Physical description:

This scene from Shigenobu's excellent shunga Ama no Ukibashi - 'The Floating Bridge of Heaven' (3 vols w/ 21 works and text) presents a chief priest making love to a male najimi (regular partner). Their passionate encounter is emphasized by the red kukuri makura (stuffed roll pillow) which has fallen off the bedding.
