Ralph, the young, scholarly Earl of Chartleigh permits his mother to arrange a marriage to Georgiana, the even younger daughter of her friend. Both are virgins on their wedding night and during the awkward attempts in the bedroom, Ralph is humiliated. Their marriage goes unconsummated much to Georgie's annoyance.
Ralph decides he should get some sexual experience with an opera dancer so he can finally consummate the marriage with his wife, whom he is falling in love with. Georgie has plans of her own and enlists the aid of Ralph's cousin, Roger, a notorious rake. Roger thinks the plan is absurd but helps her anyways.
Roger, meanwhile, has his eye on Georgie's bluestocking sister, Vera, who wants nothing to do with a womanizer. When Georgie's plan hits a snag, it threatens both Georgie and Ralph's marriage as well as Roger's courtship of Vera.
