Mostly human and /or humanoid but somewhat interesting nonetheless.  Especially the interview with Samuel R. Delaney.

Most of the aliens on the original Star Trek Series (three seasons from 1966-1969) were humanoid and/or rather ridiculous looking.  However a few were quite interesting, strange and provocative.  Here’s a brief summary with images from Fortean Times:

Mass Effect Video Game Sex Scene

This is a human/alien lesbian sex scene from a video game.  The alien is completely humanoid.  What makes her alien seems to be blue skin!  Big deal!  That is so Original Star Trek (remember the green alien lady that Kirk has the hots for?)  Why in almost all media including fiction are eroticized aliens almost always humanoid unless they are some sort of monster?

Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno

Green Porno!

The critically acclaimed series from Isabella Rossellini of very short films about the reproductive habits of insects and marine animals. GREEN PORNO is scientifically accurate yet extremely entertaining. Produced by Isabella Rossellini, Jody Shapiro and Rick Gilbert.

While not dealing with extraterrestrial sexuality for reproduction or pleasure, these short films certainly capture the spirit of serious playfulness combined with science that the Institute of Extraterrestrial is all about.  They are simply marvelous!
