"When love grows diseased, the best thing we can do is to put it to a violent death. I cannot endure the torture of a lingering and consumptive passion."

Most inappropriately, Dorimant is falling in love.
Dorimant, a wealthy man, sex-hungry socialite who's basic 'job' is to get as many of London's upper class women into his bed as he possibly can.
It's a time-consuming business, because it involves hatching complex plots to fend off one woman whilst trying to acquire the amorous affections of another.
Dorimant, encouraged by his wealthy, charmless chums, is conniving to dump his current love one Mrs Loveit in order to seduce her friend, Belinda.
But it's a tough life for an alpha male on the rampage there always seems to be one more woman to have sex with.
And it's not long before Dorimant's eyes fall on one Harriet Woodvill, though she proves to be something more of a challenge…
