Back cover text:
The pederast and the samurai... are the same man.

Here, in an anthology of exquisite tales about a rarely discussed side of the life of the Samurai, the struggles of the flesh within an ancient and unrelenting code of honor are depicted as only the Japanese know how - action-filled, erotic; a glimpse into a forbidden world ruled by the sword... and the phallus.

Graphically illustrated.
