A video documenting The international Erotic Science Fiction Museum in Toba, Japan with additional footage from The Grand Old International Adult Museum in Ise, Japan. Featuring a narrative or sorts around a space age experimental breeding program, artificial insemination and the future of the human species.

Constructed in the late 60’s, The International Erotic Science Fiction Museum, ever popular with young unsuspecting honeymooners is inspired by 2001 A Space Oddity set against the backdrop of Japanese B grade sci-fi.  The museum presents a perverse and monstrous scenario of a team of ‘sexual co-workers’  implementing an assortment of bizarre technology in the gestation of a new race of humans.
