Default True Story of a Woman in Soapland: Tear! (Takashi Kodama, 1987)

Jitsuroku Soap-j Scandal: Saku!

A art teacher begins an affair with an old student of his that is working at a soapland* Things get sticky, literally, when his other mistress and his wife finds out about it! It all leads to a downbeat, kick in the balls ending.

This one looks to be tape sourced, but isn't in that bad of shape. No optical fogging in this one either. 64 mins.

*What is a soapland you ask? Let's let my pal wikipedia tell us:

Soapland (ソープランド, sōpurando), or sōpu, is a Japanglish word constructed from the two English words "soap" and "land" and is part of Japan's nighttime entertainment industry, also known as Mizu shōbai.[10]

There are various kinds of soaplands, and they are usually located in complexes with varying numbers of soaplands. Well-known complexes are located in Susukino in Sapporo, Yoshiwara and Kabukicho in Tokyo, Kawasaki, Kanazuen in Gifu, Ogoto in Shiga, and Fukuhara in Kobe, Sagaminumata in Odawara, and Nakasu in Fukuoka, but there are many other areas, especially in onsen ("hot springs") towns. Although the main clientele for soaplands are males, there are also a few soaplands specifically for female clients. Prices for a session at a soapland vary depending on location, time of day, rank of provider, and length of the session.

Legal loophole:

Although any sex between 'unspecified persons' is prohibited, it is not between 'specified persons' (acquaintances). In his book, Fuzoku Eigyo Torishimari (Control of Sex Business Operations), Kansai University professor Yoshikazu Nagai, documents that Soaplands exploit this to provide intercourse. The customers pay an entry fee to 'use the bathing facilities' and a separate fee to the masseuse. Whilst the massage takes place, the two become 'acquainted' so any paid sexual services that follow are not viewed as prostitution as defined by the law. This interpretation of the law has been in use since the 1960s.


Soaplands began when explicit prostitution in Japan became illegal in 1958, as a simple form of bath where women washed men's bodies. They were originally known as toruko-buro, meaning Turkish bath. Following a 1984 campaign by Turkish scholar Nusret Sancaklı (JA, TR) denouncing the use of this name for brothels, the new name "soapland" was the winning entry in a nationwide contest to rename them.
...there you go, you're welcome for the brain boost.
