Only natural. what is less natural is that instead of taking things easy and following the advice of his doctor -- who also happens to be his wife -- our professor gets hopelessly hooked on Odile's smile. Odile ? Odile. A ball of fire. Twenty-five years old and a knockout. Tennis teacher and fantasy queen. What does Odile "get off" on ? One. The swings at the local carnival.
