Famous real-life stripper Sayuri Ichijo appears as herself in this fictional account of her daily life. The story involves Ichijo’s relationships with two men: Her boyfriend, and the strip-club owner. Ichijo considers her work in striptease to be an art-form and pushes the boundaries of legality. Harumi, a younger stripper determined to outdo Ichijo, contributes to the ever-increasing extremity of the strip acts, which result in continuous problems with the police, and numerous arrests.
Wet Lust is a 1972 Japanese film in Nikkatsu’s Roman porno series, directed by Tatsumi Kumashiro and starring the famous stripper Sayuri Ichijo as herself, and co-starring Kazuko Shirakawa and Hiroko Isayama. Considered one of the best films in the series, in 1999 Japanese critics voted it one of the 100 best Japanese films of the 20th century.
Hailed as a masterpiece of Pinku/Roman Porno cinema and far more erotic than some offerings, Ichijo Sayuri: Wet Desire is a surprisingly good if relatively unknown Roman Porno, at least outside Japan. Tatsumi Kumashiro does a superb job with the direction. Hiroko Isayam (Harumi) won an award from Kinema Jumpo journal; proving the acting and direction talent on display.
