On May 18th 1936, Abe Sada killed her lover by “erotic asphyxia” then cut off his member and carved his name in her flesh. In a very militarized Japan, the press was very interested in this crime with erotic and transgressive accents.

The murder has become a classic in Japanese culture; news of this crime spread a made up image of Japan – where love and sexual urges are liberated – to the West.
