The trailer for Virtual Sexuality spells it out: Justine wants to lose her cherry, but not to smooth Alex or nerdy Chaz. Most important of all, she refuses to resort to the plunging necklines and rising hems of her pneumatic blonde rival, Hoover. "If only blokes had bar codes," whines Justine. So she knocks up her ideal man on a computer (a blonde, boy-band clone) and he miraculously comes to life.
What lingers depressingly here is the discrepancy between the Saturday- morning-kids'-telly manner and the supposedly adult dilemma this trailer foists on its Boyzone-worshipping audience - how to get laid and keep your pride.
Justine's black soul mate, the comic-book special-effects embellishments, the "poor me" neuroticism - this trailer plays out like a sci-fi Ally McBeal episode produced by the Why Don't You gang.
`Virtual Sexuality' is released 2 July
