Shogun's Joys of Torture (徳川女刑罰史, Tokugawa onna keibatsu-shi) is a 1968 Japanese film in the ero guro (erotic-grotesque) subgenre of Toei's style of Pink film. Directed by Teruo Ishii, the film is considered a precursor to Toei's ventures into the "Pinky violent" style in the early 1970s.[1] It was followed by Shogun's Sadism in 1976.



In May 2005, Shogun's Joys of Torture was released on region 1 DVD.[2]
