The Autobiography Of A Flea (1976) - Sharon McNight

Set in the 1800's, a tiny flea narrates the sex escapades it sees from afar whom is Belle, a 14-year-old girl who lives with her controlling uncle. Father Ambrose is a young unscrupulous priest from her local parish whom decides to take advantage of Belle's naiveness to seduce her and teams up with Belle's uncle to exploit Belle's newly aroused sexuality. Meanwhile, Belle's best friend Julie has problems with her own life when her parents ignore her for their own sexual encounters, and she is pursued by the very endowned Father Clement, one of Father Ambrose's associates, who also wants to satisfy his carnal urges.

Passions of a Private Secretary (2008) - Yutaka Ohgi

A young woman who is engaged to the son the CEO of the company that she works for has her life turn upside down when a former co-worker of hers who had been harboring his true feelings for her introduces her to a world where pleasure and pain go hand in hand.

Passions of a Private Secretary was co-written and directed by Yutaka Ohgi (Secrets of a Desperate Housewife). The screenplay for Passions of a Private Secretary is loosely based on the writings of Japanese erotica novelist / writer Oniroku Dan who’s most famous novel Flower and Snake (Hana To Hebi) has seen several cinematic incarnations over the years.

Tenshi no harawata 4: Akai inga AKA Angel Guts: Red Porno (1981) - Toshiharu Ikeda

RED PORNO is a sexy and sleazy entry in Nikkatsu's "classic" ANGEL GUTS roman-porn series. This one amps up the sexiness quite a bit over some of the previous entries (which is NEVER a bad thing...) and the storyline, though threadbare, keeps your interest - especially considering the swift 65-minute or so run-time...

A strange and reclusive neighbor becomes obsessed with Nami after seeing her spread in a porn rag entitled (aptly enough...) Red Porno. Meanwhile, a serial-panty-stealer is on the loose in the neighborhood. Is it the same weirdo? - that is the question. The rest of the film is pretty much filler to show tons of near-graphic masturbation and sex scenes...

Enjo-kôsai monogatari: shitagaru onna-tachi aka Frog Song (2005) - Shinji Imaoka


Frog Song is a truly innovative example of Pink cinema; a new and exciting movement within Japanese underground filmmaking that mixes erotic content with art film aesthetics to create an unmistakably unique and modern mode of filmmaking. A bizarre film, Frog Song follows Akemi, a young woman who runs off into the night after discovering that her husband has been cheating on her. She ends up in a local comic shop where she meets an aspiring comic-book artist, Kyoko, who supports herself by working as a prostitute. Unable to deal with her husband s betrayal, Akemi moves in with Kyoko where they develop a taste for sex, singing and frogs! With its insane narrative that somehow manages to incorporate frogs into an otherwise realistic story of love and friendship, Frog Song is a wonderful example of Pink Cinema from the director of Despite All That, the best selling title on the Sacrament label in Europe.

Broadcast Girl (2009) - ?

She was then blackmailed by someone but her career changed dramatically after that… 2 years later, Aya replayed Yuko Fujisaki’s position as the main anchor.

Sev Beni (1979) - Yücel Uçanoğlu

Turkish Erotic Comedy

Matou a Familia e Foi ao Cinema aka Killed the Family and Went to the Movies (1991) - Neville de Almeida

From IMDB:

In Rio de Janeiro, after an altercation with his father and mother, the young man Bebeto kills his family and goes to the movie theater. He impassively watches four weird short stories. The first one is about a wealthy woman, Márcia, bored with her marriage, who decides to spend alone a couple of days in her house in Petrópolis. When her best friend Renata unexpectedly arrives to stay with her, they get drunk and a tragedy is announced. The second one is about a looser that arrives home upset and drunk and kills his family. The third one is about a tragic lesbian repressed relationship. The last one is about a man addicted in stealing women's underwear.

Aluga-se Moças (1982) - Deni Cavalcanti

Unintentionally, the film also won fame for a reason parallel: the primary error of agreement of the title (the correct is “for rent”), including being the subject of college entrance examination in question. The huge success of the film spawned a sequel: for rent two girls in 1983 without the participation of Gretchen and explicit sex scenes grafted.

