When Antonio wakes up, he finds that he has landed on a planet where there is no sex. Humans on Life-One are all sex-dysfunctional. At first, it looks like a perfect world -- with no sex, no pornography, no prostitution, no homosexuality, no adultery, no incest, no sexual disease, no rape, no war and no violence. But there is still one thing: nudity. On hot summer days, teenagers walk naked on the streets, for no one there can rape! A challenge to Earth's morality that only one man can survive. And here is his story...
Despite of many nude illustrations which could be mistaken as pornographic to some viewers, this book is not about nudism, but the hatred, discrimination and violence against it.
More than an ordinary entertaining sci-fiction, this book challenges our morals and exposes many conflicts that as humans, we're always confused, and as a society, we're always divided. Which world is better and which morality is more decent: men kill each other on the name of their countries, or men look at naked girls without raping or killing anyone?
A lovestory between two people from two different worlds.
A struggle between two opposite cultures.
A sad story about Earth, ... and its last days.

It was too late. He had died. Misha found the idea frightening. A few minutes ago, he had been alive. She could hear him saying "help." But it was too late. She had never seen anyone die, except in films. She was holding the hand of a dead person, who a few minutes ago, had been alive and asked her for help. She had failed to save him. Misha burst in tears.
When the ambulance came and police helicopters landed around, she was still crying, sitting next to a metal wreckage with a dead person trapped inside. A man whose face she never saw, whose name she never knew, but whose hand she could never forget.
Now the most gorgeous models in Life-One walked out on the stage in their unbelievable dresses. This could never happen on Earth. Misha wore lots of jewellery and a long dress covering only her breasts...
Yet incredibly the people on this planet were admiring, respecting, adoring and loving her for her beauty and the dress she was wearing.
"Professor Einstein, are you serious?"
"Have I ever not been serious?"
"What is your evidence?"
"What if he is a liar?"
"There's only one way to find out ..."
"Let's go and visit Earth."
The Earth's beautiful blue color had gone.
It had been replaced by the white of anthrax clouds. The Earth was like a barren moon. Nuclear explosions happened everywhere, together with thundering earthquakes and erupting volcanoes. Even from this distance, huge cracks could still be seen on its surface, and they were getting bigger. The earth shrunk down a little, and then seemed to expand the next minute. Then it shrunk down again. It was about to explode. The screaming grew even louder.
