Some true slime fir the Hisayasu Sato fans.

 

"Concerns the perfect couple. Of course, they don’t know that they’re the perfect couple because they each keep a “terrible” secret from the other. This prevents them from enjoying a normal sex life. The husband is impotent unless he can watch another couple having sex, and the wife pleasures herself to thoughts of being raped while someone else watches. Eventually, the voyeuristic husband and the exhibitionist wife confess their secrets to each other and realize how silly they’ve been when they were clearly made for each other." - The Internet

"This softcore effort from cult pinku-eiga director Hisayasu Sato concerns the perfect couple. Of course, they don’t know that they’re the perfect couple because they each keep a “terrible” secret from the other. This prevents them from enjoying a normal sex life. The husband is impotent unless he can watch another couple having sex, and the wife pleasures herself to thoughts of being raped while someone else watches. Eventually, the voyeuristic husband and the exhibitionist wife confess their secrets to each other and realize how silly they’ve been when they were clearly made for each other." - TMDB

"Yes, the title is absurd, but Pleasure Masturbation: New Wife Version desperately deserves a remastered, subtitled release. This is peak Hisayasu Satô in terms of style. Masashi Inayoshi is on cinematography and the film looks as gorgeous as it does grim. There are some absolutely staggering shots, including the nude masturbation set against a Tokyo skyline seen in the poster. Like Wife in Mourning, colours are used beautifully. Instead of tinted flashbacks, we get tinted fantasies. The world turns blue, morphing into a dildo-drenched dreamworld. The sex drowns in lurid pinks and deep purples. The framing is incredible. POV shots are used to great effect. The music is subtle, seeping in at just the right moments, making already intense sequences even more intoxicating. Satô regular Kyôko Godai delivers a script that is essentially Satôfied marriage counselling. It is dark, but doesn't devolve into the sleaze of something like The Bedroom. Argh! I would give my right arm for a subtitled Hisayasu Satô box set lovingly released by a boutique distributor. Please make it happen, movie gods. My arm awaits you.

Bonus thing that doesn't fit into the review: This was made the same year as Wife in Mourning and I'm pretty sure the films share a few indoor locations. This tripped me out a little having watched them so close together." - Some Dude Named Dave Jackson

"Why does Sato make an unironically good film and then titles it some shit like Fuck Buddies: College Dorm Rapists!" - Some Dude On Letterboxd