Lady Libertine (1983) - Gérard Kikoïne

A young woman in Victorian England disguises herself as a boy and runs away to become the ward of a wealthy aristocrat. When he finally discovers her real identity, she becomes his mistress and eventual bride.
Starring: Jennifer Inch, Sophie Favier, April Hyde, Alain DuMaurier, Emanuel Karsen
Directed by: Gerard Kikoine

Il Decameron (1971) - Pier Paolo Pasolini

Pasolini's 'Decameron' at the Film Festival

Pier Paolo Pasolini, the Italian director, has always been something of a puzzle for American critics, not simply because we have to reconcile his announced Marxism with what appears to be a kind of reformed Christianity (as reflected by the neo-realistic "The Gospel According to St. Matthew," as well as by the austerely allegorical "Teorema"), but because he forces us to keep shifting critical gears. No three Pasolinis are ever quite alike. At best, they come in pairs, like "Oedipus Rex" and "Medea," neither of which have yet been released here.

Impudicizia (1991) - Pasquale Fanetti

Florence is the unsatisfied wife of a museum director. In his efforts are worthless outside of seduction order (one day before the strips in the middle of antiquities).

To resolve the problem will take care of the maid that will convince the lady to grant her attentions to other men.

Taras de Colegiais (1984) - Juan Bajon

Herança dos Devassos (1979) - Alfredo Sternheim

Shu Kei: Viva! Island Girl (1996) - Chang Ling Yok

Taiwan-born Shu Kei captivated audiences by storm with her naïve-yet-naughty performances in films like Sex and Zen Two and Viva Erotica. This bare-it-all portfolio, shot before her "retirement" from appearing nude in films for good, makes a perfect showcase for her famous come-hither persona and her devilish figure. Whether it's bathing underneath a waterfall, posing on the catwalk in her revealing outfit, or brooding half-naked by the lakeside lodge, watching this now-classic portfolio will make you understand why Shu Kei is rightly regarded as the quintessential Hong Kong sex symbol for 1990's.

Injû kyôshi IV aka Angel of Darkness 4 (1996) - Mitsunori Hattori

They said strange things happened around her.
They said she was dangerous.
They said she was a demon.
Now naive little Izumi is about to uncover the truth
behind her life of lies...

Ero Shogun to 21-nin no Aisyou AKA Lusty Shogun's 21 Dolls (1972) - Norifumi Suzuki

"A new Shogun rides into town but instead of taking care of his administrative duties he just gets laid. A lot."

Not exactly sure what this is about, but I'd describe it as a costume drama sex-comedy Pinku. In Japanes,

These screenshots are relatively tame, there's plenty of T&A in the film itself, if that's what you're looking for.

Hera Purple (2001) - Kil-chae Jeong


A woman troubled by vague anxiety consults a psychiatrist. To obtain a faster diagnosis, he uses hypnotism. This results in what is for the audience an extensive series of homicidal sex fantasies. How much of them could possibly be real? Meanwhile, a team of detectives (with funny personalities and "morgue" humor) is investigating a series of very strange murders that seem to parallel the woman's "fantasies".

Showa onnamichi: Rashomon AKA Naked Rashomon (1972) - Chusei Sone

As he had done for Rashamen Oman: Ame No Oranda-zaka and its sequels, former Seijun Suzuki disciple Chusei Sone borrowed his master's screenwriter, Atsushi Yamatoya (Koya No Dacchi Waifu) for this fascinating pinku eiga film. Despite the title, the film bears little in common with the classic Rashomon, and only the second half takes place in the Showa era, but it is nonetheless among the most interesting films of its type. Hideaki Ezumi stars as a powerful marquis named Katsuragawa, whose prostitute mistress (Hitomi Kozue) bears him twins. Being that twins are considered bad luck, the babies are separated at birth, with Ezumi raising the boy and Kozue raising the girl. Nineteen years pass, and the blissfully ignorant twins (also played by Ezumi and Kozue) meet and fall in love. By coincidence, Kozue just happens to be a prostitute like her mother, and the cycle continues. Stylish, surrealistic, and often just plain weird, this Nikkatsu release made a star of Kozue and reinforced Sone's position as the studio's most inventive director.

