It's human nature David is gay, disabled and looking for love. He can’t eat, drink or shower by himself and has never even been kissed – let alone the rest. As he sets off on a sexual and romantic adventure, armed with a fierce brain and impressive nudes (that he has to get someone else to take), can he manage the thrill and uncertainty of dating after a lifetime of knock-backs?
