Japanese exploitation filmmaker Koyu Ohara's workmanlike pinku eiga film is one of his least interesting films for Nikkatsu, a studio for which he generally did his best work. The plot concerns two novice gigolos, Kenichi (Ryoma Mido) and Akira (Masayoshi Takigawa), who begin training for a male escort agency and start combing Tokyo to find women who want to employ their sexual services. After encountering numerous obstacles, they find a beautiful client (Ryoko Watanabe) and begin to achieve some success in their chosen profession. Watanabe, making her softcore debut, is the most memorable thing about this film, and she went on to give strong performances in films like Hunting for Lust (1983) and the brutal Wives' Rape Mansion (1985). Naoki Fushimi co-stars as the escort agency's demanding president.
