Re: Aliens Shmaliens - ...why not ask THE question??

[color=#8D38C9:post_uid3]*Recently in this folder we've had threads created asking what we think aliens might look like; if we might be able to eat alien lifeforms; what aliens might think of the way we look; what you'd ask an alien, etc.

Here's my question:  What are the chances [b:post_uid3]procreation[/b:post_uid3] between humanoid species of different worlds is possible, ala Mr. Spock of Star Trek?  ???

Will there some day be an Amanda and a Sarek?

Re: Aliens Shmaliens - ...why not ask THE question??

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Chances for procreation? Nil.
Chaces for sex... depends.

Kirk seemed to be interested mianly in the latter.  :laugh:

[color=#000000:post_uid5]I once saw Carl Sagan in a particularly dismissive mood, referring to humans in hollywood movies and T.V. shows mating with aliens.
    He said a human would have a much better chance of mating successfully with a petunia than an alien from outer space!

Re: Aliens Shmaliens - ...why not ask THE question??

[color=#000000:post_uid0]I suppose you could clumsily sue-hank together the "genomes" of two different extra-terrestial species, but you would probably end up with a ugly, confused and very depressed character from a Douglas Adams book.

An "fraternal" relations between aliens will most likely be limited to "I will touch your pleasure parts if you touch mine". That I see nothing wrong with. I actually foresee an entire industry devoted to video-taping this art. I'm pretty sure right now that, if I bothered, I could look up "alien fetish" on google and I would get something already.[/color:post_uid0]

Re: Aliens Shmaliens - ...why not ask THE question??

[color=#000000:post_uid0]What do you know:

Through its profile of Mercury de Sade, a computer programmer obsessed with the erotic potential of alien life, [i:post_uid0]Extraterrestrial Sex Fetish[/i:post_uid0] introduces a new perversion into the lexicon of sexual pathologies: exophilia, an abnormal attraction for beings from worlds beyond earth.

Unlike other fetishes, whose objects may be difficult but not impossible to obtain, exophilia is a sexual desire for something that is literally not to be found on earth. The necrophile can rob a cemetery, the foot fetishist can steal shoes, but where is an alien sex fiend to find the objects of his desire? A basic inability to satisfy his fetish inspires sadism in Mercury de Sade, and though obsessed with extraterrestrials he is thus compelled to victimize a series of "ninfas" or young girls...

But can a human, however alluring, ever compensate for the fantastic sexuality to be expected of extraterrestrials? If aliens are more intelligent than man, then might they — must they — not be more sexually advanced than man too?

Written in a style that ranges from documentary to satire, [i:post_uid0]Extraterrestrial Sex Fetish[/i:post_uid0] draws a portrait of sexual obsession through interrelated series of short texts — pornographic visions, narrative fragments, philosophical speculations, diary excerpts, parables, parodies, syllogisms, snippets of computer code — which may be read either in sequence or in various collage-like patterns.
