Doctor Taylor, his wife Elizabeth and their teenage daughter Lana go to an isolated hospital in the Brazilean jungle, close to the Amazon river; they are attacked by savages and he sees them kill and eat his wife, and abduct the girl. Taylor manages to get back to civilization, but he needs psychiatric help; only Doctor Ana believes his story about cannibals, and takes the risk of going with him and a few rich people who can pay for a safari in the remote jungle. The cannibals decimate a number of the safari members in a succession of attacks, and only Taylor, the sexy lady doctor, and a photograph, rich the cannibal tribe - only to discover that she is now the wife of the tribe leader, and considered a goddess. The tribe has adopted her as a white goddess.

The version titled "Mondo Cannibale 3" was signed by Jesus Franco as Clifford Brown, supposedly an homage to the real Clifford Brown, a jazz trumpeter.
The film was shot shortly after Terreur cannibale (1981), and used many of the same sets.
In a DVD interview for 'Sexo Canibal', Jess Franco says that he hated the cannibal genre, and after his two cannibal films, he would never shoot another, as it was just a popular phase of cinema with the directors Umberto Lenzi and Ruggero Deodato.
