Tentacle Erotica: Prepare For Some Notoriously Graphic Octopus Images..!

In addition to one of our most read articles about the influence of Hokusai’s iconic The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife on a whole new genre called Tentacle Erotica (shokushu goukan 触手強姦, aka. Tentacle Rape, Tentacle Hentai or Tentacle Porn) we have included more exciting examples below (Beware: some of these images are very graphic!).

In contrast to shunga, which is an art form, tentacle erotica is a kind of pornography. It is originated in Japan and merges conventional pornography with components of bestiality, fantasy, horror and science-fiction.

Tentacle erotica is often added to horror or hentai animations, with tentacled beings (often imaginary creatures) involved in sexual acts, mostly with females. In some cases, the portrayed intercourse is consensual but most of the time the emphasis is on rape.

This exploitative genre is rather popular in Japan, and therefore subject of parody. Partly because of the internet, Japanese films (Fig.1) that feature tentacle erotica have also become popular in the West among genre devotees. Elements of tentacle erotica can also be found in the furry fandom.*

The earliest examples of tentacle erotica, long before animated pornography, can already be found in the 18th century book illustrations of ukiyo-e masters such as Kitao Shigemasa and Katsukawa Shuncho. But the most famous one is without a doubt the illustration from the 1814 novel Kinoe no komatsu, written and illustrated by Katsushika Hokusai, commonly known as The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife (Fig.2).

This so-called shunga design has been reworked by countless artists over the centuries. A wonderful contemporary example is the woodblock print designed by Masami Teraoka called Sarah and Octopus/Seventh Heaven‘ (2001) from the series ‘Waves and Plagues‘ (Fig.3).

There is an interesting discrepancy between the western audiences, who experience Hokusai’s image as an involuntary encounter, and the Japanese of the Edo period who saw it is as consensual.  The latter would have understood the dialogue that expresses the mutual enjoyment of both the diver and the octopuses. They also would have recognized the print as a reference to the legend of the female abalone diver Tamatori.

The heroine Tamatori, who has entered the Dragon King’s Palace, swimming through the waves holding an outstretched sword and the Treasure Pearl

Fig.4. 'The heroine Tamatori' (later remake) by Utagawa Kuniyoshi

In this tale, Tamatori steals a jewel from the Dragon King (Fig.4). When she escapes she is chased by the Dragon King and his sea-life minions (including octopuses).

Contemporary censorship in Japan dates to the Meiji period. These so-called “obscenity” laws are still in force today but how this term is interpreted has not remained constant. Exposed genitalia are still illegal but the variety of acceptable sexual acts is now broad in comparison with other progressive countries.

The artist Toshio Maeda (Fig.5), one of the pioneers within the tentacle porn industry, found a handy way around the “obscenity” law. Instead of creating sensual scenes between humans, he included creatures with tentacles. Their “penis” tentacles were just part of the creature, who don’t have a gender. Toshio noted: “You know, the creatures, they don’t have a gender. A creature is a creature. So it is not obscene – not illegal.”

The people who unsubscribed from the Shunga Gallery were really stupid. They originally signed up for Japanese erotic art. Well, this my friends, is erotic art, and hentai or tentacle porn is inclusive within this wonderful website. If you cannot handle this type of art, then go stick your head in a hole or watch FOX News you twits. Sterling

Indeed it is. I've got a suggestion that would make for an amusing article (and I know this has been touched on briefly in other articles), but would it be possible if you could make one that specifically delves into the world of Hentai parodies of Western Animated films & TV shows? There are a couple of artists I could suggest. Oh, and by the way, i'm glad this site exists.

The sexual impact of the octopus (the threat and terror, the surprise and animal attraction; but certainly also the wonderful possibilities of these animals for overwhelming embraces both in imagination and reality (I once met a couple who performed it- but am on their suggestion to make a movie out of it, I didn't go along because I thought the imagination was the limit for me. As far as I know they left for America and there has never been any further contact. I find the beautiful dynamics and the amount of art devoted to this very special to experience. A fascinating and powerful article.

I absolutely love this article, and am so saddened by the number of amazing art pieces which seem to have been censored or deleted since I last looked through it.

Thanks AJ. The images have not been deleted or censored. We recently had an update and the programmers haven't invented a way yet to restore the pictures to their former glory. But the pictures will all be visible again soon.

This new selection of tentacle eroticism is remarkable. The rape fantasmagory is obvious, and I like it. Of course, some "woke" and /or puritans may object. I will subscribe to the premium part of the site as soon as possible.

Thanks Bruno,. Yes, some will argue that the eroticism and violence is unmotivated. Anyway, I'm very pleased and honored that you will join our mission by becoming a premium member..

I wonder what people who unsubscribed after seeing your "tentacle" magnificent post were looking for at Shunga Gallery. The blurry limits between erotism and pornography,, between comics and "fine arts" will be endlessly discussed but the are just classifications for market, age limit, moral and censorship reasons. There is art in everything in our life, from the kitchen stove to under the bedsheets, and some talented people manage to put in on paper or represent it in any other graphic medium, symbolically or explicitly,. Those who cannot take sex in art probably have problems to face it in their life, Not all sex representations are art, but an artist being necessarily self proclaimed and no one having "the" definition of art, let everyone decide for oneself. Thanks Shunga Gallery for this exhaustive tentacles compilation which contains many real masterpieces!

Thanks Olivier, and I absolutely agree with your statement. What makes something art i.m.h.o. is a combination of craftsmanship and the integrity and ingenuity in the execution of an idea. But although these standards are largely defensible, they also remain subjective. I'm pleased you appreciate the article!

Very interesting collection of "octopussies" and some very interesting graphic work. Yet, nothing comes even close to Hokusai's Tako To Ama! How anyone could or can see in Hokusai's piece a rape scene, and miss the obvious pleasure of the diver, is, to me just a sign of a sick, puritan, twisted mind. Having the translation of the Japanese text would help set the record straight, of course... or one simply needs to be versed in the art of cunnilingus to appreciate it for what it is. Thank you Marijn for another worthy addition to the SG.
