Shunshoku hatsune no ume (1842, 春色初音之六女, English Spring Colours: First Cry of the Warbler on the Plum or Spring Passions: First Cries of Six Women) is "an erotic reworking of the phenomenally popular romantic novel in the ninjo-bon genre, Shunshoku Umegoyomi." The book was written by the same author as the original, Tamenaga Shunsui, the illustrations were designed by Utagawa Kunisada.

Three of the illustrations are vulvic faces, phallic heads in which heads are reversed with genitalia and vice versa; her head is a vulva, his head is a phallus, her vulva is a face, his phallus is a face.
