The Unraveling recounts the adventures that befall three Earthlings when they travel to a culture that has been steeping for thousands of years in a broth of sex, pleasure and connection. Welcome to Erotopia, where the clergy are sex priests and priestesses and their talents are literally miraculous!
The three Earthlings are emissaries traveling to a distant galaxy to make contact with the only other humanoid species in the universe, and they are also entrepreneurs, intent on making a fortune by creating an X-rated reality show that features them having sex with hot extra-terrestrials. But the eronauts have shortcomings. They are toting Earth culture with them and are unskilled at relationship, communication, conflict resolution, and loving well.
These deficits are magnified in the wisdom culture of Erotopia, which is perfectly artful in these areas. This clash of cultures and capacities is the fulcrum on which The Unraveling hinges. Will the Earthlings learn from Erotopia? Or will they infect the culture with their many dysfunctions? A deeply original mash-up of moods and genres, The Unraveling is silly and serious, satirical and visionary, metaphysical and memorably bawdy.
