This page is dedicated to grotesque shunga such as "The Hell of Great Heat" and the series Manpuku Wagojin (The Gods of Intercourse c.1821) by Katsushika Hokusai and Night Procession of the Hundred Demons (c. 1836) by Utagawa Kuniyoshi.


History of my research

Early March 2010, I sent Paul Rumsey this page with grotesque shunga [1].

Paul said:

The image that you sent[2], which it says is "artist unknown" is by the same artist who did the 1/1 image, Katsukawa Shuncho (or Shunsho) - the image with the sort of Hydra penis monster.
There is a book in a local second hand shop on Shunga which has six old b&w illustrations by this artist from a series.
The pictures are all of the same long horizontal format as the penis Hydra picture.
  1. The Penis Hydra (1/1)
  2. A composition with the image you sent (6/6) with the penis man with his stick on his sholders on the right.
  3. A similar composition with him holding the stick upright.
  4. A vagina faced woman with a baby penis in her arms.
  5. a man riding on a sort of penis headed tiger which has two penises for tails.
  6. a man looking out of a window at a penis fox dancing in the garden.

Man with very large and long phallus head

More illustrations[4]

  • Dieses ungewöhnliche Bild von Katsukawa Shunshō (1726-1792) enthält eine Anspielung auf die mythologische Szene, in der [Kushi-] Inada-hime (hier Iyada-hime = „Prinzessin Rühr-mich-nicht-an“) von der achtköpfigen Schlange Yamata no Orochi (hier Yamara no Orochi = „Achtpenis Schlange“) bedroht wird.
  • „Bildnis des hodenstraffenden Brecheisen-Penis-Gottes“ (Kanateko mara jinbari myōjin 鉄梃陰茎腎張明神) von Utagawa Toyokuni I., 1823 Bildquelle: AK-Antiek [2010/9]
  • Vulva-Gottheit auf Phalli thronend von Utagawa Kunisada, ca. 1840. Bildquelle: Nichibunken [2009/8]
  • Götter der ehelichen Harmonie (Wagōjin). Der Text besagt in etwa: „Harmonie erzeugt alles Glück, Berührung versöhnt Yang und Yin (Mann und Frau).“ Holzschnitt von Katsushika Hokusai, ca. 1821. Bildquelle: Nichibunken [2009/8]
  • „Geschlechtsverkehr der bösen Geister (ama no jaku)“ Shunga von Utagawa Kunisada, Jahr und Bildquelle unbekannt. Ama no jaku sind Kobolde, die zu böswillig allerlei Verdrehungen bewirken, also „perverse“ Geister im wörtlichen Sinne.
  • Phallus-Mönch (Sakuzōzu), Buchillustration (Blockdruck) von Katsukawa Shunshō (1726-1792) aus der Serie Hyaku bobo gatari (in etwa „Geschichten von hundert Mösen“), 1771
