Café Flesh is a 1982 post-apocalyptic cult pornographic science fiction film designed and directed by Stephen Sayadian (under the pseudonym "Rinse Dream") and co-written by Sayadian and Jerry Stahl (credited as "Herbert W. Day"). Music was composed and produced by noted music producer Mitchell Froom (and later appeared in his album, Key of Cool).
Two sequels, Cafe Flesh 2 and Cafe Flesh 3, were released in 1997 and 2003, without the participation of the original creators. The sequels were written and directed by Antonio Passolini, and did not have the same degree of popularity and cult appeal as the first film.
Cafe Flesh was the first adult film to successfully crossover as a midnight-movie hit. Throughout the 1980s it played repertory theaters across the USA and Europe.
The Time ... Five Years After the Nuclear War. The Survivors ... Post-Nuke Thrill Freaks Looking for a Kick. Able to exist, to sense ... to feel everything but pleasure. In a world destroyed, survivors break down to those who can and those who can't. 99% are Sex Negatives. Call them erotic casualties. They want to make love, but the mere touch of a person make them violently ill. The rest, the lucky one percent, are Sex Positives, those libidos escaped unscathed. After the Nuclear Kiss, the positives remain to love, to perform and the others, well, we Negatives can only watch, can only come to Café Flesh.
