In this fantasy, a sailor finds himself shipwrecked on an island containing only beautiful women. At first he believes he has truly found paradise especially after they hold a gay feast in his honor. But when they suddenly take him prisoner and then leave him in the sun to die, he realizes that things are not what they seem. He learns that the women hate all men after a crew of pirates raped them and destroyed the underwater temple of their sea god. He is later rescued by a young woman slated to be sacrificed to the women's god. He and she fall in love, and on the day of the sacrifice, they locate the temple and three treasure chests. While training to obtain it, the woman is eaten by a giant clam. In the end, the man is rescued by a passing schooner.
