A rather sexy sci-fi tale, and a hilarious romp!

Where did it come from?

Conceived in the turgid mind-depths of a milquetoast inventor who wanted to make girls (double entendre intentional)

Born by virtue of a hero's twisted desire to make money

Nurtured and reared in the loving care of an advertising industry which, as everyone knows, has only the best interests of mankind at heart

The Climacticon burst full-blown on a stunned but happy public which rapidly became clamorously enthusiastic:

Men welcomed it as the best thing since Adam discovered Eve. Women denounced it as an outrageous invasion of privacy, a threat to planned parenthood, and a boon to "unsuccessful sex fiends" (apparently an astonishing 94% of the population!).

The census bureau demanded quadrupled appropriations. National income plummeted, due to the demise of certain highly profitable enterprises. And, most important of all, the government formed a committee.

And all Hell broke loose!
