Synopsis: A gymnast has sex with her coach the night before a big event. Since it was unprotected it makes her body turn maternal and affects her performance (?!). After the loss they go their separate ways though each experiences rather limited success until chance brings them back together.

The lovely and talented Junko Asahina starred in the excellent sex farce I Love It From Behind directed by Kôyû Ohara, and this would be a good double bill. Kôyû keeps things moving and always interesting with the soapish story merely a framework to support lots of nudity, sex, and kinky humor. There is abundant flesh on display (mostly female) from various cast members staggered throughout.

This may be the most laid back, good natured, and generally entertaining of Kôyû’s films made available to date. Most likely suitable for mixed gender viewing; something that cannot be said of other Kôyû productions such as Fairy In A Cage. It may contain more political satire than his other efforts, especially with regard to Japanese corporate structure.

The DVD:

Another winner from Impulse pictures in 2.35:1 anamorphic Japanese 2.0 mono. Excellent removable English subtitles are quite hilarious, and includes liner notes from historian Jasper Sharp.
