“2069: A Sex Odyssey”: Five sexy Venusian Space Girls come down to Earth in search of sperm

By on December 26, 2018

We’d like to invite you behind the beaded curtain into Night Flight’s private back room, where we’ve stashed a few NSFW titles on Night Flight Plus, including a few we’ve collected in our New Cult Arrivals section like 2069: A Sex Odyssey, a campy Bavarian softcore sex romp from 1974 about five sexy female aliens from Venus who’ve come down to planet Earth in search of sperm!

The posters for this erotic sci-fi fantasy comedy — the title is an obvious homage to Stanley Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey, although nothing else connects the two films — featured the tagline: “A spaced out comedy with the most exciting climaxes!”

2069 arrived in American theaters in the early-to-mid Seventies, when a spate of titillating softcore sci-fi-themed films (featuring topless or fully-naked actresses) suddenly sprang to life after the surprising box-office success of Roger Vadim‘s Barbarella (1968).

Most the other softcore films to which 2069 is frequently compared were X-rated parodies — like Flesh Gordon (1974, an erotic spoof of the “Flash Gordon” serials from the 1930s), Sex World (1978, a parody porn of Westworld) and Star Virgin (1979, a Star Wars parody porn) — and like those films, 2069 wasn’t meant to be taken too seriously.

This film — the German title Ach jodel mir noch einen means something like “Oh Yodel Me One More,” and it was also titled Stoßtrupp Venus bläst zum Angriff, which we think means something like “shock troops Venus blows to attack!” — is actually a variant on the popular German genre “Heimatfilme.”

These films typically involved characters from one country vacationing in another — usually in an outdoor setting, like the Tyrolean Alps, Germany’s Black Forest or a European spa — where they search for happiness or love only to learn they can only find happiness/love by returning to their hometown (or homeland).

The plotlines of these films often involved young European men flirting with beautiful blonde Swedish or Danish women.

They’re often seen frolicking naked at outdoor saunas or skinny-dipping in cold lakes, panicking after their clothes have been stolen while the young men hide in the bushes, giggling like naughty schoolboys.

Sometimes an opposite scenario is presented, with young women attempting to seduce foreign-born males.

In 2069: A Sex Odyssey, we’re presented with a sexy science-fiction saga where beautiful alien females from Venus have come down to Earth in their spaceship (“Bumsomat”).

These five Space Girls — “Kommandantin 666” (Nina Frederic), “Galaxia” (Catherina Conti), “Begania” (Heidrun Hankammer), “Eclypse” (Czech actress Alena Penz), and “Solaria” (Gerti Schneider) — have orders to bring back sperm because there aren’t any males left on their own planet, and now their population is in danger of becoming extinct.

They land during the wintertime — 2069 was shot in Upper Bavaria and in Austria’s Rauris Valley ski area, a beautiful Alpine setting — posing as members of the French women’s Olympic ski team.

While here, they find unwary male participants who are then sucked dry of one gallon of baby batter by using a weird suction pump that pretty much works like a vacuum cleaner from outer space.

These sperm-drained men eventually explain to the Venusian space ladies that there’s a better way to extract what they seek.

They then go about seducing the Space Girls, showing them the wonderful world of Earthly heterosexual congress (in various sexual positions, naturally).

Will this science-friction work? Or, will it be emission-impossible? Watch and find out!

2069: A Sex Odyssey‘s director Georg Tressler was born on January 25, 1917, in Vienna, Austria-Hungary.

Tressler — who used many psuedonyms during his long career, including George Tressler, Hans Tressler, Hans Dressler, Hans Sternbeck and Hans Georg Keil, which he borrowed from his maternal grandfather — originally acted, like his father, Hofrat “Otto” Tressler.

In 1938, after graduating high school, Tresller moved to Berlin, where he began playing small parts in German films.

Eventually he was drawn to working behind the camera, making his first short films and 20-40 minute documentary filmstrips.

In 1940, Tressler was drafted by the German army, and sent to Eastern Front, in Poland and the Soviet Union, but he was released after becoming ill with jaundice, returning to Vienna to recuperate.

He began making documentaries again in the early ’50s, some of which were bussed around Germany and shown as part of an educational lecture series to farmers and factory workers.

These films — funded by the Marshall Plan, used to revitalize the productivity of European industries that had collapsed during World War II — earned him the nickname the “German Elia Kazan.”

By the late ’50s, Tressler was focusing on feature films, which led to him to working for Walt Disney, directing The Magnificent Rebel, a melodrama about German classical composer Ludwig van Beethoven.

American audiences saw the film on Disney’s “The Magical World of Disney” TV series, but it was released theatrically in Europe and across Australasia.

Tressler spent much of his career working in German-language television, partly due to his disgust at the way his films were being edited.

He was also upset that there were so many European laws and regulations were placed upon film distribution.

2069SEXODYSSEY2

In 1974, after breaking his arm while on a skiing holiday, he helped out his friend, producer Georgie Reuter, a partnership resulting in 2069: A Sex Odyssey.

Tressler directed nearly eighty movies total, and is probably today best known for Teenage Wolfpack (1956), Endstation Love (1957) and The Death Ship (1959).

Georg Tressler died on January 6, 2007, in Saxony, three weeks shy of his 90th birthday.
