Japanese exploitation filmmaker Satoru Kobayashi, a disciple of ero-gro masters Teruo Ishii and Hiroshi Shimizu who had actually been tortured himself by military police in World War II, was the perfect choice for this Nikkatsu studio pinku eiga written by notorious S&M specialist Oniroku Dan. It's a softcore torture tale about a wealthy sadist who captures three girls and lets his friends and business partners have their own brand of cruel fun with them, involving bondage, whipping, and forced enemas. Unlike other Oniroku Dan stories, the plot is almost nonexistent here, merely a framework on which Kobayashi hangs an array of eroticized torture scenes. Regardless of one's view of this sort of film (hundreds of which played mainstream Japanese theaters at the time) it must be acknowledged that Kobayashi is adept at his craft, as well he might be, having directed the very first pinku eiga film (Flesh Market) in 1962. Yui Maisaka stars with Mami Ichinose, Yuichi Minato, Shozo Sakairi.
