MANNEQUIN HEAD
Sometimes a little convincing is all it takes.

This colorful poster for Masaru Konuma’s sexual drama Nureta tsubo, aka Wet Vase, aka Wet Tattooed Vagina, depicts star Naomi Tani in a tableau taken directly from the movie. In the scene, Tani becomes sexually aroused by watching a man perform oral sex on a mannequin. Tani is ashamed and embarrassed at first, but the guy just keeps at it until she basically collapses in an overstimulated heap. It’s really a beautifully shot scene that by itself is worth the price of renting the flick, in our opinion. Nureta tsubo is part of Nikkatsu’s roman porno stable, but it’s an atypical example—at least, it seems so to us. There are fewer of the extravagances one might expect from a film starring Japan’s Queen of S&M. But that doesn’t mean it’s conservative—on the contrary, it’s plenty kinky. We mentioned that mannequin licking thing, right? See for yourself. We’ve posted some screen grabs from that amazing scene below. Nureta tsubo opened in Japan this month in 1976.

AT THE END OF HER ROPE
Just keep reminding yourself it’s only a movie.

The above promo art is for the Japanese sexploitation flick Dan Oniroku nawa to hada, aka Rope and Skin. It’s one of many films based on the work of S&M author Oniroku Dan. This one concerns a card-dealing employee of a yakuza clan who plans to leave her criminal life behind and marry a chef. And that’s all fine and dandy, but when she exposes the leader of a rival clan as a card cheat, his revenge leaves her love murdered. Things get worse when she attempts to free a girl from prostitution, but ends up captured and tortured. But you can’t keep a good avenging angel down, and that means eventually she’s sprung and of course immediately sets about getting a little payback—toplessly, with mucho arterial spray. Rope and Skin would be Tani's last film after a career that included such efforts as Wet Vase, A New Wife’s Hell, and She-Beasts & Warm Bodies. Whenever we watch these gorefests we’re both repelled (there’s a lot of torture) and attracted (there’s a lot of nudity), but mostly just amazed (did we mention that torture thing?). Rope and Skin/Dan Oniroku nawa to hada premiered in Japan today in 1979.

New York Yankees outfielder Mickey Mantle dies of complications from cancer, after receiving a liver transplant. He was one of the greatest baseball players ever, but he was also an alcoholic and played drunk, hungover, and unprepared.
