There is a raw, primal energy in Japanese erotica art that is awe inspiring. Gigantic, savage-looking penises, some almost as large as their owners, plunging into equally cavernous vaginas carried by females who display a shy coyness that is quite a contrast to the carnal heat portrayed in the artworks. Quite a contrast from the peaceful serenity of a bonsai garden or a Japanese Tea Ceremony!
The symbolism inherent in the artworks is quite powerful. After all, during sexual congress a person’s genitalia are often the dominant focus of one’s energy so, in a sense, it is quite appropriate to portray the genitals as larger than life and with characters of their own.
