A wife charges her husband with sexual battery. He escapes from the police and goes into hiding.

There he disciplines her vehemently, subjecting her to increasingly shocking forms of sexual torture, tetherings, suspensions and humiliations. Astonishingly, through the rage and lust, the pair develop a relationship that pushes the boundaries of lurid passions and perverse obsessions Written by Leo Urbina

Another Nikkatsu winner along the same plotlines as CAPTURED FOR SEX 2, though not quite as extreme, but more "arty".

A man kidnaps his ex-wife (the gorgeous Naomi Tani) and subjects her to various forms of humiliation and abuse. She finally stops resisting and embraces her submission.

A couple whose attempt at suicide fails are also thrown into the mix.

Films like this create a vision of hell for some, a vision of heaven for others. This is highly erotic and simple in its execution, but complex for its sexual politics.

Not great drama, but the sexual anarchy on screen is strangely beautiful and the film's general tone is deliciously subversive.
