In this powerful erotic tableau from the Tsuhi no hinagata series by Hokusai (1760-1849), we sense the driving force of sexual urges. The young man literally propels himself into the gasping form of the amorous older woman – scattered tissue-paper at lower right attesting to the fact that they have been at this sort of thing, for some time.
From the conversation it is clear that the woman is a widow, and this is her adopted son. She remarks that the lad is sexually stronger than she had expected – and hopes that he will continue to delight her with all the specified vaginal caresses that she so desires.
