It all starts with a documentary that Steve (Jack Davenport) watches together with his girlfriend Susan (Sarah Alexander), a documentary that eventually touches the need of men to masturbate - which brings about an embarassing moment which Steve tries to cover up by whistling.

... a few days later, when Susan's parents (Wanda Ventham, James Woolley) come for dinner, the analogy of whistling & masturbating has taken a life all of its own, & soon enough Steve has totally ruined the dinner conversation always confusing the 2 & in the end throws Susan's parents out when her father (referring to whistling) mentions that he might in the evening be "too tired to pucker", which eh (referring to masturbation) hears as "too tired to fuck her".

But when everybody has realized the mistake & wants to make up with each other, Mariella Frostrup, the tv announcer Steve has always had erotic fantasies about, happens to find his mobile phone in her bag on live tv (actually, Steve's crazy ex Jane [Gina Bellman] dropped it in there, but noone knows it yet) - which doesn't really save the situation, since Susan knows about his fantasies ...

Only a few days later, when Susan's mother has examined the gift he gave her - actually a vibrator his friends Patrick (Ben Miles) & Jeff (Richard Coyle) have given him for a completely different reason -, is she reconciled with her daughter's boyfriend.

 

An episode that definitely has its funny moments, but much of the basic conflict - Steve thinks he is discussing masturbtion with his girlfriend's parents - is a little far-fetched, which brings the episode down a bit.
