During the summer, every sexually active mare in Equestria falls victim to what is known as the "Summer Heat;" three consecutive days during the summer months when a mare's pleasure receptors become overly sensitive and she give's off a heavy dose of pheromones that attract stallions. Nopony fully understands what causes this phenmoenon (not even Princesses Celestia or Luna), but what is known is that Each pony comes down with it at different times, and that unlike a normal heat during a mare's cycle, the summer heat does not normally result in pregnancy (unless of course the two just happen to come at the same time...but that is not the case in this matter). Also, when left "untreated," the summer heat can be one of the most uncomfortable experiences a mare can endure. Still, it's nothing that a good rutting won't cure, right? Unfortunately for Fluttershy, her fiance, Soarin', is away performing with the Wonderbolts for the weekend, and unbeknownst to him, poor Fluttershy has been left alone to fend off her first bout of the summer heat on her own.
