Form over substance sex video that forgot to make the sex interesting, 18 September 2006
Author: dbborroughs from Glen Cove, New York

Japanese sci-fi porn about sex robots going out and collecting sexual data by having sex. There really isn't a plot (There's an idea but it doesn't amount to much of anything),just flashy visuals and erotic imagery.

As a collection of images its great but there is little beyond it. Its a variety of couplings with text over them explaining the company that makes the robots and what the background for it all is. A chunk of it is pixelated and a few shots are graphic, but after about ten minutes, when you realize its not going anywhere, it begins to fall down. While I like the idea of the flashy visuals mixing with sex and a semi clever idea, I hate that it just doesn't go anywhere (and does so really fast).

Better to rent an Japanese porn video.
