"As women become the more powerful sex in society, there's been a growing number
of masochistic men who have a yearning to be subjugated," says Makoto, a
spokeswoman for IZM, Japan's prime purveyor of porno featuring tall and
powerfully built female stars, or flicks about women who rape men. "In some of
our martial arts adult videos, the female stars don't even take their clothes
off and there are no climax scenes. What you do get, though, is big girls using
all their might to pound little guys, put them into strangleholds and generally
beat them, which provides all the excitement masochistic men need to find
IZM typically matches gigantic women up against the frailest of masochistic men
with an average height of just 155 centimeters. Bruising and broken bones are
little more than occupational hazards in the brutal babe business.
"Just the other day, one of our actors ended up with a couple of broken ribs,"
Makoto tells Spa! "I was really surprised when we'd finished filming the guy
came over in agony and said, 'Aagh, that was bliss!'"
Adult moviemaker mouthpiece Makoto says IZM's offices are flooded daily with
offers from men yearning to be clobbered on camera by a big, beautiful, though
not necessarily bountiful, babe.
"Talking to a lot of these guys and you learn that there's a typical pattern
where a lot of them were traumatized by beatings lashed out by their mothers or
a female teacher when they were little children. Now they're adults, being
subdued by a powerful woman gives them a sexual thrill," Makoto tells Spa!
"Perhaps it's fundamentally a matter of Oedipal complexes."
