Plot

NATO officer Andrea Rossi-Colombotti is a ladies' man with an unusual libido: he can only seduce women in situations in which his life is in danger. He breaks into a Corsican girlfriend's house, and the girl, armed and voluptuous, believes Andrea to be a criminal and nearly shoots him before being seduced, but she later ends their relationship. Later, while spending an afternoon with an Asian air stewardess, Andrea tries to achieve arousal by concocting a story about a dying relative, but the stewardess learns the sham and the liaison ends disastrously.

Frustrated with his condition, Andrea visits a psychiatrist. He discloses that his problem began in adulthood, but that he has flirted with woman and suffered from the consequences throughout his life. The psychiatrist recommends that Andrea try to seek spiritual qualities in women rather than focusing on their physical attributes, and to attempt to connect with them emotionally.

Andrea visits Switzerland, where he meets an Alpine girl. Following the doctor's advice, he does not seduce her but instead charms her and takes her out on romantic dates. Andrea, attracted by the girl's sweetness, proposes marriage. The night before the wedding, Andrea takes his girlfriend to a circus, where a beautiful female lion tamer challenges anyone to kiss her amidst a group of lions. Andrea cannot refuse such an offer and passionately kisses the lion tamer, bringing an end to his romance with the Alpine girl.

Andrea next becomes involved with an American woman, the wife of a major who happens to be his superior. The passionate but potentially dangerous affair ends quickly, and Andrea is posted to Sicily, where he encounters a Sicilian girl from a fierce-tempered honorable family. The girl's family accuses her of impurity, and Andrea poses as a doctor in order to check on her but takes advantage of the dangerous opportunity to seduce her. The family catches him in the act and chase after him, and, with much difficulty, he escapes.

Andrea now takes the only alternative he knows: he returns to his Italian hometown and to Gigliola, his first sweetheart, who still resides there. He had left Gigliola when he joined the army, leaving her heartbroken, but she still loves him, and he hopes that her love will aid him in overcoming his problem. When she hears about Andrea's condition and his attempts to cure it, she pledges to give herself to him if doing so will cause him to cease seducing other women. However, Andrea cannot bear to seduce a woman whom he truly loves and instead spends the night with a woman who is reputed to bring ill fortune to her men.

Andrea's next lover is a countess whose much older husband is believed to be deaf. She lures Andrea into a plot to murder her husband: they will seat him under a heavy and delicately balanced stone ball atop a wall, and at the slightest shock, the ball will fall on top of him. Aroused by such a dangerous venture, Andrea consents but does not actually intend to bring the plan to fruition. However, the count is not really deaf, and having heard the plan, he tries to turn it upon Andrea: he adjusts the ball to become even more unsteady, and convinces Andrea to take his seat. But the seat breaks under Andrea's weight and while the count sets up a new one, Andrea accidentally slams a door and causes the ball to fall on the count.

Andrea is put on trial for his supposed crime, which attracts wide publicity and interest. Many of his former lovers appear in court to speak about him, but only Gigliola believes in his innocence and attempts to defend him. The psychiatrist whom Andrea had consulted is called upon, but while testifying, he breaks down. All Andrea can offer the court is a heartfelt apology for his condition and the trouble that it has caused. At the last moment, news arrives that wins Andrea's acquittal: an autopsy has revealed that the count had sound hearing and should have been able to prevent his demise, and as such the death is considered an accident.

Andrea and Gigliola are later shown to be happily married and residing in a high-rise apartment in Milan, though Andrea has not been cured of his condition.
