The story starts with office worker Takashi, who shares a drink one night with two women (Mina and Sakura). Fate intervenes and he subsequently ends up marrying Sakura (played by busty JAV Idol, Reiko Yamaguchi). The newlywed couple move into Takashi’s family home (shared with his sister, father and grandfather), but Sakura’s nymphomaniac sex drive soon starts to cause tensions. When Takashi starts to falter in his marital duties, Sakura turns to the rest of the family in order to satisfy her nympho lust….

From Lisa Paul Streitfeld's review in NY Arts of Thomas McEvilley's new book: The Triumph of Anti-Art: Conceptual and Performance Art in the Formation of Postmodernism: "...Mark Kostabi's cynical conceptual art performance piece on his Manhattan cable television show where he invites critics to title his non-art objects. Those who once had a crucial role as adversary are now participants in the celebrity-obsessed shadow that has swallowed up authenticity in art. Kostabi has taken out a full-page ad in Art Forum as proof of this public triumph of the inauthentic. Is this public undermining of the critical apparatus the logical conclusion of Anti-Art?"
