Synopsis: A young school teacher takes on a job as a web cam girl to help pay off her debt.
This episode opens with an introduction from its lead actress Megu Fujiura, who is most known for her work as actress in JAV (Japanese Adult Video). When Megu Fujiura’s character the school teacher is not teaching or showing off her large breasts on her web cam. She is being groped by random strangers on the train. Story wise this one is surprisingly more fleshed out then your standard soft core romp. Besides the erotica angle. The plot also delves into other areas like blackmail. The first blackmailer is one the teachers students, while the other is one of her co-workers. One of the more interesting aspects of this story what each blackmailer expects to gain from their power play.
The sex scenes are all well choreographed, especially the scenes in which the school teacher character gets groped on the train. Director Tadashi Kyôya does a great job setting up the best camera angles for maximum arousal. These camera set ups also plays into the voyeuristic aspect of the story. When all is said and done, Tokyo Train Girls: Private Lessons, is a well made piece of erotica that never strays too far away from its strengths.
