Sexual Blood is a wild, cybersexual trip through the dark side of America's media-manipulated consciousness. In Sexual Blood, Amerika tracks the bohemian life of his main character, Mal, an alternative rock musician whose strange encounter with the Medicine Woman causes him to hallucinate a fantasy land populated by all of his former lovers. Mal, hoping to repent for all the emotional damage he's caused in the past, seeks a magic transfusion that will turn him into a compassionate human being: this is when he enters the realm of the Sexual Blood. Charged with a sensual language not seen since Henry Miller, Amerika's alchemical mix of grunge rockers, riot girls, reality hackers, expatriates and guerrilla artists opens up an erotic world lost in a theater of cruelty.
