Despite its pornographic-sounding title, this violent pinku eiga from the Tokatsu studio and director Seitaro Ogi is actually a softcore thriller, albeit with an approach to its subject matter which would be considered reprehensible anywhere other than Japan, a nation whose exploitation cinema thrives on both violent rape and the fetishization of teenage schoolgirls. This film combines the two in telling the story of a pair of schoolgirls (Arisa Shindo, Ami Takatori) who enter a contest which they dub "the condom game." The object is to have sex with as many different men as possible during the course of a single evening, keeping the used condoms to present as proof. Unfortunately, Shindo's character picks the wrong partner along the way, and he murders her during a bout of violent sex. Continuing a studio tradition which reached its apex (or nadir) with 1983s Revenge for Rape, the film -- though not explicitly graphic -- is certainly for specialized tastes only. Mari Matsumoto co-stars.
