There was an excellent article on Oprah.com on women and porn. "... the fact is, millions of women use and enjoy 'explicit sexual imagery.'" Japanese Pinku films are soft-core porn. They have a wide range of what is shown, and this film would be considered to be at the low end of the scale on the porn aspect.
That is not to say that it is not an enjoyable film. It is amazing how much porn they fit in in 64 minutes and still managed to tell a good story. It's the kind of porn that I would imagine would be attractive to women who might not otherwise look at porn. According to the article above that is a decreasing number as 56% of Hustler's on-line sales are to women.
Shoko (Konatsu) is having doubts about getting married and decides to do some exploration with Kudo the chef (Hitoshi Ishikawa). She dumps her fiancé (Takuya Fukushima), the chef dumps her, her fiancé ends up with her best friend (Minami Aiyama). the chef uses his wife (Yumika Hayashi) like a piece of meat, she won't quit the chef, and, then family secrets are revealed.
Not a lot of depth, but a view of six lives in modern Japan.
