My Awkward Sexual Adventure is the story of an uptight accountant, Jordan Abrams, who proposes marriage to his life-long soul mate Rachel, only to be told the painful truth: he’s terrible in bed. Frustrated and deeply unsatisfied, Rachel dumps him, and Jordan embarks on a desperate mission to seek some much-needed sexual experience and acquire some basic requisite skills. Committed to doing whatever it takes to win Rachel back, Jordan enlists the guidance of Julia – a sexually liberated but emotionally guarded exotic dancer – who leads him into an unfamiliar world of strip clubs, sensual massage parlors, cross-dressing and S & M. Vik plays Dandak, something of a Lothario, who Jordan initially goes to for advice.
