Tokyo Sex Underground
Creation, Apr 26, 2001 - Photography - 128 pages
Sex clubs and hostess bars, love hotels and soap parlours, fetish parties and porno factories-photographer Romain Slocombe, a frequent visitor to Japan in recent years, has documented every aspect of this scene. Bondage models, porn actresses, prostitutes and party girls are featured in over 80 revealing photographs.
"Tokyo Sex Underground "is a sometimes poignant, always provocative collection of Slocombe's images, forming probably the most fascinating glimpse of Japanese erotic culture ever provided by an outsider.
Romain Slocombe's other photographic collections include "City Of The Broken Dolls "(Creation Books, 1997). He has also directed several films about Japan, and his graphic novel "Prisoner Of The Red Army "is now acknowledged as an S/M classic.
With an introduction by Peter Sotos. English/Japanese language edition.
