Pulling from collections all over the world, reproducing images in gorgeous full color, and bridging scholarly dialogue between Japan and Europe, Bru’s monograph emphasizes the import of transnationalism and erotica in the story of Modernist artistic production.Besides "shunga" literally meaning a picture of spring (sex), the word is also a contraction of shunky -higi-ga ( ), the Japanese pronunciation for a Chinese set of twelve scrolls depicting the twelve sexual acts that the crown prince would perform as an expression of yin yang. The artist, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, produced works based on it, which often include octopuses among the creatures being evaded by the bare-breasted diver.

In the prior installment, Qing had sex with a virginal nun, then bedded a concubine, Lotus (Serina Hayakawa) and conspired with her to rub out her dwarf husband, Wu Da-Lang (Ng Chi-Hung). Like its predecessor, this no-holds-barred sequel from Hong Kong - a piece of ultra-exploitation adapted from the famed 17th century Chinese novel The Plum in the Golden Vase - attained instant notoriety for layering on graphic violence and sex in copious quantities. Shunga, as a subset of ukiyo-e, was enjoyed by all social groups in the Edo period, despite being out of favor with the shogunate.Goncourt did, however, know its original context, which he describes in a passage of his monograph on Hokusai.
