The Slave Ship (奴隷船, Dorei-sen) is a Japanese mystery-pink film directed by Satoshi Kaneda and released in 2010. It is an adaptation of the Oniroku Dan novella Dorei-bune (written with the same kanji), bearing pseudo-autobiographic elements as in most Oniroku Dan works. The film featured Kyōko Aizome, a pioneer of the Japanese adult video market in the 1980s. In 2012, the film had a DVD release in the US by Switchblade Pictures.[1]


Onimata Kan (Tarō Suwa) is a middle-aged writer of BDSM literature fame and he hosts in a Tokyo Bay houseboat named the "Slave Ship" swinger-style BDSM parties attended by couples. When he pays a visit to the Umezu onsen owned by a couple who are frequenters of the Slave Ship, he learns that the elderly wife Kikue (Kyōko Aizome) has moved to a mental institution. Her husband Zenzaburō claims that she is suffering due to abnormal interest of Kazuo Kitagawa, a married young admirer attending the Slave Ship parties. Onimata Kan is intrigued and finds Kitagawa, learning from him the intimate aspects of his dangerous liaison with Kikue.
