Japanese Counterculture

This chapter presents Terayama Shūji’s two narratives that oppose the idea of masochism which deinstitutionalize social relations. These narratives are found in the play Kegawa no Marii (1967) and the film Sho o suteyo machi e deyō (1971). Deinstutionalization in masochism refers to the diffusing of laws into a new set of negotiable contracts between both parties. Prostitution is a form of masochism, in which seeking pleasure is based on the negotiation of a mutual contract between both parties.

Keywords:   Terayama Shūji, masochism, deinstutionalization, contracts, prostitution
