18d Dullness of love and sex in smart surroundings (7) ?p?c?t?

The only word I can fit in there is opacity, which works as a synonym of dullness, but I can’t see how the rest parses. Clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Thank you, I would never have worked that out!

I’ve never come across O = love before, and would not have thought of smart as a synonym of fast/pacy etc.
Love = zero (eg. in tennis)
