Giobatta is an Italian seller of chestnut cake; he moves to the Netherlands to make a fortune. One night during a robbery, a thief to steel the money feels his body, and realizes that Giobatta is very "gifted". So the thief doors Giovatta in a night club so that he performs as a porn star.

II segmentEdit

Antonio is a man who has the taboo of sex. When his wife and daughter go on holiday, at the door of the house of Antonio knocks the beautiful Cristina, a Swedish girl, the daughter of a friend of his. Antonio begins to fall in love, and so Cristina falls in love with him too. That night the two have sex, and the day after Cristina, believing that Antonio has a very clear conception of sex, tells him that his wife made love with her father. Antonio, indignant, doesn't... welcome his wife.

III segmentEdit

In Rome, a bishop: Ascanio, is stuck in the elevator of a building with a beautiful woman. The bishop was going to see his mistress, but now he is stuck, and then Ascanio goes having a chat with the woman about sexual matters, expressing all his indignation at the manner in which the Italians of that time approach to sex. The woman manifests sound moral principles; but at the end, when the elevator is unlocked, the contradictions of the two characters are shown.
