What is 'love'? How does it differ from lust? Why are people unfaithful? What causes promiscuity? Do men and women speak the same language?Set against a backdrop of two marriages, the protagonist is Eve, a chaste young woman with definite views on fidelity and love. Her husband is Adam, a philanderer who many will see as a typical man. What follows is an oft-amusing and saucy narration of extra-marital affairs by the parties involved and those close to them, and which provides a social commentary of the man-woman relationship and the psychology behind some common causes and consequences of infidelity and promiscuity. A question raised is if established precepts of morality with a base of religious dogma have created much gender rivalry and many common social ills.
