Ædred Plantagenet teaches for supposedly altruistic reasons at a highschool in a rough industrial town, where, playing their little mindgames with him, his hunky blue-collar students feed his wildly submissive fantasies. His best friend, Cécile Valmont, runs a classy escort service, supplying rich men and women all over the world with the most sophisticated male lovers, but Ædred has always found her boys too well-read courteous and intelligent, and therefore completely effeminate.
At the ripe old age of forty, he obtains his fly-by-night thrills from the dominant trash-talking pilot of his jet or from a variety of hustlers. One day his naïveté about the noble savagery of his students leads him into a life-threatening incident and Cécile decides enough is enough. He needs to settle down with a boy of his own who will provide all of the thrill and none of the danger. And then the games begin.
