Virgin Territory, by David Leland, 2007.

Raunchy teen comedy meets the Black Plague in David Leland's take on literary classic The Decameron. Hayden Christensen stars as 14th-century lothario Lorenzo, who falls for the beautiful Pampinea (Mischa Barton) as they escape to the Italian countryside. But Lorenzo's got competition from the evil Gerbino (Tim Roth) and the obsessed Count Dzerzhinsky (Matthew Rhys), both of whom want to claim the chaste maiden as their own.
