel.  The boys tell their stories in alternating chapters and they all talk frankly about their sexual fantasies and frustrations.  Dino is pursuing the beautiful Jackie.  Jonathan is dating a chubby girl who he denies liking but has mixed feelings for.  And Ben is involved in an inappropriate relationship with his teacher.
