Weeks before a presidential election, Senator Harry Douglas, a smooth-talking candidate who has based his entire campaign on the issues of morality and family values is given an unusual opportunity. With his wife, Lois, away for the weekend, he realizes he may be able to break every one of his campaign promises before the election.

The senator's plans devolve into farcical chaos in The Sensuous Senator as he finds himself trapped in his house with his wife, girlfriend, a lady of the evening, two colleagues and a nosy reporter. The show comes from the same author of HLT favorites Sex Please We're Sixty and Sin, Sex and the C.I.A.
