The mechanics of tentacles

This image would be pretty obviously the work of Shirow Masamune (b. 1961) by style even if there weren’t attribution within the image itself. It is reblogged from a 16 January 2014 post at Infernal Wonders, and its origins on the Internet appear to go back to the now-defunct tumblr Random Forever Random, some of which is preserved in the Internet Archive.

Masamune has an official website here.

My original tumblr post was here. This image is the VHS cover of a movie Sex Machine, also known as Love and Energy. The IMDB entry for the movie provides the following plot synopsis:

In the future, the world’s oil supply has finally been exhausted, causing a massive enery crisis. In a search for alternative sources of energy, a scientist invents a machine that can harness the energy expended during sexual intercourse and transfer it into electrical power.
