Synopsis :

A modest salesman, who lives in a suburb of Tokyo and works in a bed shop, becomes a member of the the club "Bondage". For months he accepts that dominatrixes unexpectedly and repeatedly intervene in his everyday life to humiliate him according to his wishes. The result exceeds all the masochist’s expectations, and he decides, despite all the warnings, to terminate his contract with the club. But early contract termination is definitely not an option.

“A mild-mannered family man with a secret taste for S&M finds himself pursued by a gang of ruthless dominatrices — each with a unique talent — in this hilarious and bizarre take on the sex comedy from Japanese comedy giant Hitoshi Matsumoto.”
