Ennie, an ambitious yet hedonistic young woman, makes a promise to herself to stop settling for sub-par sex. She makes a plan for all the sexual desires she will fulfil, all the excitement she will seek and find. Travelling throughout Africa for her work, she meets many interesting people, and sets out to satisfy her curiosity. Mind-blowing encounters follow, in an elevator, with a man from work, with a charismatic woman.
Through her exploratory journey, Ennie must concentrate on staying true to her mission, finding the pleasure she wants for herself. She learns about her body, her desires, how she wants to engage with others on many levels. Each lover in the series uncovers something new for her, a different style of emotional and sexual connection.
With its empowering feminist message and attentiveness to pleasure, The Map is a salutary reminder to pursue your dreams, but to stop and enjoy life along the way.
