You know you think about it. What would it be like to have sex with an alien whose morphology is nothing like yours? And what would such aliens do when they were together? But so few works of science fiction examine this basic question. Now a group of artists, writers, and filmmakers have decided to devote a book and DVD to exploring non-humanoid sex in all its bizarre, beautiful and shocking manifestations. It's called Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities. This video is full of snippets from the DVD.
The creators of Strange Attractors are asking for $10,000 to complete the book and DVD, so that more people can join them in imagining sexualities from beyond the stars. Here's what they say about their project on Kickstarter:
A nearly 300 page, full color book and DVD containing art, writing, and film that envisions the sexualities of beings that may some day be encountered - if not in outer space than at least in our dreams! A joint publication by Encyclopedia Destructica and the The Institute of Extraterrestrial Sexuality, this project will publish the work of 69 artists, writers and filmmakers who have created an amazing range of expressions that expand our conception of the possibilities of alien life forms and the nature of sexual desire. Strange Attractors straddles the line between a speculative scientific exploration and a work of artistic imagination and creativity.
While science fiction literature and film have often touched on alien sexuality, these encounters are almost always represented as between a human and a humanoid alien. Gender is almost always portrayed as binary even when it is homosexual. Sexual encounters consist primarily of engagements between two beings. Inspired by Kepler's voyage into deep space on a quest for earth-like planets, this project has gone beyond male and female, beyond queer, beyond any notion of gender, beyond the anthropomorphic to erotic possibilities as vastly varied as the universe itself. Discover what kinds of sentient beings, what types of sexualities, how many erogenous zones and types of erotic pleasure might exist out there in the universe!
We need your help to make this dream a reality!
Hell yes is all I can say to that.
