Toby was bullied at public school. Having no sisters or friends, he had very little experience of girls. His penis failed to develop during adolescence and he has a micropenis. When he grew up, he became socially phobic and afraid of women. At the age of 35, he decided to lose his virginity with a sex worker. She spent time with him, telling him how nice looking he was and boosting his confidence. She encouraged him to go speed dating, where he met his current wife.
