Well worth a watch but maybe only the one., 24 January 2014
Author: christopher-underwood from United Kingdom

Spirited, likable erotic outing from Nikkatsu. None of the hard edged violence to be seen in almost all the previous releases from Impulse, this even has comedic elements. Plenty of flesh on display and pretty varied too, some 'soaplands' stuff and even some adult baby added to the mix. Supposedly part of the Japanese 'ama' genre, it has to be said that most of the pearl diving going on here is of the sexual variety. Nevertheless just enough local colour, including a giant phallus procession and unusual use (or misuse) of temple facilities. Jasper Sharp mentions in his excellent book, Behind The Pink Curtain and repeats in his fine film notes here, that a more appropriate title translation here would be, Lusty Ama: Loincloth Festival, but we won't come to blows over a snappy title change. Well worth a watch but maybe only the one.
