Romina is a carefree, attractive woman whose life changes from one moment to the next through mysterious forces into an increasingly surprising series of sexual encounters. However, beyond the labels —voyeurism, exhibitionism, domination, fetishism— perhaps it is only a path to a deeper level of self-discovery, whose first stage is simply: the body. Among her many pleasures, sex is the one that provokes the widest range of reactions, from blushing to boasting. The author presents her protagonist not as the object, but the subject of desire, though even she is not without her hesitations and fears.
