Why were men wearing ponytails in the 80s and 90s?
Rena Murakami from "Sex and Zen" parades around in the nude for much of this movie. My version had poor audio and no subtitles so it was hard to follow the story, but I'm guessing that Rena, who commits a murder in self-defence. Somehow this leads to us seeing her household that includes her super old, super horny husband who is bed ridden and needs full time nursing (although with his healthy libido you wonder what could be ailing him), a young man who's got the hots for her, Rena's younger cousin who's got the hots for him, and a few servants who keep getting naked together.
The comic relief provided by the old man and the sexed up servants contrasts with the performances by Rena and the rest who seem to be trying to play it straight. The sex scenes are mostly played for comedic effect although watching Rena's beautiful lithe form writhing on an old man who's bound and screaming for her to release him so that he can fondle her is a bit unsettling - the eroticism of Rena being wiped out by the old man's protestations - leaving me feeling rather un-jovial and only a little turned on despite the beautiful female form before me.
There's a later sex scene between the cousin and the young man that takes place outdoors in the fog. I don't know this actress's name but I actually found her body to be even more appealing that Rena's. Too bad the fog and her co-star got in the way. For those of you who were around in the 80s and 90s you can watch this guy and wonder, why did pony-tails on men ever become popular? Anyways, Rena and the young man eventually become a couple and have a few outdoor sex scenes as well before the grand finale.
