Synopsis

Four young mod London women named Sadie, Melanie, Busbee, and Samson, who call themselves the Touchables, decide to kidnap a pop singing idol named Christian. During a charity wrestling match featuring Melanie's wrestler boyfriend, Ricki Starr, the women dress as nuns and whisk Christian off to their pleasure dome, a huge plastic bubble located in the English countryside. The next morning, Christian's manager, Kasher, accuses a homosexual black wrestler-gangster, Lillywhite, of abducting the young singer; Lillywhite, who has fallen for Christian, accuses Kasher of hiding Christian. Meanwhile, at the pleasure dome, which is decorated with a round revolving bed, flashing lights, and pinball machines, Christian enjoys sex games with the Touchables. He tires of the amusement and tries to escape in an inflatable boat across a nearby lake, and Sadie sinks the boat with a rifle shot. Then, while getting supplies in London, Melanie is captured by Lillywhite and forced to lead him and his gang to the pleasure dome. Lillywhite takes the Touchables and their captive prisoner, but Samson escapes to London and tells Ricki of the situation. Rounding up a host of other wrestlers, Ricki invades the dome and rescues the girls and Christian. During the melee, the pleasure dome is deflated, but the undaunted Touchables are quick to realize that they can always inflate it again.