Furyô anego den: Inoshika Ochô AKA Sex and Fury (1973) - Norifumi Suzuki

Sex & Fury, one of the wildest, most violent, just-plain-entertaining Japanese sexploitation pictures from the 1970s stars smoldering young 'pinky violence' actress Reiko Ike (veteran of the Girl Boss aka Sukeban film series) as Ocho, a gambler and pickpocket in Meiji Era Tokyo. After sheltering a fleeing anarchist, Ocho encounters the three villains responsible for her father's murder, and runs afoul of various yakuza who want her dead. A European spy (beautiful Christina Lindberg, star of Thriller - A Cruel Picture), whose sadistic diplomat boss has his own nefarious plans, complicates matters. A riproaring action saga filled with beautiful bodies, bloody swordplay, and psychedelic imagery -- all beautifully photographed in a number of astonishing setpieces. Directed by Norifumi Suzuki (who fathered the Sukeban genre), Sex & Fury transcends the pop culture realm to achieve genuine art. Followed by the outrageous sequel, Female Yakuza Tale - Inquisition & Torture (also available from Panik House), it's the best film you've never seen!

Graffiante Desiderio AKA Craving Desire (1993) - Sergio Martino

Luigi is engaged to Cinzia, he has a good job and his life runs quietly. But unexpectedly his cousin Sonia knocks at his door. She lived in Venezuela with her parents but they have disappeared and she came back to Italy. She is very young and beautiful and once she loved Luigi. What is he to do?

This film directed by legendary Sergio Martino cannot be compared to his giallo masterpieces of the past but, viewed as an example of the late period of Italian thriller, it has some entertainment value. The movie tells the tale of a young successful Italian Luigi whose career and personal life are turned completely upside down by the arrival of his cousin Sonia. After returning from Venezuela where she experienced something unpleasant involving her family, the voluptuous young girl is allowed to stay in Luigi's apartment and soon an intimate relationship develops. Sonia seems to have power over Luigi, who cancels his planned engagement, thus embarrassing the parents of his original girlfriend.

French Wives (1975) - John Christopher

A x-rated classic from the good old 70's, in an amazing copy. The story is nice and the lovely Tina Russel and Andrea True star. The true is that they don't make porn films anymore. We just have hardcore scenes shot on video, with artificial performes. The classic era had real people in front of the cameras. There were even production values, if you compare whit most of what is done today. You can see that by the beautiful French views and fair cinematography.

Kanzen-naru shiiku aka Perfect Education (1999) - Ben Wada

Schoolgirl Kuniko is kidnapped by a middle-aged man Iwazono when she is jogging. He tells her that he had a failed marriage which leaves him a deep and everlasting scar in his mind. He kidnaps her in search of a perfect marriage and intends to lock her in the room and 'educate' her to perform perfect sex where body and soul are united. With the strong sense of fear and upokorzenie beginning, Kuniko gradually accepts Iwazono who treats her with total respect (except that she is still his prisoner). The distance between the two shortens and their relationship becomes more like that of lovers in spite of the large age difference between them...

Caray Con el Divorcio AKA Hooray for Divorce! (1982) - Juan Bosch

Juan Bosch’s hysterical Spanish comedy Caray con el divorcio (1982) is a madcap ode to infidelity. Bosch’s male characters do everything possible to wriggle free of their marital obligations, while their shrewish wives cluck and try to ruin their fun...

Um ihren Unterricht über die Themen "Recht und Moral" anschaulicher und interessanter zu machen, berichtet eine ältere Lehrerin über fünf Ereignisse. So erfahren die wissbegierigen Schülerinnen etwas über den sexuellen Alltag von Nachhilfelehrern, werden mit den Aktivitäten eines triebhaften Mädchen ebenso konfrontiert wie mit dem unschönen Verhalten eines Miststücks, dürfen die Spezies "Exhibitionist" unter die Lupe nehmen und erhalten Einblicke in ein amouröses Doppelleben.

The Berlin Affair (1985) - Liliana Cavani

Review I

In 1938 Berlin, Gudrun Landgrebe, wife of Nazi functionary Kevin McNally, begins taking art lessons. She makes the acquaintance of another student, Japanese ambassador's daughter Mio Takaki. Soon afterwards, the two women begin a passionate lesbian affair. This leads to a chain reaction of disaster and tragedy, culminating with the inevitable intervention of the Gestapo. Despite the film's galloping sexual passions, The Berlin Affair is an exercise in aloofness, keeping the characters at arm's length-surprising, considering that the director was Liliana Cavani, auteur of the erotic classic The Night Porter (1974). The film was based on The Buddhist Cross, a novel by Junichiro Tanizaki. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
