Plot: How did America view sex in the 1950s? The filmmakers try to answer that question by looking at a wealth of archival material, as well as by interviewing a variety of actors, performance artists, and beat writers. While the stars comment on the images that shaped their first sexual encounters, the film cuts together clips from steamy teenage angst films, riotous sex-ed films and other material from the period.
