      The Fruits of Passion 1974 R18+ b&w
      "Erotic art-house fare with a political backdrop"

      The lecherous and wealthy Sir Stephen (Klaus Kinski) sends his young lover O (Isabelle Illiers) to a brothel in Southern China, so she can prove her unconditional love and obedience to him. While O is subjected to a variety of erotically humiliating and misogynistic experiences in this surreally pittoresque environment, a local rebellion stemming from resentment towards foreign imperialism arises, and an impoverished young man joins the revolution just to afford a night with O.

      Booked only for for the surreally pittoresque environment. Its a classic.

      Was soaking naked in an Onsen in a mountain village of 200, when my rice farmer friend casually asked "What type of pornography are you into?".
      I'd never been asked that before. And certainly not by a naked Japanese male!

      I miss Japan! It's different & often unexpected.

      • The strangest/best holiday I've ever had.

          Sometimes we need to be taken out of our comfort zone & usual ways, to really experience life! That's how Japan is for me.

          An elderly woman in an interesting poor area of Osaka, suddenly grabbed my hand & dragged me up the old pedestrian shopping street. I had been trying on old Yukata (cotton Kimono like robes), on my way to breakfast. (Buying used clothes indicates a person must be very poor - something I realised later.)
          She took me to a traditional "drag" show where the men danced & mined to old Japanese music, while wearing Kimono. She paid for my entry & wouldn't let me leave! That was just the start of a very unusual & unforgettable day (for both of us).

            @the INFIDEL: Thanks Bruce.

            Came here to see one of your 'this is me in Japan' stories, I knew you wouldn't disappoint.

            • @OzBragain: Thanks.
              All I can do for the moment is replay wonderful, unusual memories of a land & people I love.

              Watched Aso-San (Mt Aso in Kyushu) on TV this morning - erupting. Its a volcano I climbed over, fell in love with, & where I had my first Onsen experience. It will always be special to me.
