“My own suspicion is that the universe is not only quee rer than we suppose\, but queerer than we can suppose.”
J. B. S. Haldane\, Evolutionary Biologist

According to recent scientif ic reports\, there may be between 8 billion and 13 billion life bearing pla nets in our galaxy alone. With numbers like that we will certainly encounte r living beings from outer space someday. When we do\, what will they look like? What special parts will they have\, and how will they “do it?” Will w e find what they do sexy\, incomprehensible or just plain gross? You can fi nd the answers to these questions and more in Strange Attractors: Investiga tions in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities\, an extraordinary 288 p age\, full color\, book and 120 minute DVD encompassing art\, writing and f ilm.

Inspired by Keple r’s quest for earth-like planets\, Strange Attractors envisions the sexuali ties of beings that may some day be encountered - if not in outer space tha n at least in our dreams! A joint publication by Encyclopedia Destructica a nd The Institute of Extraterrestrial Sexuality\, Strange Attractors present s the work of 70 artists\, writers and filmmakers who have created an amazi ng range of expressions expanding our conception of the possibilities of al ien life forms and the nature of sexual desire.
