Tohjiro's Output


I've been a fan of Tohjiro's work/output for quite some time. He's taken porn in very unusual directions. Recently, "output" describes the content he's focusing on.


Frankly, I don't find excessive vomiting terribly erotic, although it does possess a certain Grand Guignol audacity.


The freak show dominates the director's work and, to some extent, that of other Dogma 'auteurs'. Japan's bizarre censorship laws permit explicit focus on the anus and its expulsions while draping quivering mosaic shapes over the vagina and its surroundings.


Ultra-hard S/M remains a constant on Tohjiro's horizon. Although the covers convey a rich aesthetic, the productions themselves often lack such riches -- reduced, unfortunately, to handheld, poorly lit tableaux.


My introduction to Tohjiro was a screening (approximately ten years ago) of the best piece of lesbian erotica I've ever seen. It was a film he produced prior to forming Dogma and involved two beautiful women in a traditional Japanese setting.

  1. Never understood why the Japanese and the Germans are the world champs at extreme porn. It might be the rep both cultures have for intellect, manners, and restraint.

    I've seen those... um.... Japanese newscasts that are a porn sub-genre. It might be that the Japanese are just very inventive. Excuse my while I go watch my new 43-inch Samsung plasma.

    Sorry Phantom but my com-girl-t here is going to be, as you would expect, very straightforward and unimaginitive,: "I DESPERATELY WANT TO BUGGER ALL THE INCREDIBLE GORGEOUS SEXY YOUNG GIRLS IN THOSE PICTURES". it was the obvious and only thing i could think of to say.

  3. Mac -- I'd say it's got a lot to do with private/public contrasts. Many of the "newscasts" you referred to are actually products of the same company I'm talking about here, Dogma.
