Background[edit]

The "Apartment Wife" theme in Pink cinema was started by Nikkatsu with their first film in the Roman Porno line, Apartment Wife: Affair In the Afternoon (1971). Independent pink film studios began making their own "Apartment Wife" films, and in the 1990s, Toshiki Satō became closely associated with the genre, marking the films with his style and making the series his own. Besides Apartment Wife: Adulterous Passion, other "Apartment Wife" films by Satō include Apartment Wife: Midday Adultery (1997), New Apartment Wife: Adultery is the Taste of Honey (Only for Tonight) (1999), and Apartment Wife: Moans from Next Door (2000).[4]

In 2000, with the leadership of director Mitsuru Meike, the pink film community organized a showcase to feature their films. Planned to be a yearly event, the competition was called the P-1 Grand-Prix. Apartment Wife: Adulterous Passion was the winner of the first of these events.[3]

Apartment Wife: Adulterous Passion was released theatrically on January 28, 2000.[5] It was released on DVD in Japan on October 25, 2002, both as a single release and as part of a box-set, volume 1, of the works of director Toshiki Satō.[6][7]
