[ Story ]

In today's era of sexual license and X-rated sprees, youngsters are troubled with the hunger for the flesh that has been nurtured in them. Kenji (Yoshiro Uchida), Masaki and Wataru in Yomei High School form a group to tackle this problem vowing to abandon their virginity within a month, before the cultural festival day at the school. They try to pick up women in Shinjuku, but the girls are not easily tempted and do not give their hearts to the boys. Kenji makes a pass at Kyoko (Keiko Sekine), a talented classmate and takes advantage of the intimacy existing between their respective parents. She is certainly good enough for him as a sweetheart, but is a tough customer to deal with.
One night the three go to a cabaret as they think professional women will be easier, but their attempt ends in failure when Sanae, a classmate appears as a hostess, working during the night hours to support her sick mother. They have a bitter experience in being charged extravagant prices. Sanae helps them out and Wataru falls in love with her. Both are happy although Wataru has failed to keep his pledge.
On the eve of the Cultural Festival, Kyoko and Kenji are left alone in a room after all the decorations are put up. Kyoko strips and tells Kenji to make love to be loyal to his pledge for she does not want him to have an affair with anyone else. In spite of himself, Kenji runs up to her, but overcomes his animal desire, struck by her beautiful virgin body.
