The Portrait of a Masochist Starring Ai Uehara
with English Subtitles
“Ai (AI UEHARA) is worried that sex with her husband has become too routine. It’s lacking in passion to the point where after lovemaking she frequently will ‘comfort’ herself in front of a mirror. These ‘comforting’ times have become daily occurrences. One night Ai was invited by her friend Miyuki to a dinner party. There, she met the handsome Katayama who soon became an obsession that never strayed from her sight. The feeling was mutual to the point where Ai felt that Katayama knew her sexual shortcomings through and through.
Ai soon made the decision to act upon her desires and made a visit to his home in order to begin her ‘training’. Just like her private romance in front of a mirror, training began tame, but soon progressed into audacious acts of indecency. Soon enough she was instructed to greet a delivery man while wearing absolutely nothing followed by performing fellatio on him. The indecency continued with her being left in her birthday suit in a parking lot. Katayama even instructed Ai to perform sexual acts with his coworker while filming it.
Pleasure and suffering soon became one, but is it enough to keep her satiated and sane?”
-Translation of the blurb for THE PORTRAIT OF A MASOCHIST from ORGA's official site.
Every single time it comes to review an ORGA title, I have this urge to note that the movie in question is their magnum opus. It really does feel that way! The quality of their output is such in a class by itself that I'm still both mildly shell-shocked and rather elated to know there are totally independent Japanese AV production companies capable of pushing out releases of this caliber. You'd think anything they put out is backed by a big conglomerate, but it's fortunately not the case.
If I had to guess though, I could definitely see the chances being moderate-to-high that ORGA may have private backers. Perhaps older and very well-off men with peculiar tastes in drama titles and are happy with whatever ORGA outputs so long as it sticks somewhat to their fetishes.
In the case of ORGA titles, the one thing that connects pretty much all of them are women in extremely submissive roles. Masochist play in particular is a major aspect of what their drama movies are about. Of course there are some exceptions such as CRIME AND PUNISHMENT where MAKI HOJO starred as a very dominant call girl, but that title also had her 'training' the docile tabloid magazine reporter YUU KAWAKAMI who herself eventually became a fiery lady of the night.
THE PORTRAIT OF A MASOCHIST, as the name implies, is not a title where women have the upper hand. Just like our recent controversial update starring KUREA HASUMI, AI UEHARA stays soundly on the submissive side of the equation. She's sexually frustrated due to a husband with the libido of a true herbivorous man. 'Sexy times' are infrequent and uneventful and masturbating in front of a mirror after sex is starting to get old.
PORTRAIT beautifully combines the themes of infidelity and extreme masochistic training for about 130 minutes of visual bliss. ORGA continues the trend started with KUREA's title with extreme ENF and CMNF eye candy. AI UEHARA remains stark naked for a good deal of the production including a brief episode where she's outside in her birthday suit by orders of Katayama, her master.
Like other ORGA titles, THE PORTRAIT OF A MASOCHIST is quality upon quality with little in terms of skimping. Here we again see AI matched with a female costar played by the AV newcomer MIYUKI OJIMA. MIYUKI plays the current mistress of Katayama and is the woman we see in the first actual sex scene. Take note both MIYUKI and AI's caterwauling can be *very* loud at times. The audio even crackled during some of their shrieking! Thus, we strongly recommend during the volume down during the sex scenes.
It's sad to know that AI UEHARA retired from being a Japanese AV actress. We're awfully late in showing her releases, but show them we will! We've more planned both from ORGA and other makers. Personally, I think she has one of the best bodies of any AV star active or otherwise: super pale skin, mildly voluptuous thanks to fantastic even fat-distribution genetics, breasts that are big but manageable, a butt that wars can be fought over, and last, but not least by any means, a very symmetrical face.
