Raw, provocative, and blunt and very erotic Japan film that entertains!
26 July 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I have just recently started to explore the Japan cinema and what a way to start by viewing this one little erotic film titled "Debauchery" it's clearly Japan porn as most would see it! Most people who don't watch underground film will probably never view or find this picture still it's a classic from an old Japan studio Impulse pictures, in fact this film comes from a Japan series known as The Nikkatsu Erotic Films. And after viewing you as a fan of erotic cinema will be happy.

Made in 1983 this erotic Japan pleasure called "Debauchery" stars the sexy Ryoko Watanabe as a married lady named Ami and she's a little bored however things change when she goes into Tokyo and joins a secret society club and she begins to experiment. And you name it Ami does everything from selling her body and soul by playing discrete sex games when she pleasures anonymous men. Many of her clients do sick acts in the form of bondage, whips, and being tied up along with a mouth gag. This new life has an impact.

This film would not be for everyone to see still it's a good introduction into the Japan cinema and it's a real raw pleasure treat for anyone who enjoys erotic film as it is indeed an art of style and pleasure.
